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 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.

    description This update brings the IBM Java 6 JDK and JRE to Service Release 4. It fixes lots of bugs and various security issues : - A vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment may allow an untrusted Java Web Start application to determine the location of the Java Web Start cache and the username of the user running the Java Web Start application. (CVE-2008-5341) - A vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment with launching Java Web Start applications may allow an untrusted Java Web Start application to escalate privileges. For example, an untrusted application may grant itself permissions to read and write local files or execute local applications that are accessible to the user running the untrusted application. (CVE-2008-5340) - The UTF-8 (Unicode Transformation Format-8) decoder in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) accepts encodings that are longer than the 'shortest' form. This behavior is not a vulnerability in Java SE. However, it may be leveraged to exploit systems running software that relies on the JRE UTF-8 decoder to reject non-shortest form sequences. For example, non-shortest form sequences may be decoded into illegal URIs, which may then allow files that are not otherwise accessible to be read, if the URIs are not checked following UTF-8 decoding. (CVE-2008-5351) - A buffer vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) with processing fonts may allow an untrusted applet or Java Web Start application to escalate privileges. For example, an untrusted applet may grant itself permissions to read and write local files or execute local applications that are accessible to the user running the untrusted applet. (CVE-2008-5356) - A buffer vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) with processing fonts may allow an untrusted applet or Java Web Start application to escalate privileges. For example, an untrusted applet may grant itself permissions to read and write local files or execute local applications that are accessible to the user running the untrusted applet. (CVE-2008-5357) - A buffer overflow vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment with processing GIF images may allow an untrusted Java Web Start application to escalate privileges. For example, an untrusted application may grant itself permissions to read and write local files or execute local applications that are accessible to the user running the untrusted applet. (CVE-2008-5358) - A security vulnerability in the the Java Web Start BasicService allows untrusted applications that are downloaded from another system to request local files to be displayed by the browser of the user running the untrusted application.

(CVE-2008-5347, CVE-2008-5350) It was discovered that Kerberos authentication and RSA public key processing were not correctly handled in Java. A remote attacker could exploit these flaws to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2008-5348, CVE-2008-5349) It was discovered that Java accepted UTF-8 encodings that might be handled incorrectly by certain applications. A remote attacker could bypass string filters, possible leading to other exploits. (CVE-2008-5351) Overflows were discovered in Java JAR processing. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a malicious JAR file, a remote attacker could crash the application, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2008-5352, CVE-2008-5354) It was discovered that Java calendar objects were not unserialized safely. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted calendar object, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary code with user privileges. (CVE-2008-5353) It was discovered that the Java image handling code could lead to memory corruption. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted image, a remote attacker could crash the application, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2008-5358, CVE-2008-5359) It was discovered that temporary files created by Java had predictable names. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted JAR file, a remote attacker could overwrite sensitive information. (CVE-2008-5360).

    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)
