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.

    title openSUSE Security Update : pidgin (openSUSE-2017-431)
  • NASL family Oracle Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL id ORACLELINUX_ELSA-2017-1854.NASL
    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2017:1854 : An update for pidgin is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section. Pidgin is an instant messaging program which can log in to multiple accounts on multiple instant messaging networks simultaneously. The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version: pidgin (2.10.11). (BZ#1369526) Security Fix(es) : * A denial of service flaw was found in the way Pidgin's Mxit plug-in handled emoticons. A malicious remote server or a man-in-the-middle attacker could potentially use this flaw to crash Pidgin by sending a specially crafted emoticon. (CVE-2014-3695) * A denial of service flaw was found in the way Pidgin parsed Groupwise server messages. A malicious remote server or a man-in-the-middle attacker could potentially use this flaw to cause Pidgin to consume an excessive amount of memory, possibly leading to a crash, by sending a specially crafted message. (CVE-2014-3696) * An information disclosure flaw was discovered in the way Pidgin parsed XMPP messages. A malicious remote server or a man-in-the-middle attacker could potentially use this flaw to disclose a portion of memory belonging to the Pidgin process by sending a specially crafted XMPP message. (CVE-2014-3698) * An out-of-bounds write flaw was found in the way Pidgin processed XML content. A malicious remote server could potentially use this flaw to crash Pidgin or execute arbitrary code in the context of the pidgin process. (CVE-2017-2640) * It was found that Pidgin's SSL/TLS plug-ins had a flaw in the certificate validation functionality. An attacker could use this flaw to create a fake certificate, that Pidgin would trust, which could be used to conduct man-in-the-middle attacks against Pidgin. (CVE-2014-3694) Red Hat would like to thank the Pidgin project for reporting these issues. Upstream acknowledges Yves Younan (Cisco Talos) and Richard Johnson (Cisco Talos) as the original reporters of CVE-2014-3695 and CVE-2014-3696; Thijs Alkemade and Paul Aurich as the original reporters of CVE-2014-3698; and Jacob Appelbaum and Moxie Marlinspike as the original reporters of CVE-2014-3694. Additional Changes : For detailed information on changes in this release, see the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.4 Release Notes linked from the References section.
