Not sure if this is a remote vulnerability or not, but probably a good time to update your software

atleast this isnt exploitable by an outwards facing service, but still a fair bit concerning.

sidefx: Does 2 degrees support versions > 6.30 though?


Affected Versions: versions prior to 6.30 (all models) [0]


Fixed Versions: >= 6.30 (all models) [0]

6.30 is now support on 2degrees so updating to thats is OK. 6.50 is out but not for international as yet as most likely won't be supported for a while.

Hi all,

We are aware of this, in fact we have been working alongside the team at AVM to help rectify this problem throughout last year.

As the report mentions, firmware versions 06.30 and higher prevents this exploit from being created. The majority of devices on our network have upgraded to this version automatically through the manufacturer. There are no compatibility issues between these firmware versions and our network. We recommend upgrading firmware if you are not already on the latest version for your device, and we are investigating further measures we can take in the short term to ensure remaining outdated devices are on the latest firmware.

Feel free to let us know via PM if you have any further specific concerns.

OK thanks, updated. I have been waiting for the OK by 2degrees on this.
