Impact:
Exploitability:
CWE CWE-264
CAPEC
  • Accessing, Modifying or Executing Executable Files
    An attack of this type exploits a system's configuration that allows an attacker to either directly access an executable file, for example through shell access; or in a possible worst case allows an attacker to upload a file and then execute it. Web servers, ftp servers, and message oriented middleware systems which have many integration points are particularly vulnerable, because both the programmers and the administrators must be in synch regarding the interfaces and the correct privileges for each interface.
  • 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.
  • Blue Boxing
    This type of attack against older telephone switches and trunks has been around for decades. A tone is sent by an adversary to impersonate a supervisor signal which has the effect of rerouting or usurping command of the line. While the US infrastructure proper may not contain widespread vulnerabilities to this type of attack, many companies are connected globally through call centers and business process outsourcing. These international systems may be operated in countries which have not upgraded Telco infrastructure and so are vulnerable to Blue boxing. Blue boxing is a result of failure on the part of the system to enforce strong authorization for administrative functions. While the infrastructure is different than standard current applications like web applications, there are historical lessons to be learned to upgrade the access control for administrative functions.
  • Restful Privilege Elevation
    Rest uses standard HTTP (Get, Put, Delete) style permissions methods, but these are not necessarily correlated generally with back end programs. Strict interpretation of HTTP get methods means that these HTTP Get services should not be used to delete information on the server, but there is no access control mechanism to back up this logic. This means that unless the services are properly ACL'd and the application's service implementation are following these guidelines then an HTTP request can easily execute a delete or update on the server side. The attacker identifies a HTTP Get URL such as http://victimsite/updateOrder, which calls out to a program to update orders on a database or other resource. The URL is not idempotent so the request can be submitted multiple times by the attacker, additionally, the attacker may be able to exploit the URL published as a Get method that actually performs updates (instead of merely retrieving data). This may result in malicious or inadvertent altering of data on the server.
  • Target Programs with Elevated Privileges
    This attack targets programs running with elevated privileges. The attacker would try to leverage a bug in the running program and get arbitrary code to execute with elevated privileges. For instance an attacker would look for programs that write to the system directories or registry keys (such as HKLM, which stores a number of critical Windows environment variables). These programs are typically running with elevated privileges and have usually not been designed with security in mind. Such programs are excellent exploit targets because they yield lots of power when they break. The malicious user try to execute its code at the same level as a privileged system call.
  • 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.

    description a. Service Console update for DHCP and third-party library update for DHCP client. DHCP is an Internet-standard protocol by which a computer can be connected to a local network, ask to be given configuration information, and receive from a server enough information to configure itself as a member of that network. A stack-based buffer overflow in the script_write_params method in ISC DHCP dhclient allows remote DHCP servers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted subnet-mask option. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-0692 to this issue. An insecure temporary file use flaw was discovered in the DHCP daemon's init script ('/etc/init.d/dhcpd'). A local attacker could use this flaw to overwrite an arbitrary file with the output of the 'dhcpd -t' command via a symbolic link attack, if a system administrator executed the DHCP init script with the 'configtest', 'restart', or 'reload' option. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-1893 to this issue. b.

(244986) - There are multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities involving the JRE's image processing code, its handling of GIF images, and its font processing. (244987) - It may be possible for an attacker to bypass security checks due to the manner in which it handles the 'non-shortest form' of UTF-8 byte sequences. - There are multiple security vulnerabilities in Java Web Start and Java Plug-in that may allow for privilege escalation. (244988) - The JRE Java Update mechanism does not check the digital signature of the JRE that it downloads. (244989) - A buffer overflow may allow an untrusted Java application that is launched through the command line to elevate its privileges. (244990) - A vulnerability related to deserializing calendar objects may allow an untrusted applet or application to elevate its privileges. (244991) - A buffer overflow affects the 'unpack200' JAR unpacking utility and may allow an untrusted applet or application to elevate its privileges with unpacking applets and Java Web Start applications. (244992) - The UTF-8 decoder accepts encodings longer than the 'shortest' form. Although not a vulnerability per se, it may be leveraged to exploit software that relies on the JRE UTF-8 decoder to reject the 'non-shortest form' sequence. (245246) - An untrusted applet or application may be able to list the contents of the home directory of the user running the applet or application. (246266) - A denial of service vulnerability may be triggered when the JRE handles certain RSA public keys.

    title openSUSE 10 Security Update : java-1_6_0-sun (java-1_6_0-sun-5876)
  • NASL family Windows
    NASL id SUN_JAVA_JRE_244986.NASL
    description The version of Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE) installed on the remote host is earlier than 6 Update 11 / 5.0 Update 17 / 1.4.2_19 / 1.3.1_24. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues : - The JRE creates temporary files with insufficiently random names. (244986) - There are multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities involving the JRE's image processing code, its handling of GIF images, and its font processing. (244987) - It may be possible for an attacker to bypass security checks due to the manner in which it handles the 'non-shortest form' of UTF-8 byte sequences. - There are multiple security vulnerabilities in Java Web Start and Java Plug-in that may allow for privilege escalation. (244988) - The JRE Java Update mechanism does not check the digital signature of the JRE that it downloads. (244989) - A buffer overflow may allow an untrusted Java application that is launched through the commandline to escalate its privileges. (244990) - A vulnerability related to deserializing calendar objects may allow an untrusted applet or application to escalate its privileges. (244991) - A buffer overflow affects the 'unpack200' JAR unpacking utility and may allow an untrusted applet or application to escalate its privileges with unpacking applets and Java Web Start applications. (244992) - The UTF-8 decoder accepts encodings longer than the 'shortest' form. Although not a vulnerability per se, it may be leveraged to exploit software that relies on the JRE UTF-8 decoder to reject the 'non-shortest form' sequence. (245246) - An untrusted applet or application may be able to list the contents of the home directory of the user running the applet or application. (246266) - A denial of service vulnerability may be triggered when the JRE handles certain RSA public keys. (246286) - A vulnerability may be triggered while authenticating users through Kerberos and lead to a system-wide denial of service due to excessive consumption of operating system resources. (246346) - Security vulnerabilities in the JAX-WS and JAXB packages where internal classes can be accessed may allow an untrusted applet or application to escalate privileges. (246366) - An untrusted applet or application when parsing zip files may be able to read arbitrary memory locations in the process that the applet or application is running. (246386) - The JRE allows code loaded from the local filesystem to access localhost. (246387)

    description Updated java-1.6.0-sun packages that correct several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Extras and 5 Supplementary. This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. The Java Runtime Environment (JRE) contains the software and tools that users need to run applets and applications written using the Java programming language. A vulnerability was found in in Java Web Start. If a user visits a malicious website, an attacker could misuse this flaw to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2008-2086) Additionally, these packages fix several other critical vulnerabilities. These are summarized in the 'Advance notification of Security Updates for Java SE' from Sun Microsystems. Users of java-1.6.0-sun should upgrade to these updated packages, which correct these issues.
