Subverting Environment Variable Values
The attacker directly or indirectly modifies environment variables used by or controlling the target software. The attacker's goal is to cause the target software to deviate from its expected operation in a manner that benefits the attacker.
An attacker engages in probing and exploration activity to identify constituents and properties of the target. Footprinting is a general term to describe a variety of information gathering techniques, often used by attackers in preparation for some attack. It consists of using tools to learn as much as possible about the composition, configuration, and security mechanisms of the targeted application, system or network. Information that might be collected during a footprinting effort could include open ports, applications and their versions, network topology, and similar information. While footprinting is not intended to be damaging (although certain activities, such as network scans, can sometimes cause disruptions to vulnerable applications inadvertently) it may often pave the way for more damaging attacks.
Exploiting Trust in Client (aka Make the Client Invisible)
An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities in client/server communication channel authentication and data integrity. It leverages the implicit trust a server places in the client, or more importantly, that which the server believes is the client.
An attacker executes this type of attack by placing themselves in the communication channel between client and server such that communication directly to the server is possible where the server believes it is communicating only with a valid client.
There are numerous variations of this type of attack.
An attacker carefully crafts small snippets of Java Script to efficiently detect the type of browser the potential victim is using. Many web-based attacks need prior knowledge of the web browser including the version of browser to ensure successful exploitation of a vulnerability. Having this knowledge allows an attacker to target the victim with attacks that specifically exploit known or zero day weaknesses in the type and version of the browser used by the victim. Automating this process via Java Script as a part of the same delivery system used to exploit the browser is considered more efficient as the attacker can supply a browser fingerprinting method and integrate it with exploit code, all contained in Java Script and in response to the same web page request by the browser.
Session Credential Falsification through Prediction
This attack targets predictable session ID in order to gain privileges. The attacker can predict the session ID used during a transaction to perform spoofing and session hijacking.
Reusing Session IDs (aka Session Replay)
This attack targets the reuse of valid session ID to spoof the target system in order to gain privileges. The attacker tries to reuse a stolen session ID used previously during a transaction to perform spoofing and session hijacking. Another name for this type of attack is Session Replay.
Using Slashes in Alternate Encoding
This attack targets the encoding of the Slash characters. An attacker would try to exploit common filtering problems related to the use of the slashes characters to gain access to resources on the target host. Directory-driven systems, such as file systems and databases, typically use the slash character to indicate traversal between directories or other container components. For murky historical reasons, PCs (and, as a result, Microsoft OSs) choose to use a backslash, whereas the UNIX world typically makes use of the forward slash. The schizophrenic result is that many MS-based systems are required to understand both forms of the slash. This gives the attacker many opportunities to discover and abuse a number of common filtering problems. The goal of this pattern is to discover server software that only applies filters to one version, but not the other.

|description||IBM WebSphere Application Server 8.5 prior to Fix Pack 18.104.22.168 appears
to be running on the remote host and is, therefore, potentially
affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- Numerous errors exist related to the included IBM SDK
for Java (based on the Oracle JDK) that could allow
denial of service attacks and information disclosure.
(CVE-2013-5372, CVE-2013-5780, CVE-2013-5803)
- User input validation errors exist related to the
Administrative console and the Oauth component that
could allow cross-site scripting attacks.
(CVE-2013-6725 / PM98132, CVE-2013-6323 / PI04777,
CVE-2013-6738 / PI05661)
- An error exists due to a failure to properly
handle by web services endpoint requests that
could allow denial of service attacks.
(CVE-2013-6325 / PM99450, PI08267)
- An error exists in the included IBM Global Security
Kit related to SSL handling that could allow denial
of service attacks. (CVE-2013-6329 / PI05309)
- A flaw exists with the 'mod_dav' module that is caused
when tracking the length of CDATA that has leading
white space. A remote attacker with a specially crafted
DAV WRITE request can cause the service to stop
responding. (CVE-2013-6438 / PI09345)
- An error exists in the included IBM Global Security
Kit related to malformed X.509 certificate chain
handling that could allow denial of service attacks.
(CVE-2013-6747 / PI09443)
- An error exists in the included Apache Tomcat version
related to handling 'Content-Type' HTTP headers and
multipart requests such as file uploads that could
allow denial of service attacks. (CVE-2014-0050 /
- An unspecified error exists that could allow file
disclosures to remote unauthenticated attackers.
(CVE-2014-0823 / PI05324)
- An unspecified error exists related to the
Administrative console that could allow a security
bypass. (CVE-2014-0857 / PI07808)
- An error exists related to a web server plugin and
retrying failed POST requests that could allow denial
of service attacks. (CVE-2014-0859 / PI08892)
- An error exists related to the Proxy and ODR components
that could allow information disclosure. (CVE-2014-0891
- An unspecified error exists related to the 'Liberty
Profile' that could allow information disclosure.
