Cisco RV340, RV340W, RV345, and RV345P Dual WAN Gigabit VPN Routers Local Privilege Escalation Vulnerability

A vulnerability in the internal message processing of Cisco RV340, RV340W, RV345, and RV345P Dual WAN Gigabit VPN Routers could allow an authenticated, local attacker to run arbitrary commands with root privileges on the underlying operating system (OS).

This vulnerability exists because an internal messaging service does not properly sanitize input. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by first authenticating to the device and then sending a crafted request to the internal service. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to run arbitrary commands with root privileges on the underlying OS. To exploit this vulnerability, the attacker must have valid Administrator credentials for the device.

Cisco has released software updates that address this vulnerability. There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.
