Linksys E1200 (Missing authorization on parental control)

Fixed date as per Linksys contact: 7/4/16

Linksys E1200 hardware version 2.2 and firmware version 2.0.07 (build 2) suffer from missing authorization control on parental control page. This allows an attacker to change the parental controls set up by parents  to keep kids safe from visiting adult sites and probably compromise a kid’s device.

Linksys E1200 (Unauth Command Injection)

Fixed date as per Linksys contact: 7/4/16

Linksys E12500 hardware version 2.2 and firmware version 2.0.07 (build 2) suffer from missing command injection issue in parental control parameters. If the remote web management is enabled, then this allows an attacker to control the device remotely based on the combination attack mentioned below.

Combining the attack of no authorization control, it allows an attacker to actually execute unauthenticated command injection attack and thus control the entire device.
