Moxa MGate MB3180 before 1.8, MGate MB3280 before 2.7, MGate MB3480 before 2.6, MGate MB3170 before 2.5, and MGate MB3270 before 2.7 use weak encryption, which allows remote attackers to bypass authentication via a brute-force series of guesses for a parameter value.

Weakness

The software stores or transmits sensitive data using an encryption scheme that is theoretically sound, but is not strong enough for the level of protection required.
