RECENT VULNERABILITIES FOR WHICH EXPLOITS ARE AVAILABLE COMPILED BY THE QUALYS VULNERABILITY RESEARCH TEAM

This is a list of recent vulnerabilities for which exploits are
available. System administrators can use this list to help in
prioritization of their remediation activities. The Qualys Vulnerability
Research Team compiles this information based on various exploit
frameworks, exploit databases, exploit kits and monitoring of internet
activity.

ID: CVE-2013-3906
Title: Microsoft Graphics Component Could Allow Remote Code Execution
Vendor: Microsoft
Description: Remote exploitation of a memory corruption vulnerability
in multiple Microsoft products could allow attackers to execute
arbitrary code on the targeted host. The issue occurs with how the TIFF
codec in Microsoft’s graphics component handles crafted TIFF files.
Processing crafted TIFF files can corrupt system memory and create an
exploitable condition.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 9.3 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

ID: CVE-2012-1823
Title: PHP Group PHP CGI Query String Parameter Processing Remote Code Execution
Vendor: PHP
Description: sapi/cgi/cgi_main.c in PHP before 5.3.12 and 5.4.x before
5.4.2, when configured as a CGI script (aka php-cgi), does not properly
handle query strings that lack an = (equals sign) character, which
allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code by placing
command-line options in the query string, related to lack of skipping a
certain php_getopt for the ‘d’ case.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 7.5 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)

ID: CVE-2013-4822
Title: HP Intelligent Management Center BIMS UploadServlet Directory Traversal
Vendor: HP
Description: Unspecified vulnerability in HP Intelligent Management
Center (iMC) and HP IMC Branch Intelligent Management System Software
Module (aka BIMS) allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via
unknown vectors, aka ZDI-CAN-1606.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 10.0 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

ID: Not Available
Title: D-Link Authentication Security Bypass Vulnerability
Vendor: D-Link
Description: A remote exploitation of a design error vulnerability in
D-Link Systems Inc.’s routers could allow attackers to bypass
authentication security restrictions. The router allows any user with a
Web browser having the user agent string
“xmlset_roodkcableoj28840ybtide” to gain access to the Web interface of
the device without the requirement for any authentication credentials.
Affects D-Link Firmware v1.13 and other versions may also be affected.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 10.0 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

ID: CVE-2013-3897
Title: Microsoft Internet Explorer CDisplayPointer Use-After-Free (MS13-080)
Vendor: Microsoft
Description: Use-after-free vulnerability in the CDisplayPointer class
in mshtml.dll in Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 through 11 allows remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory
corruption) via crafted JavaScript code that uses the onpropertychange
event handler, as exploited in the wild in September and October 2013,
aka “Internet Explorer Memory Corruption Vulnerability.”
CVSS v2 Base Score: 9.3 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

ID: CVE-2013-2251
Title: Apache Struts 2 DefaultActionMapper Prefixes OGNL Code Execution
Vendor: Apache
Description: Apache Struts 2.0.0 through 2.3.15 allows remote attackers
to execute arbitrary OGNL expressions via a parameter with a crafted (1)
action: , (2) redirect:, or (3) redirectAction: prefix.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 9.3 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
