CWE CWE-94
CAPEC
  • 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.
  • Manipulating User-Controlled Variables
    This attack targets user controlled variables (DEBUG=1, PHP Globals, and So Forth). An attacker can override environment variables leveraging user-supplied, untrusted query variables directly used on the application server without any data sanitization. In extreme cases, the attacker can change variables controlling the business logic of the application. For instance, in languages like PHP, a number of poorly set default configurations may allow the user to override variables.

    description The remote Mac OS X host is running a version of Microsoft Office that is affected by the following vulnerabilities : - A use-after-free vulnerability could be triggered when reading a specially crafted Word file. (CVE-2011-1983) - A memory corruption vulnerability could be triggered when reading a specially crafted Excel file. (CVE-2011-3403) - A memory corruption vulnerability could be triggered when reading an invalid record in a specially crafted PowerPoint file. (CVE-2011-3413) If a remote attacker can trick a user into opening a malicious file using the affected install, these vulnerabilities could be leveraged to execute arbitrary code subject to the user's privileges.

    description The remote Windows host has a version of Microsoft PowerPoint that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - The application insecurely restricts the path used for loading external DLL files. This could lead to arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2011-3396) - The application could cause memory to be corrupted when reading an invalid record in a specially crafted PowerPoint file. (CVE-2011-3413) If a remote attacker can trick a user into opening a malicious PowerPoint file using the affected install, either vulnerability can be leveraged to execute arbitrary code subject to the user's privileges.
