CWE CWE-264
CAPEC
  • Accessing, Modifying or Executing Executable Files
    An attack of this type exploits a system's configuration that allows an attacker to either directly access an executable file, for example through shell access; or in a possible worst case allows an attacker to upload a file and then execute it. Web servers, ftp servers, and message oriented middleware systems which have many integration points are particularly vulnerable, because both the programmers and the administrators must be in synch regarding the interfaces and the correct privileges for each interface.
  • Leverage Executable Code in Non-Executable Files
    An attack of this type exploits a system's trust in configuration and resource files, when the executable loads the resource (such as an image file or configuration file) the attacker has modified the file to either execute malicious code directly or manipulate the target process (e.g. application server) to execute based on the malicious configuration parameters. Since systems are increasingly interrelated mashing up resources from local and remote sources the possibility of this attack occurring is high. The attack can be directed at a client system, such as causing buffer overrun through loading seemingly benign image files, as in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-028 where specially crafted JPEG files could cause a buffer overrun once loaded into the browser. Another example targets clients reading pdf files. In this case the attacker simply appends javascript to the end of a legitimate url for a pdf (http://www.gnucitizen.org/blog/danger-danger-danger/) http://path/to/pdf/file.pdf#whatever_name_you_want=javascript:your_code_here The client assumes that they are reading a pdf, but the attacker has modified the resource and loaded executable javascript into the client's browser process. The attack can also target server processes. The attacker edits the resource or configuration file, for example a web.xml file used to configure security permissions for a J2EE app server, adding role name "public" grants all users with the public role the ability to use the administration functionality. The server trusts its configuration file to be correct, but when they are manipulated, the attacker gains full control.
  • Blue Boxing
    This type of attack against older telephone switches and trunks has been around for decades. A tone is sent by an adversary to impersonate a supervisor signal which has the effect of rerouting or usurping command of the line. While the US infrastructure proper may not contain widespread vulnerabilities to this type of attack, many companies are connected globally through call centers and business process outsourcing. These international systems may be operated in countries which have not upgraded Telco infrastructure and so are vulnerable to Blue boxing. Blue boxing is a result of failure on the part of the system to enforce strong authorization for administrative functions. While the infrastructure is different than standard current applications like web applications, there are historical lessons to be learned to upgrade the access control for administrative functions.
  • Restful Privilege Elevation
    Rest uses standard HTTP (Get, Put, Delete) style permissions methods, but these are not necessarily correlated generally with back end programs. Strict interpretation of HTTP get methods means that these HTTP Get services should not be used to delete information on the server, but there is no access control mechanism to back up this logic. This means that unless the services are properly ACL'd and the application's service implementation are following these guidelines then an HTTP request can easily execute a delete or update on the server side. The attacker identifies a HTTP Get URL such as http://victimsite/updateOrder, which calls out to a program to update orders on a database or other resource. The URL is not idempotent so the request can be submitted multiple times by the attacker, additionally, the attacker may be able to exploit the URL published as a Get method that actually performs updates (instead of merely retrieving data). This may result in malicious or inadvertent altering of data on the server.
  • Target Programs with Elevated Privileges
    This attack targets programs running with elevated privileges. The attacker would try to leverage a bug in the running program and get arbitrary code to execute with elevated privileges. For instance an attacker would look for programs that write to the system directories or registry keys (such as HKLM, which stores a number of critical Windows environment variables). These programs are typically running with elevated privileges and have usually not been designed with security in mind. Such programs are excellent exploit targets because they yield lots of power when they break. The malicious user try to execute its code at the same level as a privileged system call.
  • Manipulating Input to File System Calls
    An attacker manipulates inputs to the target software which the target software passes to file system calls in the OS. The goal is to gain access to, and perhaps modify, areas of the file system that the target software did not intend to be accessible.

    description The Xen Project reports : The compiler can emit optimizations in qemu which can lead to double fetch vulnerabilities. Specifically data on the rings shared between qemu and the hypervisor (which the guest under control can obtain mappings of) can be fetched twice (during which time the guest can alter the contents) possibly leading to arbitrary code execution in qemu. Malicious administrators can exploit this vulnerability to take over the qemu process, elevating its privilege to that of the qemu process. In a system not using a device model stub domain (or other techniques for deprivileging qemu), malicious guest administrators can thus elevate their privilege to that of the host.

    description Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Xen hypervisor. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : CVE-2016-9379, CVE-2016-9380 (XSA-198) pygrub, the boot loader emulator, fails to quote (or sanity check) its results when reporting them to its caller. A malicious guest administrator can obtain the contents of sensitive host files CVE-2016-9381 (XSA-197) The compiler can emit optimizations in qemu which can lead to double fetch vulnerabilities. Malicious administrators can exploit this vulnerability to take over the qemu process, elevating its privilege to that of the qemu process. CVE-2016-9382 (XSA-192) LDTR, just like TR, is purely a protected mode facility. Hence even when switching to a VM86 mode task, LDTR loading needs to follow protected mode semantics. A malicious unprivileged guest process can crash or escalate its privilege to that of the guest operating system. CVE-2016-9383 (XSA-195) When Xen needs to emulate some instruction, to efficiently handle the emulation, the memory address and register operand are recalculated internally to Xen. In this process, the high bits of an intermediate expression were discarded, leading to both the memory location and the register operand being wrong. A malicious guest can modify arbitrary memory. CVE-2016-9386 (XSA-191) The Xen x86 emulator erroneously failed to consider the unusability of segments when performing memory accesses. An unprivileged guest user program may be able to elevate its privilege to that of the guest operating system. For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 4.1.6.lts1-4. For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems will be fixed shortly. We recommend that you upgrade your xen packages.

  • NASL family Misc.
    NASL id XEN_SERVER_XSA-198.NASL
    description According to its self-reported version number, the Xen hypervisor installed on the remote host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - A flaw exists in the inject_swint() function in x86_emulate.c due to improper handling of the format of IDT lookups when emulating instructions which generate software interrupts. A guest attacker can exploit this to crash the host, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-9377) - A flaw exists in the svm_inject_trap() function in svm.c due to a failure to properly perform IDT privilege checks when emulating instructions which generate software interrupts. A guest attacker can exploit this to crash the host, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-9378) - A flaw exists in the sniff_netware() function in file tools/pygrub/src/pygrub due to improper handling of string quotes and S-expressions in the bootloader when the S-expressions output format is requested. A guest attacker can exploit this to cause the bootloader configuration file to produce incorrect output, resulting in the disclosure or deletion of files from the host. (CVE-2016-9379) - A flaw exists in the sniff_netware() function in file tools/pygrub/src/pygrub due to improper handling of NULL bytes in the bootloader when the null-delimited output format is requested. A guest attacker can exploit this to cause configuration files to output ambiguous or confusing results, resulting in the disclosure or deletion of files from the host. (CVE-2016-9380) - A double-fetch flaw exists that is triggered when the compiler omits QEMU optimizations. A guest attacker can exploit this to gain elevated privileges on the host. (CVE-2016-9381) - A flaw exists in the hvm_task_switch() function in hvm.c due to improper handling of x86 task switching to VM86 mode. A guest attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or gain elevated privileges within the guest environment. (CVE-2016-9382) - A flaw exists in the x86_emulate() function in x86_emulate.c that allows a guest attacker to cause changes to memory and thereby gain elevated privileges on the host. (CVE-2016-9383) - A flaw exists that is triggered as unused bytes in image metadata are not properly cleared during symbol table loading. This may allow a guest attacker to disclose potentially sensitive information from the host. (CVE-2016-9384) - A flaw exists due to improper clearing of unused bytes in image metadata during symbol table loading. A guest attacker can exploit this to disclose sensitive information from the host. (CVE-2016-9384) - A flaw exists in the x86 segment base write emulation due to a lack of canonical address checks. A guest attacker can exploit this issue to crash the host, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-9385) - A flaw exists in the x86 emulator due to improper validation of the usability of segments when performing memory accesses. A guest attacker can exploit this to gain elevated privileges within the guest environment. (CVE-2016-9386) Note that Nessus has checked the changeset versions based on the xen.git change log. Nessus did not check guest hardware configurations or if patches were applied manually to the source code before a recompile and reinstall.

    NASL id CITRIX_XENSERVER_CTX218775.NASL
    description The version of Citrix XenServer running on the remote host is missing a security hotfix. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - A flaw exists in the sniff_netware() function within file tools/pygrub/src/pygrub when handling string quotes and S-expressions in the bootloader whenever the S-expressions output format is requested. A guest attacker can exploit this to cause the bootloader configuration file to produce incorrect output, resulting in the disclosure or deletion of files from the host. (CVE-2016-9379) - A flaw exists in the sniff_netware() function within file tools/pygrub/src/pygrub when handling NULL bytes in the bootloader whenever the null-delimited output format is requested. A guest attacker can exploit this to cause configuration files to output ambiguous or confusing results, resulting in the disclosure or deletion of files from the host. (CVE-2016-9380) - A double-fetch flaw exists that is triggered when the compiler omits QEMU optimizations. A guest attacker can exploit this to gain elevated privileges on the host. (CVE-2016-9381) - A flaw exists in the hvm_task_switch() function within file arch/x86/hvm/hvm.c due to improper handling of x86 task switching to VM86 mode. A guest attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or gain elevated privileges within the guest environment. (CVE-2016-9382) - A flaw exists in the x86_emulate() function within file arch/x86/x86_emulate/x86_emulate.c that allows a guest attacker to cause changes to memory and thereby gain elevated privileges on the host. (CVE-2016-9383) - A denial of service vulnerability exists in the x86 segment base write emulation that is related to lacking canonical address checks. A local attacker who has administrative rights within a guest can exploit this issue to crash the host. (CVE-2016-9385) - A flaw exists in the x86 emulator due to improper checking of the usability of segments when performing memory accesses. A guest attacker can exploit this to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-9386)
