In NETGEAR Nighthawk X10-R900 prior to 1.0.4.26, an attacker may bypass all authentication checks on the device’s NETGEAR Genie SOAP API (/soap/server_sa) by supplying a malicious X-Forwarded-For header of the device’s LAN IP address (192.168.1.1) in every request. As a result, an attacker may modify almost all of the device’s settings and view various configuration settings.

Weakness

The software does not sufficiently verify the origin or authenticity of data, in a way that causes it to accept invalid data.
