||Apache Traffic Server 5.1.x before 5.1.1 allows remote attackers to bypass access restrictions by leveraging failure to properly tunnel remap requests using CONNECT.
|Base: ||7.5 |
Embedding Scripts within Scripts
An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities that are brought on by allowing remote hosts to execute scripts. The attacker leverages this capability to execute scripts to execute his/her own script by embedding it within other scripts that the target software is likely to execute. The attacker must have the ability to inject script into script that is likely to be executed. If this is done, then the attacker can potentially launch a variety of probes and attacks against the web server's local environment, in many cases the so-called DMZ, back end resources the web server can communicate with, and other hosts.
With the proliferation of intermediaries, such as Web App Firewalls, network devices, and even printers having JVMs and Web servers, there are many locales where an attacker can inject malicious scripts. Since this attack pattern defines scripts within scripts, there are likely privileges to execute said attack on the host.
Signature Spoofing by Key Theft
An attacker obtains an authoritative or reputable signer's private signature key by theft and then uses this key to forge signatures from the original signer to mislead a victim into performing actions that benefit the attacker.

|description||According to its banner, the version of Apache Traffic Server running
on the remote host is 5.1.x prior to 5.1.1. It is, therefore, affected
by the following vulnerabilities :
- A man-in-the-middle (MitM) information disclosure
vulnerability known as POODLE. The vulnerability is due
to the way SSL 3.0 handles padding bytes when decrypting
messages encrypted using block ciphers in cipher block
chaining (CBC) mode. MitM attackers can decrypt a
selected byte of a cipher text in as few as 256 tries if
they are able to force a victim application to
repeatedly send the same data over newly created SSL 3.0
- A flaw exists in the remap logic which may allow an
open relay to be enabled. (CVE-2014-3624)
Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead
relied only on the application's self-reported version number. |
