ID CVE-2015-3754
Summary The private-browsing implementation in WebKit in Apple Safari before 6.2.8, 7.x before 7.1.8, and 8.x before 8.0.8 does not prevent caching of HTTP authentication credentials, which makes it easier for remote attackers to track users via a crafted web site.

Base: 4.3 (as of 18-08-2015 - 08:23)
  • Subverting Environment Variable Values
    The attacker directly or indirectly modifies environment variables used by or controlling the target software. The attacker's goal is to cause the target software to deviate from its expected operation in a manner that benefits the attacker.
  • Footprinting
    An attacker engages in probing and exploration activity to identify constituents and properties of the target. Footprinting is a general term to describe a variety of information gathering techniques, often used by attackers in preparation for some attack. It consists of using tools to learn as much as possible about the composition, configuration, and security mechanisms of the targeted application, system or network. Information that might be collected during a footprinting effort could include open ports, applications and their versions, network topology, and similar information. While footprinting is not intended to be damaging (although certain activities, such as network scans, can sometimes cause disruptions to vulnerable applications inadvertently) it may often pave the way for more damaging attacks.
  • Exploiting Trust in Client (aka Make the Client Invisible)
    An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities in client/server communication channel authentication and data integrity. It leverages the implicit trust a server places in the client, or more importantly, that which the server believes is the client. An attacker executes this type of attack by placing themselves in the communication channel between client and server such that communication directly to the server is possible where the server believes it is communicating only with a valid client. There are numerous variations of this type of attack.
  • Browser Fingerprinting
    An attacker carefully crafts small snippets of Java Script to efficiently detect the type of browser the potential victim is using. Many web-based attacks need prior knowledge of the web browser including the version of browser to ensure successful exploitation of a vulnerability. Having this knowledge allows an attacker to target the victim with attacks that specifically exploit known or zero day weaknesses in the type and version of the browser used by the victim. Automating this process via Java Script as a part of the same delivery system used to exploit the browser is considered more efficient as the attacker can supply a browser fingerprinting method and integrate it with exploit code, all contained in Java Script and in response to the same web page request by the browser.
  • Session Credential Falsification through Prediction
    This attack targets predictable session ID in order to gain privileges. The attacker can predict the session ID used during a transaction to perform spoofing and session hijacking.
  • Reusing Session IDs (aka Session Replay)
    This attack targets the reuse of valid session ID to spoof the target system in order to gain privileges. The attacker tries to reuse a stolen session ID used previously during a transaction to perform spoofing and session hijacking. Another name for this type of attack is Session Replay.
  • Using Slashes in Alternate Encoding
    This attack targets the encoding of the Slash characters. An attacker would try to exploit common filtering problems related to the use of the slashes characters to gain access to resources on the target host. Directory-driven systems, such as file systems and databases, typically use the slash character to indicate traversal between directories or other container components. For murky historical reasons, PCs (and, as a result, Microsoft OSs) choose to use a backslash, whereas the UNIX world typically makes use of the forward slash. The schizophrenic result is that many MS-based systems are required to understand both forms of the slash. This gives the attacker many opportunities to discover and abuse a number of common filtering problems. The goal of this pattern is to discover server software that only applies filters to one version, but not the other.

  • NASL family MacOS X Local Security Checks
    description The version of Apple Safari installed on the remote Mac OS X host is prior to 6.2.8 / 7.1.8 / 8.0.8. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities : - An unspecified flaw exists that allows an attacker to spoof UI elements by using crafted web pages. (CVE-2015-3729) - Multiple memory corruption flaws exist in WebKit due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An attacker can exploit these, by using a crafted web page, to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-3730, CVE-2015-3731 CVE-2015-3732, CVE-2015-3733, CVE-2015-3734, CVE-2015-3735, CVE-2015-3736, CVE-2015-3737, CVE-2015-3738, CVE-2015-3739, CVE-2015-3740, CVE-2015-3741, CVE-2015-3742, CVE-2015-3743, CVE-2015-3744, CVE-2015-3745, CVE-2015-3746, CVE-2015-3747, CVE-2015-3748, CVE-2015-3749) - A security policy bypass vulnerability exists in WebKit related to handling Content Security Policy report requests. An attacker can exploit this to bypass the HTTP Strict Transport Security policy. (CVE-2015-3750) - A security policy bypass vulnerability exists in WebKit that allows websites to use video controls to load images nested in object elements in violation of Content Security Policy directives. (CVE-2015-3751) - An information disclosure vulnerability exists in WebKit related to how cookies are added to Content Security Policy report requests, which results in cookies being exposed to cross-origin requests. Also, cookies set during regular browsing are sent during private browsing. (CVE-2015-3752) - An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the WebKit Canvas component when images are called using URLs that redirect to a data:image resource. An attacker, using a malicious website, can exploit this to disclose image data cross-origin. (CVE-2015-3753) - An information disclosure vulnerability exists in WebKit page loading where the caching of HTTP authentication credentials entered in private browsing mode were carried over into regular browsing, resulting in a user's private browsing history being exposed. (CVE-2015-3754) - A flaw in the WebKit process model allows a malicious website to display an arbitrary URL, which can allow user interface spoofing. (CVE-2015-3755)
