ID CVE-2010-0239
Summary The TCP/IP implementation in Microsoft Windows Vista Gold, SP1, and SP2 and Server 2008 Gold and SP2, when IPv6 is enabled, does not properly perform bounds checking on ICMPv6 Router Advertisement packets, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via crafted packets, aka "ICMPv6 Router Advertisement 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 Windows host has the following vulnerabilities in its TCP/IP implementation : - Hosts with IPv6 enabled perform insufficient bounds checking when processing specially crafted ICMPv6 Router Advertisement packets. A remote attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2010-0239) - Specially crafted Encapsulating Security Payloads (ESP) are not processed properly. A remote attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2010-0240) - Hosts with IPv6 enabled perform insufficient bounds checking when processing specially crafted ICMPv6 Route Information packets. A remote attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2010-0241) - Specially crafted TCP packets with a malformed selective acknowledgment (SACK) value can cause the system to stop responding and automatically restart. A remote attacker could exploit this to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2009-0242)
