The D-Link access point devices have an arbitrary file read vulnerability that allows remote attackers to read arbitrary files. There are various POST options available when sending a login request. After a failed login request, attackers may utilise the errorpage= tag to redirect to an arbitrary page, leaking arbitrary system files.
