CRN: Western Digital takes six months to patch easily exploitable NAS backdoor

CRN: Western Digital takes six months to patch easily exploitable NAS backdoor. “Western Digital has resolved a number of bugs that left its NAS drives vulnerable – six months after the vendor was notified about the issue. The vulnerabilities were found by security researcher James Bercegay, who discovered that the firmware for Western Digital’s My Cloud series of NAS drives contained a hardcoded backdoor administration account, which could not be changed and allowed for pre-authorised remote root code execution.”
