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 The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability in the Microsoft Windows PDF Library due to improper handling of objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by convincing a user to open a specially crafted PDF file or visit a website containing specially crafted PDF content, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user.

    description The version of Microsoft Edge installed on the remote Windows host is missing Cumulative Security Update 3177358. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - Multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities exist due to a failure to properly access objects in memory. A remote attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2016-3289, CVE-2016-3293, CVE-2016-3319, CVE-2016-3322) - A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the Chakra JavaScript engine due to improper handling of objects in memory. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website or open a specially crafted Office document, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2016-3296) - Multiple information disclosure vulnerabilities exist due to improper handling of objects in memory. A remote attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website, resulting in the disclosure of sensitive information. (CVE-2016-3326, CVE-2016-3327) - An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to improper handling of page content. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website, resulting in the disclosure of specific files on a user's system. (CVE-2016-3329)
