EdiMax AP Hidden Password Check

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Edimax Hidden Password Check

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote EdiMax Access Point ships with a default account
('guest'/'1234') which has backup rights on the remote configuration
file.

If the guest user does a backup of the remote config file, he will be able
to obtain the password for the administrator account, since it's saved in
cleartext in the config.

Solution: Contact vendor for a fix. As a temporary workaround,
disable the webserver or filter the traffic to this access point
webserver via an upstream firewall.
