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.

    description The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 42.0.2311.90. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - A cross-origin bypass vulnerability exists due to an unspecified flaw in the HTML parser. (CVE-2015-1235) - A cross-origin bypass vulnerability exists due to a flaw in MediaElementAudioSourceNode.cpp when handling audio content. (CVE-2015-1236) - A use-after-free error exists in render_frame_impl.cc due to improper handling of a frame when it receives messages while detaching. An attacker can exploit this flaw to dereference already freed memory and execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-1237) - An unspecified out-of-bounds write flaw exists in the Skia filters. (CVE-2015-1238) - An out-of-bounds read flaw exists in WebGL due to improper handling of ES3 commands. An attacker can exploit this flaw to disclose memory contents. (CVE-2015-1240) - An unspecified tap-jacking flaw exists when certain tap events aren't preceded by TapDown events. An attacker can exploit this to direct taps to cross-pages and cross-domains. (CVE-2015-1241) - A type confusion error exists in the ReduceTransitionElementsKind() function in hydrogen-check-elimination.cc. An attacker can exploit this error to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-1242) - A flaw exists related to WebSocket connections due to HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) not being strictly enforced. A man-in-the-middle attacker can exploit this flaw to view and manipulate protected communication. (CVE-2015-1244) - A use-after-free error exists in open_pdf_in_reader_view.cc due to improper handling handling the 'Open PDF in Reader' bubble on navigations. An attacker can exploit this flaw to dereference already freed memory and execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-1245) - An unspecified out-of-bounds read flaw exists in Blink. An attacker can exploit this to disclose memory contents. (CVE-2015-1246) - A flaw exists in the OnPageHasOSDD() function in search_engine_tab_helper.cc due to improper handling of URLs for the OpenSearch descriptor. An attacker can exploit this flaw to disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2015-1247) - An unspecified flaw exists that allows an attacker to bypass SafeBrowsing. (CVE-2015-1248) - Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities exist that allow an attacker to have an unspecified impact. (CVE-2015-1249) - Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities exist in V8 that allow an attacker to cause a denial of service and other unspecified impacts. (CVE-2015-3333) - A media permission handling weakness exists due to camera and microphone permissions being merged into a single 'Media' permission. An attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted website, to turn on a victim's camera while the victim believes camera access is prohibited. (CVE-2015-3334) - A flaw exists due to missing address space usage limitation (RLIMIT_AS and RLIMIT_DATA) in the Native Client (NaCl) process. This allows a remote attacker to run a crafted program in the NaCl sandbox and to conduct row-hammer attacks. (CVE-2015-3335) Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
