CWE CWE-200
CAPEC
  • Subverting Environment Variable Values
    The attacker directly or indirectly modifies environment variables used by or controlling the target software. The attacker's goal is to cause the target software to deviate from its expected operation in a manner that benefits the attacker.
  • Footprinting
    An attacker engages in probing and exploration activity to identify constituents and properties of the target. Footprinting is a general term to describe a variety of information gathering techniques, often used by attackers in preparation for some attack. It consists of using tools to learn as much as possible about the composition, configuration, and security mechanisms of the targeted application, system or network. Information that might be collected during a footprinting effort could include open ports, applications and their versions, network topology, and similar information. While footprinting is not intended to be damaging (although certain activities, such as network scans, can sometimes cause disruptions to vulnerable applications inadvertently) it may often pave the way for more damaging attacks.
  • Exploiting Trust in Client (aka Make the Client Invisible)
    An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities in client/server communication channel authentication and data integrity. It leverages the implicit trust a server places in the client, or more importantly, that which the server believes is the client. An attacker executes this type of attack by placing themselves in the communication channel between client and server such that communication directly to the server is possible where the server believes it is communicating only with a valid client. There are numerous variations of this type of attack.
  • Browser Fingerprinting
    An attacker carefully crafts small snippets of Java Script to efficiently detect the type of browser the potential victim is using. Many web-based attacks need prior knowledge of the web browser including the version of browser to ensure successful exploitation of a vulnerability. Having this knowledge allows an attacker to target the victim with attacks that specifically exploit known or zero day weaknesses in the type and version of the browser used by the victim. Automating this process via Java Script as a part of the same delivery system used to exploit the browser is considered more efficient as the attacker can supply a browser fingerprinting method and integrate it with exploit code, all contained in Java Script and in response to the same web page request by the browser.
  • Session Credential Falsification through Prediction
    This attack targets predictable session ID in order to gain privileges. The attacker can predict the session ID used during a transaction to perform spoofing and session hijacking.
  • Reusing Session IDs (aka Session Replay)
    This attack targets the reuse of valid session ID to spoof the target system in order to gain privileges. The attacker tries to reuse a stolen session ID used previously during a transaction to perform spoofing and session hijacking. Another name for this type of attack is Session Replay.
  • 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 seamonkey was updated to version 1.1.18, fixing various security issues : MFSA 2009-43 / CVE-2009-2404 Moxie Marlinspike reported a heap overflow vulnerability in the code that handles regular expressions in certificate names. This vulnerability could be used to compromise the browser and run arbitrary code by presenting a specially crafted certificate to the client. This code provided compatibility with the non-standard regular expression syntax historically supported by Netscape clients and servers. With version 3.5 Firefox switched to the more limited industry-standard wildcard syntax instead and is not vulnerable to this flaw. MFSA 2009-42 / CVE-2009-2408: IOActive security researcher Dan Kaminsky reported a mismatch in the treatment of domain names in SSL certificates between SSL clients and the Certificate Authorities (CA) which issue server certificates. In particular, if a malicious person requested a certificate for a host name with an invalid null character in it most CAs would issue the certificate if the requester owned the domain specified after the null, while most SSL clients (browsers) ignored that part of the name and used the unvalidated part in front of the null. This made it possible for attackers to obtain certificates that would function for any site they wished to target. These certificates could be used to intercept and potentially alter encrypted communication between the client and a server such as sensitive bank account transactions. This vulnerability was independently reported to us by researcher Moxie Marlinspike who also noted that since Firefox relies on SSL to protect the integrity of security updates this attack could be used to serve malicious updates. Mozilla would like to thank Dan and the Microsoft Vulnerability Research team for coordinating a multiple-vendor response to this problem. The update also contains the fixes from the skipped 1.1.17 security update: MFSA 2009-17/CVE-2009-1307: Same-origin violations when Adobe Flash loaded via view-source: scheme MFSA 2009-21/CVE-2009-1311:POST data sent to wrong site when saving web page with embedded frame MFSA 2009-24/CVE-2009-1392/CVE-2009-1832/CVE-2009-1833: Crashes with evidence of memory corruption (rv:1.9.0.11) MFSA 2009-26/CVE-2009-1835: Arbitrary domain cookie access by local file: resources MFSA 2009-27/CVE-2009-1836: SSL tampering via non-200 responses to proxy CONNECT requests MFSA 2009-29/CVE-2009-1838: Arbitrary code execution using event listeners attached to an element whose owner document is null MFSA 2009-32/CVE-2009-1841: JavaScript chrome privilege escalation MFSA 2009-33/CVE-2009-2210: Crash viewing multipart/alternative message with text/enhanced part

    description The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 3.0.11. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues : - Multiple memory corruption vulnerabilities could potentially be exploited to execute arbitrary code. (MFSA 2009-24) - Certain invalid Unicode characters, when used as a part of IDN, can be displayed as a whitespace in the location bar. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to spoof the location bar. (MFSA 2009-25) - It may be possible for local resources loaded via 'file:' protocol to access any domain's cookies saved on a user's system. (MFSA 2009-26) - It may be possible to tamper with SSL data via non-200 responses to proxy CONNECT requests. (MFSA 2009-27) - A race condition exists in 'NPObjWrapper_NewResolve' when accessing the properties of a NPObject, a wrapped JSObject. This flaw could be potentially exploited to execute arbitrary code on the remote system. (MFSA 2009-28) - If the owner document of an element becomes null after garbage collection, then it may be possible to execute the event listeners within the wrong JavaScript context. An attacker could potentially exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges.

    description seamonkey was updated to version 1.1.18, fixing various security issues : MFSA 2009-43 / CVE-2009-2404 Moxie Marlinspike reported a heap overflow vulnerability in the code that handles regular expressions in certificate names. This vulnerability could be used to compromise the browser and run arbitrary code by presenting a specially crafted certificate to the client. This code provided compatibility with the non-standard regular expression syntax historically supported by Netscape clients and servers. With version 3.5 Firefox switched to the more limited industry-standard wildcard syntax instead and is not vulnerable to this flaw. MFSA 2009-42 / CVE-2009-2408: IOActive security researcher Dan Kaminsky reported a mismatch in the treatment of domain names in SSL certificates between SSL clients and the Certificate Authorities (CA) which issue server certificates. In particular, if a malicious person requested a certificate for a host name with an invalid null character in it most CAs would issue the certificate if the requester owned the domain specified after the null, while most SSL clients (browsers) ignored that part of the name and used the unvalidated part in front of the null. This made it possible for attackers to obtain certificates that would function for any site they wished to target. These certificates could be used to intercept and potentially alter encrypted communication between the client and a server such as sensitive bank account transactions. This vulnerability was independently reported to us by researcher Moxie Marlinspike who also noted that since Firefox relies on SSL to protect the integrity of security updates this attack could be used to serve malicious updates. Mozilla would like to thank Dan and the Microsoft Vulnerability Research team for coordinating a multiple-vendor response to this problem. The update also contains the fixes from the skipped 1.1.17 security update: MFSA 2009-17/CVE-2009-1307: Same-origin violations when Adobe Flash loaded via view-source: scheme MFSA 2009-21/CVE-2009-1311:POST data sent to wrong site when saving web page with embedded frame MFSA 2009-24/CVE-2009-1392/CVE-2009-1832/CVE-2009-1833: Crashes with evidence of memory corruption (rv:1.9.0.11) MFSA 2009-26/CVE-2009-1835: Arbitrary domain cookie access by local file: resources MFSA 2009-27/CVE-2009-1836: SSL tampering via non-200 responses to proxy CONNECT requests MFSA 2009-29/CVE-2009-1838: Arbitrary code execution using event listeners attached to an element whose owner document is null MFSA 2009-32/CVE-2009-1841: JavaScript chrome privilege escalation MFSA 2009-33/CVE-2009-2210: Crash viewing multipart/alternative message with text/enhanced part

    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2009:1095 : Updated firefox packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5. This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser. XULRunner provides the XUL Runtime environment for Mozilla Firefox. Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Firefox. (CVE-2009-1392, CVE-2009-1832, CVE-2009-1833, CVE-2009-1837, CVE-2009-1838, CVE-2009-1841) Multiple flaws were found in the processing of malformed, local file content. If a user loaded malicious, local content via the file:// URL, it was possible for that content to access other local data. (CVE-2009-1835, CVE-2009-1839) A script, privilege elevation flaw was found in the way Firefox loaded XML User Interface Language (XUL) scripts. Firefox and certain add-ons could load malicious content when certain policy checks did not happen. (CVE-2009-1840) A flaw was found in the way Firefox displayed certain Unicode characters in International Domain Names (IDN). If an IDN contained invalid characters, they may have been displayed as spaces, making it appear to the user that they were visiting a trusted site. (CVE-2009-1834) A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled error responses returned from proxy servers. If an attacker is able to conduct a man-in-the-middle attack against a Firefox instance that is using a proxy server, they may be able to steal sensitive information from the site the user is visiting. (CVE-2009-1836) For technical details regarding these flaws, refer to the Mozilla security advisories for Firefox 3.0.11. You can find a link to the Mozilla advisories in the References section of this errata. All Firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain Firefox version 3.0.11, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

    description Several flaws were discovered in the browser and JavaScript engines of Firefox. If a user were tricked into viewing a malicious website, a remote attacker could cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2009-1392, CVE-2009-1832, CVE-2009-1833, CVE-2009-1837, CVE-2009-1838) Pavel Cvrcek discovered that Firefox would sometimes display certain invalid Unicode characters as whitespace. An attacker could exploit this to spoof the location bar, such as in a phishing attack. (CVE-2009-1834) Gregory Fleischer, Adam Barth and Collin Jackson discovered that Firefox would allow access to local files from resources loaded via the file: protocol. If a user were tricked into downloading then opening a malicious file, an attacker could steal potentially sensitive information. (CVE-2009-1835, CVE-2009-1839) Shuo Chen, Ziqing Mao, Yi-Min Wang, and Ming Zhang discovered that Firefox did not properly handle error responses when connecting to a proxy server. If a remote attacker were able to perform a man-in-the-middle attack, this flaw could be exploited to view sensitive information. (CVE-2009-1836) Wladimir Palant discovered Firefox did not check content-loading policies when loading external script files into XUL documents. As a result, Firefox might load malicious content under certain circumstances. (CVE-2009-1840) It was discovered that Firefox could be made to run scripts with elevated privileges. If a user were tricked into viewing a malicious website, an attacker could cause a chrome privileged object, such as the browser sidebar, to run arbitrary code via interactions with the attacker controlled website. (CVE-2009-1841). Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory.

    description Updated firefox packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5. This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser. XULRunner provides the XUL Runtime environment for Mozilla Firefox. Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Firefox. (CVE-2009-1392, CVE-2009-1832, CVE-2009-1833, CVE-2009-1837, CVE-2009-1838, CVE-2009-1841) Multiple flaws were found in the processing of malformed, local file content. If a user loaded malicious, local content via the file:// URL, it was possible for that content to access other local data. (CVE-2009-1835, CVE-2009-1839) A script, privilege elevation flaw was found in the way Firefox loaded XML User Interface Language (XUL) scripts. Firefox and certain add-ons could load malicious content when certain policy checks did not happen. (CVE-2009-1840) A flaw was found in the way Firefox displayed certain Unicode characters in International Domain Names (IDN). If an IDN contained invalid characters, they may have been displayed as spaces, making it appear to the user that they were visiting a trusted site. (CVE-2009-1834) A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled error responses returned from proxy servers. If an attacker is able to conduct a man-in-the-middle attack against a Firefox instance that is using a proxy server, they may be able to steal sensitive information from the site the user is visiting. (CVE-2009-1836) For technical details regarding these flaws, refer to the Mozilla security advisories for Firefox 3.0.11. You can find a link to the Mozilla advisories in the References section of this errata. All Firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain Firefox version 3.0.11, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

    description seamonkey was updated to version 1.1.18, fixing various security issues : MFSA 2009-43 / CVE-2009-2404 Moxie Marlinspike reported a heap overflow vulnerability in the code that handles regular expressions in certificate names. This vulnerability could be used to compromise the browser and run arbitrary code by presenting a specially crafted certificate to the client. This code provided compatibility with the non-standard regular expression syntax historically supported by Netscape clients and servers. With version 3.5 Firefox switched to the more limited industry-standard wildcard syntax instead and is not vulnerable to this flaw. MFSA 2009-42 / CVE-2009-2408: IOActive security researcher Dan Kaminsky reported a mismatch in the treatment of domain names in SSL certificates between SSL clients and the Certificate Authorities (CA) which issue server certificates. In particular, if a malicious person requested a certificate for a host name with an invalid null character in it most CAs would issue the certificate if the requester owned the domain specified after the null, while most SSL clients (browsers) ignored that part of the name and used the unvalidated part in front of the null. This made it possible for attackers to obtain certificates that would function for any site they wished to target. These certificates could be used to intercept and potentially alter encrypted communication between the client and a server such as sensitive bank account transactions. This vulnerability was independently reported to us by researcher Moxie Marlinspike who also noted that since Firefox relies on SSL to protect the integrity of security updates this attack could be used to serve malicious updates. Mozilla would like to thank Dan and the Microsoft Vulnerability Research team for coordinating a multiple-vendor response to this problem. The update also contains the fixes from the skipped 1.1.17 security update: MFSA 2009-17/CVE-2009-1307: Same-origin violations when Adobe Flash loaded via view-source: scheme MFSA 2009-21/CVE-2009-1311:POST data sent to wrong site when saving web page with embedded frame MFSA 2009-24/CVE-2009-1392/CVE-2009-1832/CVE-2009-1833: Crashes with evidence of memory corruption (rv:1.9.0.11) MFSA 2009-26/CVE-2009-1835: Arbitrary domain cookie access by local file: resources MFSA 2009-27/CVE-2009-1836: SSL tampering via non-200 responses to proxy CONNECT requests MFSA 2009-29/CVE-2009-1838: Arbitrary code execution using event listeners attached to an element whose owner document is null MFSA 2009-32/CVE-2009-1841: JavaScript chrome privilege escalation MFSA 2009-33/CVE-2009-2210: Crash viewing multipart/alternative message with text/enhanced part
