CWE CWE-400
CAPEC
  • XML Ping of the Death
    An attacker initiates a resource depletion attack where a large number of small XML messages are delivered at a sufficiently rapid rate to cause a denial of service or crash of the target. Transactions such as repetitive SOAP transactions can deplete resources faster than a simple flooding attack because of the additional resources used by the SOAP protocol and the resources necessary to process SOAP messages. The transactions used are immaterial as long as they cause resource utilization on the target. In other words, this is a normal flooding attack augmented by using messages that will require extra processing on the target.
  • XML Entity Expansion
    An attacker submits an XML document to a target application where the XML document uses nested entity expansion to produce an excessively large output XML. XML allows the definition of macro-like structures that can be used to simplify the creation of complex structures. However, this capability can be abused to create excessive demands on a processor's CPU and memory. A small number of nested expansions can result in an exponential growth in demands on memory.
  • Inducing Account Lockout
    An attacker leverages the security functionality of the system aimed at thwarting potential attacks to launch a denial of service attack against a legitimate system user. Many systems, for instance, implement a password throttling mechanism that locks an account after a certain number of incorrect log in attempts. An attacker can leverage this throttling mechanism to lock a legitimate user out of their own account. The weakness that is being leveraged by an attacker is the very security feature that has been put in place to counteract attacks.
  • Violating Implicit Assumptions Regarding XML Content (aka XML Denial of Service (XDoS))
    XML Denial of Service (XDoS) can be applied to any technology that utilizes XML data. This is, of course, most distributed systems technology including Java, .Net, databases, and so on. XDoS is most closely associated with web services, SOAP, and Rest, because remote service requesters can post malicious XML payloads to the service provider designed to exhaust the service provider's memory, CPU, and/or disk space. The main weakness in XDoS is that the service provider generally must inspect, parse, and validate the XML messages to determine routing, workflow, security considerations, and so on. It is exactly these inspection, parsing, and validation routines that XDoS targets. There are three primary attack vectors that XDoS can navigate Target CPU through recursion: attacker creates a recursive payload and sends to service provider Target memory through jumbo payloads: service provider uses DOM to parse XML. DOM creates in memory representation of XML document, but when document is very large (for example, north of 1 Gb) service provider host may exhaust memory trying to build memory objects. XML Ping of death: attack service provider with numerous small files that clog the system. All of the above attacks exploit the loosely coupled nature of web services, where the service provider has little to no control over the service requester and any messages the service requester sends.

    NASL id WIRESHARK_2_2_8.NASL
    description The version of Wireshark installed on the remote Windows host is 2.0.x prior to 2.0.14 or 2.2.x prior to 2.2.8. It is, therefore, affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities : - A denial of service vulnerability exists in the DAAP dissector, specifically in the dissect_daap_one_tag() function within file epan/dissectors/packet-daap.c. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to exhaust stack resources through uncontrolled recursion. (CVE-2017-9617) - An infinite loop condition exists in the DOCSIS dissector, specifically in the dissect_docsis() function within file plugins/docsis/packet-docsis.c. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted packet or packet trace, to consume available CPU resources, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2017-11406) - A memory allocation issue exists in the MQ dissector, specifically in the reassemble_mq() function within file epan/dissectors/packet-mq.c, due to improper validation of fragment lengths before attempting reassembly. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted packet or packet trace, to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2017-11407) - A flaw exists in the AMQP dissector, specifically in the get_amqp_1_0_value_formatter() function within file epan/dissectors/packet-amqp.c, when decoding lists. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted packet or packet trace, to cause a stack overflow, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2017-11408) - A large loop condition exists in the GPRS LLC dissector, specifically in the llc_gprs_dissect_xid() function within file epan/dissectors/packet-gprs-llc.c, when handling specially crafted packet or trace files. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition. Note that this issue only applies to version 2.0.x. (CVE-2017-11409) Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

    description This update for wireshark to version 2.2.11 fixes several issues. These security issues were fixed : - CVE-2017-13767: The MSDP dissector could have gone into an infinite loop. This was addressed by adding length validation (bsc#1056248) - CVE-2017-13766: The Profinet I/O dissector could have crash with an out-of-bounds write. This was addressed by adding string validation (bsc#1056249) - CVE-2017-13765: The IrCOMM dissector had a buffer over-read and application crash. This was addressed by adding length validation (bsc#1056251) - CVE-2017-9766: PROFINET IO data with a high recursion depth allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (stack exhaustion) in the dissect_IODWriteReq function (bsc#1045341) - CVE-2017-9617: Deeply nested DAAP data may have cause stack exhaustion (uncontrolled recursion) in the dissect_daap_one_tag function in the DAAP dissector (bsc#1044417) - CVE-2017-15192: The BT ATT dissector could crash. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-btatt.c by considering a case where not all of the BTATT packets have the same encapsulation level. (bsc#1062645) - CVE-2017-15193: The MBIM dissector could crash or exhaust system memory. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-mbim.c by changing the memory-allocation approach. (bsc#1062645) - CVE-2017-15191: The DMP dissector could crash. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-dmp.c by validating a string length. (bsc#1062645) - CVE-2017-17083: NetBIOS dissector could crash. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-netbios.c by ensuring that write operations are bounded by the beginning of a buffer. (bsc#1070727) - CVE-2017-17084: IWARP_MPA dissector could crash. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-iwarp-mpa.c by validating a ULPDU length. (bsc#1070727) - CVE-2017-17085: the CIP Safety dissector could crash. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-cipsafety.c by validating the packet length.

Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
