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 Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Xen hypervisor. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : CVE-2016-9932 (XSA-200) CMPXCHG8B emulation allows local HVM guest OS users to obtain sensitive information from host stack memory. CVE-2017-7995 Description Xen checks access permissions to MMIO ranges only after accessing them, allowing host PCI device space memory reads. CVE-2017-8903 (XSA-213) Xen mishandles page tables after an IRET hypercall which can lead to arbitrary code execution on the host OS. The vulnerability is only exposed to 64-bit PV guests. CVE-2017-8904 (XSA-214) Xen mishandles the 'contains segment descriptors' property during GNTTABOP_transfer. This might allow PV guest OS users to execute arbitrary code on the host OS. CVE-2017-8905 (XSA-215) Xen mishandles a failsafe callback which might allow PV guest OS users to execute arbitrary code on the host OS. For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 4.1.6.lts1-8. We recommend that you upgrade your xen 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.

    description The Xen Project reports : The x86 instruction CMPXCHG8B is supposed to ignore legacy operand size overrides; it only honors the REX.W override (making it CMPXCHG16B). So, the operand size is always 8 or 16. When support for CMPXCHG16B emulation was added to the instruction emulator, this restriction on the set of possible operand sizes was relied on in some parts of the emulation; but a wrong, fully general, operand size value was used for other parts of the emulation. As a result, if a guest uses a supposedly-ignored operand size prefix, a small amount of hypervisor stack data is leaked to the guests: a 96 bit leak to guests running in 64-bit mode; or, a 32 bit leak to other guests. A malicious unprivileged guest may be able to obtain sensitive information from the host.

    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 an information disclosure vulnerability due to a flaw in the x86 instruction CMPXCHG8B when handling prefixes. This is triggered because legacy operand size overrides are not properly ignored. A guest attacker can exploit this issue to disclose potentially sensitive information from the hypervisor stack of the host system. Please note the following items : - Only x86 systems are affected. ARM systems are not affected. - On Xen version 4.6 and earlier, the vulnerability is exposed to all HVM guest user processes, including unprivileged processes. - On Xen version 4.7, the vulnerability is exposed only to HVM guest user processes granted a degree of privilege (e.g., direct hardware access) by the guest administrator, or else to all user processes when the VM has been explicitly configured with a non-default CPU vendor string (in xm/xl, this would be done with a 'cpuid=' domain config option). Note that Nessus has not tested for this vulnerability but has instead relied only on 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 family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_SU-2017-0718-1.NASL
    description This update for xen fixes several issues. These security issues were fixed : - CVE-2016-10155: The virtual hardware watchdog 'wdt_i6300esb' was vulnerable to a memory leakage issue allowing a privileged user to cause a DoS and/or potentially crash the Qemu process on the host (bsc#1024183) - CVE-2017-2620: In CIRRUS_BLTMODE_MEMSYSSRC mode the bitblit copy routine cirrus_bitblt_cputovideo failed to check the memory region, allowing for an out-of-bounds write that allows for privilege escalation (bsc#1024834) - CVE-2017-2615: An error in the bitblt copy operation could have allowed a malicious guest administrator to cause an out of bounds memory access, possibly leading to information disclosure or privilege escalation (bsc#1023004) - CVE-2014-8106: A heap-based buffer overflow in the Cirrus VGA emulator allowed local guest users to execute arbitrary code via vectors related to blit regions (bsc#907805) - CVE-2016-9911: The USB EHCI Emulation support was vulnerable to a memory leakage issue while processing packet data in 'ehci_init_transfer'. A guest user/process could have used this issue to leak host memory, resulting in DoS for the host (bsc#1014507) - CVE-2016-9921: The Cirrus CLGD 54xx VGA Emulator support was vulnerable to a divide by zero issue while copying VGA data. A privileged user inside guest could have used this flaw to crash the process instance on the host, resulting in DoS (bsc#1015169) - CVE-2016-9922: The Cirrus CLGD 54xx VGA Emulator support was vulnerable to a divide by zero issue while copying VGA data. A privileged user inside guest could have used this flaw to crash the process instance on the host, resulting in DoS (bsc#1015169) - CVE-2016-10013: Xen allowed local 64-bit x86 HVM guest OS users to gain privileges by leveraging mishandling of SYSCALL singlestep during emulation (bsc#1016340). - CVE-2016-9932: CMPXCHG8B emulation on x86 systems allowed local HVM guest OS users to obtain sensitive information from host stack memory via a 'supposedly-ignored' operand size prefix (bsc#1012651). - CVE-2016-9101: A memory leak in hw/net/eepro100.c allowed local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (memory consumption and QEMU process crash) by repeatedly unplugging an i8255x (PRO100) NIC device (bsc#1013668) - CVE-2016-9776: The ColdFire Fast Ethernet Controller emulator support was vulnerable to an infinite loop issue while receiving packets in 'mcf_fec_receive'. A privileged user/process inside guest could have used this issue to crash the Qemu process on the host leading to DoS (bsc#1013657) - A malicious guest could have, by frequently rebooting over extended periods of time, run the host system out of memory, resulting in a Denial of Service (DoS) (bsc#1022871) - CVE-2016-10024: Xen allowed local x86 PV guest OS kernel administrators to cause a denial of service (host hang or crash) by modifying the instruction stream asynchronously while performing certain kernel operations (bsc#1014298) The update package also includes non-security fixes.

    title SUSE SLED12 / SLES12 Security Update : xen (SUSE-SU-2016:3207-1)
  • NASL family Misc.
    NASL id CITRIX_XENSERVER_CTX219378.NASL
    description The version of Citrix XenServer installed on the remote host is missing a security hotfix. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - A flaw exists in x86 instruction CMPXCHG8B due to legacy operand size overrides not being properly ignored when handling prefixes. A guest attacker can exploit this to disclose potentially sensitive information on the host system. Note that the ability to read a small amount of hypervisor memory is restricted to privileged-mode code in all guests except on Citrix XenServer 6.2 SP1 and 6.0.2CC, where the attack may also be performed from non-privileged-mode code in HVM guest VMs. (CVE-2016-9932) - A denial of service vulnerability exists when a guest asynchronously modifies its instruction stream to effect the clearing of EFLAGS.IF. A guest attacker can exploit this to cause the host to hang or crash. (CVE-2016-10024) - A denial of service vulnerability exists due to a NULL pointer dereference flaw that is triggered when the hvmemul_vmfunc() function pointer uses inappropriate NULL checks before indirect function calls. A guest attacker can exploit this to cause the hypervisor to crash. Note that the ability of privileged-mode code in HVM guest VMs to crash the host is restricted to AMD systems running Citrix XenServer 7.0. (CVE-2016-10025)
