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.

[bsc#1025282] Minor security bugs fixed: PR 21147, PR 21148, PR 21149, PR 21150, PR 21151, PR 21155, PR 21158, PR 21159 - Update to binutils 2.28. - Add support for locating separate debug info files using the build-id method, where the separate file has a name based upon the build-id of the original file. - This version of binutils fixes a problem with PowerPC VLE 16A and 16D relocations which were functionally swapped, for example, R_PPC_VLE_HA16A performed like R_PPC_VLE_HA16D while R_PPC_VLE_HA16D performed like R_PPC_VLE_HA16A. This could have been fixed by renumbering relocations, which would keep object files created by an older version of gas compatible with a newer ld. However, that would require an ABI update, affecting other assemblers and linkers that create and process the relocations correctly. It is recommended that all VLE object files be recompiled, but ld can modify the relocations if --vle-reloc-fixup is passed to ld. If the new ld command line option is not used, ld will ld warn on finding relocations inconsistent with the instructions being relocated. - The nm program has a new command line option (--with-version-strings) which will display a symbol's version information, if any, after the symbol's name. - The ARC port of objdump now accepts a -M option to specify the extra instruction class(es) that should be disassembled. - The --remove-section option for objcopy and strip now accepts section patterns starting with an exclamation point to indicate a non-matching section. A non-matching section is removed from the set of sections matched by an earlier --remove-section pattern. - The --only-section option for objcopy now accepts section patterns starting with an exclamation point to indicate a non-matching section. A non-matching section is removed from the set of sections matched by an earlier --only-section pattern. - New --remove-relocations=SECTIONPATTERN option for objcopy and strip. This option can be used to remove sections containing relocations. The SECTIONPATTERN is the section to which the relocations apply, not the relocation section itself. - GAS specific : - Add support for the RISC-V architecture. - Add support for the ARM Cortex-M23 and Cortex-M33 processors. - GNU ld specific : - The EXCLUDE_FILE linker script construct can now be applied outside of the section list in order for the exclusions to apply over all input sections in the list. - Add support for the RISC-V architecture. - The command line option --no-eh-frame-hdr can now be used in ELF based linkers to disable the automatic generation of .eh_frame_hdr sections. - Add --in-implib= to the ARM linker to enable specifying a set of Secure Gateway veneers that must exist in the output import library specified by --out-implib= and the address they must have. As such, --in-implib is only supported in combination with --cmse-implib. - Extended the --out-implib= option, previously restricted to x86 PE targets, to any ELF based target. This allows the generation of an import library for an ELF executable, which can then be used by another application to link against the executable. - GOLD specific : - Add -z bndplt option (x86-64 only) to support Intel MPX. - Add --orphan-handling option. - Add --stub-group-multi option (PowerPC only). - Add --target1-rel, --target1-abs, --target2 options (Arm only). - Add -z stack-size option. - Add --be8 option (Arm only). - Add HIDDEN support in linker scripts. - Add SORT_BY_INIT_PRIORITY support in linker scripts. - Other fixes : - Fix section alignment on .gnu_debuglink. [bso#21193] - Add s390x to gold_archs. - Fix alignment frags for aarch64 (bsc#1003846) - Call ldconfig for libbfd - Fix an assembler problem with clang on ARM. - Restore monotonically increasing section offsets. - Update to binutils 2.27. - Add a configure option, --enable-64-bit-archive, to force use of a 64-bit format when creating an archive symbol index. - Add --elf-stt-common= option to objcopy for ELF targets to control whether to convert common symbols to the STT_COMMON type. - GAS specific : - Default to --enable-compressed-debug-sections=gas for Linux/x86 targets. - Add --no-pad-sections to stop the assembler from padding the end of output sections up to their alignment boundary. - Support for the ARMv8-M architecture has been added to the ARM port. Support for the ARMv8-M Security and DSP Extensions has also been added to the ARM port. - ARC backend accepts .extInstruction, .extCondCode, .extAuxRegister, and .extCoreRegister pseudo-ops that allow an user to define custom instructions, conditional codes, auxiliary and core registers. - Add a configure option --enable-elf-stt-common to decide whether ELF assembler should generate common symbols with the STT_COMMON type by default. Default to no. - New command line option --elf-stt-common= for ELF targets to control whether to generate common symbols with the STT_COMMON type. - Add ability to set section flags and types via numeric values for ELF based targets. - Add a configure option --enable-x86-relax-relocations to decide whether x86 assembler should generate relax relocations by default. Default to yes, except for x86 Solaris targets older than Solaris 12. - New command line option -mrelax-relocations= for x86 target to control whether to generate relax relocations. - New command line option -mfence-as-lock-add=yes for x86 target to encode lfence, mfence and sfence as 'lock addl $0x0, (%[re]sp)'. - Add assembly-time relaxation option for ARC cpus. - Add --with-cpu=TYPE configure option for ARC gas. This allows the default cpu type to be adjusted at configure time. - GOLD specific : - Add a configure option --enable-relro to decide whether -z relro should be enabled by default. Default to yes. - Add support for s390, MIPS, AArch64, and TILE-Gx architectures. - Add support for STT_GNU_IFUNC symbols. - Add support for incremental linking (--incremental). - GNU ld specific : - Add a configure option --enable-relro to decide whether -z relro should be enabled in ELF linker by default. Default to yes for all Linux targets except FRV, HPPA, IA64 and MIPS. - Support for -z noreloc-overflow in the x86-64 ELF linker to disable relocation overflow check. - Add -z common/-z nocommon options for ELF targets to control whether to convert common symbols to the STT_COMMON type during a relocatable link. - Support for -z nodynamic-undefined-weak in the x86 ELF linker, which avoids dynamic relocations against undefined weak symbols in executable. - The NOCROSSREFSTO command was added to the linker script language. - Add --no-apply-dynamic-relocs to the AArch64 linker to do not apply link-time values for dynamic relocations.

CVE-2018-7642: The swap_std_reloc_in function in the Binary File Descriptor (BFD) library (aka libbfd) allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (aout_32_swap_std_reloc_out NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via a crafted ELF file, as demonstrated by objcopy (bsc#1086786). CVE-2018-7568: The parse_die function in the Binary File Descriptor (BFD) library (aka libbfd) allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (integer overflow and application crash) via an ELF file with corrupt dwarf1 debug information, as demonstrated by nm (bsc#1086788). CVE-2018-10373: concat_filename in the Binary File Descriptor (BFD) library (aka libbfd) allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via a crafted binary file, as demonstrated by nm-new (bsc#1090997). CVE-2018-10372: process_cu_tu_index allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer over-read and application crash) via a crafted binary file, as demonstrated by readelf (bsc#1091015). CVE-2018-10535: The ignore_section_sym function in the Binary File Descriptor (BFD) library (aka libbfd) did not validate the output_section pointer in the case of a symtab entry with a 'SECTION' type that has a '0' value, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via a crafted file, as demonstrated by objcopy (bsc#1091365). CVE-2018-10534: The _bfd_XX_bfd_copy_private_bfd_data_common function in the Binary File Descriptor (BFD) library (aka libbfd) processesed a negative Data Directory size with an unbounded loop that increased the value of (external_IMAGE_DEBUG_DIRECTORY) *edd so that the address exceeded its own memory region, resulting in an out-of-bounds memory write, as demonstrated by objcopy copying private info with _bfd_pex64_bfd_copy_private_bfd_data_common in pex64igen.c (bsc#1091368). The update package also includes non-security fixes. See advisory for details. 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.
