Hello All
i have a Biometric finger print reader in my office and want to open the door via a shortcut on my desktop

The homepage is accessed Via IP and you can put in your login details and press login or open door which fires the realy for a few seconds allowing the visitor to open the door.

On the home page i have right clicked the button and it does not offer to be opened in a new window so its not a link

I have captured the data via wireshark and i can see the HTTP traffic and if i look inside the packet i can see my username and password in text form.

how do i take this and test the URL directly to tell the device to open the door as if it came from a mouse click rather so i can add it as a shortcut with the exact open URL

some wireshark data with the password etc changed is below

Full request URI: http://192.168.1.1/dyn
Line-based text data: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
login=&username=123456&password=123456&button=Open+Door

Any thoughts or am i missing something?
Cheers

Hi,

First of all it highly depends on the server side, whether you can bypass that page or not.

If the server accepts GET requests, then the following URL should work:

http://192.168.1.1/dyn?login=&username=123456&password=123456&button=Open+Door

Good luck!

Endre
