The Homeplug device, from Tenda, suffers from web server bugs as well as a DoS flaw.

A popular Wi-Fi extender for the home has multiple unpatched vulnerabilities, including the use of a weak, default password, according to researchers. Also, two of the bugs could allow complete remote control of the device.

The flaws have been found in Tenda PA6 Wi-Fi Powerline extender, version 1.0.1.21, which extends the wireless network throughout the house using HomePlug AV2 technology.
