Summary

Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.01 SP4; 6 SP1; 6 and 7 for Windows XP SP2 and SP3; 6 and 7 for Server 2003 SP2; 7 for Vista Gold, SP1, and SP2; and 7 for Server 2008 SP2 does not prevent HTML rendering of cached content, which allows remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy via unspecified vectors, aka "Cross-Domain Information Disclosure Vulnerability."

Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE)

Common Attack Pattern Enumeration and Classification (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.

descriptionBUGTRAQ ID: 35200 CVE(CAN) ID: CVE-2009-1140 Internet Explorer是Windows操作系统中默认捆绑的WEB浏览器。 Internet Explorer缓存数据的方式存在一个信息泄露漏洞,可错误地允许调用缓存内容,从而绕过Internet Explorer区域限制。 Internet Explorer提供了URL安全区域功能,根据可信任程度对网站和应用定义了不同的权限组。默认下,所有不在“本地Intranet”区中且没有明确在 “受限站点”或“可信站点”中所列出的站点都分配到了Internet区域中,默认的安全区设置为“中-高”。 如果以UNC形式指定了URI(如\\MACHINE_NAME_OR_IP\PATH_TO_RESOURCE)的话,IE强制区域安全策略的方式存在一些问题。在这种情况下,IE将任何指向IP地址(包括127.0.0.1)的UNC地址归类为Internet区,因此,属于任何安全区域的任意网站可以将导航流重新定向到\\127.0.0.1上所存储的文件。 如果控制了网站的攻击者能够设法在用户的本地文件系统上存储包含有脚本代码的HTML,然后将浏览器重新定向到该本地文件(\\127.0.0.1 \full_file_name),就会以Internet安全区环境加载并呈现这些代码。但由于包含有代码的文件储存在\\127.0.0.1上,因此还可以访问用户文件系统上的任意其他文件。 Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0 Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1 Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0.1 SP4 临时解决方法: * 将Internet Explorer配置为在Internet和本地Intranet安全区域中运行ActiveX控件之前进行提示。 * 将Internet 和本地Intranet安全区域设置设为“高”,以便在这些区域中运行ActiveX控件和活动脚本之前进行提示。 厂商补丁: Microsoft --------- Microsoft已经为此发布了一个安全公告(MS09-018)以及相应补丁: MS09-018:Vulnerabilities in Active Directory Could Allow Remote Code Execution (971055) 链接:<a href="http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/Bulletin/MS09-018.mspx?pf=true" target="_blank" rel=external nofollow>http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/Bulletin/MS09-018.mspx?pf=true</a>
