ID CVE-2016-9449
Summary The taxonomy module in Drupal 7.x before 7.52 and 8.x before 8.2.3 might allow remote authenticated users to obtain sensitive information about taxonomy terms by leveraging inconsistent naming of access query tags.

Impact:
Exploitability:
CWE CWE-200
CAPEC
  • 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.
  • Footprinting
    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.
  • Browser Fingerprinting
    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 The Drupal development team reports : Inconsistent name for term access query (Less critical - Drupal 7 and Drupal 8) Drupal provides a mechanism to alter database SELECT queries before they are executed. Contributed and custom modules may use this mechanism to restrict access to certain entities by implementing hook_query_alter() or hook_query_TAG_alter() in order to add additional conditions. Queries can be distinguished by means of query tags. As the documentation on EntityFieldQuery::addTag() suggests, access-tags on entity queries normally follow the form ENTITY_TYPE_access (e.g. node_access). However, the taxonomy module's access query tag predated this system and used term_access as the query tag instead of taxonomy_term_access. As a result, before this security release modules wishing to restrict access to taxonomy terms may have implemented an unsupported tag, or needed to look for both tags (term_access and taxonomy_term_access) in order to be compatible with queries generated both by Drupal core as well as those generated by contributed modules like Entity Reference. Otherwise information on taxonomy terms might have been disclosed to unprivileged users. Incorrect cache context on password reset page (Less critical - Drupal 8) The user password reset form does not specify a proper cache context, which can lead to cache poisoning and unwanted content on the page. Confirmation forms allow external URLs to be injected (Moderately critical - Drupal 7) Under certain circumstances, malicious users could construct a URL to a confirmation form that would trick users into being redirected to a 3rd party website after interacting with the form, thereby exposing the users to potential social engineering attacks. Denial of service via transliterate mechanism (Moderately critical - Drupal 8) A specially crafted URL can cause a denial of service via the transliterate mechanism.

    description The version of Drupal running on the remote web server is 7.x prior to 7.52 or 8.x prior to 8.2.3. It is, therefore, affected by the multiple vulnerabilities : - An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the taxonomy module when using access query tags that are inconsistent with the standard system used by Drupal Core. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to disclose sensitive information regarding taxonomy terms. (CVE-2016-9449) - A flaw exists in the password reset form due to a failure to properly specify a cache context. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to poison the cache, by adding, for example, unwanted content to the page. Note that this issue only affects version 8.x. (CVE-2016-9450) - A cross-site redirection vulnerability exists in the confirmation form due to improper validation of input before returning it to users. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted link, to redirect the user to a website of the attacker's choosing. Note that this issue only affects version 7.x. (CVE-2016-9451) - A denial of service vulnerability exists in the transliterate mechanism when handling specially crafted URLs. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a crash. Note that this issue only affects version 8.x. (CVE-2016-9452) Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
