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 Mozilla Project reports : Security researcher Abhishek Arya (Inferno) of the Google Chrome Security Team used the Address Sanitizer tool to discover two buffer overflow issues in the Libvpx library used for WebM video when decoding a malformed WebM video file. These buffer overflows result in potentially exploitable crashes.

(CVE-2015-4473) - Multiple memory corruption issues exist that allow a remote attacker, via a specially crafted web page, to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-4474) - An out-of-bounds read error exists in the PlayFromAudioQueue() function due to improper handling of mismatched sample formats. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted MP3 file, to disclose memory contents or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-4475) - A use-after-free error exists in the Web Audio API during MediaStream playback. A remote attacker can exploit this to dereference already freed memory, resulting in the potential execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-4477) - A same-origin policy bypass vulnerability exists due to non-configurable properties being redefined in violation of the ECMAScript 6 standard during JSON parsing. A remote attacker can exploit this, by editing these properties to arbitrary values, to bypass the same-origin policy. (CVE-2015-4478) - Multiple integer overflow conditions exist due to improper validation of user-supplied input when handling 'saio' chunks in MPEG4 video.

(CVE-2015-4484) - A heap-based buffer overflow condition exists in the resize_context_buffers() function due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this, via specially crafted WebM content, to cause a heap-based buffer overflow, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-4485) - A heap-based buffer overflow condition exists in the decrease_ref_count() function due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this, via specially crafted WebM content, to cause a heap-based buffer overflow, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-4486) - A buffer overflow condition exists in the ReplacePrep() function. A remote attacker can exploit this to cause a buffer overflow, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-4487) - A use-after-free error exists in the operator=() function. An attacker can exploit this to dereference already freed memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-4488) - A memory corruption issue exists in the nsTArray_Impl() function due to improper validation of user-supplied input during self-assignment. An attacker can exploit this to corrupt memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-4489) - A use-after-free error exists in the XMLHttpRequest::Open() function due to improper handling of recursive calls. An attacker can exploit this to dereference already freed memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-4492) - An integer underflow condition exists in the bundled libstagefright library. An attacker can exploit this to crash the application, resulting in a denial of service condition.

Also the Mozilla NSS library switched its CKBI API from 1.98 to 2.4, which is what Firefox 38ESR uses.

Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
