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.

  • 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-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-2011-1477) - 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-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)

(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. (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 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) - 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)
