Issue :

Memory leak in 3COM DSL routers

Affected product :

OfficeConnect Remote 812 ADSL Router

Affected Firware :

1.1.7

Inmune firwamre :

1.1.9

Description :

3Com develops OfficeConnect 812 DSL routers that are widely used in
Spanish ADSL lines . There is a flaw in the 1.1.7 firmware that enables an
attacker able to sniff DHCP traffic to view the HTTP requests made
previously by the user navigator . That allows to view HTTP identification
values and form values .
Every time a DHCP requests is made to the router,  is answered correctly ,
but written over a previous HTTP request . Seems that someone forgot to
initialize to a value the buffers before reusing them . If you run a
sniffer and make a ipconfig /renew that's what you get ( my Ip address is
obfuscated in the packet )
