Impact:
Exploitability:
CWE CWE-200
CAPEC
  • Subverting Environment Variable Values
    The attacker directly or indirectly modifies environment variables used by or controlling the target software. The attacker's goal is to cause the target software to deviate from its expected operation in a manner that benefits the attacker.
  • Footprinting
    An attacker engages in probing and exploration activity to identify constituents and properties of the target. Footprinting is a general term to describe a variety of information gathering techniques, often used by attackers in preparation for some attack. It consists of using tools to learn as much as possible about the composition, configuration, and security mechanisms of the targeted application, system or network. Information that might be collected during a footprinting effort could include open ports, applications and their versions, network topology, and similar information. While footprinting is not intended to be damaging (although certain activities, such as network scans, can sometimes cause disruptions to vulnerable applications inadvertently) it may often pave the way for more damaging attacks.
  • Exploiting Trust in Client (aka Make the Client Invisible)
    An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities in client/server communication channel authentication and data integrity. It leverages the implicit trust a server places in the client, or more importantly, that which the server believes is the client. An attacker executes this type of attack by placing themselves in the communication channel between client and server such that communication directly to the server is possible where the server believes it is communicating only with a valid client. There are numerous variations of this type of attack.
  • Browser Fingerprinting
    An attacker carefully crafts small snippets of Java Script to efficiently detect the type of browser the potential victim is using. Many web-based attacks need prior knowledge of the web browser including the version of browser to ensure successful exploitation of a vulnerability. Having this knowledge allows an attacker to target the victim with attacks that specifically exploit known or zero day weaknesses in the type and version of the browser used by the victim. Automating this process via Java Script as a part of the same delivery system used to exploit the browser is considered more efficient as the attacker can supply a browser fingerprinting method and integrate it with exploit code, all contained in Java Script and in response to the same web page request by the browser.
  • Session Credential Falsification through Prediction
    This attack targets predictable session ID in order to gain privileges. The attacker can predict the session ID used during a transaction to perform spoofing and session hijacking.
  • Reusing Session IDs (aka Session Replay)
    This attack targets the reuse of valid session ID to spoof the target system in order to gain privileges. The attacker tries to reuse a stolen session ID used previously during a transaction to perform spoofing and session hijacking. Another name for this type of attack is Session Replay.
  • Using Slashes in Alternate Encoding
    This attack targets the encoding of the Slash characters. An attacker would try to exploit common filtering problems related to the use of the slashes characters to gain access to resources on the target host. Directory-driven systems, such as file systems and databases, typically use the slash character to indicate traversal between directories or other container components. For murky historical reasons, PCs (and, as a result, Microsoft OSs) choose to use a backslash, whereas the UNIX world typically makes use of the forward slash. The schizophrenic result is that many MS-based systems are required to understand both forms of the slash. This gives the attacker many opportunities to discover and abuse a number of common filtering problems. The goal of this pattern is to discover server software that only applies filters to one version, but not the other.

    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP3 LTSS kernel received a roll up update to fix lots of moderate security issues and several bugs. The Following security issues have been fixed : CVE-2012-4530: The load_script function in fs/binfmt_script.c in the Linux kernel did not properly handle recursion, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a crafted application. CVE-2011-2494: kernel/taskstats.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to obtain sensitive I/O statistics by sending taskstats commands to a netlink socket, as demonstrated by discovering the length of another users password. CVE-2013-2234: The (1) key_notify_sa_flush and (2) key_notify_policy_flush functions in net/key/af_key.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize certain structure members, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel heap memory by reading a broadcast message from the notify interface of an IPSec key_socket. CVE-2013-2237: The key_notify_policy_flush function in net/key/af_key.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a certain structure member, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel heap memory by reading a broadcast message from the notify_policy interface of an IPSec key_socket.

    description It was found that a deadlock could occur in the Out of Memory (OOM) killer. A process could trigger this deadlock by consuming a large amount of memory, and then causing request_module() to be called. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service (excessive memory consumption). (CVE-2012-4398) A flaw was found in the way the KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) subsystem handled guests attempting to run with the X86_CR4_OSXSAVE CPU feature flag set. On hosts without the XSAVE CPU feature, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the host system. (The 'grep --color xsave /proc/cpuinfo' command can be used to verify if your system has the XSAVE CPU feature.) (CVE-2012-4461) A memory disclosure flaw was found in the way the load_script() function in the binfmt_script binary format handler handled excessive recursions. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to leak kernel stack memory to user-space by executing specially crafted scripts. (CVE-2012-4530) A race condition was found in the way the Linux kernel's ptrace implementation handled PTRACE_SETREGS requests when the debuggee was woken due to a SIGKILL signal instead of being stopped. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to escalate their privileges. (CVE-2013-0871)

    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2013-0566.NASL
    description Updated kernel-rt packages that fix several security issues and multiple bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2.3. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. The kernel-rt packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. This update fixes the following security issues : * A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way UTF-8 characters were converted to UTF-16 in the utf8s_to_utf16s() function of the Linux kernel's FAT file system implementation. A local user able to mount a FAT file system with the 'utf8=1' option could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, to escalate their privileges. (CVE-2013-1773, Important) * It was found that the RHSA-2012:0333 update did not correctly fix the CVE-2011-4131 issue. A malicious Network File System version 4 (NFSv4) server could return a crafted reply to a GETACL request, causing a denial of service on the client. (CVE-2012-2375, Moderate) * A memory disclosure flaw was found in the way the load_script() function in the binfmt_script binary format handler handled excessive recursions. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to leak kernel stack memory to user-space by executing specially crafted scripts. (CVE-2012-4530, Low) * A flaw was found in the way file permission checks for the '/dev/kmsg' file were performed in restricted root environments (for example, when using a capability-based security model). A local user able to write to this file could cause a denial of service. (CVE-2013-1772, Low) The CVE-2012-2375 issue was discovered by Jian Li of Red Hat. This update also fixes multiple bugs. Documentation for these changes will be available shortly from the Technical Notes document linked to in the References section. Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which upgrade the kernel-rt kernel to version kernel-rt-3.6.11-rt28, correct these issues, and fix the bugs noted in the Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2 Technical Notes. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

(CVE-2013-0871) - Avoid side channel information leaks from the ptys via ptmx, which allowed local attackers to guess keypresses. (CVE-2013-0160) - Avoid leaving bprm->interp on the stack which might have leaked information from the kernel to userland attackers. (CVE-2012-4530) - The msr_open function in arch/x86/kernel/msr.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to bypass intended capability restrictions by executing a crafted application as root, as demonstrated by msr32.c. (CVE-2013-0268) - The Xen netback functionality in the Linux kernel allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (loop) by triggering ring pointer corruption. (CVE-2013-0216) - The pciback_enable_msi function in the PCI backend driver (drivers/xen/pciback/conf_space_capability_msi.c) in Xen for the Linux kernel allowed guest OS users with PCI device access to cause a denial of service via a large number of kernel log messages. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third-party information.

    description Updated kernel packages that fix three security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. This update fixes the following security issues : * It was found that a deadlock could occur in the Out of Memory (OOM) killer. A process could trigger this deadlock by consuming a large amount of memory, and then causing request_module() to be called. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service (excessive memory consumption). (CVE-2012-4398, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the way the KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) subsystem handled guests attempting to run with the X86_CR4_OSXSAVE CPU feature flag set. On hosts without the XSAVE CPU feature, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the host system. (The 'grep --color xsave /proc/cpuinfo' command can be used to verify if your system has the XSAVE CPU feature.) (CVE-2012-4461, Moderate) * A memory disclosure flaw was found in the way the load_script() function in the binfmt_script binary format handler handled excessive recursions. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to leak kernel stack memory to user-space by executing specially crafted scripts. (CVE-2012-4530, Low) Red Hat would like to thank Tetsuo Handa for reporting CVE-2012-4398, and Jon Howell for reporting CVE-2012-4461. This update also fixes several bugs. Documentation for these changes will be available shortly from the Technical Notes document linked to in the References section. Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues, and fix the bugs noted in the Technical Notes. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

    NASL id SUSE_SU-2013-0674-1.NASL
    description This Linux kernel update fixes various security issues and bugs in the SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP4 kernel. The following security issues have been fixed : CVE-2013-0871: A race condition in ptrace(2) could be used by local attackers to crash the kernel and/or execute code in kernel context. CVE-2013-0160: Avoid side channel information leaks from the ptys via ptmx, which allowed local attackers to guess keypresses. CVE-2012-4530: Avoid leaving bprm->interp on the stack which might have leaked information from the kernel to userland attackers. CVE-2013-0268: The msr_open function in arch/x86/kernel/msr.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to bypass intended capability restrictions by executing a crafted application as root, as demonstrated by msr32.c. CVE-2013-0216: The Xen netback functionality in the Linux kernel allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (loop) by triggering ring pointer corruption. CVE-2013-0231: The pciback_enable_msi function in the PCI backend driver (drivers/xen/pciback/conf_space_capability_msi.c) in Xen for the Linux kernel allowed guest OS users with PCI device access to cause a denial of service via a large number of kernel log messages. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third-party information. Also the following non-security bugs have been fixed : S/390 : - s390x: tty struct used after free (bnc#809692, LTC#90216). - s390x/kernel: sched_clock() overflow (bnc#799611, LTC#87978). - qeth: set new mac even if old mac is gone (bnc#789012,LTC#86643). - qeth: set new mac even if old mac is gone (2) (bnc#792697,LTC#87138). - qeth: fix deadlock between recovery and bonding driver (bnc#785101,LTC#85905). - dasd: check count address during online setting (bnc#781485,LTC#85346). - hugetlbfs: add missing TLB invalidation (bnc#781485,LTC#85463). - s390/kernel: make user-access pagetable walk code huge page aware (bnc#781485,LTC#85455). XEN : - xen/netback: fix netbk_count_requests(). - xen: properly bound buffer access when parsing cpu/availability. - xen/scsiback/usbback: move cond_resched() invocations to proper place. - xen/pciback: properly clean up after calling pcistub_device_find(). - xen: add further backward-compatibility configure options. - xen/PCI: suppress bogus warning on old hypervisors. - xenbus: fix overflow check in xenbus_dev_write(). - xen/x86: do not corrupt %eip when returning from a signal handler. Other : - kernel: Restrict clearing TIF_SIGPENDING (bnc#742111). - kernel: recalc_sigpending_tsk fixes (bnc#742111). - xfs: Do not reclaim new inodes in xfs_sync_inodes() (bnc#770980). - jbd: Avoid BUG_ON when checkpoint stalls (bnc#795335). - reiserfs: Fix int overflow while calculating free space (bnc#795075). - cifs: clarify the meaning of tcpStatus == CifsGood (bnc#769093). - cifs: do not allow cifs_reconnect to exit with NULL socket pointer (bnc#769093). - cifs: switch to seq_files (bnc#776370). - scsi: fix check of PQ and PDT bits for WLUNs (bnc#765687). - hugetlb: preserve hugetlb pte dirty state (bnc#790236). - poll: enforce RLIMIT_NOFILE in poll() (bnc#787272). - proc: fix ->open less usage due to ->proc_fops flip (bnc#776370). - rpm/kernel-binary.spec.in: Ignore kabi errors if %%ignore_kabi_badness is defined. This is used in the Kernel:* projects in the OBS. 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.
