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 This kernel update for openSUSE 10.3 fixes some bugs and several security problems. The following security issues are fixed: CVE-2009-2692: A missing NULL pointer check in the socket sendpage function can be used by local attackers to gain root privileges. CVE-2009-2406: A kernel stack overflow when mounting eCryptfs filesystems in parse_tag_11_packet() was fixed. Code execution might be possible of ecryptfs is in use. CVE-2009-2407: A kernel heap overflow when mounting eCryptfs filesystems in parse_tag_3_packet() was fixed. Code execution might be possible of ecryptfs is in use. The compiler option -fno-delete-null-pointer-checks was added to the kernel build, and the -fwrapv compiler option usage was fixed to be used everywhere. This works around the compiler removing checks too aggressively. CVE-2009-1389: A crash in the r8169 driver when receiving large packets was fixed. This is probably exploitable only in the local network. CVE-2009-0676: A memory disclosure via the SO_BSDCOMPAT socket option was fixed. CVE-2009-1630: The nfs_permission function in fs/nfs/dir.c in the NFS client implementation when atomic_open is available, does not check execute (aka EXEC or MAY_EXEC) permission bits, which allows local users to bypass permissions and execute files, as demonstrated by files on an NFSv4 fileserver. random: make get_random_int() was made more random to enhance ASLR protection.

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

    description Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a denial of service, or privilege escalation. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CVE-2009-1895 Julien Tinnes and Tavis Ormandy reported an issue in the Linux personality code. Local users can take advantage of a setuid binary that can either be made to dereference a NULL pointer or drop privileges and return control to the user. This allows a user to bypass mmap_min_addr restrictions which can be exploited to execute arbitrary code. - CVE-2009-2287 Matt T. Yourst discovered an issue in the kvm subsystem. Local users with permission to manipulate /dev/kvm can cause a denial of service (hang) by providing an invalid cr3 value to the KVM_SET_SREGS call. - CVE-2009-2406 CVE-2009-2407 Ramon de Carvalho Valle discovered two issues with the eCryptfs layered filesystem using the fsfuzzer utility. A local user with permissions to perform an eCryptfs mount may modify the contents of a eCryptfs file, overflowing the stack and potentially gaining elevated privileges.

Security fixes : * the possibility of a timeout value overflow was found in the Linux kernel high-resolution timers functionality, hrtimers. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to execute arbitrary code, or cause a denial of service (kernel panic). (CVE-2007-5966, Important) * a flaw was found in the Intel PRO/1000 network driver in the Linux kernel. Frames with sizes near the MTU of an interface may be split across multiple hardware receive descriptors. Receipt of such a frame could leak through a validation check, leading to a corruption of the length check. A remote attacker could use this flaw to send a specially crafted packet that would cause a denial of service or code execution. (CVE-2009-1385, Important) * Michael Tokarev reported a flaw in the Realtek r8169 Ethernet driver in the Linux kernel. This driver allowed interfaces using this driver to receive frames larger than could be handled, which could lead to a remote denial of service or code execution. (CVE-2009-1389, Important) * the ADDR_COMPAT_LAYOUT and MMAP_PAGE_ZERO flags were not cleared when a setuid or setgid program was executed. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to bypass the mmap_min_addr protection mechanism and perform a NULL pointer dereference attack, or bypass the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) security feature. (CVE-2009-1895, Important) * Ramon de Carvalho Valle reported two flaws in the Linux kernel eCryptfs implementation. A local attacker with permissions to perform an eCryptfs mount could modify the metadata of the files in that eCrypfts mount to cause a buffer overflow, leading to a denial of service or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-2406, CVE-2009-2407, Important) * Konstantin Khlebnikov discovered a race condition in the ptrace implementation in the Linux kernel. This race condition can occur when the process tracing and the process being traced participate in a core dump. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to trigger a deadlock, resulting in a partial denial of service. (CVE-2009-1388, Moderate) Bug fixes (see References below for a link to more detailed notes) : * possible dom0 crash when a Xen para-virtualized guest was installed while another para-virtualized guest was rebooting. (BZ#497812) * no directory removal audit record if the directory and its subtree were recursively watched by an audit rule. (BZ#507561) * running 'echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches' under high memory load could cause a kernel panic. (BZ#503692) * on 32-bit systems, core dumps for some multithreaded applications did not include all thread information.

    description Some vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in the Linux 2.6 kernel : The personality subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.31-rc3 has a PER_CLEAR_ON_SETID setting that does not clear the ADDR_COMPAT_LAYOUT and MMAP_PAGE_ZERO flags when executing a setuid or setgid program, which makes it easier for local users to leverage the details of memory usage to (1) conduct NULL pointer dereference attacks, (2) bypass the mmap_min_addr protection mechanism, or (3) defeat address space layout randomization (ASLR). (CVE-2009-1895) Stack-based buffer overflow in the parse_tag_11_packet function in fs/ecryptfs/keystore.c in the eCryptfs subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.30.4 allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly gain privileges via vectors involving a crafted eCryptfs file, related to not ensuring that the key signature length in a Tag 11 packet is compatible with the key signature buffer size. (CVE-2009-2406) Heap-based buffer overflow in the parse_tag_3_packet function in fs/ecryptfs/keystore.c in the eCryptfs subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.30.4 allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly gain privileges via vectors involving a crafted eCryptfs file, related to a large encrypted key size in a Tag 3 packet. (CVE-2009-2407) The d_delete function in fs/ecryptfs/inode.c in eCryptfs in the Linux kernel 2.6.31 allows local users to cause a denial of service (kernel OOPS) and possibly execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors that cause a negative dentry and trigger a NULL pointer dereference, as demonstrated via a Mutt temporary directory in an eCryptfs mount. (CVE-2009-2908) The kvm_emulate_hypercall function in arch/x86/kvm/x86.c in KVM in the Linux kernel 2.6.25-rc1, and other versions before 2.6.31, when running on x86 systems, does not prevent access to MMU hypercalls from ring 0, which allows local guest OS users to cause a denial of service (guest kernel crash) and read or write guest kernel memory via unspecified random addresses. (CVE-2009-3290) Additionaly, it includes the fixes from the stable kernel version 2.6.27.37. It also fixes also fixes IBM x3650 M2 hanging when using both network interfaces and Wake on Lan problems on r8169. For details, check the package changelog.

    title Scientific Linux Security Update : kernel for SL 5.x on i386/x86_64
  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2009-1193.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix several security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security fixes : * the possibility of a timeout value overflow was found in the Linux kernel high-resolution timers functionality, hrtimers. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to execute arbitrary code, or cause a denial of service (kernel panic). (CVE-2007-5966, Important) * a flaw was found in the Intel PRO/1000 network driver in the Linux kernel. Frames with sizes near the MTU of an interface may be split across multiple hardware receive descriptors. Receipt of such a frame could leak through a validation check, leading to a corruption of the length check. A remote attacker could use this flaw to send a specially crafted packet that would cause a denial of service or code execution. (CVE-2009-1385, Important) * Michael Tokarev reported a flaw in the Realtek r8169 Ethernet driver in the Linux kernel. This driver allowed interfaces using this driver to receive frames larger than could be handled, which could lead to a remote denial of service or code execution. (CVE-2009-1389, Important) * the ADDR_COMPAT_LAYOUT and MMAP_PAGE_ZERO flags were not cleared when a setuid or setgid program was executed. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to bypass the mmap_min_addr protection mechanism and perform a NULL pointer dereference attack, or bypass the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) security feature. (CVE-2009-1895, Important) * Ramon de Carvalho Valle reported two flaws in the Linux kernel eCryptfs implementation. A local attacker with permissions to perform an eCryptfs mount could modify the metadata of the files in that eCrypfts mount to cause a buffer overflow, leading to a denial of service or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-2406, CVE-2009-2407, Important) * Konstantin Khlebnikov discovered a race condition in the ptrace implementation in the Linux kernel. This race condition can occur when the process tracing and the process being traced participate in a core dump. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to trigger a deadlock, resulting in a partial denial of service. (CVE-2009-1388, Moderate) Bug fixes (see References below for a link to more detailed notes) : * possible dom0 crash when a Xen para-virtualized guest was installed while another para-virtualized guest was rebooting. (BZ#497812) * no directory removal audit record if the directory and its subtree were recursively watched by an audit rule. (BZ#507561) * running 'echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches' under high memory load could cause a kernel panic. (BZ#503692) * on 32-bit systems, core dumps for some multithreaded applications did not include all thread information. (BZ#505322) * a stack buffer used by get_event_name() was too small for nul terminator sprintf() writes. This could lead to an invalid pointer or kernel panic. (BZ#506906) * when using the aic94xx driver, systems with SATA drives may not boot due to a libsas bug. (BZ#506029) * Wacom Cintiq 21UX and Intuos stylus buttons were handled incorrectly when moved away from and back to these tablets. (BZ#508275) * CPU 'soft lockup' messages and possibe system hangs on systems with certain Broadcom network devices and running the Linux kernel from the kernel-xen package. (BZ#503689) * on 64-bit PowerPC, getitimer() failed for programs using the ITIMER_REAL timer that were also compiled for 64-bit systems. This caused such programs to abort. (BZ#510018) * write operations could be blocked even when using O_NONBLOCK. (BZ#510239) * the 'pci=nomsi' option was required for installing and booting Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 on systems with VIA VT3364 chipsets. (BZ#507529) * shutting down, destroying, or migrating Xen guests with large amounts of memory could cause other guests to be temporarily unresponsive. (BZ#512311) Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. Systems must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

    NASL id SUSE_11_0_KERNEL-090814.NASL
    description This kernel update for openSUSE 11.0 fixes some bugs and several security problems. The following security issues are fixed: CVE-2009-2692: A missing NULL pointer check in the socket sendpage function can be used by local attackers to gain root privileges. CVE-2009-2406: A kernel stack overflow when mounting eCryptfs filesystems in parse_tag_11_packet() was fixed. Code execution might be possible of ecryptfs is in use. CVE-2009-2407: A kernel heap overflow when mounting eCryptfs filesystems in parse_tag_3_packet() was fixed. Code execution might be possible of ecryptfs is in use. The compiler option -fno-delete-null-pointer-checks was added to the kernel build, and the -fwrapv compiler option usage was fixed to be used everywhere. This works around the compiler removing checks too aggressively. CVE-2009-1389: A crash in the r8169 driver when receiving large packets was fixed. This is probably exploitable only in the local network. CVE-2009-1895: Personality flags on set*id were not cleared correctly, so ASLR and NULL page protection could be bypassed. CVE-2009-1046: A utf-8 console memory corruption that can be used for local privilege escalation was fixed. The NULL page protection using mmap_min_addr was enabled (was disabled before). No CVE yet: A sigaltstack kernel memory disclosure was fixed. CVE-2008-5033: A local denial of service (Oops) in video4linux tvaudio was fixed. CVE-2009-1385: A Integer underflow in the e1000_clean_rx_irq function in drivers/net/e1000/e1000_main.c in the e1000 driver the e1000e driver in the Linux kernel, and Intel Wired Ethernet (aka e1000) before 7.5.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) via a crafted frame size.

    NASL id DEBIAN_DSA-1844.NASL
    description Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a denial of service or privilege escalation. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CVE-2009-1385 Neil Horman discovered a missing fix from the e1000 network driver. A remote user may cause a denial of service by way of a kernel panic triggered by specially crafted frame sizes. - CVE-2009-1389 Michael Tokarev discovered an issue in the r8169 network driver. Remote users on the same LAN may cause a denial of service by way of a kernel panic triggered by receiving a large size frame. - CVE-2009-1630 Frank Filz discovered that local users may be able to execute files without execute permission when accessed via an nfs4 mount. - CVE-2009-1633 Jeff Layton and Suresh Jayaraman fixed several buffer overflows in the CIFS filesystem which allow remote servers to cause memory corruption. - CVE-2009-1895 Julien Tinnes and Tavis Ormandy reported an issue in the Linux personality code. Local users can take advantage of a setuid binary that can either be made to dereference a NULL pointer or drop privileges and return control to the user. This allows a user to bypass mmap_min_addr restrictions which can be exploited to execute arbitrary code. - CVE-2009-1914 Mikulas Patocka discovered an issue in sparc64 kernels that allows local users to cause a denial of service (crash) by reading the /proc/iomem file. - CVE-2009-1961 Miklos Szeredi reported an issue in the ocfs2 filesystem. Local users can create a denial of service (filesystem deadlock) using a particular sequence of splice system calls. - CVE-2009-2406 CVE-2009-2407 Ramon de Carvalho Valle discovered two issues with the eCryptfs layered filesystem using the fsfuzzer utility. A local user with permissions to perform an eCryptfs mount may modify the contents of a eCryptfs file, overflowing the stack and potentially gaining elevated privileges.
