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.
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.
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||According to the web server's banner, the version of HP System
Management Homepage (SMH) hosted on the remote web server is a version
prior to 7.5.4. It is, therefore, affected by the following
- A denial of service vulnerability exists when processing
an ECParameters structure due to an infinite loop that
occurs when a specified curve is over a malformed binary
polynomial field. A remote attacker can exploit this to
perform a denial of service against any system that
processes public keys, certificate requests, or
certificates. This includes TLS clients and TLS servers
with client authentication enabled. (CVE-2015-1788)
- A denial of service vulnerability exists due to improper
validation of the content and length of the ASN1_TIME
string by the X509_cmp_time() function. A remote
attacker can exploit this, via a malformed certificate
and CRLs of various sizes, to cause a segmentation
fault, resulting in a denial of service condition. TLS
clients that verify CRLs are affected. TLS clients and
servers with client authentication enabled may be
affected if they use custom verification callbacks.
- A NULL pointer dereference flaw exists in the PKCS#7
parsing code due to incorrect handling of missing inner
'EncryptedContent'. This allows a remote attacker, via
specially crafted ASN.1-encoded PKCS#7 blobs with
missing content, to cause a denial of service condition
or other potential unspecified impacts. (CVE-2015-1790)
- A double-free error exists due to a race condition that
occurs when a NewSessionTicket is received by a
multi-threaded client when attempting to reuse a
previous ticket. (CVE-2015-1791)
- A denial of service vulnerability exists in the CMS code
due to an infinite loop that occurs when verifying a
signedData message. A remote attacker can exploit this
to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2015-1792)
- A certificate validation bypass vulnerability exists in
the Security:Encryption subcomponent due to a flaw in
the X509_verify_cert() function in x509_vfy.c that is
triggered when locating alternate certificate chains
when the first attempt to build such a chain fails. A
remote attacker can exploit this, by using a valid leaf
certificate as a certificate authority (CA), to issue
invalid certificates that will bypass authentication.
- A cross-request authentication bypass vulnerability
exists in libcurl due to the use of an existing,
authenticated connection when performing a subsequent
unauthenticated NTLM HTTP request. An attacker can
exploit this to bypass authentication mechanisms.
- A denial of service vulnerability exists in libcurl due
to a flaw in the sanitize_cookie_path() function that is
triggered when handling a cookie path element that
consists of a single double-quote. An attacker can
exploit this to cause the application to crash.
- A cross-request authentication bypass vulnerability
exists in libcurl due to a flaw that is triggered when a
request is 'Negotiate' authenticated, which can cause
the program to treat the entire connection as
authenticated rather than just that specific request. An
attacker can exploit this to bypass authentication
mechanisms for subsequent requests. (CVE-2015-3148)
- A man-in-the-middle vulnerability, known as Logjam,
exists due to a flaw in the SSL/TLS protocol. A remote
attacker can exploit this flaw to downgrade connections
using ephemeral Diffie-Hellman key exchange to 512-bit
export-grade cryptography. (CVE-2015-4000)
- A flaw exists in the multipart_buffer_headers() function
in rfc1867.c due to improper handling of
multipart/form-data in HTTP requests. A remote attacker
can exploit this flaw to cause a consumption of CPU
resources, resulting in a denial of service condition.
- An unspecified flaw exists that allows an authenticated,
remote attacker to impact confidentiality and integrity.
- An unspecified information disclosure vulnerability
exists that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to
gain unauthorized access to information. (CVE-2016-1994)
- An unspecified remote code execution vulnerability
exists that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker
to take complete control of the system. (CVE-2016-1995)
- An unspecified flaw exists that allows a local attacker
to impact confidentiality and integrity. (CVE-2016-1996) |
