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 Multiple security issues were discovered in Firefox. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit these to cause a denial of service, read uninitialized memory, obtain sensitive information, bypass same-origin restrictions, bypass CSP protections, bypass mixed content blocking, spoof the addressbar, or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-7826, CVE-2017-7827, CVE-2017-7828, CVE-2017-7830, CVE-2017-7831, CVE-2017-7832, CVE-2017-7833, CVE-2017-7834, CVE-2017-7835, CVE-2017-7837, CVE-2017-7838, CVE-2017-7842) It was discovered that javascript: URLs pasted in to the addressbar would be executed instead of being blocked in some circumstances. If a user were tricked in to copying a specially crafted URL in to the addressbar, an attacker could potentially exploit this to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. (CVE-2017-7839) It was discovered that exported bookmarks do not strip script elements from user-supplied tags. If a user were tricked in to adding specially crafted tags to bookmarks, exporting them and then opening the resulting HTML file, an attacker could potentially exploit this to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. (CVE-2017-7840). Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
