Impact:
Exploitability:
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.

  • NASL family Debian Local Security Checks
    NASL id DEBIAN_DSA-1807.NASL
    description James Ralston discovered that the sasl_encode64() function of cyrus-sasl2, a free library implementing the Simple Authentication and Security Layer, suffers from a missing null termination in certain situations. This causes several buffer overflows in situations where cyrus-sasl2 itself requires the string to be null terminated which can lead to denial of service or arbitrary code execution. Important notice (Quoting from US-CERT): While this patch will fix currently vulnerable code, it can cause non-vulnerable existing code to break. Here's a function prototype from include/saslutil.h to clarify my explanation : /* base64 encode * in -- input data * inlen -- input data length * out -- output buffer (will be NUL terminated) * outmax -- max size of output buffer * result: * outlen -- gets actual length of output buffer (optional) * * Returns SASL_OK on success, SASL_BUFOVER if result won't fit */ LIBSASL_API int sasl_encode64(const char *in, unsigned inlen, char *out, unsigned outmax, unsigned *outlen); Assume a scenario where calling code has been written in such a way that it calculates the exact size required for base64 encoding in advance, then allocates a buffer of that exact size, passing a pointer to the buffer into sasl_encode64() as *out. As long as this code does not anticipate that the buffer is NUL-terminated (does not call any string-handling functions like strlen(), for example) the code will work and it will not be vulnerable. Once this patch is applied, that same code will break because sasl_encode64() will begin to return SASL_BUFOVER.

    description Updated cyrus-imapd packages that fix a security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5. This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. The cyrus-imapd packages contain a high-performance mail server with IMAP, POP3, NNTP, and SIEVE support. It was discovered that the Cyrus SASL library (cyrus-sasl) does not always reliably terminate output from the sasl_encode64() function used by programs using this library. The Cyrus IMAP server (cyrus-imapd) relied on this function's output being properly terminated. Under certain conditions, improperly terminated output from sasl_encode64() could, potentially, cause cyrus-imapd to crash, disclose portions of its memory, or lead to SASL authentication failures. (CVE-2009-0688) Users of cyrus-imapd are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve this issue. After installing the update, cyrus-imapd will be restarted automatically.

statement The upstream fix for this issue is not backwards compatible and introduces an ABI change not allowed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Therefore, there is no plan to address this problem directly in cyrus-sasl packages. All applications shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux and using affected sasl_encode64() function were investigated and patched if their use of the function could have security consequences. See following bug report for further details: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=CVE-2009-0688#c20
