Machine is vulnerable to attacks after CPUSE clean install and before completing the First Time Wizard
Symptoms
  • Machine becomes vulnerable to attacks after performing clean install with CPUSE and before completing the First Time Wizard.

  • Interface configuration was set before the clean installation.

  • The administrator password was not set and/or First Time Wizard was not completed after the CPUSE clean install.

Cause

The administrator password is reset during the CPUSE clean installation process.

On versions R80.10 Take 479, R80.20, and R80.20.M2, all interfaces configuration is saved. This leaves all publicly available interfaces open for connection via the default password.
On all other versions, the management interface configuration is saved. In case this interface is publicly available, it is open for connection via the default password.


Solution

To resolve the problem, reset the admin password as soon as the clean installation process completes.

To do so, run the "set user admin password" command in Clish and change the password as prompted.
