  • 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 Microsoft Office application installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - Multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities exist in Microsoft Office software due to improper handling of objects in memory. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these, by convincing a user to open a specially crafted document file, to execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user. (CVE-2017-0020, CVE-2017-0030, CVE-2017-0031) - An information disclosure vulnerability exists in Microsoft Office due to improper disclosure of memory contents. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to disclose sensitive system memory information by convincing a user to open a specially crafted document file. (CVE-2017-0027) - A denial of service vulnerability exists in Microsoft Office that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause Office to stop responding by convincing a user to open a specially crafted document file. (CVE-2017-0029) - An out-of-bounds read error exists in Microsoft Office due to an uninitialized variable. A local attacker can exploit this to disclose memory contents by opening a specially crafted document file. (CVE-2017-0105) - A flaw exists in Microsoft Lync for Mac due to improper validation of X.509 certificates. A man-in-the-middle attacker can exploit this, by spoofing a TLS/SSL server via a certificate that appears valid, to disclose or manipulate transmitted data. (CVE-2017-0129)
