CWE CWE-119
CAPEC
  • Buffer Overflow via Environment Variables
    This attack pattern involves causing a buffer overflow through manipulation of environment variables. Once the attacker finds that they can modify an environment variable, they may try to overflow associated buffers. This attack leverages implicit trust often placed in environment variables.
  • Overflow Buffers
    Buffer Overflow attacks target improper or missing bounds checking on buffer operations, typically triggered by input injected by an attacker. As a consequence, an attacker is able to write past the boundaries of allocated buffer regions in memory, causing a program crash or potentially redirection of execution as per the attackers' choice.
  • Client-side Injection-induced Buffer Overflow
    This type of attack exploits a buffer overflow vulnerability in targeted client software through injection of malicious content from a custom-built hostile service.
  • Filter Failure through Buffer Overflow
    In this attack, the idea is to cause an active filter to fail by causing an oversized transaction. An attacker may try to feed overly long input strings to the program in an attempt to overwhelm the filter (by causing a buffer overflow) and hoping that the filter does not fail securely (i.e. the user input is let into the system unfiltered).
  • MIME Conversion
    An attacker exploits a weakness in the MIME conversion routine to cause a buffer overflow and gain control over the mail server machine. The MIME system is designed to allow various different information formats to be interpreted and sent via e-mail. Attack points exist when data are converted to MIME compatible format and back.
  • Overflow Binary Resource File
    An attack of this type exploits a buffer overflow vulnerability in the handling of binary resources. Binary resources may include music files like MP3, image files like JPEG files, and any other binary file. These attacks may pass unnoticed to the client machine through normal usage of files, such as a browser loading a seemingly innocent JPEG file. This can allow the attacker access to the execution stack and execute arbitrary code in the target process. This attack pattern is a variant of standard buffer overflow attacks using an unexpected vector (binary files) to wrap its attack and open up a new attack vector. The attacker is required to either directly serve the binary content to the victim, or place it in a locale like a MP3 sharing application, for the victim to download. The attacker then is notified upon the download or otherwise locates the vulnerability opened up by the buffer overflow.
  • Buffer Overflow via Symbolic Links
    This type of attack leverages the use of symbolic links to cause buffer overflows. An attacker can try to create or manipulate a symbolic link file such that its contents result in out of bounds data. When the target software processes the symbolic link file, it could potentially overflow internal buffers with insufficient bounds checking.
  • Overflow Variables and Tags
    This type of attack leverages the use of tags or variables from a formatted configuration data to cause buffer overflow. The attacker crafts a malicious HTML page or configuration file that includes oversized strings, thus causing an overflow.
  • Buffer Overflow via Parameter Expansion
    In this attack, the target software is given input that the attacker knows will be modified and expanded in size during processing. This attack relies on the target software failing to anticipate that the expanded data may exceed some internal limit, thereby creating a buffer overflow.
  • Buffer Overflow in an API Call
    This attack targets libraries or shared code modules which are vulnerable to buffer overflow attacks. An attacker who has access to an API may try to embed malicious code in the API function call and exploit a buffer overflow vulnerability in the function's implementation. All clients that make use of the code library thus become vulnerable by association. This has a very broad effect on security across a system, usually affecting more than one software process.
  • Buffer Overflow in Local Command-Line Utilities
    This attack targets command-line utilities available in a number of shells. An attacker can leverage a vulnerability found in a command-line utility to escalate privilege to root.

    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200703-18 (Mozilla Thunderbird: Multiple vulnerabilities) Georgi Guninski reported a possible integer overflow in the code handling text/enhanced or text/richtext MIME emails. Additionally, various researchers reported errors in the JavaScript engine potentially leading to memory corruption. Additionally, the binary version of Mozilla Thunderbird includes a vulnerable NSS library which contains two possible buffer overflows involving the SSLv2 protocol. Impact : An attacker could entice a user to read a specially crafted email that could trigger one of the vulnerabilities, some of them being related to Mozilla Thunderbird's handling of JavaScript, possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary code. Workaround : There is no known workaround at this time for all of these issues, but some of them can be avoided by disabling JavaScript. Note that the execution of JavaScript is disabled by default and enabling it is strongly discouraged.

    title SeaMonkey < 1.0.8 Multiple Vulnerabilities
  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_SEAMONKEY-2811.NASL
    description This security update brings Mozilla SeaMonkey to version 1.0.8. Please also see http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/known-vulnerabilities.html for more details. It includes fixes to the following security problems : - MFSA 2007-01: As part of the Firefox 2.0.0.2 and 1.5.0.10 update releases several bugs were fixed to improve the stability of the browser. Some of these were crashes that showed evidence of memory corruption and we presume that with enough effort at least some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code. These fixes affected the layout engine (CVE-2007-0775), SVG renderer (CVE-2007-0776) and JavaScript engine (CVE-2007-0777). - MFSA 2007-02: Various enhancements were done to make XSS exploits against websites less effective. These included fixes for invalid trailing characters (CVE-2007-0995), child frame character set inheritance (CVE-2007-0996), password form injection (CVE-2006-6077), and the Adobe Reader universal XSS problem. - MFSA 2007-03/CVE-2007-0778: AAd reported a potential disk cache collision that could be exploited by remote attackers to steal confidential data or execute code. - MFSA 2007-04/CVE-2007-0779: David Eckel reported that browser UI elements--such as the host name and security indicators--could be spoofed by using a large, mostly transparent, custom cursor and adjusting the CSS3 hotspot property so that the visible part of the cursor floated outside the browser content area. - MFSA 2007-05: Manually opening blocked popups could be exploited by remote attackers to allow XSS attacks (CVE-2007-0780) or to execute code in local files (CVE-2007-0800). - MFSA 2007-06: Two buffer overflows were found in the NSS handling of Mozilla. CVE-2007-0008: SSL clients such as Firefox and Thunderbird can suffer a buffer overflow if a malicious server presents a certificate with a public key that is too small to encrypt the entire 'Master Secret'. Exploiting this overflow appears to be unreliable but possible if the SSLv2 protocol is enabled. CVE-2007-0009: Servers that use NSS for the SSLv2 protocol can be exploited by a client that presents a 'Client Master Key' with invalid length values in any of several fields that are used without adequate error checking. This can lead to a buffer overflow that presumably could be exploitable. - MFSA 2007-06/CVE-2007-0981: Michal Zalewski demonstrated that setting location.hostname to a value with embedded null characters can confuse the browsers domain checks.

  • NASL family Gentoo Local Security Checks
    NASL id GENTOO_GLSA-200703-04.NASL
    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200703-04 (Mozilla Firefox: Multiple vulnerabilities) Tom Ferris reported a heap-based buffer overflow involving wide SVG stroke widths that affects Mozilla Firefox 2 only. Various researchers reported some errors in the JavaScript engine potentially leading to memory corruption. Mozilla Firefox also contains minor vulnerabilities involving cache collision and unsafe pop-up restrictions, filtering or CSS rendering under certain conditions. Impact : An attacker could entice a user to view a specially crafted web page that will trigger one of the vulnerabilities, possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary code. It is also possible for an attacker to spoof the address bar, steal information through cache collision, bypass the local files protection mechanism with pop-ups, or perform cross-site scripting attacks, leading to the exposure of sensitive information, like user credentials. Workaround : There is no known workaround at this time for all of these issues, but most of them can be avoided by disabling JavaScript.

Various researchers reported some errors in the JavaScript engine potentially leading to memory corruption.
