http://seclists.org/fulldisclosure/2013/May/166 vulnerability in LG's "HiddenMenu" allows you to execute shell commands as the system, with a large array of additional permissions (Groups). This vulnerability opens up the device to further attacks. Due to the large number of models sharing similar firmware, I have no idea how many devices are affected. Details: Dial: 3845#*XXX# ( XXX to be replaced with model number, in this case 3845#*973#) HiddenMenu will open, select WLAN Test, then select Wi-Fi Ping Test/User Command, then select User Command. Replace the tcpdump command with the command you wish to run as system user Then press cancel (not ok). The application will execute the command as system user.
