KL-001-2020-006 : Barco wePresent Authentication Bypass

Title: Barco wePresent Authentication Bypass
Advisory ID: KL-001-2020-006
Publication Date: 2020.11.20
Publication URL:

1. Vulnerability Details

     Affected Vendor: Barco
     Affected Product: wePresent WiPG-1600W
     Affected Version:
     Platform: Embedded Linux
     CWE Classification: CWE-288: Authentication Bypass Using an Alternate Path or Channel
     CVE ID: CVE-2020-28333

2. Vulnerability Description

     The Barco wePresent web interface does not use session cookies
     for tracking authenticated sessions. Instead, the web interface
     uses a "SEID" token that is appended to the end of URLs in GET
     requests. Thus the "SEID" would be exposed in web proxy logs
     and browser history. An attacker that is able to capture the
     "SEID" and originate requests from the same IP address (via
     a NAT device or web proxy) would be able to access the user
     interface of the device without having to know the credentials.

3. Technical Description

     In order to make configuration changes to the Barco wePresent
     WiPG-1600W, a "random" value sent to the web interface client
     from the device is required to be provided -- the "SEID". It
     seems to be acting like a Session ID in a cookie. However,
     the "SEID" is passed as a parameter in URLs and in the body
     of POSTs. Since it is passed as a parameter in the URL, it
     can be logged by web proxies or browser history. An example is:

     Where "ertqVvnKV4TjU9Vt" is the SEID. No session cookie exists,
     just this value passed on the URL as a parameter, and in the
     body of POSTs to make configuration changes. This SEID is all
     that is required to access pages behind authentication or to
     make configuration changes via POSTs. There is no Authorization
     header passed in the HTTP requests.

4. Mitigation and Remediation Recommendation

     The vendor has released an updated firmware ( which
     remediates the described vulnerability. Firmware and release
     notes are available at:
