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 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.
Manipulating User-Controlled Variables
This attack targets user controlled variables (DEBUG=1, PHP Globals, and So Forth). An attacker can override environment variables leveraging user-supplied, untrusted query variables directly used on the application server without any data sanitization. In extreme cases, the attacker can change variables controlling the business logic of the application. For instance, in languages like PHP, a number of poorly set default configurations may allow the user to override variables.

|description||The remote host appears to be running IBM WebSphere Application Server 8.5 prior to Fix Pack 18.104.22.168. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- A flaw exists in the Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm implementation which could allow a malicious process to recover ECDSA nonces.
- A denial of service flaw exists in the 'mod_log_config' when logging a cookie with an unassigned value. A remote attacker, using a specially crafted request, can cause the program to crash. (CVE-2014-0098, PI13028)
- A denial of service flaw exists within the IBM Security Access Manager for Web with the Reverse Proxy component.
This could allow a remote attacker, using specially crafted TLS traffic, to cause the application on the system to become unresponsive. (CVE-2014-0963, PI17025)
- An information disclosure flaw exists when handling SOAP responses. This could allow a remote attacker to potentially gain access to sensitive information.
- An information disclosure flaw exists. A remote attacker, using a specially crafted URL, could gain access to potentially sensitive information.
- A flaw exists within the 'addFileRegistryAccount' Virtual Member Manager SPI Admin Task, which creates improper accounts. This could allow a remote attacker to bypass security checks. (CVE-2014-3070, PI16765)
- An unspecified information disclosure flaw exists. This could allow a remote attacker access to gain sensitive information. (CVE-2014-3083, PI17768)
- An information disclosure flaw exists within the 'share/classes/sun/security/rsa/RSACore.java' class related to 'RSA blinding' caused during operations using private keys and measuring timing differences. This could allow a remote attacker to gain information about used keys. (CVE-2014-4244)
- A flaw exists within the 'validateDHPublicKey' function in the 'share/classes/sun/security/util/KeyUtil.java' class which is triggered during the validation of Diffie-Hellman public key parameters. This could allow a remote attacker to recover a key. (CVE-2014-4263)
- A flaw exists within the Load Balancer for IPv4 Dispatcher component. This could allow a remote attacker to crash the Load Balancer. (CVE-2014-4764, PI21189)
- A flaw exists within the Liberty Repository when installing features. This could allow an authenticated remote attacker to install and execute arbitrary code.
