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.

    description The version of Oracle HTTP Server installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the Web Listener subcomponent : - An integer overflow condition exists in libxml2 within file xpath.c, related to XPath expressions when adding a new namespace note. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted XML file, to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitary code. (CVE-2011-1944) - An integer overflow condition exists in the HTTP server, specifically in the ap_pregsub() function within file server/util.c, when the mod_setenvif module is enabled. A local attacker can exploit this to gain elevated privileges by using an .htaccess file with a crafted combination of SetEnvIf directives and HTTP request headers. (CVE-2011-3607) - A flaw exists in libxml2, known as the 'internal entity expansion' with linear complexity issue, that allows specially crafted XML files to consume excessive CPU and memory resources. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition by using a specially crafted XML file containing an entity declaration with long replacement text and many references to this entity. (CVE-2013-0338) - An out-of-bounds read error exists in libxml2 within file parser.c due to a failure to check for the XML_PARSER_EOF state. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted document that ends abruptly, to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2013-2877) - A flaw exists within the mod_headers module in the HTTP server which allows bypassing the 'RequestHeader unset' directives. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to inject arbitrary headers. This is done by placing a header in the trailer portion of data being sent using chunked transfer encoding. (CVE-2013-5704) - A flaw exists in the dav_xml_get_cdata() function in file main/util.c within the HTTP server mod_dav module due to incorrect stripping of whitespace characters from the CDATA sections. An unauthenticated, remote attacker via a specially crafted DAV WRITE request, can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2013-6438) - A flaw exists in the log_cookie() function in file mod_log_config.c within the HTTP server mod_log_config module due to improper handling of specially crafted cookies during truncation. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition via a segmentation fault. (CVE-2014-0098) - A flaw exists in libxml2, specifically in the xmlParserHandlePEReference() function in file parser.c, due to loading external parameter entities even when entity substitution is disabled. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue, via a specially crafted XML file, to conduct XML External Entity (XXE) attacks that exhaust CPU and memory resources, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2014-0191) - A race condition exists in the HTTP server within the mod_status module when using a threaded Multi-Processing Module (MPM). If an unauthenticated, remote attacker is able to access status pages served by mod_status, the attacker can exploit this issue, by sending specially crafted requests, to cause the httpd child process to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the web server. (CVE-2014-0226) - An unspecified flaw exists in the Web Listener subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to impact confidentiality, integrity, and availability. (CVE-2014-6571) - An unspecified flaw exists in the J2EE subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to disclose potentially sensitive information. (CVE-2015-0372) - An unspecified flaw exists in the Web Listener subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2015-0386)

    description Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in libxml2 : A denial of service flaw was found in the way libxml2, a library providing support to read, modify and write XML and HTML files, performed string substitutions when entity values for external entity references replacement (--noent option) was requested / enabled during the XML file parsing. A remote attacker could provide a specially crafted XML file containing an external entity expansion, when processed would lead to excessive CPU consumption (denial of service) (CVE-2013-0339). This a different flaw from CVE-2013-0338. parser.c in libxml2 before 2.9.0, as used in Google Chrome before 28.0.1500.71 and other products, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) via a document that ends abruptly, related to the lack of certain checks for the XML_PARSER_EOF state (CVE-2013-2877). The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
