Exploit: Device vulnerability in modems that reveals Wi-Fi credentials.
Orange: Telecommunications operator that offers a router product.
Risk to Small Business: 2.333= Severe: Although such an attack can be contained by finding all the hardware products with vulnerabilities, the breach can negatively impact customers and result in the erosion of brand loyalty.
Individual Risk: 2.571= Moderate: Such a compromise can be dangerous because it enables hackers to execute on-location proximity attacks, which means they can travel to a company headquarters or home to access a network and then hack into connected devices nearby. Also, Wi-FI passwords might be reused elsewhere, such as the backend administration panel, allowing hackers to control the system infrastructure and create online botnets.
Customers Impacted: 19,500 customers using Orange Livebox modems.
How it Could Affect Your Customers’ Business: Security vulnerabilities in hardware can be financially catastrophic, as they usually result in expensive patches, product recalls, reinvention, and customer churn.
