ID CVE-2014-0096
Summary java/org/apache/catalina/servlets/DefaultServlet.java in the default servlet in Apache Tomcat before 6.0.40, 7.x before 7.0.53, and 8.x before 8.0.4 does not properly restrict XSLT stylesheets, which allows remote attackers to bypass security-manager restrictions and read arbitrary files via a crafted web application that provides an XML external entity declaration in conjunction with an entity reference, related to an XML External Entity (XXE) issue.

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 Updated tomcat packages fix security vulnerabilities : Apache Tomcat 7.x before 7.0.47, when an HTTP connector or AJP connector is used, does not properly handle certain inconsistent HTTP request headers, which allows remote attackers to trigger incorrect identification of a request's length and conduct request-smuggling attacks via (1) multiple Content-Length headers or (2) a Content-Length header and a Transfer-Encoding: chunked header (CVE-2013-4286). Apache Tomcat 7.x before 7.0.50 processes chunked transfer coding without properly handling (1) a large total amount of chunked data or (2) whitespace characters in an HTTP header value within a trailer field, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service by streaming data (CVE-2013-4322). Apache Tomcat 7.x before 7.0.50 allows attackers to obtain Tomcat internals information by leveraging the presence of an untrusted web application with a context.xml, web.xml, *.jspx, *.tagx, or *.tld XML document containing an external entity declaration in conjunction with an entity reference, related to an XML External Entity (XXE) issue (CVE-2013-4590). Integer overflow in the parseChunkHeader function in java/org/apache/coyote/http11/filters/ChunkedInputFilter.java in Apache Tomcat before 6.0.40 and 7.x before 7.0.53 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (resource consumption) via a malformed chunk size in chunked transfer coding of a request during the streaming of data (CVE-2014-0075). java/org/apache/catalina/servlets/DefaultServlet.java in the default servlet in Apache Tomcat before 6.0.40 and 7.x before 7.0.53 does not properly restrict XSLT stylesheets, which allows remote attackers to bypass security-manager restrictions and read arbitrary files via a crafted web application that provides an XML external entity declaration in conjunction with an entity reference, related to an XML External Entity (XXE) issue (CVE-2014-0096). Integer overflow in java/org/apache/tomcat/util/buf/Ascii.java in Apache Tomcat before 6.0.40 and 7.x before 7.0.53, when operated behind a reverse proxy, allows remote attackers to conduct HTTP request smuggling attacks via a crafted Content-Length HTTP header (CVE-2014-0099). Apache Tomcat before 6.0.40 and 7.x before 7.0.54 does not properly constrain the class loader that accesses the XML parser used with an XSLT stylesheet, which allows remote attackers to read arbitrary files via a crafted web application that provides an XML external entity declaration in conjunction with an entity reference, related to an XML External Entity (XXE) issue, or read files associated with different web applications on a single Tomcat instance via a crafted web application (CVE-2014-0119). In Apache Tomcat 7.x before 7.0.55, it was possible to craft a malformed chunk as part of a chunked request that caused Tomcat to read part of the request body as a new request (CVE-2014-0227).

    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2014:0865 : Updated tomcat6 packages that fix three security issues and two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having Moderate security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. Apache Tomcat is a servlet container for the Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages (JSP) technologies. It was discovered that Apache Tomcat did not limit the length of chunk sizes when using chunked transfer encoding. A remote attacker could use this flaw to perform a denial of service attack against Tomcat by streaming an unlimited quantity of data, leading to excessive consumption of server resources. (CVE-2014-0075) It was found that Apache Tomcat did not check for overflowing values when parsing request content length headers. A remote attacker could use this flaw to perform an HTTP request smuggling attack on a Tomcat server located behind a reverse proxy that processed the content length header correctly. (CVE-2014-0099) It was found that the org.apache.catalina.servlets.DefaultServlet implementation in Apache Tomcat allowed the definition of XML External Entities (XXEs) in provided XSLTs. A malicious application could use this to circumvent intended security restrictions to disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2014-0096) The CVE-2014-0075 issue was discovered by David Jorm of Red Hat Product Security. This update also fixes the following bugs : * The patch that resolved the CVE-2014-0050 issue contained redundant code. This update removes the redundant code. (BZ#1094528) * The patch that resolved the CVE-2013-4322 issue contained an invalid check that triggered a java.io.EOFException while reading trailer headers for chunked requests. This update fixes the check and the aforementioned exception is no longer triggered in the described scenario. (BZ#1095602) All Tomcat 6 users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. Tomcat must be restarted for this update to take effect.

Integer overflow in java/org/apache/tomcat/util/buf/Ascii.java in Apache Tomcat before 6.0.40 and 7.x before 7.0.53, when operated behind a reverse proxy, allows remote attackers to conduct HTTP request smuggling attacks via a crafted Content-Length HTTP header (CVE-2014-0099). Apache Tomcat before 6.0.40 and 7.x before 7.0.54 does not properly constrain the class loader that accesses the XML parser used with an XSLT stylesheet, which allows remote attackers to read arbitrary files via a crafted web application that provides an XML external entity declaration in conjunction with an entity reference, related to an XML External Entity (XXE) issue, or read files associated with different web applications on a single Tomcat instance via a crafted web application (CVE-2014-0119). In Apache Tomcat 6.x before 6.0.55, it was possible to craft a malformed chunk as part of a chunked request that caused Tomcat to read part of the request body as a new request (CVE-2014-0227).

    description The remote IBM Storwize device is running a version that is 1.3.x prior to 1.4.3.4 or 1.5.x prior to 1.5.0.2. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - A denial of service vulnerability exists due to a flaw in the bundled version of Apache HTTP Server. A remote attacker can exploit this, via partial HTTP requests, to cause a daemon outage, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2007-6750) - An HTTP request smuggling vulnerability exists due to a flaw in the bundled version of Apache Tomcat; when an HTTP connector or AJP connector is used, Tomcat fails to properly handle certain inconsistent HTTP request headers. A remote attacker can exploit this flaw, via multiple Content-Length headers or a Content-Length header and a 'Transfer-Encoding: chunked' header, to smuggle an HTTP request in one or more Content-Length headers. (CVE-2013-4286) - A denial of service vulnerability exists in the bundled version of Apache Tomcat due to improper processing of chunked transfer coding with a large amount of chunked data or whitespace characters in an HTTP header value within a trailer field. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2013-4322) - A denial of service vulnerability exists due to a flaw in the bundled version of Apache Tomcat; an integer overflow condition exists in the parseChunkHeader() function in ChunkedInputFilter.java. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a malformed chunk size that is part of a chunked request, to cause excessive consumption of resources, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2014-0075) - A remote code execution vulnerability exists due to a flaw in the bundled version of Apache Struts. A remote attacker can manipulate the ClassLoader via the class parameter, resulting in the execution of arbitrary Java code. (CVE-2014-0094) - An XML External Entity (XXE) injection vulnerability exists due to a flaw in the bundled version of Apache Tomcat; an incorrectly configured XML parser accepts XML external entities from an untrusted source via XSLT. A remote attacker can exploit this, by sending specially crafted XML data, to gain access to arbitrary files. (CVE-2014-0096) - An integer overflow condition exists in the bundled version of Apache Tomcat. A remote attacker, via a crafted Content-Length HTTP header, can conduct HTTP request smuggling attacks. (CVE-2014-0099) - An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to a flaw in the bundled version of Apache Tomcat. Tomcat fails to properly constrain the class loader that accesses the XML parser used with an XSLT stylesheet. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted web application that provides an XML external entity declaration in conjunction with an entity reference, to read arbitrary files. (CVE-2014-0119) - A flaw exists in a bundled version of Samba due to a flaw in the vfswrap_fsctl() function that is triggered when responding to FSCTL_GET_SHADOW_COPY_DATA or FSCTL_SRV_ENUMERATE_SNAPSHOTS client requests. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted request, to disclose sensitive information from process memory. (CVE-2014-0178) - Multiple flaws exist in the bundled version of Mozilla Firefox that allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-1555, CVE-2014-1556, CVE-2014-1557) - An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to the chkauth password being saved in plaintext in the audit log. A local attacker can exploit this to gain administrator access. (CVE-2014-3077) - A denial of service vulnerability exists due to a flaw in the bundled version of Samba. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via an attempt to read a Unicode pathname without specifying the use of Unicode, to cause an application crash. (CVE-2014-3493) - A security bypass vulnerability exists due to an unspecified flaw. A remote attacker can exploit this flaw to reset the administrator password to its default value via a direct request to the administrative IP address. Note that this vulnerability only affects the 1.4.x release levels. (CVE-2014-4811)

    description It was discovered that JBoss Web / Apache Tomcat did not limit the length of chunk sizes when using chunked transfer encoding. A remote attacker could use this flaw to perform a denial of service attack against JBoss Web / Apache Tomcat by streaming an unlimited quantity of data, leading to excessive consumption of server resources. (CVE-2014-0075) It was found that the org.apache.catalina.servlets.DefaultServlet implementation in JBoss Web / Apache Tomcat allowed the definition of XML External Entities (XXEs) in provided XSLTs. A malicious application could use this to circumvent intended security restrictions to disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2014-0096) It was found that JBoss Web / Apache Tomcat did not check for overflowing values when parsing request content length headers. A remote attacker could use this flaw to perform an HTTP request smuggling attack on a JBoss Web / Apache Tomcat server located behind a reverse proxy that processed the content length header correctly. (CVE-2014-0099) It was discovered that the ChunkedInputFilter in Tomcat did not fail subsequent attempts to read input after malformed chunked encoding was detected. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to make Tomcat process part of the request body as new request, or cause a denial of service. (CVE-2014-0227)

    description The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address security updates : - Integer overflow in the parseChunkHeader function in java/org/apache/coyote/ http11/filters/ChunkedInputFilter.java in Apache Tomcat before 6.0.40, 7.x before 7.0.53, and 8.x before 8.0.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (resource consumption) via a malformed chunk size in chunked transfer coding of a request during the streaming of data. (CVE-2014-0075) - java/org/apache/catalina/servlets/DefaultServlet.java in the default servlet in Apache Tomcat before 6.0.40, 7.x before 7.0.53, and 8.x before 8.0.4 does not properly restrict XSLT stylesheets, which allows remote attackers to bypass security-manager restrictions and read arbitrary files via a crafted web application that provides an XML external entity declaration in conjunction with an entity reference, related to an XML External Entity (XXE) issue. (CVE-2014-0096) - Integer overflow in java/org/apache/tomcat/util/buf/Ascii.java in Apache Tomcat before 6.0.40, 7.x before 7.0.53, and 8.x before 8.0.4, when operated behind a reverse proxy, allows remote attackers to conduct HTTP request smuggling attacks via a crafted Content-Length HTTP header. (CVE-2014-0099) - Apache Tomcat before 6.0.40, 7.x before 7.0.54, and 8.x before 8.0.6 does not properly constrain the class loader that accesses the XML parser used with an XSLT stylesheet, which allows remote attackers to (1) read arbitrary files via a crafted web application that provides an XML external entity declaration in conjunction with an entity reference, related to an XML External Entity (XXE) issue, or (2) read files associated with different web applications on a single Tomcat instance via a crafted web application.

    description Updated Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.2.4 packages that fix multiple security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having Moderate security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 is a platform for Java applications based on JBoss Application Server 7. It was discovered that JBoss Web did not limit the length of chunk sizes when using chunked transfer encoding. A remote attacker could use this flaw to perform a denial of service attack against JBoss Web by streaming an unlimited quantity of data, leading to excessive consumption of server resources. (CVE-2014-0075) It was found that JBoss Web did not check for overflowing values when parsing request content length headers. A remote attacker could use this flaw to perform an HTTP request smuggling attack on a JBoss Web server located behind a reverse proxy that processed the content length header correctly. (CVE-2014-0099) It was found that the org.apache.catalina.servlets.DefaultServlet implementation in JBoss Web allowed the definition of XML External Entities (XXEs) in provided XSLTs. A malicious application could use this to circumvent intended security restrictions to disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2014-0096) It was found that, in certain circumstances, it was possible for a malicious web application to replace the XML parsers used by JBoss Web to process XSLTs for the default servlet, JSP documents, tag library descriptors (TLDs), and tag plug-in configuration files. The injected XML parser(s) could then bypass the limits imposed on XML external entities and/or gain access to the XML files processed for other web applications deployed on the same JBoss Web instance. (CVE-2014-0119) The CVE-2014-0075 issue was discovered by David Jorm of Red Hat Product Security. All users of Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.2.4 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages. The JBoss server process must be restarted for the update to take effect.
