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 Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a privilege escalation, denial of service or have other impacts. CVE-2014-9888 Russell King found that on ARM systems, memory allocated for DMA buffers was mapped with executable permission. This made it easier to exploit other vulnerabilities in the kernel. CVE-2014-9895 Dan Carpenter found that the MEDIA_IOC_ENUM_LINKS ioctl on media devices resulted in an information leak. CVE-2016-6786 / CVE-2016-6787 It was discovered that the performance events subsystem does not properly manage locks during certain migrations, allowing a local attacker to escalate privileges. This can be mitigated by disabling unprivileged use of performance events: sysctl kernel.perf_event_paranoid=3 CVE-2016-8405 Peter Pi of Trend Micro discovered that the frame buffer video subsystem does not properly check bounds while copying color maps to userspace, causing a heap buffer out-of-bounds read, leading to information disclosure. CVE-2017-5549 It was discovered that the KLSI KL5KUSB105 serial USB device driver could log the contents of uninitialised kernel memory, resulting in an information leak. CVE-2017-6001 Di Shen discovered a race condition between concurrent calls to the performance events subsystem, allowing a local attacker to escalate privileges. This flaw exists because of an incomplete fix of CVE-2016-6786. This can be mitigated by disabling unprivileged use of performance events: sysctl kernel.perf_event_paranoid=3 CVE-2017-6074 Andrey Konovalov discovered a use-after-free vulnerability in the DCCP networking code, which could result in denial of service or local privilege escalation. On systems that do not already have the dccp module loaded, this can be mitigated by disabling it: echo >> /etc/modprobe.d/disable-dccp.conf install dccp false For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 3.2.84-2. For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 3.16.39-1+deb8u1 or earlier. We recommend that you upgrade your linux packages.

    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP4 kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2018-3620: Local attackers on baremetal systems could use speculative code patterns on hyperthreaded processors to read data present in the L1 Datacache used by other hyperthreads on the same CPU core, potentially leaking sensitive data. (bnc#1087081). - CVE-2018-3646: Local attackers in virtualized guest systems could use speculative code patterns on hyperthreaded processors to read data present in the L1 Datacache used by other hyperthreads on the same CPU core, potentially leaking sensitive data, even from other virtual machines or the host system.

The problem has limited scope as non-privileged users usually have no permissions to access SCSI device files. (bnc#1096728). - CVE-2018-13053: The alarm_timer_nsleep function in kernel/time/alarmtimer.c had an integer overflow via a large relative timeout because ktime_add_safe is not used (bnc#1099924). - CVE-2018-13406: An integer overflow in the uvesafb_setcmap function in drivers/video/fbdev/uvesafb.c could result in local attackers being able to crash the kernel or potentially elevate privileges because kmalloc_array is not used (bnc#1098016 bnc#1100418). - CVE-2016-8405: An information disclosure vulnerability in kernel components including the ION subsystem, Binder, USB driver and networking subsystem could enable a local malicious application to access data outside of its permission levels.
