Base: 5.0 (as of 01-07-2011 - 09:53)
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 installed version of Firefox is earlier than 5.0 and thus, is potentially affected by the following security issues : - Multiple memory safety issues can lead to application crashes and possibly remote code execution. (CVE-2011-2374, CVE-2011-2375) - A use-after-free issue when viewing XUL documents with scripts disabled could lead to code execution. (CVE-2011-2373) - A memory corruption issue due to multipart / x-mixed-replace images could lead to memory corruption. (CVE-2011-2377) - When a JavaScript Array object has its length set to an extremely large value, the iteration of array elements that occurs when its reduceRight method is called could result in code execution due to an invalid index value being used. (CVE-2011-2371) - It is possible for an image from a different domain to be loaded into a WebGL texture which could be used to steal image data from a different site. (CVE-2011-2366, CVE-2011-2598) - An out-of-bounds read issue and an invalid write issue could cause the application to crash. (CVE-2011-2367, CVE-2011-2368) - HTML-encoded entities are improperly decoded when displayed inside SVG elements which could lead to cross-site scripting attacks.

    title Ubuntu 11.04 : firefox regression (USN-1157-3)
  • NASL family Ubuntu Local Security Checks
    NASL id UBUNTU_USN-1157-2.NASL
    description USN-1157-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Firefox. This update provides updated packages for use with Firefox 5. Bob Clary, Kevin Brosnan, Gary Kwong, Jesse Ruderman, Christian Biesinger, Bas Schouten, Igor Bukanov, Bill McCloskey, Olli Pettay, Daniel Veditz and Marcia Knous discovered multiple memory vulnerabilities in the browser rendering engine. An attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking Firefox. (CVE-2011-2374, CVE-2011-2375) Martin Barbella discovered that under certain conditions, viewing a XUL document while JavaScript was disabled caused deleted memory to be accessed. An attacker could potentially use this to crash Firefox or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking Firefox. (CVE-2011-2373) Jordi Chancel discovered a vulnerability on multipart/x-mixed-replace images due to memory corruption. An attacker could potentially use this to crash Firefox or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking Firefox. (CVE-2011-2377) Chris Rohlf and Yan Ivnitskiy discovered an integer overflow vulnerability in JavaScript Arrays. An attacker could potentially use this to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking Firefox. (CVE-2011-2371) It was discovered that Firefox's WebGL textures did not honor same-origin policy. If a user were tricked into viewing a malicious site, an attacker could potentially view image data from a different site. (CVE-2011-2366) Christoph Diehl discovered an out-of-bounds read vulnerability in WebGL code. An attacker could potentially read data that other processes had stored in the GPU. (CVE-2011-2367) Christoph Diehl discovered an invalid write vulnerability in WebGL code. An attacker could potentially use this to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking Firefox. (CVE-2011-2368) It was discovered that an unauthorized site could trigger an installation dialog for addons and themes. If a user were tricked into viewing a malicious site, an attacker could possibly trick the user into installing a malicious addon or theme. (CVE-2011-2370) Mario Heiderich discovered a vulnerability in displaying decoded HTML-encoded entities inside SVG elements. An attacker could utilize this to perform cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2011-2369). Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    title Ubuntu 11.04 : mozvoikko, ubufox, webfav update (USN-1157-2)
  • NASL family Windows
    NASL id SEAMONKEY_22.NASL
    description The installed version of SeaMonkey is earlier than 2.2.0. As such, it is potentially affected by the following security issues : - Errors in the WebGL implementation can allow the loading of WebGL textures from cross-domain images or allow the crash of the application and execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2011-2366, CVE-2011-2368) - An out-of-bounds read error exists in the WebGL implementation that can lead to crashes and may allow an attacker to read arbitrary data from the GPU, including that of other processes. (CVE-2011-2367) - An error exists in the decoding of HTML-encoded entities contained in SVG elements. This error could lead to cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2011-2369) - An unspecified error exists that allows non-whitelisted sites to trigger an install dialog for add-ons and themes. (CVE-2011-2370) - When a JavaScript Array object has its length set to an extremely large value, the iteration of array elements that occurs when its reduceRight method is called could result in code execution due to an invalid index value being used. (CVE-2011-2371) - A use-after-free error when viewing XUL documents with scripts disabled could lead to code execution. (CVE-2011-2373) - Multiple memory safety issues can lead to application crashes and possibly remote code execution. (CVE-2011-2375) - A memory corruption issue due to multipart / x-mixed-replace images could lead to memory corruption. (CVE-2011-2377)
