ID CVE-2009-2514
Summary win32k.sys in the kernel in Microsoft Windows 2000 SP4, XP SP2 and SP3, and Server 2003 SP2 does not correctly parse font code during construction of a directory-entry table, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted Embedded OpenType (EOT) font, aka "Win32k EOT Parsing Vulnerability."

CWE CWE-94
CAPEC
  • 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.
  • Manipulating User-Controlled Variables
    This attack targets user controlled variables (DEBUG=1, PHP Globals, and So Forth). An attacker can override environment variables leveraging user-supplied, untrusted query variables directly used on the application server without any data sanitization. In extreme cases, the attacker can change variables controlling the business logic of the application. For instance, in languages like PHP, a number of poorly set default configurations may allow the user to override variables.

description The remote host contains a version of the Windows kernel that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - A NULL pointer dereferencing vulnerability allowing a local user to elevate his privileges (CVE-2009-1127) - Insufficient validation of certain input passed to GDI from user mode allows a local user to run arbitrary code in kernel mode. (CVE-2009-2513) - A parsing vulnerability when decoding a specially crafted Embedded OpenType (EOT) font may allow a remote user to execute arbitrary code on the remote host by luring a user of the remote host into viewing a web page containing such a malformed font.
