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.

These security issues were fixed : - CVE-2016-7161: Heap-based buffer overflow in the .receive callback of xlnx.xps-ethernetlite in QEMU (aka Quick Emulator) allowed attackers to execute arbitrary code on the QEMU host via a large ethlite packet (bsc#1001151). - CVE-2016-7170: OOB stack memory access when processing svga command (bsc#998516). - CVE-2016-7466: xhci memory leakage during device unplug (bsc#1000345). - CVE-2016-7422: NULL pointer dereference in virtqueu_map_desc (bsc#1000346). - CVE-2016-7908: The mcf_fec_do_tx function in hw/net/mcf_fec.c did not properly limit the buffer descriptor count when transmitting packets, which allowed local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (infinite loop and QEMU process crash) via vectors involving a buffer descriptor with a length of 0 and crafted values in bd.flags (bsc#1002550). - CVE-2016-7995: Memory leak in ehci_process_itd (bsc#1003612). - CVE-2016-8576: The xhci_ring_fetch function in hw/usb/hcd-xhci.c allowed local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (infinite loop and QEMU process crash) by leveraging failure to limit the number of link Transfer Request Blocks (TRB) to process (bsc#1003878). - CVE-2016-8578: The v9fs_iov_vunmarshal function in fsdev/9p-iov-marshal.c allowed local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and QEMU process crash) by sending an empty string parameter to a 9P operation (bsc#1003894). - CVE-2016-9105: Memory leakage in v9fs_link (bsc#1007494). - CVE-2016-8577: Memory leak in the v9fs_read function in hw/9pfs/9p.c allowed local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via vectors related to an I/O read operation (bsc#1003893). - CVE-2016-9106: Memory leakage in v9fs_write (bsc#1007495). - CVE-2016-8669: The serial_update_parameters function in hw/char/serial.c allowed local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (divide-by-zero error and QEMU process crash) via vectors involving a value of divider greater than baud base (bsc#1004707). - CVE-2016-7909: The pcnet_rdra_addr function in hw/net/pcnet.c allowed local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (infinite loop and QEMU process crash) by setting the (1) receive or (2) transmit descriptor ring length to 0 (bsc#1002557). - CVE-2016-9101: eepro100 memory leakage whern unplugging a device (bsc#1007391). - CVE-2016-8668: The rocker_io_writel function in hw/net/rocker/rocker.c allowed local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and QEMU process crash) by leveraging failure to limit DMA buffer size (bsc#1004706). - CVE-2016-8910: The rtl8139_cplus_transmit function in hw/net/rtl8139.c allowed local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (infinite loop and CPU consumption) by leveraging failure to limit the ring descriptor count (bsc#1006538). - CVE-2016-8909: The intel_hda_xfer function in hw/audio/intel-hda.c allowed local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (infinite loop and CPU consumption) via an entry with the same value for buffer length and pointer position (bsc#1006536). - CVE-2016-7994: Memory leak in virtio_gpu_resource_create_2d (bsc#1003613). - CVE-2016-9104: Integer overflow leading to OOB access in 9pfs (bsc#1007493). - CVE-2016-8667: The rc4030_write function in hw/dma/rc4030.c allowed local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (divide-by-zero error and QEMU process crash) via a large interval timer reload value (bsc#1004702). - CVE-2016-7907: The pcnet_rdra_addr function in hw/net/pcnet.c allowed local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (infinite loop and QEMU process crash) by setting the (1) receive or (2) transmit descriptor ring length to 0 (bsc#1002549). These non-security issues were fixed : - Change kvm-supported.txt to be per-architecture documentation, stored in the package documentation directory of each per-arch package (bsc#1005353). - Update support doc to include current ARM64 (AArch64) support stance (bsc#1005374). - Fix migration failure when snapshot also has been done (bsc#1008148). - Change package post script udevadm trigger calls to be device specific (bsc#1002116). - Add qmp-commands.txt documentation file back in. It was inadvertently dropped. - Add an x86 cpu option (l3-cache) to specify that an L3 cache is present and another option (cpuid-0xb) to enable the cpuid 0xb leaf (bsc#1007769).
