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.

    description The Xen Project reports : The typical behaviour of singlestepping exceptions is determined at the start of the instruction, with a #DB trap being raised at the end of the instruction. SYSCALL (and SYSRET, although we don't implement it) behave differently because the typical behaviour allows userspace to escalate its privilege. (This difference in behaviour seems to be undocumented.) Xen wrongly raised the exception based on the flags at the start of the instruction. Guest userspace which can invoke the instruction emulator can use this flaw to escalate its privilege to that of the guest kernel.

    NASL id XEN_SERVER_XSA-204.NASL
    description According to its self-reported version number, the Xen hypervisor installed on the remote host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by a privilege elevation vulnerability in the instruction emulator when handling SYSCALL by single-stepping applications. This is due to incorrect exceptions being raised based on the flags at the start of an instruction. A local attacker can exploit this issue to gain elevated privileges on the guest operating system. Please note the following items : - The vulnerability is only exposed to 64-bit x86 HVM guests. - On Xen version 4.6 and earlier, the vulnerability is exposed to all guest user processes, including unprivileged processes in such guests. - On Xen version 4.7 and later, the vulnerability is exposed only to guest user processes granted a degree of privilege (e.g., direct hardware access) by the guest administrator, or else to all user processes when the VM has been explicitly configured with a non-default CPU vendor string (in xm/xl, this would be done with a 'cpuid=' domain config option). - A 64-bit guest kernel which uses an IST for #DB handling will most likely mitigate the issue but will have a single unexpected #DB exception frame to deal with. In practice, this means that Linux is not vulnerable. - The vulnerability is not exposed to 32-bit HVM guests. This is because the emulation bug also matches real hardware behavior, and a 32-bit guest kernel using SYSCALL will already have to be using a Task Gate for handling #DB to avoid being susceptible to an escalation of privilege. - The vulnerability is not exposed to PV guests. - ARM systems are not vulnerable. Note that Nessus has not tested for this vulnerability but has instead relied only on the changeset versions based on the xen.git change log. Nessus did not check guest hardware configurations or if patches were applied manually to the source code before a recompile and reinstall.

A local attacker can exploit this to execute code with elevated privileges on the guest. (CVE-2016-10013) - An out-of-array memory access error exists in the memory_exchange() function within file common/memory.c due to improper checking of XENMEM_exchange input. An attacker on a 64-bit PV guest VM who has administrative privileges can exploit this issue to access arbitrary system memory locations, which can then be potentially used for further compromising the host. (CVE-2017-7228) - A memory leak issue exits due to improper cleanup being performed during guest destruction. An attacker on the guest can exploit this, by repeatedly rebooting, to exhaust memory on the host system, resulting in a denial of service condition.

  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id OPENSUSE-2017-5.NASL
    description This updates xen to version 4.4.4_06 to fix the following issues : - An unprivileged user in a guest could gain guest could escalate privilege to that of the guest kernel, if it had could invoke the instruction emulator. Only 64-bit x86 HVM guest were affected. Linux guest have not been vulnerable. (boo#1016340, CVE-2016-10013) - An unprivileged user in a 64 bit x86 guest could gain information from the host, crash the host or gain privilege of the host (boo#1009107, CVE-2016-9383) - An unprivileged guest process could (unintentionally or maliciously) obtain or ocorrupt sensitive information of other programs in the same guest. Only x86 HVM guests have been affected. The attacker needs to be able to trigger the Xen instruction emulator. (boo#1000106, CVE-2016-7777) - A guest on x86 systems could read small parts of hypervisor stack data (boo#1012651, CVE-2016-9932) - A malicious guest kernel could hang or crash the host system (boo#1014298, CVE-2016-10024) - A malicious guest administrator could escalate their privilege to that of the host. Only affects x86 HVM guests using qemu older version 1.6.0 or using the qemu-xen-traditional. (boo#1011652, CVE-2016-9637) - An unprivileged guest user could escalate privilege to that of the guest administrator on x86 HVM guests, especially on Intel CPUs (boo#1009100, CVE-2016-9386) - An unprivileged guest user could escalate privilege to that of the guest administrator (on AMD CPUs) or crash the system (on Intel CPUs) on 32-bit x86 HVM guests. Only guest operating systems that allowed a new task to start in VM86 mode were affected. (boo#1009103, CVE-2016-9382) - A malicious guest administrator could crash the host on x86 PV guests only (boo#1009104, CVE-2016-9385) - A malicious guest administrator could get privilege of the host emulator process on x86 HVM guests. (boo#1009109, CVE-2016-9381) - A vulnerability in pygrub allowed a malicious guest administrator to obtain the contents of sensitive host files, or even delete those files (boo#1009111, CVE-2016-9379, CVE-2016-9380) - A privileged guest user could cause an infinite loop in the RTL8139 ethernet emulation to consume CPU cycles on the host, causing a DoS situation (boo#1007157, CVE-2016-8910) - A privileged guest user could cause an infinite loop in the intel-hda sound emulation to consume CPU cycles on the host, causing a DoS situation (boo#1007160, CVE-2016-8909) - A privileged guest user could cause a crash of the emulator process on the host by exploiting a divide by zero vulnerability of the JAZZ RC4030 chipset emulation (boo#1005004 CVE-2016-8667) - A privileged guest user could cause a crash of the emulator process on the host by exploiting a divide by zero issue of the 16550A UART emulation (boo#1005005, CVE-2016-8669) - A privileged guest user could cause an infinite loop in the USB xHCI emulation, causing a DoS situation on the host (boo#1004016, CVE-2016-8576) - A privileged guest user could cause an infinite loop in the ColdFire Fash Ethernet Controller emulation, causing a DoS situation on the host (boo#1003030, CVE-2016-7908) - A privileged guest user could cause an infinite loop in the AMD PC-Net II emulation, causing a DoS situation on the host (boo#1003032, CVE-2016-7909) - Cause a reload of clvm in the block-dmmd script to avoid a blocking lvchange call (boo#1002496) - Also unplug SCSI disks in qemu-xen-traditional for upstream unplug protocol. Before a single SCSI storage devices added to HVM guests could appear multiple times in the guest. (boo#953518) - Fix a kernel panic / black screen when trying to boot a XEN kernel on some UEFI firmwares (boo#1000195)

    title SUSE SLES11 Security Update : xen (SUSE-SU-2016:3221-1)
  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_SU-2017-0718-1.NASL
    description This update for xen fixes several issues. These security issues were fixed : - CVE-2016-10155: The virtual hardware watchdog 'wdt_i6300esb' was vulnerable to a memory leakage issue allowing a privileged user to cause a DoS and/or potentially crash the Qemu process on the host (bsc#1024183) - CVE-2017-2620: In CIRRUS_BLTMODE_MEMSYSSRC mode the bitblit copy routine cirrus_bitblt_cputovideo failed to check the memory region, allowing for an out-of-bounds write that allows for privilege escalation (bsc#1024834) - CVE-2017-2615: An error in the bitblt copy operation could have allowed a malicious guest administrator to cause an out of bounds memory access, possibly leading to information disclosure or privilege escalation (bsc#1023004) - CVE-2014-8106: A heap-based buffer overflow in the Cirrus VGA emulator allowed local guest users to execute arbitrary code via vectors related to blit regions (bsc#907805) - CVE-2016-9911: The USB EHCI Emulation support was vulnerable to a memory leakage issue while processing packet data in 'ehci_init_transfer'. A guest user/process could have used this issue to leak host memory, resulting in DoS for the host (bsc#1014507) - CVE-2016-9921: The Cirrus CLGD 54xx VGA Emulator support was vulnerable to a divide by zero issue while copying VGA data. A privileged user inside guest could have used this flaw to crash the process instance on the host, resulting in DoS (bsc#1015169) - CVE-2016-9922: The Cirrus CLGD 54xx VGA Emulator support was vulnerable to a divide by zero issue while copying VGA data. A privileged user inside guest could have used this flaw to crash the process instance on the host, resulting in DoS (bsc#1015169) - CVE-2016-10013: Xen allowed local 64-bit x86 HVM guest OS users to gain privileges by leveraging mishandling of SYSCALL singlestep during emulation (bsc#1016340). - CVE-2016-9932: CMPXCHG8B emulation on x86 systems allowed local HVM guest OS users to obtain sensitive information from host stack memory via a 'supposedly-ignored' operand size prefix (bsc#1012651). - CVE-2016-9101: A memory leak in hw/net/eepro100.c allowed local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (memory consumption and QEMU process crash) by repeatedly unplugging an i8255x (PRO100) NIC device (bsc#1013668) - CVE-2016-9776: The ColdFire Fast Ethernet Controller emulator support was vulnerable to an infinite loop issue while receiving packets in 'mcf_fec_receive'. A privileged user/process inside guest could have used this issue to crash the Qemu process on the host leading to DoS (bsc#1013657) - A malicious guest could have, by frequently rebooting over extended periods of time, run the host system out of memory, resulting in a Denial of Service (DoS) (bsc#1022871) - CVE-2016-10024: Xen allowed local x86 PV guest OS kernel administrators to cause a denial of service (host hang or crash) by modifying the instruction stream asynchronously while performing certain kernel operations (bsc#1014298) The update package also includes non-security fixes. See advisory for details. Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
