CWE CWE-119
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.
  • Overflow Buffers
    Buffer Overflow attacks target improper or missing bounds checking on buffer operations, typically triggered by input injected by an attacker. As a consequence, an attacker is able to write past the boundaries of allocated buffer regions in memory, causing a program crash or potentially redirection of execution as per the attackers' choice.
  • 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.
  • 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).
  • 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.
  • Overflow Binary Resource File
    An attack of this type exploits a buffer overflow vulnerability in the handling of binary resources. Binary resources may include music files like MP3, image files like JPEG files, and any other binary file. These attacks may pass unnoticed to the client machine through normal usage of files, such as a browser loading a seemingly innocent JPEG file. This can allow the attacker access to the execution stack and execute arbitrary code in the target process. This attack pattern is a variant of standard buffer overflow attacks using an unexpected vector (binary files) to wrap its attack and open up a new attack vector. The attacker is required to either directly serve the binary content to the victim, or place it in a locale like a MP3 sharing application, for the victim to download. The attacker then is notified upon the download or otherwise locates the vulnerability opened up by the buffer overflow.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    description This kernel update for the SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP3 kernel fixes several security issues and bugs. The following security issues were fixed : - A local attacker could use a Oops (kernel crash) caused by other flaws to write a 0 byte to a attacker controlled address in the kernel. This could lead to privilege escalation together with other issues. (CVE-2010-4258) - The backend driver in Xen 3.x allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service via a kernel thread leak, which prevents the device and guest OS from being shut down or create a zombie domain, causes a hang in zenwatch, or prevents unspecified xm commands from working properly, related to (1) netback, (2) blkback, or (3) blktap. (CVE-2010-3699) - The econet_sendmsg function in net/econet/af_econet.c in the Linux kernel, when an econet address is configured, allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a sendmsg call that specifies a NULL value for the remote address field. (CVE-2010-3849) - Stack-based buffer overflow in the econet_sendmsg function in net/econet/af_econet.c in the Linux kernel when an econet address is configured, allowed local users to gain privileges by providing a large number of iovec structures. (CVE-2010-3848) - The ec_dev_ioctl function in net/econet/af_econet.c in the Linux kernel did not require the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability, which allowed local users to bypass intended access restrictions and configure econet addresses via an SIOCSIFADDR ioctl call. (CVE-2010-3850) - A overflow in sendto() and recvfrom() routines was fixed that could be used by local attackers to potentially crash the kernel using some socket families like L2TP. (CVE-2010-4160)

(CVE-2010-3874) Kees Cook and Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that the shm interface did not clear kernel memory correctly. A local attacker could exploit this to read kernel stack memory, leading to a loss of privacy. (CVE-2010-4072) Dan Rosenberg discovered that IPC structures were not correctly initialized on 64bit systems. A local attacker could exploit this to read kernel stack memory, leading to a loss of privacy. (CVE-2010-4073) Dan Rosenberg discovered that the RME Hammerfall DSP audio interface driver did not correctly clear kernel memory. A local attacker could exploit this to read kernel stack memory, leading to a loss of privacy. (CVE-2010-4080, CVE-2010-4081) Dan Rosenberg discovered that the VIA video driver did not correctly clear kernel memory. A local attacker could exploit this to read kernel stack memory, leading to a loss of privacy. (CVE-2010-4082) James Bottomley discovered that the ICP vortex storage array controller driver did not validate certain sizes. A local attacker on a 64bit system could exploit this to crash the kernel, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-4157) Dan Rosenberg discovered that the socket filters did not correctly initialize structure memory. A local attacker could create malicious filters to read portions of kernel stack memory, leading to a loss of privacy. (CVE-2010-4158) Dan Rosenberg discovered that the Linux kernel L2TP implementation contained multiple integer signedness errors. A local attacker could exploit this to to crash the kernel, or possibly gain root privileges. (CVE-2010-4160) Dan Rosenberg discovered that certain iovec operations did not calculate page counts correctly. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-4162) Dan Rosenberg discovered multiple flaws in the X.25 facilities parsing. If a system was using X.25, a remote attacker could exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-4164) Steve Chen discovered that setsockopt did not correctly check MSS values. A local attacker could make a specially crafted socket call to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-4165) Dave Jones discovered that the mprotect system call did not correctly handle merged VMAs. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-4169) Dan Rosenberg discovered that the RDS protocol did not correctly check ioctl arguments. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-4175) Alan Cox discovered that the HCI UART driver did not correctly check if a write operation was available. If the mmap_min-addr sysctl was changed from the Ubuntu default to a value of 0, a local attacker could exploit this flaw to gain root privileges. (CVE-2010-4242) Brad Spengler discovered that the kernel did not correctly account for userspace memory allocations during exec() calls. A local attacker could exploit this to consume all system memory, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-4243) Vegard Nossum discovered that memory garbage collection was not handled correctly for active sockets. A local attacker could exploit this to allocate all available kernel memory, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-4249) It was discovered that named pipes did not correctly handle certain fcntl calls. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-4256) Nelson Elhage discovered that the kernel did not correctly handle process cleanup after triggering a recoverable kernel bug. If a local attacker were able to trigger certain kinds of kernel bugs, they could create a specially crafted process to gain root privileges. (CVE-2010-4258) Kees Cook discovered that some ethtool functions did not correctly clear heap memory. A local attacker with CAP_NET_ADMIN privileges could exploit this to read portions of kernel heap memory, leading to a loss of privacy. (CVE-2010-4655) Frank Arnold discovered that the IGMP protocol did not correctly parse certain packets. A remote attacker could send specially crafted traffic to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2011-0709).
