F5 Device Default Support Password

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
F5 Device Default Support Password

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


This F5 Networks system still has the default
password set for the support user account. This
account normally provides read/write access to the
web configuration utility. A possible hacker could take
advantage of this to reconfigure your systems and
possibly gain shell access to the system with
super-user rights.

Solution: Remove the support account entirely or
change the password of this account to something
that is difficult to guess.

Network Security Threat Level: High
