ID CVE-2009-3554
Summary Twiddle in Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (aka JBoss EAP or JBEAP) 4.2 before 4.2.0.CP08 and 4.3 before 4.3.0.CP07 writes the JMX password, and other command-line arguments, to the twiddle.log file, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information by reading this file.

Impact:
Exploitability:
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 Updated JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBEAP) 4.2 packages that fix multiple security issues, several bugs, and add enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 as JBEAP 4.2.0.CP08. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. JBoss Enterprise Application Platform is the market leading platform for innovative and scalable Java applications; integrating the JBoss Application Server, with JBoss Hibernate and JBoss Seam into a complete, simple enterprise solution. This release of JBEAP for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 serves as a replacement to JBEAP 4.2.0.CP07. These updated packages include bug fixes and enhancements which are detailed in the Release Notes, available shortly from: http://www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/JBoss_Enterprise_Application_Platform / The following security issues are also fixed with this release : A missing check for the recommended minimum length of the truncated form of HMAC-based XML signatures was found in xml-security. An attacker could use this flaw to create a specially crafted XML file that forges an XML signature, allowing the attacker to bypass authentication that is based on the XML Signature specification. (CVE-2009-0217) Swatej Kumar discovered cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws in the JBoss Application Server Web Console. An attacker could use these flaws to present misleading data to an authenticated user, or execute arbitrary scripting code in the context of the authenticated user's browser session. (CVE-2009-2405) A flaw was found in the way the Apache Xerces2 Java Parser processed the SYSTEM identifier in DTDs. A remote attacker could provide a specially crafted XML file, which once parsed by an application using the Apache Xerces2 Java Parser, would lead to a denial of service (application hang due to excessive CPU use). (CVE-2009-2625) An information leak flaw was found in the twiddle command line client. The JMX password was logged in plain text to 'twiddle.log'. (CVE-2009-3554) An XSS flaw was found in the JMX Console. An attacker could use this flaw to present misleading data to an authenticated user, or execute arbitrary scripting code in the context of the authenticated user's browser session. (CVE-2009-1380) Warning: Before applying this update, please backup the JBEAP 'server/[configuration]/deploy/' directory, and any other customized configuration files. All users of JBEAP 4.2 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages.
