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 non-security issues were fixed in tcpdump : - PPKI to Router Protocol: Fix Segmentation Faults and other problems - RPKI to Router Protocol: print strings with fn_printn() - Added a short option '#', same as long option '--number' - nflog, mobile, forces, pptp, AODV, AHCP, IPv6, OSPFv4, RPL, DHCPv6 enhancements/fixes - M3UA decode added. - Added bittok2str(). - A number of unaligned access faults fixed - The -A flag does not consider CR to be printable anymore - fx.lebail took over coverity baby sitting - Default snapshot size increased to 256K for accomodate USB captures These non-security issues were fixed in libpcap : - Provide a -devel-static subpackage that contains the static libraries and all the extra dependencies which are not needed for dynamic linking. - Fix handling of packet count in the TPACKET_V3 inner loop - Filter out duplicate looped back CAN frames. - Fix the handling of loopback filters for IPv6 packets. - Add a link-layer header type for RDS (IEC 62106) groups. - Handle all CAN captures with pcap-linux.c, in cooked mode. - Removes the need for the 'host-endian' link-layer header type. - Have separate DLTs for big-endian and host-endian SocketCAN headers. - Properly check for sock_recv() errors. - Re-impose some of Winsock's limitations on sock_recv(). - Replace sprintf() with pcap_snprintf(). - Fix signature of pcap_stats_ex_remote(). - Have rpcap_remoteact_getsock() return a SOCKET and supply an 'is active' flag. - Clean up {DAG, Septel, Myricom SNF}-only builds. - pcap_create_interface() needs the interface name on Linux. - Clean up hardware time stamp support: the 'any' device does not support any time stamp types. - Recognize 802.1ad nested VLAN tag in vlan filter. - Support for filtering Geneve encapsulated packets. - Fix handling of zones for BPF on Solaris - Added bpf_filter1() with extensions - EBUSY can now be returned by SNFv3 code. - Don't crash on filters testing a non-existent link-layer type field. - Fix sending in non-blocking mode on Linux with memory-mapped capture. - Fix timestamps when reading pcap-ng files on big-endian machines. - Fixes for byte order issues with NFLOG captures - Handle using cooked mode for DLT_NETLINK in activate_new(). 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.

    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2017:1871 : An update for tcpdump is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section. The tcpdump packages contain the tcpdump utility for monitoring network traffic. The tcpdump utility can capture and display the packet headers on a particular network interface or on all interfaces. The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version: tcpdump (4.9.0). (BZ#1422473) Security Fix(es) : * Multiple out of bounds read and integer overflow vulnerabilities were found in tcpdump affecting the decoding of various protocols. An attacker could create a crafted pcap file or send specially crafted packets to the network segment where tcpdump is running in live capture mode (without -w) which could cause it to display incorrect data, crash or enter an infinite loop.

    title openSUSE Security Update : tcpdump / libpcap (openSUSE-2017-557)
  • NASL family CentOS Local Security Checks
    NASL id CENTOS_RHSA-2017-1871.NASL
    description An update for tcpdump is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section. The tcpdump packages contain the tcpdump utility for monitoring network traffic. The tcpdump utility can capture and display the packet headers on a particular network interface or on all interfaces. The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version: tcpdump (4.9.0). (BZ#1422473) Security Fix(es) : * Multiple out of bounds read and integer overflow vulnerabilities were found in tcpdump affecting the decoding of various protocols. An attacker could create a crafted pcap file or send specially crafted packets to the network segment where tcpdump is running in live capture mode (without -w) which could cause it to display incorrect data, crash or enter an infinite loop.
