ID CVE-2018-2694
Summary Vulnerability in the Oracle VM VirtualBox component of Oracle Virtualization (subcomponent: Core). Supported versions that are affected are Prior to 5.1.32 and Prior to 5.2.6. Easily exploitable vulnerability allows low privileged attacker with logon to the infrastructure where Oracle VM VirtualBox executes to compromise Oracle VM VirtualBox. While the vulnerability is in Oracle VM VirtualBox, attacks may significantly impact additional products. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in takeover of Oracle VM VirtualBox. CVSS 3.0 Base Score 8.8 (Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability impacts). CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:H).
Vulnerable Configurations
  • Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.1.0
  • Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.1.2
  • Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.1.4
  • Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.1.6
  • Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.1.8
  • Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.1.10
  • Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.1.14
  • Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.1.18
Base: 4.1
  • 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 running on the remote host is 5.1.x prior to 5.1.32 or 5.2.x prior to 5.2.6. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as noted in the January 2018 Critical Patch Update advisory. Please consult the CVRF details for the applicable CVEs for additional information. Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
