ID CVE-2010-0743
Summary Multiple format string vulnerabilities in isns.c in (1) Linux SCSI target framework (aka tgt or scsi-target-utils) 1.0.3, 0.9.5, and earlier and (2) iSCSI Enterprise Target (aka iscsitarget) 0.4.16 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (tgtd daemon crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via vectors that involve the isns_attr_query and qry_rsp_handle functions, and are related to (a) client appearance and (b) client disappearance messages.

  • Format String Injection
    An adversary includes formatting characters in a string input field on the target application. Most applications assume that users will provide static text and may respond unpredictably to the presence of formatting character. For example, in certain functions of the C programming languages such as printf, the formatting character %s will print the contents of a memory location expecting this location to identify a string and the formatting character %n prints the number of DWORD written in the memory. An adversary can use this to read or write to memory locations or files, or simply to manipulate the value of the resulting text in unexpected ways. Reading or writing memory may result in program crashes and writing memory could result in the execution of arbitrary code if the adversary can write to the program stack.
  • String Format Overflow in syslog()
    This attack targets the format string vulnerabilities in the syslog() function. An attacker would typically inject malicious input in the format string parameter of the syslog function. This is a common problem, and many public vulnerabilities and associated exploits have been posted.
