CWE CWE-20
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.
  • Server Side Include (SSI) Injection
    An attacker can use Server Side Include (SSI) Injection to send code to a web application that then gets executed by the web server. Doing so enables the attacker to achieve similar results to Cross Site Scripting, viz., arbitrary code execution and information disclosure, albeit on a more limited scale, since the SSI directives are nowhere near as powerful as a full-fledged scripting language. Nonetheless, the attacker can conveniently gain access to sensitive files, such as password files, and execute shell commands.
  • Cross Zone Scripting
    An attacker is able to cause a victim to load content into their web-browser that bypasses security zone controls and gain access to increased privileges to execute scripting code or other web objects such as unsigned ActiveX controls or applets. This is a privilege elevation attack targeted at zone-based web-browser security. In a zone-based model, pages belong to one of a set of zones corresponding to the level of privilege assigned to that page. Pages in an untrusted zone would have a lesser level of access to the system and/or be restricted in the types of executable content it was allowed to invoke. In a cross-zone scripting attack, a page that should be assigned to a less privileged zone is granted the privileges of a more trusted zone. This can be accomplished by exploiting bugs in the browser, exploiting incorrect configuration in the zone controls, through a cross-site scripting attack that causes the attackers' content to be treated as coming from a more trusted page, or by leveraging some piece of system functionality that is accessible from both the trusted and less trusted zone. This attack differs from "Restful Privilege Escalation" in that the latter correlates to the inadequate securing of RESTful access methods (such as HTTP DELETE) on the server, while cross-zone scripting attacks the concept of security zones as implemented by a browser.
  • Cross Site Scripting through Log Files
    An attacker may leverage a system weakness where logs are susceptible to log injection to insert scripts into the system's logs. If these logs are later viewed by an administrator through a thin administrative interface and the log data is not properly HTML encoded before being written to the page, the attackers' scripts stored in the log will be executed in the administrative interface with potentially serious consequences. This attack pattern is really a combination of two other attack patterns: log injection and stored cross site scripting.
  • Command Line Execution through SQL Injection
    An attacker uses standard SQL injection methods to inject data into the command line for execution. This could be done directly through misuse of directives such as MSSQL_xp_cmdshell or indirectly through injection of data into the database that would be interpreted as shell commands. Sometime later, an unscrupulous backend application (or could be part of the functionality of the same application) fetches the injected data stored in the database and uses this data as command line arguments without performing proper validation. The malicious data escapes that data plane by spawning new commands to be executed on the host.
  • Object Relational Mapping Injection
    An attacker leverages a weakness present in the database access layer code generated with an Object Relational Mapping (ORM) tool or a weakness in the way that a developer used a persistence framework to inject his or her own SQL commands to be executed against the underlying database. The attack here is similar to plain SQL injection, except that the application does not use JDBC to directly talk to the database, but instead it uses a data access layer generated by an ORM tool or framework (e.g. Hibernate). While most of the time code generated by an ORM tool contains safe access methods that are immune to SQL injection, sometimes either due to some weakness in the generated code or due to the fact that the developer failed to use the generated access methods properly, SQL injection is still possible.
  • SQL Injection through SOAP Parameter Tampering
    An attacker modifies the parameters of the SOAP message that is sent from the service consumer to the service provider to initiate a SQL injection attack. On the service provider side, the SOAP message is parsed and parameters are not properly validated before being used to access a database in a way that does not use parameter binding, thus enabling the attacker to control the structure of the executed SQL query. This pattern describes a SQL injection attack with the delivery mechanism being a SOAP message.
  • 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.
  • Format String Injection
    An attacker includes formatting characters in a string input field on the target application. Most applications assume that users will provide static text and may respond unpredictably to the presence of formatting character. For example, in certain functions of the C programming languages such as printf, the formatting character %s will print the contents of a memory location expecting this location to identify a string and the formatting character %n prints the number of DWORD written in the memory. An attacker can use this to read or write to memory locations or files, or simply to manipulate the value of the resulting text in unexpected ways. Reading or writing memory may result in program crashes and writing memory could result in the execution of arbitrary code if the attacker can write to the program stack.
  • LDAP Injection
    An attacker manipulates or crafts an LDAP query for the purpose of undermining the security of the target. Some applications use user input to create LDAP queries that are processed by an LDAP server. For example, a user might provide their username during authentication and the username might be inserted in an LDAP query during the authentication process. An attacker could use this input to inject additional commands into an LDAP query that could disclose sensitive information. For example, entering a * in the aforementioned query might return information about all users on the system. This attack is very similar to an SQL injection attack in that it manipulates a query to gather additional information or coerce a particular return value.
  • Relative Path Traversal
    An attacker exploits a weakness in input validation on the target by supplying a specially constructed path utilizing dot and slash characters for the purpose of obtaining access to arbitrary files or resources. An attacker modifies a known path on the target in order to reach material that is not available through intended channels. These attacks normally involve adding additional path separators (/ or \) and/or dots (.), or encodings thereof, in various combinations in order to reach parent directories or entirely separate trees of the target's directory structure.
  • 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.
  • Variable Manipulation
    An attacker manipulates variables used by an application to perform a variety of possible attacks. This can either be performed through the manipulation of function call parameters or by manipulating external variables, such as environment variables, that are used by an application. Changing variable values is usually undertaken as part of another attack; for example, a path traversal (inserting relative path modifiers) or buffer overflow (enlarging a variable value beyond an application's ability to store it).
  • Embedding Scripts in Non-Script Elements
    This attack is a form of Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) where malicious scripts are embedded in elements that are not expected to host scripts such as image tags (<img>), comments in XML documents (< !-CDATA->), etc. These tags may not be subject to the same input validation, output validation, and other content filtering and checking routines, so this can create an opportunity for an attacker to tunnel through the application's elements and launch a XSS attack through other elements. As with all remote attacks, it is important to differentiate the ability to launch an attack (such as probing an internal network for unpatched servers) and the ability of the remote attacker to collect and interpret the output of said attack.
  • Flash Injection
    An attacker tricks a victim to execute malicious flash content that executes commands or makes flash calls specified by the attacker. One example of this attack is cross-site flashing, an attacker controlled parameter to a reference call loads from content specified by the attacker.
  • Cross-Site Scripting Using Alternate Syntax
    The attacker uses alternate forms of keywords or commands that result in the same action as the primary form but which may not be caught by filters. For example, many keywords are processed in a case insensitive manner. If the site's web filtering algorithm does not convert all tags into a consistent case before the comparison with forbidden keywords it is possible to bypass filters (e.g., incomplete black lists) by using an alternate case structure. For example, the "script" tag using the alternate forms of "Script" or "ScRiPt" may bypass filters where "script" is the only form tested. Other variants using different syntax representations are also possible as well as using pollution meta-characters or entities that are eventually ignored by the rendering engine. The attack can result in the execution of otherwise prohibited functionality.
  • 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.
  • XML Nested Payloads
    Applications often need to transform data in and out of the XML format by using an XML parser. It may be possible for an attacker to inject data that may have an adverse effect on the XML parser when it is being processed. By nesting XML data and causing this data to be continuously self-referential, an attacker can cause the XML parser to consume more resources while processing, causing excessive memory consumption and CPU utilization. An attacker's goal is to leverage parser failure to his or her advantage. In most cases this type of an attack will result in a denial of service due to an application becoming unstable, freezing, or crash. However it may be possible to cause a crash resulting in arbitrary code execution, leading to a jump from the data plane to the control plane [R.230.1].
  • XML Oversized Payloads
    Applications often need to transform data in and out of the XML format by using an XML parser. It may be possible for an attacker to inject data that may have an adverse effect on the XML parser when it is being processed. By supplying oversized payloads in input vectors that will be processed by the XML parser, an attacker can cause the XML parser to consume more resources while processing, causing excessive memory consumption and CPU utilization, and potentially cause execution of arbitrary code. An attacker's goal is to leverage parser failure to his or her advantage. In many cases this type of an attack will result in a denial of service due to an application becoming unstable, freezing, or crash. However it is possible to cause a crash resulting in arbitrary code execution, leading to a jump from the data plane to the control plane [R.231.1].
  • 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).
  • Cross-Site Scripting via Encoded URI Schemes
    An attack of this type exploits the ability of most browsers to interpret "data", "javascript" or other URI schemes as client-side executable content placeholders. This attack consists of passing a malicious URI in an anchor tag HREF attribute or any other similar attributes in other HTML tags. Such malicious URI contains, for example, a base64 encoded HTML content with an embedded cross-site scripting payload. The attack is executed when the browser interprets the malicious content i.e., for example, when the victim clicks on the malicious link.
  • XML Injection
    An attacker utilizes crafted XML user-controllable input to probe, attack, and inject data into the XML database, using techniques similar to SQL injection. The user-controllable input can allow for unauthorized viewing of data, bypassing authentication or the front-end application for direct XML database access, and possibly altering database information.
  • Environment Variable Manipulation
    An attacker manipulates environment variables used by an application to perform a variety of possible attacks. Changing variable values is usually undertaken as part of another attack; for example, a path traversal (inserting relative path modifiers) or buffer overflow (enlarging a variable value beyond an application's ability to store it).
  • Global variable manipulation
    An attacker manipulates global variables used by an application to perform a variety of possible attacks. Changing variable values is usually undertaken as part of another attack; for example, a path traversal (inserting relative path modifiers) or buffer overflow (enlarging a variable value beyond an application's ability to store it).
  • Leverage Alternate Encoding
    This attack leverages the possibility to encode potentially harmful input and submit it to applications not expecting or effective at validating this encoding standard making input filtering difficult.
  • Fuzzing
    Fuzzing is a software testing method that feeds randomly constructed input to the system and looks for an indication that a failure in response to that input has occurred. Fuzzing treats the system as a black box and is totally free from any preconceptions or assumptions about the system. An attacker can leverage fuzzing to try to identify weaknesses in the system. For instance fuzzing can help an attacker discover certain assumptions made in the system about user input. Fuzzing gives an attacker a quick way of potentially uncovering some of these assumptions without really knowing anything about the internals of the system. These assumptions can then be turned against the system by specially crafting user input that may allow an attacker to achieve his goals.
  • Using Leading 'Ghost' Character Sequences to Bypass Input Filters
    An attacker intentionally introduces leading characters that enable getting the input past the filters. The API that is being targeted, ignores the leading "ghost" characters, and therefore processes the attackers' input. This occurs when the targeted API will accept input data in several syntactic forms and interpret it in the equivalent semantic way, while the filter does not take into account the full spectrum of the syntactic forms acceptable to the targeted API. Some APIs will strip certain leading characters from a string of parameters. Perhaps these characters are considered redundant, and for this reason they are removed. Another possibility is the parser logic at the beginning of analysis is specialized in some way that causes some characters to be removed. The attacker can specify multiple types of alternative encodings at the beginning of a string as a set of probes. One commonly used possibility involves adding ghost characters--extra characters that don't affect the validity of the request at the API layer. If the attacker has access to the API libraries being targeted, certain attack ideas can be tested directly in advance. Once alternative ghost encodings emerge through testing, the attacker can move from lab-based API testing to testing real-world service implementations.
  • Accessing/Intercepting/Modifying HTTP Cookies
    This attack relies on the use of HTTP Cookies to store credentials, state information and other critical data on client systems. The first form of this attack involves accessing HTTP Cookies to mine for potentially sensitive data contained therein. The second form of this attack involves intercepting this data as it is transmitted from client to server. This intercepted information is then used by the attacker to impersonate the remote user/session. The third form is when the cookie's content is modified by the attacker before it is sent back to the server. Here the attacker seeks to convince the target server to operate on this falsified information.
  • Embedding Scripts in HTTP Query Strings
    A variant of cross-site scripting called "reflected" cross-site scripting, the HTTP Query Strings attack consists of passing a malicious script inside an otherwise valid HTTP request query string. This is of significant concern for sites that rely on dynamic, user-generated content such as bulletin boards, news sites, blogs, and web enabled administration GUIs. The malicious script may steal session data, browse history, probe files, or otherwise execute attacks on the client side. Once the attacker has prepared the malicious HTTP query it is sent to a victim user (perhaps by email, IM, or posted on an online forum), who clicks on a normal looking link that contains a poison query string. This technique can be made more effective through the use of services like http://tinyurl.com/, which makes very small URLs that will redirect to very large, complex ones. The victim will not know what he is really clicking on.
  • 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.
  • Exploiting Multiple Input Interpretation Layers
    An attacker supplies the target software with input data that contains sequences of special characters designed to bypass input validation logic. This exploit relies on the target making multiples passes over the input data and processing a "layer" of special characters with each pass. In this manner, the attacker can disguise input that would otherwise be rejected as invalid by concealing it with layers of special/escape characters that are stripped off by subsequent processing steps. The goal is to first discover cases where the input validation layer executes before one or more parsing layers. That is, user input may go through the following logic in an application: In such cases, the attacker will need to provide input that will pass through the input validator, but after passing through parser2, will be converted into something that the input validator was supposed to stop.
  • 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.
  • Signature Spoof
    An attacker generates a message or datablock that causes the recipient to believe that the message or datablock was generated and cryptographically signed by an authoritative or reputable source, misleading a victim or victim operating system into performing malicious actions.
  • XML Client-Side Attack
    Client applications such as web browsers that process HTML data often need to transform data in and out of the XML format by using an XML parser. It may be possible for an attacker to inject data that may have an adverse effect on the XML parser when it is being processed. These adverse effects may include the parser crashing, consuming too much of a resource, executing too slowly, executing code supplied by an attacker, allowing usage of unintended system functionality, etc. An attacker's goal is to leverage parser failure to his or her advantage. In some cases it may be possible to jump from the data plane to the control plane via bad data being passed to an XML parser. [R.484.1]
  • Embedding NULL Bytes
    An attacker embeds one or more null bytes in input to the target software. This attack relies on the usage of a null-valued byte as a string terminator in many environments. The goal is for certain components of the target software to stop processing the input when it encounters the null byte(s).
  • Postfix, Null Terminate, and Backslash
    If a string is passed through a filter of some kind, then a terminal NULL may not be valid. Using alternate representation of NULL allows an attacker to embed the NULL mid-string while postfixing the proper data so that the filter is avoided. One example is a filter that looks for a trailing slash character. If a string insertion is possible, but the slash must exist, an alternate encoding of NULL in mid-string may be used.
  • Simple Script Injection
    An attacker embeds malicious scripts in content that will be served to web browsers. The goal of the attack is for the target software, the client-side browser, to execute the script with the users' privilege level. An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities that are brought on by allowing remote hosts to execute code and scripts. Web browsers, for example, have some simple security controls in place, but if a remote attacker is allowed to execute scripts (through injecting them in to user-generated content like bulletin boards) then these controls may be bypassed. Further, these attacks are very difficult for an end user to detect.
  • Using Slashes and URL Encoding Combined to Bypass Validation Logic
    This attack targets the encoding of the URL combined with the encoding of the slash characters. An attacker can take advantage of the multiple way of encoding an URL and abuse the interpretation of the URL. An URL may contain special character that need special syntax handling in order to be interpreted. Special characters are represented using a percentage character followed by two digits representing the octet code of the original character (%HEX-CODE). For instance US-ASCII space character would be represented with %20. This is often referred as escaped ending or percent-encoding. Since the server decodes the URL from the requests, it may restrict the access to some URL paths by validating and filtering out the URL requests it received. An attacker will try to craft an URL with a sequence of special characters which once interpreted by the server will be equivalent to a forbidden URL. It can be difficult to protect against this attack since the URL can contain other format of encoding such as UTF-8 encoding, Unicode-encoding, etc.
  • SQL Injection
    This attack exploits target software that constructs SQL statements based on user input. An attacker crafts input strings so that when the target software constructs SQL statements based on the input, the resulting SQL statement performs actions other than those the application intended. SQL Injection results from failure of the application to appropriately validate input. When specially crafted user-controlled input consisting of SQL syntax is used without proper validation as part of SQL queries, it is possible to glean information from the database in ways not envisaged during application design. Depending upon the database and the design of the application, it may also be possible to leverage injection to have the database execute system-related commands of the attackers' choice. SQL Injection enables an attacker to talk directly to the database, thus bypassing the application completely. Successful injection can cause information disclosure as well as ability to add or modify data in the database. In order to successfully inject SQL and retrieve information from a database, an attacker:
  • String Format Overflow in syslog()
    This attack targets the format string vulnerabilities in the syslog() function. An attacker would typically inject malicious input in the format string parameter of the syslog function. This is a common problem, and many public vulnerabilities and associated exploits have been posted.
  • Blind SQL Injection
    Blind SQL Injection results from an insufficient mitigation for SQL Injection. Although suppressing database error messages are considered best practice, the suppression alone is not sufficient to prevent SQL Injection. Blind SQL Injection is a form of SQL Injection that overcomes the lack of error messages. Without the error messages that facilitate SQL Injection, the attacker constructs input strings that probe the target through simple Boolean SQL expressions. The attacker can determine if the syntax and structure of the injection was successful based on whether the query was executed or not. Applied iteratively, the attacker determines how and where the target is vulnerable to SQL Injection. For example, an attacker may try entering something like "username' AND 1=1; --" in an input field. If the result is the same as when the attacker entered "username" in the field, then the attacker knows that the application is vulnerable to SQL Injection. The attacker can then ask yes/no questions from the database server to extract information from it. For example, the attacker can extract table names from a database using the following types of queries: If the above query executes properly, then the attacker knows that the first character in a table name in the database is a letter between m and z. If it doesn't, then the attacker knows that the character must be between a and l (assuming of course that table names only contain alphabetic characters). By performing a binary search on all character positions, the attacker can determine all table names in the database. Subsequently, the attacker may execute an actual attack and send something like:
  • Using Unicode Encoding to Bypass Validation Logic
    An attacker may provide a Unicode string to a system component that is not Unicode aware and use that to circumvent the filter or cause the classifying mechanism to fail to properly understanding the request. That may allow the attacker to slip malicious data past the content filter and/or possibly cause the application to route the request incorrectly.
  • URL Encoding
    This attack targets the encoding of the URL. An attacker can take advantage of the multiple way of encoding an URL and abuse the interpretation of the URL. An URL may contain special character that need special syntax handling in order to be interpreted. Special characters are represented using a percentage character followed by two digits representing the octet code of the original character (%HEX-CODE). For instance US-ASCII space character would be represented with %20. This is often referred as escaped ending or percent-encoding. Since the server decodes the URL from the requests, it may restrict the access to some URL paths by validating and filtering out the URL requests it received. An attacker will try to craft an URL with a sequence of special characters which once interpreted by the server will be equivalent to a forbidden URL. It can be difficult to protect against this attack since the URL can contain other format of encoding such as UTF-8 encoding, Unicode-encoding, etc. The attacker could also subvert the meaning of the URL string request by encoding the data being sent to the server through a GET request. For instance an attacker may subvert the meaning of parameters used in a SQL request and sent through the URL string (See Example section).
  • User-Controlled Filename
    An attack of this type involves an attacker inserting malicious characters (such as a XSS redirection) into a filename, directly or indirectly that is then used by the target software to generate HTML text or other potentially executable content. Many websites rely on user-generated content and dynamically build resources like files, filenames, and URL links directly from user supplied data. In this attack pattern, the attacker uploads code that can execute in the client browser and/or redirect the client browser to a site that the attacker owns. All XSS attack payload variants can be used to pass and exploit these vulnerabilities.
  • Using Escaped Slashes in Alternate Encoding
    This attack targets the use of the backslash in alternate encoding. An attacker can provide a backslash as a leading character and causes a parser to believe that the next character is special. This is called an escape. By using that trick, the attacker tries to exploit alternate ways to encode the same character which leads to filter problems and opens avenues to attack.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Using UTF-8 Encoding to Bypass Validation Logic
    This attack is a specific variation on leveraging alternate encodings to bypass validation logic. This attack leverages the possibility to encode potentially harmful input in UTF-8 and submit it to applications not expecting or effective at validating this encoding standard making input filtering difficult. UTF-8 (8-bit UCS/Unicode Transformation Format) is a variable-length character encoding for Unicode. Legal UTF-8 characters are one to four bytes long. However, early version of the UTF-8 specification got some entries wrong (in some cases it permitted overlong characters). UTF-8 encoders are supposed to use the "shortest possible" encoding, but naive decoders may accept encodings that are longer than necessary. According to the RFC 3629, a particularly subtle form of this attack can be carried out against a parser which performs security-critical validity checks against the UTF-8 encoded form of its input, but interprets certain illegal octet sequences as characters.
  • Web Logs Tampering
    Web Logs Tampering attacks involve an attacker injecting, deleting or otherwise tampering with the contents of web logs typically for the purposes of masking other malicious behavior. Additionally, writing malicious data to log files may target jobs, filters, reports, and other agents that process the logs in an asynchronous attack pattern. This pattern of attack is similar to "Log Injection-Tampering-Forging" except that in this case, the attack is targeting the logs of the web server and not the application.
  • XPath Injection
    An attacker can craft special user-controllable input consisting of XPath expressions to inject the XML database and bypass authentication or glean information that he normally would not be able to. XPath Injection enables an attacker to talk directly to the XML database, thus bypassing the application completely. XPath Injection results from the failure of an application to properly sanitize input used as part of dynamic XPath expressions used to query an XML database. In order to successfully inject XML and retrieve information from a database, an attacker:
  • AJAX Fingerprinting
    This attack utilizes the frequent client-server roundtrips in Ajax conversation to scan a system. While Ajax does not open up new vulnerabilities per se, it does optimize them from an attacker point of view. In many XSS attacks the attacker must get a "hole in one" and successfully exploit the vulnerability on the victim side the first time, once the client is redirected the attacker has many chances to engage in follow on probes, but there is only one first chance. In a widely used web application this is not a major problem because 1 in a 1,000 is good enough in a widely used application. A common first step for an attacker is to footprint the environment to understand what attacks will work. Since footprinting relies on enumeration, the conversational pattern of rapid, multiple requests and responses that are typical in Ajax applications enable an attacker to look for many vulnerabilities, well-known ports, network locations and so on.
  • Embedding Script (XSS) in HTTP Headers
    An attack of this type exploits web applications that generate web content, such as links in a HTML page, based on unvalidated or improperly validated data submitted by other actors. XSS in HTTP Headers attacks target the HTTP headers which are hidden from most users and may not be validated by web applications.
  • OS Command Injection
    In this type of an attack, an adversary injects operating system commands into existing application functions. An application that uses untrusted input to build command strings is vulnerable. An adversary can leverage OS command injection in an application to elevate privileges, execute arbitrary commands and compromise the underlying operating system.
  • 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.
  • XSS in IMG Tags
    Image tags are an often overlooked, but convenient, means for a Cross Site Scripting attack. The attacker can inject script contents into an image (IMG) tag in order to steal information from a victim's browser and execute malicious scripts.
  • XML Parser Attack
    Applications often need to transform data in and out of the XML format by using an XML parser. It may be possible for an attacker to inject data that may have an adverse effect on the XML parser when it is being processed. These adverse effects may include the parser crashing, consuming too much of a resource, executing too slowly, executing code supplied by an attacker, allowing usage of unintended system functionality, etc. An attacker's goal is to leverage parser failure to his or her advantage. In some cases it may be possible to jump from the data plane to the control plane via bad data being passed to an XML parser. [R.99.1]

    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2010-0019.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues 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. This update fixes the following security issues : * a flaw was found in the IPv6 Extension Header (EH) handling implementation in the Linux kernel. The skb->dst data structure was not properly validated in the ipv6_hop_jumbo() function. This could possibly lead to a remote denial of service. (CVE-2007-4567, Important) * a flaw was found in each of the following Intel PRO/1000 Linux drivers in the Linux kernel: e1000 and e1000e. A remote attacker using packets larger than the MTU could bypass the existing fragment check, resulting in partial, invalid frames being passed to the network stack. These flaws could also possibly be used to trigger a remote denial of service. (CVE-2009-4536, CVE-2009-4538, Important) * a flaw was found in the Realtek r8169 Ethernet driver in the Linux kernel. Receiving overly-long frames with network cards supported by this driver could possibly result in a remote denial of service. (CVE-2009-4537, Important) Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

CVE-2010-2226: The xfs_swapext function in fs/xfs/xfs_dfrag.c in the Linux kernel did not properly check the file descriptors passed to the SWAPEXT ioctl, which allowed local users to leverage write access and obtain read access by swapping one file into another file. CVE-2010-2946: The 'os2' xattr namespace on the jfs filesystem could be used to bypass xattr namespace rules. CVE-2010-2959: Integer overflow in net/can/bcm.c in the Controller Area Network (CAN) implementation in the Linux kernel allowed attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (system crash) via crafted CAN traffic. CVE-2010-3015: Integer overflow in the ext4_ext_get_blocks function in fs/ext4/extents.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (BUG and system crash) via a write operation on the last block of a large file, followed by a sync operation. CVE-2010-2492: Buffer overflow in the ecryptfs_uid_hash macro in fs/ecryptfs/messaging.c in the eCryptfs subsystem in the Linux kernel might have allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (system crash) via unspecified vectors. CVE-2010-2248: fs/cifs/cifssmb.c in the CIFS implementation in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) via an SMB response packet with an invalid CountHigh value, as demonstrated by a response from an OS/2 server, related to the CIFSSMBWrite and CIFSSMBWrite2 functions. CVE-2010-2803: The drm_ioctl function in drivers/gpu/drm/drm_drv.c in the Direct Rendering Manager (DRM) subsystem in the Linux kernel allowed local users to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel memory by requesting a large memory-allocation amount. CVE-2010-2478: A potential buffer overflow in the ETHTOOL_GRXCLSRLALL ethtool code was fixed which could be used by local attackers to crash the kernel or potentially execute code. CVE-2010-2524: The DNS resolution functionality in the CIFS implementation in the Linux kernel, when CONFIG_CIFS_DFS_UPCALL is enabled, relies on a user's keyring for the dns_resolver upcall in the cifs.upcall userspace helper, which allowed local users to spoof the results of DNS queries and perform arbitrary CIFS mounts via vectors involving an add_key call, related to a 'cache stuffing' issue and MS-DFS referrals. CVE-2010-2798: The gfs2_dirent_find_space function in fs/gfs2/dir.c in the Linux kernel used an incorrect size value in calculations associated with sentinel directory entries, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and panic) and possibly have unspecified other impact by renaming a file in a GFS2 filesystem, related to the gfs2_rename function in fs/gfs2/ops_inode.c. CVE-2010-2537: The BTRFS_IOC_CLONE and BTRFS_IOC_CLONE_RANGE ioctls allowed a local user to overwrite append-only files. CVE-2010-2538: The BTRFS_IOC_CLONE_RANGE ioctl was subject to an integer overflow in specifying offsets to copy from a file, which potentially allowed a local user to read sensitive filesystem data. CVE-2010-2521: Multiple buffer overflows in fs/nfsd/nfs4xdr.c in the XDR implementation in the NFS server in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted NFSv4 compound WRITE request, related to the read_buf and nfsd4_decode_compound functions. CVE-2010-2066: The mext_check_arguments function in fs/ext4/move_extent.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to overwrite an append-only file via a MOVE_EXT ioctl call that specifies this file as a donor. CVE-2010-2495: The pppol2tp_xmit function in drivers/net/pppol2tp.c in the L2TP implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly validate certain values associated with an interface, which allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) or possibly have unspecified other impact via vectors related to a routing change. CVE-2010-2071: The btrfs_xattr_set_acl function in fs/btrfs/acl.c in btrfs in the Linux kernel did not check file ownership before setting an ACL, which allowed local users to bypass file permissions by setting arbitrary ACLs, as demonstrated using setfacl. CVE-2010-1641: The do_gfs2_set_flags function in fs/gfs2/file.c in the Linux kernel did not verify the ownership of a file, which allowed local users to bypass intended access restrictions via a SETFLAGS ioctl request. CVE-2010-1087: The nfs_wait_on_request function in fs/nfs/pagelist.c in Linux kernel 2.6.x allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (Oops) via unknown vectors related to truncating a file and an operation that is not interruptible. CVE-2010-1636: The btrfs_ioctl_clone function in fs/btrfs/ioctl.c in the btrfs functionality in the Linux kernel did not ensure that a cloned file descriptor has been opened for reading, which allowed local users to read sensitive information from a write-only file descriptor. CVE-2010-1437: Race condition in the find_keyring_by_name function in security/keys/keyring.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via keyctl session commands that trigger access to a dead keyring that is undergoing deletion by the key_cleanup function. CVE-2010-1148: The cifs_create function in fs/cifs/dir.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a NULL nameidata (aka nd) field in a POSIX file-creation request to a server that supports UNIX extensions. CVE-2010-1162: The release_one_tty function in drivers/char/tty_io.c in the Linux kernel omitted certain required calls to the put_pid function, which has unspecified impact and local attack vectors. CVE-2010-1146: The Linux kernel, when a ReiserFS filesystem exists, did not restrict read or write access to the .reiserfs_priv directory, which allowed local users to gain privileges by modifying (1) extended attributes or (2) ACLs, as demonstrated by deleting a file under .reiserfs_priv/xattrs/. CVE-2009-4537: drivers/net/r8169.c in the r8169 driver in the Linux kernel did not properly check the size of an Ethernet frame that exceeds the MTU, which allowed remote attackers to (1) cause a denial of service (temporary network outage) via a packet with a crafted size, in conjunction with certain packets containing A characters and certain packets containing E characters; or (2) cause a denial of service (system crash) via a packet with a crafted size, in conjunction with certain packets containing '\0' characters, related to the value of the status register and erroneous behavior associated with the RxMaxSize register.

  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE9_12636.NASL
    description This update fixes various security issues and some bugs in the SUSE Linux Enterprise 9 kernel. The following security issues were fixed : - A crafted NFS write request might have caused a buffer overwrite, potentially causing a kernel crash. (CVE-2010-2521) - The x86_64 copy_to_user implementation might have leaked kernel memory depending on specific user buffer setups. (CVE-2008-0598) - drivers/net/r8169.c in the r8169 driver in the Linux kernel did not properly check the size of an Ethernet frame that exceeds the MTU, which allows remote attackers to (1) cause a denial of service (temporary network outage) via a packet with a crafted size, in conjunction with certain packets containing A characters and certain packets containing E characters; or (2) cause a denial of service (system crash) via a packet with a crafted size, in conjunction with certain packets containing '\0' characters, related to the value of the status register and erroneous behavior associated with the RxMaxSize register. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incorrect fix for CVE-2009-1389. (CVE-2009-4537) - Use-after-free vulnerability in net/ipv4/tcp_input.c in the Linux kernel 2.6 when IPV6_RECVPKTINFO is set on a listening socket, allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (kernel panic) via a SYN packet while the socket is in a listening (TCP_LISTEN) state, which is not properly handled causes the skb structure to be freed. (CVE-2010-1188) - The (1) real_lookup and (2) __lookup_hash functions in fs/namei.c in the vfs implementation in the Linux kernel did not prevent creation of a child dentry for a deleted (aka S_DEAD) directory, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service ('overflow' of the UBIFS orphan area) via a series of attempted file creations within deleted directories. (CVE-2008-3275) - The nfs_lock function in fs/nfs/file.c in the Linux kernel did not properly remove POSIX locks on files that are setgid without group-execute permission, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (BUG and system crash) by locking a file on an NFS filesystem and then changing this files permissions, a related issue to CVE-2010-0727. (CVE-2007-6733) - The do_coredump function in fs/exec.c in Linux kernel did not change the UID of a core dump file if it exists before a root process creates a core dump in the same location, which might have allowed local users to obtain sensitive information. (CVE-2007-6206) - fs/namei.c in the Linux kernel did not always follow NFS automount 'symlinks,' which allowed attackers to have an unknown impact, related to LOOKUP_FOLLOW. (CVE-2010-1088) - Stack-based buffer overflow in the hfs subsystem in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to have an unspecified impact via a crafted Hierarchical File System (HFS) filesystem, related to the hfs_readdir function in fs/hfs/dir.c. (CVE-2009-4020) - The processcompl_compat function in drivers/usb/core/devio.c in Linux kernel did not clear the transfer buffer before returning to userspace when a USB command fails, which might have made it easier for physically proximate attackers to obtain sensitive information (kernel memory).

    description CVE-2009-3889 CVE-2009-3939 kernel: megaraid_sas permissions in sysfs CVE-2009-3080 kernel: gdth: Prevent negative offsets in ioctl CVE-2009-4005 kernel: isdn: hfc_usb: fix read buffer overflow CVE-2009-4020 kernel: hfs buffer overflow This update fixes the following security issues : - an array index error was found in the gdth driver in the Linux kernel. A local user could send a specially crafted IOCTL request that would cause a denial of service or, possibly, privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-3080, Important) - a flaw was found in the collect_rx_frame() function in the HiSax ISDN driver (hfc_usb) in the Linux kernel. An attacker could use this flaw to send a specially crafted HDLC packet that could trigger a buffer out of bounds, possibly resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2009-4005, Important) - permission issues were found in the megaraid_sas driver (for SAS based RAID controllers) in the Linux kernel. The 'dbg_lvl' and 'poll_mode_io' files on the sysfs file system ('/sys/') had world-writable permissions. This could allow local, unprivileged users to change the behavior of the driver. (CVE-2009-3889, CVE-2009-3939, Moderate) - a buffer overflow flaw was found in the hfs_bnode_read() function in the HFS file system implementation in the Linux kernel. This could lead to a denial of service if a user browsed a specially crafted HFS file system, for example, by running 'ls'. (CVE-2009-4020, Low) This update also fixes the following bugs : - if a process was using ptrace() to trace a multi-threaded process, and that multi-threaded process dumped its core, the process performing the trace could hang in wait4(). This issue could be triggered by running 'strace -f' on a multi-threaded process that was dumping its core, resulting in the strace command hanging. (BZ#555869) - a bug in the ptrace() implementation could have, in some cases, caused ptrace_detach() to create a zombie process if the process being traced was terminated with a SIGKILL signal. (BZ#555869) - the kernel-2.6.9-89.0.19.EL update resolved an issue (CVE-2009-4537) in the Realtek r8169 Ethernet driver. This update implements a better solution for that issue. Note: This is not a security regression. The original fix was complete. This update is adding the official upstream fix. (BZ#556406) The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2007-4567, CVE-2009-4536, CVE-2009-4537, CVE-2009-4538 to the security issues fixed in kernel 2.6.18-164.10.1 The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2006-6304, CVE-2009-2910, CVE-2009-3080, CVE-2009-3556, CVE-2009-3889, CVE-2009-3939, CVE-2009-4020, CVE-2009-4021, CVE-2009-4138, CVE-2009-4141, and CVE-2009-4272 to the security issues fixed in kernel 2.6.18-164.11.1. b. ESXi userworld update for ntp The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used to synchronize the time of a computer client or server to another server or reference time source. A vulnerability in ntpd could allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service (CPU and bandwidth consumption) by using MODE_PRIVATE to send a spoofed (1) request or (2) response packet that triggers a continuous exchange of MODE_PRIVATE error responses between two NTP daemons. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-3563 to this issue. c. Service Console package openssl updated to 0.9.8e-12.el5_4.1 OpenSSL is a toolkit implementing SSL v2/v3 and TLS protocols with full-strength cryptography world-wide. A memory leak in the zlib could allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via vectors that trigger incorrect calls to the CRYPTO_cleanup_all_ex_data function. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-4355 to this issue. A vulnerability was discovered which may allow remote attackers to spoof certificates by using MD2 design flaws to generate a hash collision in less than brute-force time. NOTE: the scope of this issue is currently limited because the amount of computation required is still large. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-2409 to this issue. This update also includes security fixes that were first addressed in version openssl-0.9.8e-12.el5.i386.rpm. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-0590, CVE-2009-1377, CVE-2009-1378, CVE-2009-1379, CVE-2009-1386 and CVE-2009-1387 to these issues. d. Service Console update for krb5 to 1.6.1-36.el5_4.1 and pam_krb5 to 2.2.14-15. Kerberos is a network authentication protocol. It is designed to provide strong authentication for client/server applications by using secret-key cryptography. Multiple integer underflows in the AES and RC4 functionality in the crypto library could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code by providing ciphertext with a length that is too short to be valid. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-4212 to this issue. The service console package for pam_krb5 is updated to version pam_krb5-2.2.14-15. This update fixes a flaw found in pam_krb5. In some non-default configurations (specifically, where pam_krb5 would be the first module to prompt for a password), a remote attacker could use this flaw to recognize valid usernames, which would aid a dictionary-based password guess attack. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-1384 to this issue. e. Service Console package bind updated to 9.3.6-4.P1.el5_4.2 BIND (Berkeley Internet Name Daemon) is by far the most widely used Domain Name System (DNS) software on the Internet. A vulnerability was discovered which could allow remote attacker to add the Authenticated Data (AD) flag to a forged NXDOMAIN response for an existing domain. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-0097 to this issue. A vulnerability was discovered which could allow remote attackers to conduct DNS cache poisoning attacks by receiving a recursive client query and sending a response that contains CNAME or DNAME records, which do not have the intended validation before caching. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-0290 to this issue. A vulnerability was found in the way that bind handles out-of- bailiwick data accompanying a secure response without re-fetching from the original source, which could allow remote attackers to have an unspecified impact via a crafted response. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-0382 to this issue. NOTE: ESX does not use the BIND name service daemon by default. f. Service Console package gcc updated to 3.2.3-60 The GNU Compiler Collection includes front ends for C, C++, Objective-C, Fortran, Java, and Ada, as well as libraries for these languages GNU Libtool's ltdl.c attempts to open .la library files in the current working directory. This could allow a local user to gain privileges via a Trojan horse file. The GNU C Compiler collection (gcc) provided in ESX contains a statically linked version of the vulnerable code, and is being replaced. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-3736 to this issue. g. Service Console package gzip update to 1.3.3-15.rhel3 gzip is a software application used for file compression An integer underflow in gzip's unlzw function on 64-bit platforms may allow a remote attacker to trigger an array index error leading to a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted LZW compressed file. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-0001 to this issue. h. Service Console package sudo updated to 1.6.9p17-6.el5_4 Sudo (su 'do') allows a system administrator to delegate authority to give certain users (or groups of users) the ability to run some (or all) commands as root or another user while providing an audit trail of the commands and their arguments. When a pseudo-command is enabled, sudo permits a match between the name of the pseudo-command and the name of an executable file in an arbitrary directory, which allows local users to gain privileges via a crafted executable file. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-0426 to this issue. When the runas_default option is used, sudo does not properly set group memberships, which allows local users to gain privileges via a sudo command. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-0427 to this issue.

The skb->dst data structure was not properly validated in the ipv6_hop_jumbo() function. This could possibly lead to a remote denial of service. (CVE-2007-4567, Important) - a flaw was found in each of the following Intel PRO/1000 Linux drivers in the Linux kernel: e1000 and e1000e. A remote attacker using packets larger than the MTU could bypass the existing fragment check, resulting in partial, invalid frames being passed to the network stack. These flaws could also possibly be used to trigger a remote denial of service. (CVE-2009-4536, CVE-2009-4538, Important) - a flaw was found in the Realtek r8169 Ethernet driver in the Linux kernel. Receiving overly-long frames with network cards supported by this driver could possibly result in a remote denial of service. (CVE-2009-4537, Important) The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect. Note1: Due to the fuse kernel module now being part of the kernel, we are updating fuse on the older releases to match the fuse that was released by The Upstream Vendor. Note2: xfs is now part of the kernel in x86_64. Because of this there is no kernel-module-xfs for x86_64. Note3: ipw3945 support has been changed to iwlwifi3945 in SL 54, and is in the kernel. Because of this there is no kernel-module-ipw3945 for SL54. Note4: Support for the Atheros chipset in now in the kernel. We are not sure if the infrastructure is in place for SL 50-53, so we are still providing the madwifi kernel modules for SL 50-53.

    NASL id SUSE_11_KERNEL-100709.NASL
    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 kernel was updated to 2.6.27.48, fixing various bugs and security issues : - The do_gfs2_set_flags() function in fs/gfs2/file.c of the Linux kernel does not verify the ownership of a file, which allows local users to bypass intended access restrictions via a SETFLAGS ioctl request. (CVE-2010-1641) - The nfs_wait_on_request() function in fs/nfs/pagelist.c of the Linux kernel allows attackers to cause a denial of service (Oops) via unknown vectors related to truncating a file and an operation that is not interruptible. (CVE-2010-1087) - When strict overcommit is enabled, mm/shmem.c does not properly handle the export of shmemfs objects by knfsd, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and knfsd crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors. (CVE-2010-1643) - A race condition in the find_keyring_by_name() function in security/keys/keyring.c of the Linux kernel allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via keyctl session commands that trigger access to a dead keyring that is undergoing deletion by the key_cleanup() function. (CVE-2010-1437) - arch/1/mm/fsl_booke_mmu.c in KGDB in the Linux kernel, when running on PowerPC, does not properly perform a security check for access to a kernel page, which allows local users to overwrite arbitrary kernel memory. (CVE-2010-1446) - The release_one_tty() function in drivers/char/tty_io.c of the Linux kernel omits certain required calls to the put_pid() function, which has an unspecified impact and local attack vectors. (CVE-2010-1162) - The r8169 driver of the Linux kernel does not properly check the size of an Ethernet frame that exceeds the MTU, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (temporary network outage) via a packet with a crafted size, in conjunction with certain packets containing A characters and certain packets containing E characters; or cause a denial of service (system crash) via a packet with a crafted size, in conjunction with certain packets containing '0' characters, related to the value of the status register and erroneous behavior associated with the RxMaxSize register. This vulnerability exists due to an incorrect fix for CVE-2009-1389. (CVE-2009-4537) For a list of non-security related fixes please refer to the kernel RPM changelog.

    NASL id SUSE_11_1_KERNEL-100709.NASL
    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 Kernel was updated to 2.6.27.48 fixing various bugs and security issues. CVE-2010-1641: The do_gfs2_set_flags function in fs/gfs2/file.c in the Linux kernel does not verify the ownership of a file, which allows local users to bypass intended access restrictions via a SETFLAGS ioctl request. CVE-2010-1087: The nfs_wait_on_request function in fs/nfs/pagelist.c in the Linux kernel allows attackers to cause a denial of service (Oops) via unknown vectors related to truncating a file and an operation that is not interruptible. CVE-2010-1643: mm/shmem.c in the Linux kernel, when strict overcommit is enabled, does not properly handle the export of shmemfs objects by knfsd, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and knfsd crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors. CVE-2010-1437: Race condition in the find_keyring_by_name function in security/keys/keyring.c in the Linux kernel allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via keyctl session commands that trigger access to a dead keyring that is undergoing deletion by the key_cleanup function. CVE-2010-1446: arch/powerpc/mm/fsl_booke_mmu.c in KGDB in the Linux kernel, when running on PowerPC, does not properly perform a security check for access to a kernel page, which allows local users to overwrite arbitrary kernel memory, related to Fsl booke. CVE-2010-1162: The release_one_tty function in drivers/char/tty_io.c in the Linux kernel omits certain required calls to the put_pid function, which has unspecified impact and local attack vectors. CVE-2009-4537: drivers/net/r8169.c in the r8169 driver in the Linux kernel does not properly check the size of an Ethernet frame that exceeds the MTU, which allows remote attackers to (1) cause a denial of service (temporary network outage) via a packet with a crafted size, in conjunction with certain packets containing A characters and certain packets containing E characters; or (2) cause a denial of service (system crash) via a packet with a crafted size, in conjunction with certain packets containing '\0' characters, related to the value of the status register and erroneous behavior associated with the RxMaxSize register. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incorrect fix for CVE-2009-1389.

    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2010-0079.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 Extended Update Support. 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. This update fixes the following security issues : * a flaw was found in the IPv6 Extension Header (EH) handling implementation in the Linux kernel. The skb->dst data structure was not properly validated in the ipv6_hop_jumbo() function. This could possibly lead to a remote denial of service. (CVE-2007-4567, Important) * 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) * memory leaks were found on some error paths in the icmp_send() function in the Linux kernel. This could, potentially, cause the network connectivity to cease. (CVE-2009-0778, Important) * a deficiency was found in the Linux kernel system call auditing implementation on 64-bit systems. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to circumvent a system call audit configuration, if that configuration filtered based on the 'syscall' number or arguments. (CVE-2009-0834, Important) * a flaw was found in the Intel PRO/1000 Linux driver (e1000) 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) * 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) * a flaw was found in each of the following Intel PRO/1000 Linux drivers in the Linux kernel: e1000 and e1000e. A remote attacker using packets larger than the MTU could bypass the existing fragment check, resulting in partial, invalid frames being passed to the network stack. These flaws could also possibly be used to trigger a remote denial of service. (CVE-2009-4536, CVE-2009-4538, Important) * a flaw was found in the Realtek r8169 Ethernet driver in the Linux kernel. Receiving overly-long frames with a certain revision of the network cards supported by this driver could possibly result in a remote denial of service. (CVE-2009-4537, Important) Note: This update also fixes several bugs. Documentation for these bug fixes will be available shortly from www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/errata/RHSA-2010-0079/Kernel_Security_Update / index.html Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

    description This update fixes a several security issues and various bugs in the SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP 2 kernel. The bugs fixed include a serious data corruption regression in NFS. The following security issues were fixed : - drivers/net/r8169.c in the r8169 driver in the Linux kernel does not properly check the size of an Ethernet frame that exceeds the MTU, which allows remote attackers to (1) cause a denial of service (temporary network outage) via a packet with a crafted size, in conjunction with certain packets containing A characters and certain packets containing E characters; or (2) cause a denial of service (system crash) via a packet with a crafted size, in conjunction with certain packets containing '0' characters, related to the value of the status register and erroneous behavior associated with the RxMaxSize register. (CVE-2009-4537) - The ULE decapsulation functionality in drivers/media/dvb/dvb-core/dvb_net.c in dvb-core in the Linux kernel arlier allows attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a crafted MPEG2-TS frame, related to an invalid Payload Pointer ULE. (CVE-2010-1086) - fs/namei.c in Linux kernel does not always follow NFS automount 'symlinks,' which allows attackers to have an unknown impact, related to LOOKUP_FOLLOW. (CVE-2010-1088) - Stack-based buffer overflow in the hfs subsystem in the Linux kernel allows remote attackers to have an unspecified impact via a crafted Hierarchical File System (HFS) filesystem, related to the hfs_readdir function in fs/hfs/dir.c. (CVE-2009-4020) - The processcompl_compat function in drivers/usb/core/devio.c in the Linux kernel does not clear the transfer buffer before returning to userspace when a USB command fails, which might make it easier for physically proximate attackers to obtain sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2010-1083) - drivers/connector/connector.c in the Linux kernel allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory consumption and system crash) by sending the kernel many NETLINK_CONNECTOR messages.
