Impact:
Exploitability:
CWE CWE-284
CAPEC
  • Embedding Scripts within Scripts
    An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities that are brought on by allowing remote hosts to execute scripts. The attacker leverages this capability to execute scripts to execute his/her own script by embedding it within other scripts that the target software is likely to execute. The attacker must have the ability to inject script into script that is likely to be executed. If this is done, then the attacker can potentially launch a variety of probes and attacks against the web server's local environment, in many cases the so-called DMZ, back end resources the web server can communicate with, and other hosts. With the proliferation of intermediaries, such as Web App Firewalls, network devices, and even printers having JVMs and Web servers, there are many locales where an attacker can inject malicious scripts. Since this attack pattern defines scripts within scripts, there are likely privileges to execute said attack on the host. Of course, these attacks are not solely limited to the server side, client side scripts like Ajax and client side JavaScript can contain malicious scripts as well. In general all that is required is for there to be sufficient privileges to execute a script, but not protected against writing.
  • Signature Spoofing by Key Theft
    An attacker obtains an authoritative or reputable signer's private signature key by theft and then uses this key to forge signatures from the original signer to mislead a victim into performing actions that benefit the attacker.

    description The version of Oracle VM VirtualBox installed on the remote host is 5.0.x prior to 5.0.34 or 5.1.x prior to 5.1.16. It is, therefore, affected by an information disclosure vulnerability within the shared folder implementation, specifically in the vbsfPathCheckRootEscape() function, that permits cooperating guests that have write access to the same shared folder to gain access to the file system of the Linux host. An authenticated attacker within a guest VM can exploit this to read arbitrary files on the host. However, exploitation requires that the shared folder is not more than nine levels away from the file system root. Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
