Netgear Gateway Router RT314/RT311
Netgear's RT314 is a four-port gateway router targeted at the small home or small office network.
Tested on a Netgear RT314 running firmware versions 3.24 and 3.25. Any hardware running this firmware (RT-311 also runs
the same firmware). Any product running ZyXel-RomPager web server 3.02 or earlier is probably also vulnerable.
The Netgear RT314 Gateway Router (FW v3.25) runs a web server (ZyXEL-RomPager/3.02) for easy user configuration. This
web server is vulnerable to the standard Cross Site Scripting problems seen in multiple web servers (noted in CERT
CA-2000-02 from two years ago). Though it may be difficult to exploit (attacker would need to know
the internal address of the victim's router), it still opens the possibility that an attacker could gain unauthorized
access to the router, and possibly reconfigure it to allow remote access.
