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-2013-6765
Title: OpenVAS Manager Authentication Bypass Vulnerability
Vendor: OpenVAS
Description: OpenVAS Manager 3.0 before 3.0.7 and 4.0 before 4.0.4
allows remote attackers to bypass the OMP authentication restrictions
and execute OMP commands via a crafted OMP request for version
information, which causes the state to be set to CLIENT_AUTHENTIC, as
demonstrated by the omp_xml_handle_end_element function in omp.c.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 7.5 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)

ID: CVE-2014-3936
Title: D-Link HNAP Request Remote Buffer Overflow
Vendor: D-Link
Description: Stack-based buffer overflow in the do_hnap function in
www/my_cgi.cgi in D-Link DSP-W215 (Rev. A1) with firmware 1.01b06 and
earlier, DIR-505 with firmware before 1.08b10, and DIR-505L with
firmware 1.01 and earlier allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary
code via a long Content-Length header in a GetDeviceSettings action in
an HNAP request.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 10.0 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

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-2014-0160
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)
