Vulnerability Assessment Details

Nortel/Bay Networks/Xylogics Annex default password

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Logs into the remote Nortel terminal server

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote terminal server has the default password set.
This means that anyone who has (downloaded) a user manual can
telnet to it and gain administrative access.

If modems are attached to this terminal server, it may permit
unauthenticated remote access to the network.

Solution: Telnet to this terminal server change to the root
user with 'su' and set the password with the 'passwd' command.
Then, go to the admin mode using the 'admin' command. Cli
security can then be enabled by setting the vcli_security to
'Y' with the command 'set annex vcli_security Y'. This will
require ERPCD or RADIUS authentication for access to the
terminal server. Changes can then be applied through the
'reset annex all' command.
