Independent security researcher Joe Vennix has found several vulnerabilities in Motorola's DOCSIS/EuroDOCSIS 3.0-capable SURFboard SBG 6580 cable broadband modem that, if exploited together, could allow an attacker to perform malicious network reconfigurations.

The vulnerabilities include a false cross-site request (CVE-2015-0965) that lets an arbitrary site log in without the user's knowledge; a hard-coded backdoor (CVE-2015-0966), that could allow hackers to log in with the password yZgO8Bvj; and a cross-site scripting vulnerability in the firewall configuration page (CVE-2015-0964), letting attackers inject Javascript.

Among the affected firmware versions are: SBG6580––06–077-NOSH, and SBG6580- Affected users can protect their networks by configuring a custom local firewall that will prevent accidental (or malicious) connectivity.
