Exploitability:
CWE CWE-94
CAPEC
  • Leverage Executable Code in Non-Executable Files
    An attack of this type exploits a system's trust in configuration and resource files, when the executable loads the resource (such as an image file or configuration file) the attacker has modified the file to either execute malicious code directly or manipulate the target process (e.g. application server) to execute based on the malicious configuration parameters. Since systems are increasingly interrelated mashing up resources from local and remote sources the possibility of this attack occurring is high. The attack can be directed at a client system, such as causing buffer overrun through loading seemingly benign image files, as in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-028 where specially crafted JPEG files could cause a buffer overrun once loaded into the browser. Another example targets clients reading pdf files. In this case the attacker simply appends javascript to the end of a legitimate url for a pdf (http://www.gnucitizen.org/blog/danger-danger-danger/) http://path/to/pdf/file.pdf#whatever_name_you_want=javascript:your_code_here The client assumes that they are reading a pdf, but the attacker has modified the resource and loaded executable javascript into the client's browser process. The attack can also target server processes. The attacker edits the resource or configuration file, for example a web.xml file used to configure security permissions for a J2EE app server, adding role name "public" grants all users with the public role the ability to use the administration functionality. The server trusts its configuration file to be correct, but when they are manipulated, the attacker gains full control.
  • Manipulating User-Controlled Variables
    This attack targets user controlled variables (DEBUG=1, PHP Globals, and So Forth). An attacker can override environment variables leveraging user-supplied, untrusted query variables directly used on the application server without any data sanitization. In extreme cases, the attacker can change variables controlling the business logic of the application. For instance, in languages like PHP, a number of poorly set default configurations may allow the user to override variables.

[Updated 12 March 2007] Packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 and 3 have been updated to correct an issue which prevented Evolution and other applications linked against the NSS library from functioning. SeaMonkey is an open source Web browser, advanced email and newsgroup client, IRC chat client, and HTML editor. Several flaws were found in the way SeaMonkey processed certain malformed JavaScript code. A malicious web page could execute JavaScript code in such a way that may result in SeaMonkey crashing or executing arbitrary code as the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2007-0775, CVE-2007-0777) Several cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws were found in the way SeaMonkey processed certain malformed web pages. A malicious web page could display misleading information which may result in a user unknowingly divulging sensitive information such as a password. (CVE-2006-6077, CVE-2007-0995, CVE-2007-0996) A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey cached web pages on the local disk. A malicious web page may be able to inject arbitrary HTML into a browsing session if the user reloads a targeted site. (CVE-2007-0778) A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey displayed certain web content. A malicious web page could generate content which could overlay user interface elements such as the hostname and security indicators, tricking a user into thinking they are visiting a different site. (CVE-2007-0779) Two flaws were found in the way SeaMonkey displayed blocked popup windows. If a user can be convinced to open a blocked popup, it is possible to read arbitrary local files, or conduct an XSS attack against the user. (CVE-2007-0780, CVE-2007-0800) Two buffer overflow flaws were found in the Network Security Services (NSS) code for processing the SSLv2 protocol. Connecting to a malicious secure web server could cause the execution of arbitrary code as the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2007-0008, CVE-2007-0009) A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handled the 'location.hostname' value during certain browser domain checks. This flaw could allow a malicious web site to set domain cookies for an arbitrary site, or possibly perform an XSS attack. (CVE-2007-0981) Users of SeaMonkey are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages, which contain SeaMonkey version 1.0.8 that corrects these issues.

Several flaws were found in the way Thunderbird processed certain malformed JavaScript code. A malicious HTML mail message could execute JavaScript code in such a way that may result in Thunderbird crashing or executing arbitrary code as the user running Thunderbird. JavaScript support is disabled by default in Thunderbird; these issues are not exploitable unless the user has enabled JavaScript. (CVE-2007-0775, CVE-2007-0777, CVE-2007-1092) A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird processed text/enhanced and text/richtext formatted mail message. A specially crafted mail message could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2007-1282) Several cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws were found in the way Thunderbird processed certain malformed HTML mail messages. A malicious HTML mail message could display misleading information which may result in a user unknowingly divulging sensitive information such as a password. (CVE-2006-6077, CVE-2007-0995, CVE-2007-0996) A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird cached web content on the local disk. A malicious HTML mail message may be able to inject arbitrary HTML into a browsing session if the user reloads a targeted site. (CVE-2007-0778) A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird displayed certain web content. A malicious HTML mail message could generate content which could overlay user interface elements such as the hostname and security indicators, tricking a user into thinking they are visiting a different site. (CVE-2007-0779) Two flaws were found in the way Thunderbird displayed blocked popup windows. If a user can be convinced to open a blocked popup, it is possible to read arbitrary local files, or conduct an XSS attack against the user. (CVE-2007-0780, CVE-2007-0800) Two buffer overflow flaws were found in the Network Security Services (NSS) code for processing the SSLv2 protocol. Connecting to a malicious secure web server could cause the execution of arbitrary code as the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2007-0008, CVE-2007-0009) A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird handled the 'location.hostname' value during certain browser domain checks. This flaw could allow a malicious HTML mail message to set domain cookies for an arbitrary site, or possibly perform an XSS attack. (CVE-2007-0981) Users of Thunderbird are advised to apply this update, which contains Thunderbird version 1.5.0.10 that corrects these issues.

A malicious web page may have been able to inject arbitrary HTML into a browsing session if the user reloaded a targeted site. (CVE-2007-0778) Certain web content could overlay Firefox user interface elements such as the hostname and security indicators. A malicious web page could trick a user into thinking they were visiting a different site. (CVE-2007-0779) Two flaws were found in Firefox's displaying of blocked popup windows. If a user could be convinced to open a blocked popup, it was possible to read arbitrary local files, or conduct a cross-site scripting attack against the user.
