ID CVE-2016-1617
Summary The CSPSource::schemeMatches function in WebKit/Source/core/frame/csp/CSPSource.cpp in the Content Security Policy (CSP) implementation in Blink, as used in Google Chrome before 48.0.2564.82, does not apply http policies to https URLs and does not apply ws policies to wss URLs, which makes it easier for remote attackers to determine whether a specific HSTS web site has been visited by reading a CSP report.

CWE CWE-200
CAPEC
  • 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.

    description Updated chromium-browser packages that fix multiple security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Supplementary. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. Chromium is an open source web browser, powered by WebKit (Blink). Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause Chromium to crash, execute arbitrary code, or disclose sensitive information when visited by the victim. (CVE-2016-1612, CVE-2016-1613, CVE-2016-1614, CVE-2016-1615, CVE-2016-1616, CVE-2016-1617, CVE-2016-1618, CVE-2016-1619, CVE-2016-1620, CVE-2016-2051, CVE-2016-2052) All Chromium users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain Chromium version 48.0.2564.82, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Chromium must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

    description The version of Google Chrome installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 48.0.2564.82. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - A unspecified vulnerability exists in Google V8 when handling compatible receiver checks hidden behind receptors. An attacker can exploit this to have an unspecified impact. No other details are available. (CVE-2016-1612) - A user-after-free error exists in PDFium due to improper invalidation of IPWL_FocusHandler and IPWL_Provider upon destruction. An attacker can exploit this to deference already freed memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1613) - An unspecified vulnerability exists in Blink that is related to the handling of bitmaps. An attacker can exploit this to access sensitive information. No other details are available. (CVE-2016-1614) - An unspecified vulnerability exists in omnibox that is related to origin confusion. An attacker can exploit this to have an unspecified impact. No other details are available. (CVE-2016-1615) - An unspecified vulnerability exists that allows an attacker to spoof a displayed URL. No other details are available. (CVE-2016-1616) - An unspecified vulnerability exists that is related to history sniffing with HSTS and CSP. No other details are available. (CVE-2016-1617) - A flaw exists in Blink due to the weak generation of random numbers by the ARC4-based random number generator. An attacker can exploit this to gain access to sensitive information. No other details are available. (CVE-2016-1618) - A out-of-bounds read error exists in PDFium in file fx_codec_jpx_opj.cpp in the sycc4{22,44}_to_rgb() functions. An attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service by crashing the application linked using the library. (CVE-2016-1619) - Multiple vulnerabilities exist, the most serious of which allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code via a crafted web page. (CVE-2016-1620)
