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.

    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP1 LTS kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2017-15649: net/packet/af_packet.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges via crafted system calls that trigger mishandling of packet_fanout data structures, because of a race condition (involving fanout_add and packet_do_bind) that leads to a use-after-free, a different vulnerability than CVE-2017-6346 (bnc#1064388). - CVE-2017-13080: Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA and WPA2) allowed reinstallation of the Group Temporal Key (GTK) during the group key handshake, allowing an attacker within radio range to replay frames from access points to clients (bnc#1063667). - CVE-2017-15274: security/keys/keyctl.c in the Linux kernel did not consider the case of a NULL payload in conjunction with a nonzero length value, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted add_key or keyctl system call, a different vulnerability than CVE-2017-12192 (bnc#1045327). - CVE-2017-15265: Use-after-free vulnerability in the Linux kernel allowed local users to have unspecified impact via vectors related to /dev/snd/seq (bnc#1062520). - CVE-2017-1000365: The Linux Kernel imposes a size restriction on the arguments and environmental strings passed through RLIMIT_STACK/RLIM_INFINITY (1/4 of the size), but did not take the argument and environment pointers into account, which allowed attackers to bypass this limitation. (bnc#1039354). - CVE-2017-12153: A security flaw was discovered in the nl80211_set_rekey_data() function in net/wireless/nl80211.c in the Linux kernel This function did not check whether the required attributes are present in a Netlink request. This request can be issued by a user with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability and may result in a NULL pointer dereference and system crash (bnc#1058410). - CVE-2017-12154: The prepare_vmcs02 function in arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the Linux kernel did not ensure that the 'CR8-load exiting' and 'CR8-store exiting' L0 vmcs02 controls exist in cases where L1 omits the 'use TPR shadow' vmcs12 control, which allowed KVM L2 guest OS users to obtain read and write access to the hardware CR8 register (bnc#1058507). - CVE-2017-14106: The tcp_disconnect function in net/ipv4/tcp.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (__tcp_select_window divide-by-zero error and system crash) by triggering a disconnect within a certain tcp_recvmsg code path (bnc#1056982). - CVE-2017-14140: The move_pages system call in mm/migrate.c in the Linux kernel doesn't check the effective uid of the target process, enabling a local attacker to learn the memory layout of a setuid executable despite ASLR (bnc#1057179). - CVE-2017-14051: An integer overflow in the qla2x00_sysfs_write_optrom_ctl function in drivers/scsi/qla2xxx/qla_attr.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) by leveraging root access (bnc#1056588). - CVE-2017-10661: Race condition in fs/timerfd.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (list corruption or use-after-free) via simultaneous file-descriptor operations that leverage improper might_cancel queueing (bnc#1053152). - CVE-2017-12762: In /drivers/isdn/i4l/isdn_net.c: A user-controlled buffer is copied into a local buffer of constant size using strcpy without a length check which can cause a buffer overflow. (bnc#1053148). - CVE-2017-8831: The saa7164_bus_get function in drivers/media/pci/saa7164/saa7164-bus.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds array access) or possibly have unspecified other impact by changing a certain sequence-number value, aka a 'double fetch' vulnerability (bnc#1037994). - CVE-2017-7482: A potential memory corruption was fixed in decoding of krb5 principals in the kernels kerberos handling. (bnc#1046107). - CVE-2017-7542: The ip6_find_1stfragopt function in net/ipv6/output_core.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (integer overflow and infinite loop) by leveraging the ability to open a raw socket (bnc#1049882). - CVE-2017-11176: The mq_notify function in the Linux kernel did not set the sock pointer to NULL upon entry into the retry logic. During a user-space close of a Netlink socket, it allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (use-after-free) or possibly have unspecified other impact (bnc#1048275). - CVE-2017-7541: The brcmf_cfg80211_mgmt_tx function in drivers/net/wireless/broadcom/brcm80211/brcmfmac/cfg8021 1.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (buffer overflow and system crash) or possibly gain privileges via a crafted NL80211_CMD_FRAME Netlink packet (bnc#1049645). - CVE-2017-7518: The Linux kernel was vulnerable to an incorrect debug exception(#DB) error. It could occur while emulating a syscall instruction and potentially lead to guest privilege escalation. (bsc#1045922). - CVE-2017-8924: The edge_bulk_in_callback function in drivers/usb/serial/io_ti.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to obtain sensitive information (in the dmesg ringbuffer and syslog) from uninitialized kernel memory by using a crafted USB device (posing as an io_ti USB serial device) to trigger an integer underflow (bnc#1037182 bsc#1038982). - CVE-2017-8925: The omninet_open function in drivers/usb/serial/omninet.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (tty exhaustion) by leveraging reference count mishandling (bnc#1037183 bsc#1038981). - CVE-2017-1000380: sound/core/timer.c in the Linux kernel was vulnerable to a data race in the ALSA /dev/snd/timer driver resulting in local users being able to read information belonging to other users, i.e., uninitialized memory contents might have been disclosed when a read and an ioctl happen at the same time (bnc#1044125). - CVE-2017-9242: The __ip6_append_data function in net/ipv6/ip6_output.c in the Linux kernel is too late in checking whether an overwrite of an skb data structure may occur, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) via crafted system calls (bnc#1041431). - CVE-2017-1000363: Linux drivers/char/lp.c Out-of-Bounds Write. Due to a missing bounds check, and the fact that parport_ptr integer is static, a 'secure boot' kernel command line adversary (could happen due to bootloader vulns, e.g. Google Nexus 6's CVE-2016-10277, where due to a vulnerability the adversary has partial control over the command line) could overflow the parport_nr array in the following code, by appending many (>LP_NO) 'lp=none' arguments to the command line (bnc#1039456). - CVE-2017-9076: The dccp_v6_request_recv_sock function in net/dccp/ipv6.c in the Linux kernel mishandled inheritance, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted system calls, a related issue to CVE-2017-8890 (bnc#1039885). - CVE-2017-9077: The tcp_v6_syn_recv_sock function in net/ipv6/tcp_ipv6.c in the Linux kernel mishandled inheritance, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted system calls, a related issue to CVE-2017-8890 (bnc#1040069). - CVE-2017-9075: The sctp_v6_create_accept_sk function in net/sctp/ipv6.c in the Linux kernel mishandled inheritance, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted system calls, a related issue to CVE-2017-8890 (bnc#1039883). - CVE-2017-9074: The IPv6 fragmentation implementation in the Linux kernel did not consider that the nexthdr field may be associated with an invalid option, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and BUG) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted socket and send system calls (bnc#1039882). - CVE-2017-7487: The ipxitf_ioctl function in net/ipx/af_ipx.c in the Linux kernel mishandled reference counts, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (use-after-free) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a failed SIOCGIFADDR ioctl call for an IPX interface (bnc#1038879). - CVE-2017-8890: The inet_csk_clone_lock function in net/ipv4/inet_connection_sock.c in the Linux kernel allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (double free) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging use of the accept system call (bnc#1038544). - CVE-2017-7889: The mm subsystem in the Linux kernel did not properly enforce the CONFIG_STRICT_DEVMEM protection mechanism, which allowed local users to read or write to kernel memory locations in the first megabyte (and bypass slab-allocation access restrictions) via an application that opens the /dev/mem file, related to arch/x86/mm/init.c and drivers/char/mem.c (bnc#1034405). The following new features were implemented : - the r8152 network driver was updated to support Realtek RTL8152/RTL8153 Based USB Ethernet Adapters (fate#321482) 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.

    NASL id VIRTUOZZO_VZA-2017-076.NASL
    description According to the versions of the parallels-server-bm-release / vzkernel / etc packages installed, the Virtuozzo installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities : - An integer overflow vulnerability in ip6_find_1stfragopt() function was found. A local attacker that has privileges (of CAP_NET_RAW) to open raw socket can cause an infinite loop inside the ip6_find_1stfragopt() function. - Race condition in fs/timerfd.c in the Linux kernel before 4.10.15 allows local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (list corruption or use-after-free) via simultaneous file-descriptor operations that leverage improper might_cancel queueing. - A race condition issue leading to a use-after-free flaw was found in the way the raw packet sockets are implemented in the Linux kernel networking subsystem handling synchronization. A local user able to open a raw packet socket (requires the CAP_NET_RAW capability) could use this flaw to elevate their privileges on the system. - Andrey Konovalov discovered a race condition in the UDP Fragmentation Offload (UFO) code in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code. - Kernel memory corruption due to a buffer overflow was found in brcmf_cfg80211_mgmt_tx() function in Linux kernels from v3.9-rc1 to v4.13-rc1. The vulnerability can be triggered by sending a crafted NL80211_CMD_FRAME packet via netlink. This flaw is unlikely to be triggered remotely as certain userspace code is needed for this. An unprivileged local user could use this flaw to induce kernel memory corruption on the system, leading to a crash. Due to the nature of the flaw, privilege escalation cannot be fully ruled out, although we believe it is unlikely. - The mq_notify function in the Linux kernel through 4.11.9 does not set the sock pointer to NULL upon entry into the retry logic. During a user-space close of a Netlink socket, it allows attackers to possibly cause a situation where a value may be used after being freed (use after free) which may lead to memory corruption or other unspecified other impact. - The tcp_disconnect function in net/ipv4/tcp.c in the Linux kernel before 4.12 allows local users to cause a denial of service (__tcp_select_window divide-by-zero error and system crash) by triggering a disconnect within a certain tcp_recvmsg code path. Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Virtuozzo security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    description Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a privilege escalation, denial of service or information leaks. - CVE-2017-7346 Li Qiang discovered that the DRM driver for VMware virtual GPUs does not properly check user-controlled values in the vmw_surface_define_ioctl() functions for upper limits. A local user can take advantage of this flaw to cause a denial of service. - CVE-2017-7482 Shi Lei discovered that RxRPC Kerberos 5 ticket handling code does not properly verify metadata, leading to information disclosure, denial of service or potentially execution of arbitrary code. - CVE-2017-7533 Fan Wu and Shixiong Zhao discovered a race condition between inotify events and VFS rename operations allowing an unprivileged local attacker to cause a denial of service or escalate privileges. - CVE-2017-7541 A buffer overflow flaw in the Broadcom IEEE802.11n PCIe SoftMAC WLAN driver could allow a local user to cause kernel memory corruption, leading to a denial of service or potentially privilege escalation. - CVE-2017-7542 An integer overflow vulnerability in the ip6_find_1stfragopt() function was found allowing a local attacker with privileges to open raw sockets to cause a denial of service. - CVE-2017-9605 Murray McAllister discovered that the DRM driver for VMware virtual GPUs does not properly initialize memory, potentially allowing a local attacker to obtain sensitive information from uninitialized kernel memory via a crafted ioctl call. - CVE-2017-10810 Li Qiang discovered a memory leak flaw within the VirtIO GPU driver resulting in denial of service (memory consumption). - CVE-2017-10911 / XSA-216 Anthony Perard of Citrix discovered an information leak flaw in Xen blkif response handling, allowing a malicious unprivileged guest to obtain sensitive information from the host or other guests. - CVE-2017-11176 It was discovered that the mq_notify() function does not set the sock pointer to NULL upon entry into the retry logic. An attacker can take advantage of this flaw during a user-space close of a Netlink socket to cause a denial of service or potentially cause other impact. - CVE-2017-1000365 It was discovered that argument and environment pointers are not taken properly into account to the imposed size restrictions on arguments and environmental strings passed through RLIMIT_STACK/RLIMIT_INFINITY. A local attacker can take advantage of this flaw in conjunction with other flaws to execute arbitrary code.
