  • 1. Cisco Router Hacking Group 8 Vernon Guishard Kelvin Aguebor ECE 4112
  • 2. Introduction
    • Cisco Systems, Inc. sells networking and communications technology and services.
    • Cisco is known for creating the first commercially successful multi-protocol router.
    • March 2000, Cisco had the market capitalization of $500 billion.
    • Currently, it has a market cap of $175 billion, controls 58% of the market sale of routers.
    • The Cisco routers have been more likely to have attacks.
    • Large market share can lead to attacks being devastating for the internet.
  • 3. Identifying Routers and Vulnerabilities
    • Nmap is used to identify the router.
      • OS fingerprinting
    • Telnet is another solution to track down routers.
      • Trademark Cisco Banner “User Access Verification”
    • SING is used to identify the router.
      • It uses ICMP packets to find the router
    • Nessus can be used to find vulnerabilities.
  • 4. Cisco Vulnerabilities
    • Console Password Recovery
      • All Cisco routers and switches affected
      • Not regarded as a vulnerability
      • A way for System Admin to recover lost passwords
      • May be used by hackers who have physical access to machines
    • HTTP Configuration Arbitrary Administrative Access Vulnerability
      • Cisco IOS release 11.3 or higher, are vulnerable.
      • Attacker can gain access to a router without authentication
      • Attacker can completely control, change, and configure the device
  • 5. Cisco Vulnerabilities
    • Router Denial of Service (DOS) Vulnerability
      • It affects all Cisco routers and switches from releases 11.1 through 12.1
      • Causes the routers and switches to stop forwarding packets on specific interface
      • IPv4 packets with protocol type of 53, 55, 77 or 103 causes input queue to be flagged as full
    • Telnet Buffer Overflow Vulnerability
      • Cisco Broadband Operating System (CBOS), an operating system for the Cisco 600 family of routers are vulnerable
      • Extremely long telnet passwords cause the router to crash then reboot
      • Attacker can repeat until fixed, causing a DOS
  • 6. Solutions to Vulnerabilities
    • Vulnerabilities know by Cisco and Patches Released
      • Most lingering vulnerabilities due to poor network administration
      • Upgrade Cisco IOS
      • Use access-list if not able to upgrade
      • TACAS or Radius effective in preventing HTTP vulnerability
  • 7. Lab Procedures
    • Section 1: Console Password Exploit
      • Using hyper terminal to access routers
      • Obtaining enable password and enable secret of the router
    • Section 2: Identifying Cisco Routers
      • Using NMAP and telnet to identify routers
    • Section 3: Network Exploits
      • Using the Cisco Global Exploit tool
      • Protecting against the Cisco Global Exploit tool
