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 version of Apple iTunes installed on the remote Windows host is older than 9.1. Such versions may be affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - A buffer underflow in ImageIO's handling of TIFF images may lead to an application crash or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2009-2285) - An integer overflow in the applications's handling of images with an embedded color profile may lead to an application crash or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2010-0040) - An uninitialized memory access issue in ImageIO's handling of BMP images may result in sending data from Safari's memory to a website under an attacker's control. (CVE-2010-0041) - An uninitialized memory access issue in ImageIO's handling of TIFF images may result in sending data from Safari's memory to a website under an attacker's control. (CVE-2010-0042) - A memory corruption issue in the application's handling of TIFF images may lead to an application crash or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2010-0043) - A race condition during the installation process may allow a local user modify a file that is then executed with SYSTEM privileges. (CVE-2010-0532) - A path searching issue may allow code execution if an attacker can place a specially crafted DLL in a directory and have a user open another file using iTunes in that directory.

    description The version of Safari installed on the remote Windows host is earlier than 4.0.5. It thus is potentially affected by several issues : - A buffer underflow in ImageIO's handling of TIFF images could lead to a crash or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2009-2285) - An integer overflow in the handling of images with an embedded color profile could lead to a crash or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2010-0040) - An uninitialized memory access issue in ImageIO's handling of BMP images could result in sending of data from Safari's memory to a website. (CVE-2010-0041) - An uninitialized memory access issue in ImageIO's handling of TIFF images could result in the sending of data from Safari's memory to a website. (CVE-2010-0042) - A memory corruption issue in the handling of TIFF images could lead to a crash or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2010-0043) - An implementation issue in the handling of cookies set by RSS and Atom feeds could result in a cookie being set when visiting or updating a feed even if Safari is configured to block cookies via the 'Accept Cookies' preference. (CVE-2010-0044) - An issue in Safari's handling of external URL schemes could cause a local file to be opened in response to a URL encountered on a web page, which could allow a malicious web server to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2010-0045) - A memory corruption issue in WebKit's handling of CSS format() arguments could lead to a crash or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2010-0046) - A use-after-free issue in the handling of HTML object element fallback content could lead to a crash or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2010-0047) - A use-after-free issue in WebKit's parsing of XML documents could lead to a crash or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2010-0048) - A use-after-free issue in the handling of HTML elements containing right-to-left displayed text could lead to a crash or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2010-0049) - A use-after-free issue in WebKit's handling of incorrectly nested HTML tags could lead to a crash or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2010-0050) - An implementation issue in WebKit's handling of cross- origin stylesheet requests when visiting a malicious website could result in disclosure of the content of protected resources on another website. (CVE-2010-0051) - A use-after-free issue in WebKit's handling of callbacks for HTML elements could lead to a crash or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2010-0052) - A use-after-free issue in the rendering of content with a CSS display property set to 'run-in' could lead to a crash or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2010-0053) - A use-after-free issue in WebKit's handling of HTML image elements could lead to a crash or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2010-0054)
