ID CVE-2010-1423
Summary Argument injection vulnerability in the URI handler in (a) Java NPAPI plugin and (b) Java Deployment Toolkit in Java 6 Update 10, 19, and other versions, when running on Windows and possibly on Linux, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via the (1) -J or (2) -XXaltjvm argument to javaws.exe, which is processed by the launch method. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third party information.

CWE CWE-78
CAPEC
  • 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.
  • Command Delimiters
    An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities that allows an attacker's commands to be concatenated onto a legitimate command with the intent of targeting other resources such as the file system or database. The system that uses a filter or a blacklist input validation, as opposed to whitelist validation is vulnerable to an attacker who predicts delimiters (or combinations of delimiters) not present in the filter or blacklist. As with other injection attacks, the attacker uses the command delimiter payload as an entry point to tunnel through the application and activate additional attacks through SQL queries, shell commands, network scanning, and so on.
  • 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.
  • Argument Injection
    An attacker changes the behavior or state of a targeted application through injecting data or command syntax through the targets use of non-validated and non-filtered arguments of exposed services or methods.
  • 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.

title Sun Java Web Start Plugin - Command Line Argument Injection (Metasploit)
metasploit via4
description This module exploits a flaw in the Web Start plugin component of Sun Java Web Start. The arguments passed to Java Web Start are not properly validated. By passing the lesser known -J option, an attacker can pass arbitrary options directly to the Java runtime. By utilizing the -XXaltjvm option, as discussed by Ruben Santamarta, an attacker can execute arbitrary code in the context of an unsuspecting browser user. This vulnerability was originally discovered independently by both Ruben Santamarta and Tavis Ormandy. Tavis reported that all versions since version 6 Update 10 "are believed to be affected by this vulnerability." In order for this module to work, it must be ran as root on a server that does not serve SMB. Additionally, the target host must have the WebClient service (WebDAV Mini-Redirector) enabled.
