CVE-2019–16920 is a RCE vulnerability in D-Link products that was discovered and reported by Fortinet’s FortiGuard Labs

In their report, the device models affected by the vulnerability are DIR-655C, DIR-866L, DIR-652, and DHP-1565. In fact, through our KnownSec 404 team’s research, we found that the device model affected by this vulnerability is far more than these. Other device models affected by the vulnerability are:

• DIR-855L
• DAP-1533
• DIR-862L
• DIR-615
• DIR-835
• DIR-825

Obviously, these device models are determined to be based on ZoomEye’s search results.First we determined the device banner fingerprints (ZoomEye dork)affected by CVE-2019–16920.

dork: “lighttpd” +”login_pic.asp”

Then we just call the ZoomEye api to determine the model string in the vulnerable device. It’s very easy to do this with Pocsuite
