ID CVE-2015-1252
Summary common/partial_circular_buffer.cc in Google Chrome before 43.0.2357.65 does not properly handle wraps, which allows remote attackers to bypass a sandbox protection mechanism or cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds write) via vectors that trigger a write operation with a large amount of data, related to the PartialCircularBuffer::Write and PartialCircularBuffer::DoWrite functions.

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 Mac OS X host is prior to 43.0.2357.65. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - A Use-after-free memory error exists in the SpeechRecognitionClient implementation that allows remote attackers, using a crafted document, to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-1251) - The Write() and DoWrite() methods of the class PartialCircularBuffer do not properly handle wraps. A remote attacker, by using write operations with a large amount of data, can exploit this to bypass the sandbox protection or cause a denial of service. (CVE-2015-1252) - The DOM implementation in Blink does not properly handle SCRIPT elements during adjustment of DOM node locations. A remote attacker, using crafted JavaScript code that appends a child to a SCRIPT element, can exploit this flaw to bypass the same origin policy. (CVE-2015-1253) - The 'core/dom/Document.cpp' in Blink enables the inheritance of the 'designMode' attribute. A remote attacker, using a crafted web page, can utilize this to bypass the same origin policy via the availability of editing. (CVE-2015-1254) - A use-after-free memory error exists in the WebAudio implementation when handling the stop action for an audio track. A remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-1255) - A use-after-free memory error exists in the SVG implementation in Blink, related to the improper handling of a shadow tree for a use element. A remote attacker, using a crafted document, can exploit this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-1256) - The SVG implementation in Blink does not properly handle an insufficient number of values in an feColorMatrix filter. A remote attacker, using a crafted document, can exploit this to cause a denial of service via a container overflow. (CVE-2015-1257) - The libvpx library code was not compiled with an appropriate '--size-limit' value. This allows a remote attacker, using a crafted frame size in VP9 video data, to trigger a negative value for a size field, thus causing a denial of service or possibly having other impact. (CVE-2015-1258) - Google PDFium does not properly initialize memory. A remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service or possibly have other unspecified impact. (CVE-2015-1259) - Multiple use-after-free memory errors exist the WebRTC implementation. A remote attacker can exploit these, by using a crafted JavaScript code that executes upon completion of a getUserMedia request, to cause a denial of service or possibly have other unspecified impact. (CVE-2015-1260) - The file 'HarfBuzzShaper.cpp' in Blink does not properly initialize a certain width field. A remote attacker, using crafted Unicode text, can exploit this to cause a denial of service or have other unspecified impact. (CVE-2015-1262) - The Spellcheck API implementation does not use an HTTPS session for downloading a Hunspell dictionary. A man-in-the-middle attacker, using a crafted file, can exploit this flaw to deliver incorrect spelling suggestions or possibly have other unspecified impact. (CVE-2015-1263) - A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability exists that is related to the Bookmarks feature. A remote attacker, using crafted data, can exploit this to inject arbitrary web script or HTML. (CVE-2015-1264) - Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities exist that allow an attacker to cause a denial of service or possibly have other impact via unknown vectors. (CVE-2015-1265) Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
