Impact:
Exploitability:
CWE CWE-264
CAPEC
  • Accessing, Modifying or Executing Executable Files
    An attack of this type exploits a system's configuration that allows an attacker to either directly access an executable file, for example through shell access; or in a possible worst case allows an attacker to upload a file and then execute it. Web servers, ftp servers, and message oriented middleware systems which have many integration points are particularly vulnerable, because both the programmers and the administrators must be in synch regarding the interfaces and the correct privileges for each interface.
  • 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.
  • Blue Boxing
    This type of attack against older telephone switches and trunks has been around for decades. A tone is sent by an adversary to impersonate a supervisor signal which has the effect of rerouting or usurping command of the line. While the US infrastructure proper may not contain widespread vulnerabilities to this type of attack, many companies are connected globally through call centers and business process outsourcing. These international systems may be operated in countries which have not upgraded Telco infrastructure and so are vulnerable to Blue boxing. Blue boxing is a result of failure on the part of the system to enforce strong authorization for administrative functions. While the infrastructure is different than standard current applications like web applications, there are historical lessons to be learned to upgrade the access control for administrative functions.
  • Restful Privilege Elevation
    Rest uses standard HTTP (Get, Put, Delete) style permissions methods, but these are not necessarily correlated generally with back end programs. Strict interpretation of HTTP get methods means that these HTTP Get services should not be used to delete information on the server, but there is no access control mechanism to back up this logic. This means that unless the services are properly ACL'd and the application's service implementation are following these guidelines then an HTTP request can easily execute a delete or update on the server side. The attacker identifies a HTTP Get URL such as http://victimsite/updateOrder, which calls out to a program to update orders on a database or other resource. The URL is not idempotent so the request can be submitted multiple times by the attacker, additionally, the attacker may be able to exploit the URL published as a Get method that actually performs updates (instead of merely retrieving data). This may result in malicious or inadvertent altering of data on the server.
  • Target Programs with Elevated Privileges
    This attack targets programs running with elevated privileges. The attacker would try to leverage a bug in the running program and get arbitrary code to execute with elevated privileges. For instance an attacker would look for programs that write to the system directories or registry keys (such as HKLM, which stores a number of critical Windows environment variables). These programs are typically running with elevated privileges and have usually not been designed with security in mind. Such programs are excellent exploit targets because they yield lots of power when they break. The malicious user try to execute its code at the same level as a privileged system call.
  • Manipulating Input to File System Calls
    An attacker manipulates inputs to the target software which the target software passes to file system calls in the OS. The goal is to gain access to, and perhaps modify, areas of the file system that the target software did not intend to be accessible.

    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201110-22 (PostgreSQL: Multiple vulnerabilities) Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in PostgreSQL. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details. Impact : A remote authenticated attacker could send a specially crafted SQL query to a PostgreSQL server with the 'intarray' module enabled, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the PostgreSQL server process, or a Denial of Service condition. Furthermore, a remote authenticated attacker could execute arbitrary Perl code, cause a Denial of Service condition via different vectors, bypass LDAP authentication, bypass X.509 certificate validation, gain database privileges, exploit weak blowfish encryption and possibly cause other unspecified impact. Workaround : There is no known workaround at this time.

    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2010:0429 : Updated postgresql packages that fix multiple security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational database management system (DBMS). PL/Perl and PL/Tcl allow users to write PostgreSQL functions in the Perl and Tcl languages, and are installed in trusted mode by default. In trusted mode, certain operations, such as operating system level access, are restricted. A flaw was found in the way PostgreSQL enforced permission checks on scripts written in PL/Perl. If the PL/Perl procedural language was registered on a particular database, an authenticated database user running a specially crafted PL/Perl script could use this flaw to bypass intended PL/Perl trusted mode restrictions, allowing them to run arbitrary Perl scripts with the privileges of the database server. (CVE-2010-1169) Red Hat would like to thank Tim Bunce for responsibly reporting the CVE-2010-1169 flaw. A flaw was found in the way PostgreSQL enforced permission checks on scripts written in PL/Tcl. If the PL/Tcl procedural language was registered on a particular database, an authenticated database user running a specially crafted PL/Tcl script could use this flaw to bypass intended PL/Tcl trusted mode restrictions, allowing them to run arbitrary Tcl scripts with the privileges of the database server. (CVE-2010-1170) A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way PostgreSQL retrieved a substring from the bit string for BIT() and BIT VARYING() SQL data types. An authenticated database user running a specially crafted SQL query could use this flaw to cause a temporary denial of service (postgres daemon crash) or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the database server. (CVE-2010-0442) An integer overflow flaw was found in the way PostgreSQL used to calculate the size of the hash table for joined relations. An authenticated database user could create a specially crafted SQL query which could cause a temporary denial of service (postgres daemon crash) or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the database server. (CVE-2010-0733) PostgreSQL improperly protected session-local state during the execution of an index function by a database superuser during the database maintenance operations. An authenticated database user could use this flaw to elevate their privileges via specially crafted index functions. (CVE-2009-4136) These packages upgrade PostgreSQL to version 8.1.21. Refer to the PostgreSQL Release Notes for a list of changes : http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.1/static/release.html All PostgreSQL users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which correct these issues. If the postgresql service is running, it will be automatically restarted after installing this update.

  • NASL family Mandriva Local Security Checks
    NASL id MANDRIVA_MDVSA-2010-103.NASL
    description Multiple vulnerabilities was discovered and corrected in postgresql : The bitsubstr function in backend/utils/adt/varbit.c in PostgreSQL 8.0.23, 8.1.11, and 8.3.8 allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) or have unspecified other impact via vectors involving a negative integer in the third argument, as demonstrated by a SELECT statement that contains a call to the substring function for a bit string, related to an overflow. (CVE-2010-0442). A flaw was found in the way the PostgreSQL server process enforced permission checks on scripts written in PL/Perl. A remote, authenticated user, running a specially crafted PL/Perl script, could use this flaw to bypass PL/Perl trusted mode restrictions, allowing them to obtain sensitive information; execute arbitrary Perl scripts; or cause a denial of service (remove protected, sensitive data) (CVE-2010-1169). The PL/Tcl implementation in PostgreSQL 7.4 before 7.4.29, 8.0 before 8.0.25, 8.1 before 8.1.21, 8.2 before 8.2.17, 8.3 before 8.3.11, 8.4 before 8.4.4, and 9.0 Beta before 9.0 Beta 2 loads Tcl code from the pltcl_modules table regardless of the table's ownership and permissions, which allows remote authenticated users, with database-creation privileges, to execute arbitrary Tcl code by creating this table and inserting a crafted Tcl script (CVE-2010-1170). PostgreSQL 7.4 before 7.4.29, 8.0 before 8.0.25, 8.1 before 8.1.21, 8.2 before 8.2.17, 8.3 before 8.3.11, and 8.4 before 8.4.4 does not properly check privileges during certain RESET ALL operations, which allows remote authenticated users to remove arbitrary parameter settings via a (1) ALTER USER or (2) ALTER DATABASE statement (CVE-2010-1975). Packages for 2008.0 and 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance Program. Please visit this link to learn more: http://store.mandriva.com/product_info.php?cPath=149&products_id=4 90 This update provides a solution to these vulnerabilities.
