Exploitability:
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.

The following security issues were fixed : - The code for evaluating LDM partitions (in fs/partitions/ldm.c) contained bugs that could crash the kernel for certain corrupted LDM partitions. (CVE-2011-1017 / CVE-2011-1012) - Boundschecking was missing in AARESOLVE_OFFSET, which allowed local attackers to overwrite kernel memory and so escalate privileges or crash the kernel. (CVE-2011-1573) - When using a setuid root mount.cifs, local users could hijack password protected mounted CIFS shares of other local users. (CVE-2011-1585) - Kernel information via the TPM devices could by used by local attackers to read kernel memory. (CVE-2011-1160) - The Linux kernel automatically evaluated partition tables of storage devices. The code for evaluating EFI GUID partitions (in fs/partitions/efi.c) contained a bug that causes a kernel oops on certain corrupted GUID partition tables, which might be used by local attackers to crash the kernel or potentially execute code. (CVE-2011-1577) - In the IrDA module, length fields provided by a peer for names and attributes may be longer than the destination array sizes and were not checked, this allowed local attackers (close to the irda port) to potentially corrupt memory. (CVE-2011-1180) - A system out of memory condition (denial of service) could be triggered with a large socket backlog, exploitable by local users. This has been addressed by backlog limiting. (CVE-2010-4251) - The Radeon GPU drivers in the Linux kernel did not properly validate data related to the AA resolve registers, which allowed local users to write to arbitrary memory locations associated with (1) Video RAM (aka VRAM) or (2) the Graphics Translation Table (GTT) via crafted values. (CVE-2011-1016) - When parsing the FAC_NATIONAL_DIGIS facilities field, it was possible for a remote host to provide more digipeaters than expected, resulting in heap corruption. (CVE-2011-1493) - Local attackers could send signals to their programs that looked like coming from the kernel, potentially gaining privileges in the context of setuid programs. (CVE-2011-1182) - The code for evaluating Mac partitions (in fs/partitions/mac.c) contained a bug that could crash the kernel for certain corrupted Mac partitions. (CVE-2011-1010) - The code for evaluating OSF partitions (in fs/partitions/osf.c) contained a bug that leaks data from kernel heap memory to userspace for certain corrupted OSF partitions. (CVE-2011-1163) - Specially crafted requests may be written to /dev/sequencer resulting in an underflow when calculating a size for a copy_from_user() operation in the driver for MIDI interfaces. On x86, this just returns an error, but it could have caused memory corruption on other architectures. Other malformed requests could have resulted in the use of uninitialized variables. (CVE-2011-1476) - Due to a failure to validate user-supplied indexes in the driver for Yamaha YM3812 and OPL-3 chips, a specially crafted ioctl request could have been sent to /dev/sequencer, resulting in reading and writing beyond the bounds of heap buffers, and potentially allowing privilege escalation. (CVE-2011-1477) - A information leak in the XFS geometry calls could be used by local attackers to gain access to kernel information. (CVE-2011-0191) - The sctp_rcv_ootb function in the SCTP implementation in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via (1) an Out Of The Blue (OOTB) chunk or (2) a chunk of zero length. (CVE-2010-0008)

    title SuSE 10 Security Update : Linux kernel (ZYPP Patch Number 7515)
  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_KERNEL-7568.NASL
    description This kernel update for the SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP3 kernel fixes several security issues and bugs. The following security issues were fixed : - Multiple integer overflows in the next_pidmap function in kernel/pid.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) via a crafted (1) getdents or (2) readdir system call. (CVE-2011-1593) - Only half of the fix for this vulnerability was only applied, the fix was completed now. Original text: drivers/net/e1000/e1000_main.c in the e1000 driver in the Linux kernel handled Ethernet frames that exceed the MTU by processing certain trailing payload data as if it were a complete frame, which allows remote attackers to bypass packet filters via a large packet with a crafted payload. (CVE-2009-4536) - Boundschecking was missing in AARESOLVE_OFFSET in the SCTP protocol, which allowed local attackers to overwrite kernel memory and so escalate privileges or crash the kernel. (CVE-2011-1573) - Heap-based buffer overflow in the ldm_frag_add function in fs/partitions/ldm.c in the Linux kernel might have allowed local users to gain privileges or obtain sensitive information via a crafted LDM partition table. (CVE-2011-1017) - When using a setuid root mount.cifs, local users could hijack password protected mounted CIFS shares of other local users. (CVE-2011-1585) - Kernel information via the TPM devices could by used by local attackers to read kernel memory.

    description The openSUSE 11.4 kernel was updated to 2.6.37.6 fixing lots of bugs and security issues. Following security issues have been fixed: CVE-2011-1493: In the rose networking stack, when parsing the FAC_NATIONAL_DIGIS facilities field, it was possible for a remote host to provide more digipeaters than expected, resulting in heap corruption. Check against ROSE_MAX_DIGIS to prevent overflows, and abort facilities parsing on failure. CVE-2011-1182: Local attackers could send signals to their programs that looked like coming from the kernel, potentially gaining privileges in the context of setuid programs. CVE-2011-1478: An issue in the core GRO code where an skb belonging to an unknown VLAN is reused could result in a NULL pointer dereference. CVE-2011-1476: Specially crafted requests may be written to /dev/sequencer resulting in an underflow when calculating a size for a copy_from_user() operation in the driver for MIDI interfaces. On x86, this just returns an error, but it could have caused memory corruption on other architectures. Other malformed requests could have resulted in the use of uninitialized variables.

CVE-2011-0191: A information leak in the XFS geometry calls could be used by local attackers to gain access to kernel information. CVE-2011-0711: A stack memory information leak in the xfs FSGEOMETRY_V1 ioctl was fixed. CVE-2011-0521: The dvb_ca_ioctl function in drivers/media/dvb/ttpci/av7110_ca.c in the Linux kernel did not check the sign of a certain integer field, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a negative value. CVE-2011-1010: The code for evaluating Mac partitions (in fs/partitions/mac.c) contained a bug that could crash the kernel for certain corrupted Mac partitions. CVE-2011-0712: Multiple buffer overflows in the caiaq Native Instruments USB audio functionality in the Linux kernel might have allowed attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via a long USB device name, related to (1) the snd_usb_caiaq_audio_init function in sound/usb/caiaq/audio.c and (2) the snd_usb_caiaq_midi_init function in sound/usb/caiaq/midi.c. CVE-2011-1013: A signedness issue in the drm ioctl handling could be used by local attackers to potentially overflow kernel buffers and execute code. CVE-2011-1082: The epoll subsystem in Linux did not prevent users from creating circular epoll file structures, potentially leading to a denial of service (kernel deadlock). CVE-2010-4650: A kernel buffer overflow in the cuse server module was fixed, which might have allowed local privilege escalation. However only CUSE servers could exploit it and /dev/cuse is normally restricted to root. CVE-2011-1093: A bug was fixed in the DCCP networking stack where the order of dccp_rcv_state_process() still permitted reception even after closing the socket. A Reset after close thus causes a NULL pointer dereference by not preventing operations on an already torn-down socket. CVE-2011-1163: The code for evaluating OSF partitions (in fs/partitions/osf.c) contained a bug that leaks data from kernel heap memory to userspace for certain corrupted OSF partitions.

    NASL id SUSE_11_KERNEL-110414.NASL
    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 Service Pack 1 kernel was updated to 2.6.32.36 and fixes various bugs and security issues. The following security issues were fixed : - When parsing the FAC_NATIONAL_DIGIS facilities field, it was possible for a remote host to provide more digipeaters than expected, resulting in heap corruption. (CVE-2011-1493) - (no CVEs assigned yet): In the rose networking stack, when parsing the FAC_CCITT_DEST_NSAP and FAC_CCITT_SRC_NSAP facilities fields, a remote host could provide a length of less than 10, resulting in an underflow in a memcpy size, causing a kernel panic due to massive heap corruption. A length of greater than 20 results in a stack overflow of the callsign array - The code for evaluating OSF partitions (in fs/partitions/osf.c) contained a bug that leaks data from kernel heap memory to userspace for certain corrupted OSF partitions. (CVE-2011-1163) - A bug in the order of dccp_rcv_state_process() was fixed that still permitted reception even after closing the socket. A Reset after close thus causes a NULL pointer dereference by not preventing operations on an already torn-down socket. (CVE-2011-1093) - A signedness issue in drm_modeset_ctl() could be used by local attackers with access to the drm devices to potentially crash the kernel or escalate privileges. (CVE-2011-1013) - The epoll subsystem in Linux did not prevent users from creating circular epoll file structures, potentially leading to a denial of service (kernel deadlock). (CVE-2011-1082) - Multiple buffer overflows in the caiaq Native Instruments USB audio functionality in the Linux kernel might have allowed attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via a long USB device name, related to (1) the snd_usb_caiaq_audio_init function in sound/usb/caiaq/audio.c and (2) the snd_usb_caiaq_midi_init function in sound/usb/caiaq/midi.c. (CVE-2011-0712) - Local attackers could send signals to their programs that looked like coming from the kernel, potentially gaining privileges in the context of setuid programs. (CVE-2011-1182) - An issue in the core GRO code where an skb belonging to an unknown VLAN is reused could result in a NULL pointer dereference. (CVE-2011-1478) - Specially crafted requests may be written to /dev/sequencer resulting in an underflow when calculating a size for a copy_from_user() operation in the driver for MIDI interfaces. On x86, this just returns an error, but it could have caused memory corruption on other architectures. Other malformed requests could have resulted in the use of uninitialized variables. (CVE-2011-1476) - Due to a failure to validate user-supplied indexes in the driver for Yamaha YM3812 and OPL-3 chips, a specially crafted ioctl request could have been sent to /dev/sequencer, resulting in reading and writing beyond the bounds of heap buffers, and potentially allowing privilege escalation. (CVE-2011-1477) - A information leak in the XFS geometry calls could be used by local attackers to gain access to kernel information. (CVE-2011-0191) - A page allocator issue in NFS v4 ACL handling that could lead to a denial of service (crash) was fixed. (CVE-2011-1090) - net/ipv4/inet_diag.c in the Linux kernel did not properly audit INET_DIAG bytecode, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (kernel infinite loop) via crafted INET_DIAG_REQ_BYTECODE instructions in a netlink message that contains multiple attribute elements, as demonstrated by INET_DIAG_BC_JMP instructions. (CVE-2010-3880) - Fixed a buffer size issue in 'usb iowarrior' module, where a malicious device could overflow a kernel buffer. (CVE-2010-4656) - The dvb_ca_ioctl function in drivers/media/dvb/ttpci/av7110_ca.c in the Linux kernel did not check the sign of a certain integer field, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a negative value. (CVE-2011-0521) - In the IrDA module, length fields provided by a peer for names and attributes may be longer than the destination array sizes and were not checked, this allowed local attackers (close to the irda port) to potentially corrupt memory. (CVE-2011-1180) - A system out of memory condition (denial of service) could be triggered with a large socket backlog, exploitable by local users. This has been addressed by backlog limiting. (CVE-2010-4251) - The Radeon GPU drivers in the Linux kernel did not properly validate data related to the AA resolve registers, which allowed local users to write to arbitrary memory locations associated with (1) Video RAM (aka VRAM) or (2) the Graphics Translation Table (GTT) via crafted values. (CVE-2011-1016) - Boundschecking was missing in AARESOLVE_OFFSET, which allowed local attackers to overwrite kernel memory and so escalate privileges or crash the kernel. (CVE-2011-1573)

    title SuSE 11.1 Security Update : Linux kernel (SAT Patch Numbers 4384 / 4386)
  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_KERNEL-7516.NASL
    description This kernel update for the SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP4 kernel fixes several security issues and bugs. The following security issues were fixed : - The code for evaluating LDM partitions (in fs/partitions/ldm.c) contained bugs that could crash the kernel for certain corrupted LDM partitions. (CVE-2011-1017 / CVE-2011-1012) - Boundschecking was missing in AARESOLVE_OFFSET, which allowed local attackers to overwrite kernel memory and so escalate privileges or crash the kernel. (CVE-2011-1573) - When using a setuid root mount.cifs, local users could hijack password protected mounted CIFS shares of other local users. (CVE-2011-1585) - Kernel information via the TPM devices could by used by local attackers to read kernel memory. (CVE-2011-1160) - The Linux kernel automatically evaluated partition tables of storage devices. The code for evaluating EFI GUID partitions (in fs/partitions/efi.c) contained a bug that causes a kernel oops on certain corrupted GUID partition tables, which might be used by local attackers to crash the kernel or potentially execute code. (CVE-2011-1577) - In the IrDA module, length fields provided by a peer for names and attributes may be longer than the destination array sizes and were not checked, this allowed local attackers (close to the irda port) to potentially corrupt memory. (CVE-2011-1180) - A system out of memory condition (denial of service) could be triggered with a large socket backlog, exploitable by local users. This has been addressed by backlog limiting. (CVE-2010-4251) - The Radeon GPU drivers in the Linux kernel did not properly validate data related to the AA resolve registers, which allowed local users to write to arbitrary memory locations associated with (1) Video RAM (aka VRAM) or (2) the Graphics Translation Table (GTT) via crafted values. (CVE-2011-1016) - When parsing the FAC_NATIONAL_DIGIS facilities field, it was possible for a remote host to provide more digipeaters than expected, resulting in heap corruption. (CVE-2011-1493) - Local attackers could send signals to their programs that looked like coming from the kernel, potentially gaining privileges in the context of setuid programs. (CVE-2011-1182) - The code for evaluating Mac partitions (in fs/partitions/mac.c) contained a bug that could crash the kernel for certain corrupted Mac partitions. (CVE-2011-1010) - The code for evaluating OSF partitions (in fs/partitions/osf.c) contained a bug that leaks data from kernel heap memory to userspace for certain corrupted OSF partitions. (CVE-2011-1163) - Specially crafted requests may be written to /dev/sequencer resulting in an underflow when calculating a size for a copy_from_user() operation in the driver for MIDI interfaces. On x86, this just returns an error, but it could have caused memory corruption on other architectures. Other malformed requests could have resulted in the use of uninitialized variables. (CVE-2011-1476) - Due to a failure to validate user-supplied indexes in the driver for Yamaha YM3812 and OPL-3 chips, a specially crafted ioctl request could have been sent to /dev/sequencer, resulting in reading and writing beyond the bounds of heap buffers, and potentially allowing privilege escalation. (CVE-2011-1477) - A information leak in the XFS geometry calls could be used by local attackers to gain access to kernel information. (CVE-2011-0191) - The sctp_rcv_ootb function in the SCTP implementation in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via (1) an Out Of The Blue (OOTB) chunk or (2) a chunk of zero length. (CVE-2010-0008)

    title SuSE 10 Security Update : Linux kernel (ZYPP Patch Number 7516)
  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_11_KERNEL-110415.NASL
    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 Service Pack 1 kernel was updated to 2.6.32.36 and fixes various bugs and security issues. The following security issues were fixed : - When parsing the FAC_NATIONAL_DIGIS facilities field, it was possible for a remote host to provide more digipeaters than expected, resulting in heap corruption. (CVE-2011-1493) - (no CVEs assigned yet): In the rose networking stack, when parsing the FAC_CCITT_DEST_NSAP and FAC_CCITT_SRC_NSAP facilities fields, a remote host could provide a length of less than 10, resulting in an underflow in a memcpy size, causing a kernel panic due to massive heap corruption. A length of greater than 20 results in a stack overflow of the callsign array - The code for evaluating OSF partitions (in fs/partitions/osf.c) contained a bug that leaks data from kernel heap memory to userspace for certain corrupted OSF partitions. (CVE-2011-1163) - A bug in the order of dccp_rcv_state_process() was fixed that still permitted reception even after closing the socket. A Reset after close thus causes a NULL pointer dereference by not preventing operations on an already torn-down socket. (CVE-2011-1093) - A signedness issue in drm_modeset_ctl() could be used by local attackers with access to the drm devices to potentially crash the kernel or escalate privileges. (CVE-2011-1013) - The epoll subsystem in Linux did not prevent users from creating circular epoll file structures, potentially leading to a denial of service (kernel deadlock). (CVE-2011-1082) - Multiple buffer overflows in the caiaq Native Instruments USB audio functionality in the Linux kernel might have allowed attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via a long USB device name, related to (1) the snd_usb_caiaq_audio_init function in sound/usb/caiaq/audio.c and (2) the snd_usb_caiaq_midi_init function in sound/usb/caiaq/midi.c.
