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.

Integer signedness error in the Mac_Read_POST_Resource function in base/ftobjs.c in FreeType before 2.5.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted Mac font (CVE-2014-9673). The Mac_Read_POST_Resource function in base/ftobjs.c in FreeType before 2.5.4 proceeds with adding to length values without validating the original values, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (integer overflow and heap-based buffer overflow) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted Mac font (CVE-2014-9674). bdf/bdflib.c in FreeType before 2.5.4 identifies property names by only verifying that an initial substring is present, which allows remote attackers to discover heap pointer values and bypass the ASLR protection mechanism via a crafted BDF font (CVE-2014-9675).

    description Updated freetype2 packages fix security vulnerabilities : It was reported that Freetype before 2.5.3 suffers from an out-of-bounds stack-based read/write flaw in cf2_hintmap_build() in the CFF rasterizing code, which could lead to a buffer overflow (CVE-2014-2240). It was also reported that Freetype before 2.5.3 has a denial-of-service vulnerability in the CFF rasterizing code, due to a reachable assertion (CVE-2014-2241). It was reported that Freetype before 2.5.4 suffers from an out-of-bounds stack-based read/write flaw in cf2_hintmap_build() in the CFF rasterizing code, which could lead to a buffer overflow. This is due to an incomplete fix for CVE-2014-2240. The tt_sbit_decoder_load_image function in sfnt/ttsbit.c in FreeType before 2.5.4 does not properly check for an integer overflow, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted OpenType font (CVE-2014-9656). The tt_face_load_hdmx function in truetype/ttpload.c in FreeType before 2.5.4 does not establish a minimum record size, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted TrueType font (CVE-2014-9657). The tt_face_load_kern function in sfnt/ttkern.c in FreeType before 2.5.4enforces an incorrect minimum table length, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted TrueType font (CVE-2014-9658). The _bdf_parse_glyphs function in bdf/bdflib.c in FreeType before 2.5.4 does not properly handle a missing ENDCHAR record, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted BDF font (CVE-2014-9660). type42/t42parse.c in FreeType before 2.5.4 does not consider that scanning can be incomplete without triggering an error, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (use-after-free) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted Type42 font (CVE-2014-9661). cff/cf2ft.c in FreeType before 2.5.4 does not validate the return values of point-allocation functions, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted OTF font (CVE-2014-9662). The tt_cmap4_validate function in sfnt/ttcmap.c in FreeType before 2.5.4 validates a certain length field before that field's value is completely calculated, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted cmap SFNT table (CVE-2014-9663). FreeType before 2.5.4 does not check for the end of the data during certain parsing actions, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted Type42 font, related to type42/t42parse.c and type1/t1load.c (CVE-2014-9664). The tt_sbit_decoder_init function in sfnt/ttsbit.c in FreeType before 2.5.4 proceeds with a count-to-size association without restricting the count value, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (integer overflow and out-of-bounds read) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted embedded bitmap (CVE-2014-9666). sfnt/ttload.c in FreeType before 2.5.4 proceeds with offset+length calculations without restricting the values, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (integer overflow and out-of-bounds read) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted SFNT table (CVE-2014-9667). Multiple integer overflows in sfnt/ttcmap.c in FreeType before 2.5.4 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read or memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted cmap SFNT table (CVE-2014-9669). Multiple integer signedness errors in the pcf_get_encodings function in pcf/pcfread.c in FreeType before 2.5.4 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (integer overflow, NULL pointer dereference, and application crash) via a crafted PCF file that specifies negative values for the first column and first row (CVE-2014-9670). Off-by-one error in the pcf_get_properties function in pcf/pcfread.c in FreeType before 2.5.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via a crafted PCF file with a 0xffffffff size value that is improperly incremented (CVE-2014-9671). Array index error in the parse_fond function in base/ftmac.c in FreeType before 2.5.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) or obtain sensitive information from process memory via a crafted FOND resource in a Mac font file (CVE-2014-9672). Integer signedness error in the Mac_Read_POST_Resource function in base/ftobjs.c in FreeType before 2.5.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted Mac font (CVE-2014-9673). The Mac_Read_POST_Resource function in base/ftobjs.c in FreeType before 2.5.4 proceeds with adding to length values without validating the original values, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (integer overflow and heap-based buffer overflow) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted Mac font (CVE-2014-9674). bdf/bdflib.c in FreeType before 2.5.4 identifies property names by only verifying that an initial substring is present, which allows remote attackers to discover heap pointer values and bypass the ASLR protection mechanism via a crafted BDF font (CVE-2014-9675).
