I found a vulnerability in this cablemodem which a malicious user inside *LAN 
can get the control of the cablemodem easily. 
This cablemodem model is given by the spanish ISP "AUNA".
Product: Thomson TCW690 cablemodem 
Affected Version: ST42.03.0a (not tested in minor versions)
Immune Version: ??? 
Security-Risk: high 
Exploit: yes 
Vendor-URL: http://www.thomson.net/ 
Vendor-Status: informed but no response 
The http server inside this cablemodem doesn't properly validate the supplied 
password when an user want to do some change in the configuration and sends a 
POST request. In the exploit I show how to change the admin password but you 
can also open ports, deny a user access, restore factory defaults, (all)... 
with a little changes. 
No response from vendor. There isn't fix available.
