CVSS Meta Temp Score
CVSS is a standardized scoring system to determine possibilities of attacks. The Temp Score considers temporal factors like disclosure, exploit and countermeasures. The unique Meta Score calculates the average score of different sources to provide a normalized scoring system.
Current Exploit Price (≈)
Our analysts are monitoring exploit markets and are in contact with vulnerability brokers. The range indicates the observed or calculated exploit price to be seen on exploit markets. A good indicator to understand the monetary effort required for and the popularity of an attack.
CTI Interest Score
Our Cyber Threat Intelligence team is monitoring different web sites, mailing lists, exploit markets and social media networks. The CTI Interest Score identifies the interest of attackers and the security community for this specific vulnerability in real-time. A high score indicates an elevated risk to be targeted for this vulnerability.

A vulnerability, which was classified as critical, was found in D-Link IP Cameras (Network Camera Software). This affects an unknown part of the file var/www/cgi-bin/rtpd.cgi. The manipulation with an unknown input leads to a insecure inherited permissions vulnerability. CWE is classifying the issue as CWE-277. A product defines a set of insecure permissions that are inherited by objects that are created by the program. This is going to have an impact on confidentiality, integrity, and availability.

The weakness was released 04/29/2013 by Francisco Falcon and Nahuel Riva with Core Exploit Writers Team as CORE-2013-0303 as confirmed advisory (Website). It is possible to read the advisory at coresecurity.com. The public release was coordinated with D-Link. This vulnerability is uniquely identified as CVE-2013-1599 since 02/04/2013. The exploitability is told to be easy. It is possible to initiate the attack remotely. No form of authentication is needed for exploitation. Technical details and a public exploit are known. The attack technique deployed by this issue is T1222 according to MITRE ATT&CK.

A public exploit has been developed by Francisco Falcon/Nahuel Riva and been published immediately after the advisory. The exploit is shared for download at coresecurity.com. It is declared as proof-of-concept. We expect the 0-day to have been worth approximately $5k-$25k.

Applying a patch is able to eliminate this problem. A possible mitigation has been published even before and not after the disclosure of the vulnerability.

The vulnerability is also documented in the vulnerability database at Exploit-DB (25138).
