Impact:
Exploitability:
CWE CWE-22
CAPEC
  • Relative Path Traversal
    An attacker exploits a weakness in input validation on the target by supplying a specially constructed path utilizing dot and slash characters for the purpose of obtaining access to arbitrary files or resources. An attacker modifies a known path on the target in order to reach material that is not available through intended channels. These attacks normally involve adding additional path separators (/ or \) and/or dots (.), or encodings thereof, in various combinations in order to reach parent directories or entirely separate trees of the target's directory structure.
  • Directory Traversal
    An attacker with access to file system resources, either directly or via application logic, will use various file path specification or navigation mechanisms such as ".." in path strings and absolute paths to extend their range of access to inappropriate areas of the file system. The attacker attempts to either explore the file system for recon purposes or access directories and files that are intended to be restricted from their access. Exploring the file system can be achieved through constructing paths presented to directory listing programs, such as "ls" and 'dir', or through specially crafted programs that attempt to explore the file system. The attacker engaging in this type of activity is searching for information that can be used later in a more exploitive attack. Access to restricted directories or files can be achieved through modification of path references utilized by system applications.
  • File System Function Injection, Content Based
    An attack of this type exploits the host's trust in executing remote content including binary files. The files are poisoned with a malicious payload (targeting the file systems accessible by the target software) by the attacker and may be passed through standard channels such as via email, and standard web content like PDF and multimedia files. The attacker exploits known vulnerabilities or handling routines in the target processes. Vulnerabilities of this type have been found in a wide variety of commercial applications from Microsoft Office to Adobe Acrobat and Apple Safari web browser. When the attacker knows the standard handling routines and can identify vulnerabilities and entry points they can be exploited by otherwise seemingly normal content. Once the attack is executed, the attackers' program can access relative directories such as C:\Program Files or other standard system directories to launch further attacks. In a worst case scenario, these programs are combined with other propagation logic and work as a virus.
  • Using Slashes and URL Encoding Combined to Bypass Validation Logic
    This attack targets the encoding of the URL combined with the encoding of the slash characters. An attacker can take advantage of the multiple way of encoding an URL and abuse the interpretation of the URL. An URL may contain special character that need special syntax handling in order to be interpreted. Special characters are represented using a percentage character followed by two digits representing the octet code of the original character (%HEX-CODE). For instance US-ASCII space character would be represented with %20. This is often referred as escaped ending or percent-encoding. Since the server decodes the URL from the requests, it may restrict the access to some URL paths by validating and filtering out the URL requests it received. An attacker will try to craft an URL with a sequence of special characters which once interpreted by the server will be equivalent to a forbidden URL. It can be difficult to protect against this attack since the URL can contain other format of encoding such as UTF-8 encoding, Unicode-encoding, etc.
  • Manipulating Input to File System Calls
    An attacker manipulates inputs to the target software which the target software passes to file system calls in the OS. The goal is to gain access to, and perhaps modify, areas of the file system that the target software did not intend to be accessible.
  • Using Escaped Slashes in Alternate Encoding
    This attack targets the use of the backslash in alternate encoding. An attacker can provide a backslash as a leading character and causes a parser to believe that the next character is special. This is called an escape. By using that trick, the attacker tries to exploit alternate ways to encode the same character which leads to filter problems and opens avenues to attack.
  • Using Slashes in Alternate Encoding
    This attack targets the encoding of the Slash characters. An attacker would try to exploit common filtering problems related to the use of the slashes characters to gain access to resources on the target host. Directory-driven systems, such as file systems and databases, typically use the slash character to indicate traversal between directories or other container components. For murky historical reasons, PCs (and, as a result, Microsoft OSs) choose to use a backslash, whereas the UNIX world typically makes use of the forward slash. The schizophrenic result is that many MS-based systems are required to understand both forms of the slash. This gives the attacker many opportunities to discover and abuse a number of common filtering problems. The goal of this pattern is to discover server software that only applies filters to one version, but not the other.

    description Multiple security vulnerabilities has been identified and fixed in tomcat5 : When Tomcat's WebDAV servlet is configured for use with a context and has been enabled for write, some WebDAV requests that specify an entity with a SYSTEM tag can result in the contents of arbitary files being returned to the client (CVE-2007-5461). Apache Tomcat 5.5.11 through 5.5.25 and 6.0.0 through 6.0.15, when the native APR connector is used, does not properly handle an empty request to the SSL port, which allows remote attackers to trigger handling of a duplicate copy of one of the recent requests, as demonstrated by using netcat to send the empty request (CVE-2007-6286). Apache Tomcat 4.1.0 through 4.1.39, 5.5.0 through 5.5.27, 6.0.0 through 6.0.18, and possibly earlier versions normalizes the target pathname before filtering the query string when using the RequestDispatcher method, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions and conduct directory traversal attacks via .. (dot dot) sequences and the WEB-INF directory in a Request (CVE-2008-5515). Apache Tomcat 4.1.0 through 4.1.39, 5.5.0 through 5.5.27, and 6.0.0 through 6.0.18, when the Java AJP connector and mod_jk load balancing are used, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application outage) via a crafted request with invalid headers, related to temporary blocking of connectors that have encountered errors, as demonstrated by an error involving a malformed HTTP Host header (CVE-2009-0033). Apache Tomcat 4.1.0 through 4.1.39, 5.5.0 through 5.5.27, and 6.0.0 through 6.0.18, when FORM authentication is used, allows remote attackers to enumerate valid usernames via requests to /j_security_check with malformed URL encoding of passwords, related to improper error checking in the (1) MemoryRealm, (2) DataSourceRealm, and (3) JDBCRealm authentication realms, as demonstrated by a % (percent) value for the j_password parameter (CVE-2009-0580). The calendar application in the examples web application contains an XSS flaw due to invalid HTML which renders the XSS filtering protection ineffective (CVE-2009-0781). Apache Tomcat 4.1.0 through 4.1.39, 5.5.0 through 5.5.27, and 6.0.0 through 6.0.18 permits web applications to replace an XML parser used for other web applications, which allows local users to read or modify the (1) web.xml, (2) context.xml, or (3) tld files of arbitrary web applications via a crafted application that is loaded earlier than the target application (CVE-2009-0783). The updated packages have been patched to prevent this.

Third-party library update for ntp. The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used to synchronize a computer's time with a referenced time source. ESXi 3.5 and ESXi 4.0 have a ntp client that is affected by the following security issue. Note that the same security issue is present in the ESX Service Console as described in section d. of this advisory. A buffer overflow flaw was discovered in the ntpd daemon's NTPv4 authentication code. If ntpd was configured to use public key cryptography for NTP packet authentication, a remote attacker could use this flaw to send a specially crafted request packet that could crash ntpd or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the 'ntp' user. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-1252 to this issue. The NTP security issue identified by CVE-2009-0159 is not relevant for ESXi 3.5 and ESXi 4.0. d. Service Console update for ntp Service Console package ntp updated to version ntp-4.2.2pl-9el5_3.2 The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used to synchronize a computer's time with a referenced time source. The Service Console present in ESX is affected by the following security issues. A buffer overflow flaw was discovered in the ntpd daemon's NTPv4 authentication code. If ntpd was configured to use public key cryptography for NTP packet authentication, a remote attacker could use this flaw to send a specially crafted request packet that could crash ntpd or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the 'ntp' user. NTP authentication is not enabled by default on the Service Console. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-1252 to this issue. A buffer overflow flaw was found in the ntpq diagnostic command. A malicious, remote server could send a specially crafted reply to an ntpq request that could crash ntpq or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the ntpq command. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-0159 to this issue. e. Updated Service Console package kernel Updated Service Console package kernel addresses the security issues listed below.

Updated Service Console package python Service Console package Python update to version 2.4.3-24.el5. When the assert() system call was disabled, an input sanitization flaw was revealed in the Python string object implementation that led to a buffer overflow. The missing check for negative size values meant the Python memory allocator could allocate less memory than expected. This could result in arbitrary code execution with the Python interpreter's privileges. Multiple buffer and integer overflow flaws were found in the Python Unicode string processing and in the Python Unicode and string object implementations. An attacker could use these flaws to cause a denial of service. Multiple integer overflow flaws were found in the Python imageop module. If a Python application used the imageop module to process untrusted images, it could cause the application to disclose sensitive information, crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the Python interpreter's privileges. Multiple integer underflow and overflow flaws were found in the Python snprintf() wrapper implementation. An attacker could use these flaws to cause a denial of service (memory corruption). Multiple integer overflow flaws were found in various Python modules. An attacker could use these flaws to cause a denial of service. An integer signedness error, leading to a buffer overflow, was found in the Python zlib extension module. If a Python application requested the negative byte count be flushed for a decompression stream, it could cause the application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the Python interpreter's privileges. A flaw was discovered in the strxfrm() function of the Python locale module. Strings generated by this function were not properly NULL-terminated, which could possibly cause disclosure of data stored in the memory of a Python application using this function. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2007-2052 CVE-2007-4965 CVE-2008-1721 CVE-2008-1887 CVE-2008-2315 CVE-2008-3142 CVE-2008-3143 CVE-2008-3144 CVE-2008-4864 CVE-2008-5031 to these issues. g. Updated Service Console package bind Service Console package bind updated to version 9.3.6-4.P1.el5 The Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) is an implementation of the Domain Name System (DNS) protocols. BIND includes a DNS server (named); a resolver library (routines for applications to use when interfacing with DNS); and tools for verifying that the DNS server is operating correctly. A flaw was found in the way BIND handles dynamic update message packets containing the 'ANY' record type. A remote attacker could use this flaw to send a specially crafted dynamic update packet that could cause named to exit with an assertion failure. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-0696 to this issue. h. Updated Service Console package libxml2 Service Console package libxml2 updated to version 2.6.26-2.1.2.8. libxml is a library for parsing and manipulating XML files. A Document Type Definition (DTD) defines the legal syntax (and also which elements can be used) for certain types of files, such as XML files. A stack overflow flaw was found in the way libxml processes the root XML document element definition in a DTD. A remote attacker could provide a specially crafted XML file, which once opened by a local, unsuspecting user, would lead to denial of service. Multiple use-after-free flaws were found in the way libxml parses the Notation and Enumeration attribute types. A remote attacker could provide a specially crafted XML file, which once opened by a local, unsuspecting user, would lead to denial of service. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-2414 and CVE-2009-2416 to these issues. i. Updated Service Console package curl Service Console package curl updated to version 7.15.5-2.1.el5_3.5 A cURL is affected by the previously published 'null prefix attack', caused by incorrect handling of NULL characters in X.509 certificates. If an attacker is able to get a carefully-crafted certificate signed by a trusted Certificate Authority, the attacker could use the certificate during a man-in-the-middle attack and potentially confuse cURL into accepting it by mistake. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-2417 to this issue j. Updated Service Console package gnutls Service Console package gnutil updated to version 1.4.1-3.el5_3.5 A flaw was discovered in the way GnuTLS handles NULL characters in certain fields of X.509 certificates. If an attacker is able to get a carefully-crafted certificate signed by a Certificate Authority trusted by an application using GnuTLS, the attacker could use the certificate during a man-in-the-middle attack and potentially confuse the application into accepting it by mistake. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-2730 to this issue

This update has been rated as having low security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. During an internal security audit, it was discovered that Red Hat Network Satellite Server shipped with an XML-RPC script, manzier.pxt, which had a single hard-coded authentication key. A remote attacker who is able to connect to the Satellite Server XML-RPC service could use this flaw to obtain limited information about Satellite Server users, such as login names, associated email addresses, internal user IDs, and partial information about entitlements. (CVE-2008-2369) This release also corrects several security vulnerabilities in various components shipped as part of Red Hat Network Satellite Server 5.1. In a typical operating environment, these components are not exposed to users of Satellite Server in a vulnerable manner. These security updates will reduce risk in unique Satellite Server environments. A denial-of-service flaw was fixed in mod_perl. (CVE-2007-1349) Multiple cross-site scripting flaws were fixed in the image map feature in the JFreeChart package. (CVE-2007-6306) A flaw which could result in weak encryption was fixed in the perl-Crypt-CBC package. (CVE-2006-0898) Multiple flaws were fixed in the Apache Tomcat package. (CVE-2005-4838, CVE-2006-0254, CVE-2007-1355, CVE-2007-1358, CVE-2007-2449, CVE-2007-5461, CVE-2008-0128) Users of Red Hat Network Satellite Server 5.1 are advised to upgrade to 5.1.1, which resolves these issues.

    description Updated JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBEAP) packages that fix several security issues are now available. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBEAP) is a middleware platform for Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) applications. This release of JBEAP for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 contains the JBoss Application Server and JBoss Seam. This release serves as a replacement to JBEAP 4.2.0.GA. It fixes several security issues : The JFreeChart component was vulnerable to multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities. An attacker could misuse the image map feature to inject arbitrary web script, or HTML, via several attributes of the chart area. (CVE-2007-6306) A vulnerability caused by exposing static Java methods was located within the HSQLDB component. This could be utilized by an attacker to execute arbitrary static Java methods. (CVE-2007-4575) The setOrder method in the org.jboss.seam.framework.Query class did not correctly validate user-supplied parameters. This vulnerability allowed remote attackers to inject, and execute, arbitrary Enterprise JavaBeans Query Language (EJB QL) commands via the order parameter. (CVE-2007-6433) These updated packages include bug fixes and enhancements which are not listed here. For a full list, please refer to the JBEAP 4.2.0CP02 release notes: http://redhat.com/docs/manuals/jboss/jboss-eap-4.2.0.cp02/readme.html Warning: before applying this update, please backup the JBEAP 'server/[configuration]/deploy/' directory, and any other customized configuration files. All users of JBEAP on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.

    description A number of vulnerabilities were found in Tomcat : A directory traversal vulnerability, when using certain proxy modules, allows a remote attacker to read arbitrary files via a .. (dot dot) sequence with various slash, backslash, or url-encoded backslash characters (CVE-2007-0450; affects Mandriva Linux 2007.1 only). Multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in certain JSP files allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML (CVE-2007-2449). Multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in the Manager and Host Manager web applications allow remote authenticated users to inject arbitrary web script or HTML (CVE-2007-2450). Tomcat treated single quotes as delimiters in cookies, which could cause sensitive information such as session IDs to be leaked and allow remote attackers to conduct session hijacking attacks (CVE-2007-3382). Tomcat did not properly handle the ' character sequence in a cookie value, which could cause sensitive information such as session IDs to be leaked and allow remote attackers to conduct session hijacking attacks (CVE-2007-3385). A cross-site scripting vulnerability in the Host Manager servlet allowed remote attackers to inject arbitrary HTML and web script via crafted attacks (CVE-2007-3386). Finally, an absolute path traversal vulnerability, under certain configurations, allows remote authenticated users to read arbitrary files via a WebDAV write request that specifies an entity with a SYSTEM tag (CVE-2007-5461). The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

    description New JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBEAP) packages, comprising the 4.2.0.CP02 release, are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. JBEAP is a middleware platform for Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) applications. This release of JBEAP for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 contains the JBoss Application Server and JBoss Seam and serves as a replacement for JBEAP 4.2.0.GA_CP01. As well as fixing numerous bugs and adding enhancements, these updated packages addresses several security issues. The JFreeChart component was vulnerable to multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities. An attacker could misuse the image map feature to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via several attributes of the chart area. (CVE-2007-6306) A vulnerability caused by exposing static java methods was located within the HSQLDB component. This could be utilized by an attacker to execute arbitrary static java methods. (CVE-2007-4575) The setOrder method in the org.jboss.seam.framework.Query class did not properly validate user-supplied parameters. This vulnerability allowed remote attackers to inject and execute arbitrary EJBQL commands via the order parameter. (CVE-2007-6433) For details regarding the bug fixes and enhancements included with this update, please see the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 4.2.0.CP02 Release Notes, linked to in the References section below. All Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 users wanting to use the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform are advised to install these new packages.

  • NASL family Gentoo Local Security Checks
    NASL id GENTOO_GLSA-200804-10.NASL
    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200804-10 (Tomcat: Multiple vulnerabilities) The following vulnerabilities were reported: Delian Krustev discovered that the JULI logging component does not properly enforce access restrictions, allowing web application to add or overwrite files (CVE-2007-5342). When the native APR connector is used, Tomcat does not properly handle an empty request to the SSL port, which allows remote attackers to trigger handling of a duplicate copy of one of the recent requests (CVE-2007-6286). If the processing or parameters is interrupted, i.e. by an exception, then it is possible for the parameters to be processed as part of later request (CVE-2008-0002). An absolute path traversal vulnerability exists due to the way that WebDAV write requests are handled (CVE-2007-5461). Tomcat does not properly handle double quote (') characters or %5C (encoded backslash) sequences in a cookie value, which might cause sensitive information such as session IDs to be leaked to remote attackers and enable session hijacking attacks (CVE-2007-5333). Impact : These vulnerabilities can be exploited by: a malicious web application to add or overwrite files with the permissions of the user running Tomcat. a remote attacker to conduct session hijacking or disclose sensitive data. Workaround : There is no known workaround at this time.

    NASL id CENTOS_RHSA-2008-0042.NASL
    description Updated tomcat packages that fix security issues and bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. Tomcat is a servlet container for Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages technologies. A directory traversal vulnerability existed in the Apache Tomcat webdav servlet. In some configurations it allowed remote authenticated users to read files accessible to the local tomcat process. (CVE-2007-5461) The default security policy in the JULI logging component did not restrict access permissions to files. This could be misused by untrusted web applications to access and write arbitrary files in the context of the tomcat process. (CVE-2007-5342) Users of Tomcat should update to these errata packages, which contain backported patches and are not vulnerable to these issues.

    NASL id TOMCAT_6_0_16.NASL
    description According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Apache Tomcat listening on the remote host is prior to 6.0.16. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - The remote Apache Tomcat install may be vulnerable to an information disclosure attack via cookies. The previous fix for CVE-2007-3385 was incomplete and did not account for the use of quotes or '%5C' in cookie values. (CVE-2007-3385, CVE-2007-5333) - The default security policy in the JULI logging component did not restrict access permissions to files. This could be misused by untrusted web applications to access and write arbitrary files in the context of the Tomcat process. (CVE-2007-5342) - A directory traversal vulnerability existed in the Apache Tomcat webdav servlet. In some configurations it allowed remote, authenticated users to read files accessible to the local tomcat process. (CVE-2007-5461) - When the native APR connector is used, it does not properly handle an empty request to the SSL port, which allows remote attackers to trigger handling of a duplicate copy of one of the recent requests, as demonstrated by using netcat to send the empty request. (CVE-2007-6286) - If the processing or parameters is interrupted, i.e. by an exception, then it is possible for the parameters to be processed as part of later request. (CVE-2008-0002) Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
