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.

  • NASL family Windows
    NASL id MOZILLA_FIREFOX_47.NASL
    description The version of Firefox installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 47. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - Multiple memory corruption issues exist that allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-2815, CVE-2016-2818) - An overflow condition exists that is triggered when handling HTML5 fragments in foreign contexts (e.g., under nodes). An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a heap-based buffer overflow, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-2819) - A use-after-free error exists that is triggered when deleting DOM table elements in 'contenteditable' mode. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to dereference already freed memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-2821) - A spoofing vulnerability exists due to improper handling of SELECT elements. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to spoof the contents of the address bar. (CVE-2016-2822) - An out-of-bounds write error exists in the ANGLE graphics library due to improper size checking while writing to an array during WebGL shader operations. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-2824) - A same-origin bypass vulnerability exists that is triggered when handling location.host property values set after the creation of invalid 'data:' URIs. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to partially bypass same-origin policy protections. (CVE-2016-2825) - A privilege escalation vulnerability exists in the Windows updater utility due to improper extraction of files from MAR archives. A local attacker can exploit this to replace the extracted files, allowing the attacker to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-2826) - A use-after-free error exists that is triggered when destroying the recycle pool of a texture used during the processing of WebGL content. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to dereference already freed memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-2828) - A flaw exists in browser/modules/webrtcUI.jsm that is triggered when handling a large number of permission requests over a small period of time. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause the incorrect icon to be displayed in a given permission request, potentially resulting in a user approving unintended permission requests. (CVE-2016-2829) - A flaw exists that is triggered when handling paired fullscreen and pointerlock requests in combination with closing windows. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to create an unauthorized pointerlock, resulting in a denial of service condition. Additionally, an attacker can exploit this to conduct spoofing and clickjacking attacks. (CVE-2016-2831) - An information disclosure vulnerability exists that is triggered when handling CSS pseudo-classes. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this disclose a list of installed plugins. (CVE-2016-2832) - A Content Security Policy (CSP) bypass exists that is triggered when handling specially crafted cross-domain Java applets. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to bypass the CSP and conduct cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2016-2833) - Multiple unspecified flaws exist in the Mozilla Network Security Services (NSS) component that allow an attacker to have an unspecified impact. (CVE-2016-2834)

    description Multiple security issues have been found in the Mozilla Firefox web browser: Multiple memory safety errors, buffer overflows and other implementation errors may lead to the execution of arbitrary code or spoofing. Wait, Firefox? No more references to Iceweasel? That's right, Debian no longer applies a custom branding. Please see these links for further information: https://glandium.org/blog/?p=3622, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozilla_software_rebranded_by_Debian Debian follows the extended support releases (ESR) of Firefox. Support for the 38.x series has ended, so starting with this update we're now following the 45.x releases and this update to the next ESR is also the point where we reapply the original branding. Transition packages for the iceweasel packages are provided which automatically upgrade to the new version. Since new binary packages need to be installed, make sure to allow that in your upgrade procedure (e.g. by using 'apt-get dist-upgrade' instead of 'apt-get upgrade').

    description Multiple security issues have been found in the Mozilla Firefox web browser: Multiple memory safety errors, buffer overflows and other implementation errors may lead to the execution of arbitrary code or spoofing. Wait, Firefox? No more references to Iceweasel? That's right, Debian no longer applies a custom branding. Please see these links for further information: https://glandium.org/blog/?p=3622 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozilla_software_rebranded_by_Debian Debian follows the extended support releases (ESR) of Firefox. Support for the 38.x series has ended, so starting with this update we're now following the 45.x releases and this update to the next ESR is also the point where we reapply the original branding. Transition packages for the iceweasel packages are provided which automatically upgrade to the new version. Since new binary packages need to be installed, make sure to allow that in your upgrade procedure (e.g. by using 'apt-get dist-upgrade' instead of 'apt-get upgrade'). For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 45.2.0esr-1~deb7u1. We recommend that you upgrade your firefox-esr packages. NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

  • NASL family MacOS X Local Security Checks
    NASL id MACOSX_FIREFOX_47.NASL
    description The version of Firefox installed on the remote Mac OS X host is prior to 47. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - Multiple memory corruption issues exist that allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-2815, CVE-2016-2818) - An overflow condition exists that is triggered when handling HTML5 fragments in foreign contexts (e.g., under nodes). An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a heap-based buffer overflow, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-2819) - A use-after-free error exists that is triggered when deleting DOM table elements in 'contenteditable' mode. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to dereference already freed memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-2821) - A spoofing vulnerability exists due to improper handling of SELECT elements. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to spoof the contents of the address bar. (CVE-2016-2822) - A same-origin bypass vulnerability exists that is triggered when handling location.host property values set after the creation of invalid 'data:' URIs. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to partially bypass same-origin policy protections. (CVE-2016-2825) - A use-after-free error exists that is triggered when destroying the recycle pool of a texture used during the processing of WebGL content. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to dereference already freed memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-2828) - A flaw exists in browser/modules/webrtcUI.jsm that is triggered when handling a large number of permission requests over a small period of time. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause the incorrect icon to be displayed in a given permission request, potentially resulting in a user approving unintended permission requests. (CVE-2016-2829) - A flaw exists that is triggered when handling paired fullscreen and pointerlock requests in combination with closing windows. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to create an unauthorized pointerlock, resulting in a denial of service condition. Additionally, an attacker can exploit this to conduct spoofing and clickjacking attacks. (CVE-2016-2831) - An information disclosure vulnerability exists that is triggered when handling CSS pseudo-classes. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this disclose a list of installed plugins. (CVE-2016-2832) - A Content Security Policy (CSP) bypass exists that is triggered when handling specially crafted cross-domain Java applets. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to bypass the CSP and conduct cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2016-2833) - Multiple unspecified flaws exist in the Mozilla Network Security Services (NSS) component that allow an attacker to have an unspecified impact. (CVE-2016-2834)
