Exploitability:
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 host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201309-16 (Chromium, V8: Multiple vulnerabilities) Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Chromium and V8. Please review the CVE identifiers and release notes referenced below for details. Impact : A context-dependent attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted website or JavaScript program using Chromium or V8, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition. Furthermore, a remote attacker may be able to bypass security restrictions or have other, unspecified, impact. Workaround : There is no known workaround at this time.

    description The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote host is earlier than 23.0.1271.97 and is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities : - Use-after-free errors exist related to visibility events and the URL loader. (CVE-2012-5139, CVE-2012-5140) - An unspecified error exists related to instantiation of the 'Chromoting' client plugin. (CVE-2012-5141) - An unspecified error exists related to history navigation that can lead to application crashes. (CVE-2012-5142) - An integer overflow error exists related to the 'PPAPI' image buffers. (CVE-2012-5143) - A stack corruption error exists related to 'AAC' decoding. (CVE-2012-5144) - The bundled version of Adobe Flash Player contains flaws that can lead to arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2012-5676, CVE-2012-5677, CVE-2012-5678) Successful exploitation of some of these issues could lead to an application crash or even allow arbitrary code execution, subject to the user's privileges.
