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-2014-2969
Title: Netgear GS105PE Prosafe Plus Switch Contains Hard-Coded Login
Credentials
Vendor: Netgear
Description: NETGEAR GS108PE Prosafe Plus switches with firmware 1.2.0.5
have a hardcoded password of debugpassword for the ntgruser account,
which allows remote attackers to upload firmware or read or modify
memory contents, and consequently execute arbitrary code, via a request
to (1) produce_burn.cgi, (2) register_debug.cgi, or (3)
bootcode_update.cgi.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 8.3 (AV:A/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

ID: CVE-2012-1876
Title: Microsoft Internet Explorer Col Element Memory Corruption
Vulnerability
Vendor: Microsoft
Description: Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 through 9, and 10 Consumer
Preview, does not properly handle objects in memory, which allows remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code by attempting to access a
nonexistent object, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, aka “Col
Element Remote Code Execution Vulnerability,” as demonstrated by VUPEN
during a Pwn2Own competition at CanSecWest 2012.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 9.3 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

ID: N/A
Title: Supermicro Server Motherboard Credential Disclosure Vulnerability
Vendor: Supermicro
Description: Supermicro motherboards store administrator passwords in
plain text, which is available to any attacker who can connect to TCP
port 49152.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 10.0 (AV:N/AC:L/AU:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

ID: CVE-2014-0515
Title: Adobe Flash Player Shader Buffer Overflow
Vendor: Adobe
Description: Buffer overflow in Adobe Flash Player before 11.7.700.279
and 11.8.x through 13.0.x before 13.0.0.206 on Windows and OS X, and
before 11.2.202.356 on Linux, allows remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code via unspecified vectors, as exploited in the wild in
April 2014.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 10.0 (AV:N/AC:L/AU:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

ID: CVE-2014-0094
Title: Apache Struts ClassLoader Manipulation Remote Code Execution
Vendor: Apache
Description: The ParametersInterceptor in Apache Struts before 2.3.16.1
allows remote attackers to “manipulate” the ClassLoader via the class
parameter, which is passed to the getClass method.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 5.0 (AV:N/AC:L/AU:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)

ID: CVE-2014-1776
Title: Microsoft Internet Explorer Use-after-Free Vulnerability
Vendor: Microsoft
Description: Use-after-free vulnerability in VGX.DLL in Microsoft
Internet Explorer 6 through 11 allows remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption) via
unspecified vectors, as exploited in the wild in April 2014.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 10.0 (AV:N/AC:L/AU:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

ID: CVE-2014-0160
Title: OpenSSL TLS Heartbeat Extension Buffer Oveflow Information
Disclosure Vulnerability (Heartbleed)
Vendor: OpenSSL Project
Description: The (1) TLS and (2) DTLS implementations in OpenSSL 1.0.1
before 1.0.1g do not properly handle Heartbeart Extension packets, which
allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information from process
memory via crafted packets that trigger a buffer over-read, as
demonstrated by reading private keys, related to d1_both.c and t1_lib.c.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 5.0 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)
