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-2014-2928
Title: F5 Multiple Products iControl Input Validation Command Execution
Vulnerability
Vendor: F5
Description: The iControl API in F5 BIG-IP LTM, APM, ASM, GTM, Link
Controller, and PSM 10.0.0 through 10.2.4 and 11.0.0 through 11.5.1,
BIG-IP AAM 11.4.0 through 11.5.1, BIG-IP AFM and PEM 11.3.0 through
11.5.1, BIG-IP Analytics 11.0.0 through 11.5.1, BIG-IP Edge Gateway,
WebAccelerator, WOM 10.1.0 through 10.2.4 and 11.0.0 through 11.3.0,
Enterprise Manager 2.1.0 through 2.3.0 and 3.0.0 through 3.1.1, and
BIG-IQ Cloud, Device, and Security 4.0.0 through 4.3.0 allows remote
administrators to execute arbitrary commands via shell metacharacters
in the hostname element in a SOAP request.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 7.1 (AV:N/AC:H/Au:S/C:C/I:C/A:C)

ID: CVE-2014-7169
Title: Multiple Vendor Bash Remote Code Execution Vulnerability
Vendor: Multiple Vendors
Description: GNU Bash through 4.3 bash43-025 processes trailing strings
after certain malformed function definitions in the values of
environment variables, which allows remote attackers to write to files
or possibly have unknown other impact via a crafted environment, as
demonstrated by vectors involving the ForceCommand feature in OpenSSH
sshd, the mod_cgi and mod_cgid modules in the Apache HTTP Server,
scripts executed by unspecified DHCP clients, and other situations in
which setting the environment occurs across a privilege boundary from
Bash execution. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete
fix for CVE-2014-6271.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 10.0 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

ID: CVE-2014-6271
Title: Multiple Vendor Bash Remote Code Execution Vulnerability
Vendor: Multiple Vendors
Description: GNU Bash through 4.3 processes trailing strings after
function definitions in the values of environment variables, which
allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted
environment, as demonstrated by vectors involving the ForceCommand
feature in OpenSSH sshd, the mod_cgi and mod_cgid modules in the Apache
HTTP Server, scripts executed by unspecified DHCP clients, and other
situations in which setting the environment occurs across a privilege
boundary from Bash execution, aka “ShellShock.” NOTE: the original fix
for this issue was incorrect; CVE-2014-7169 has been assigned to cover
the vulnerability that is still present after the incorrect fix.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 10.0 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

ID: CVE-2013-7331
Title: Microsoft XMLDOM ActiveX Control Multiple Information Disclosure
Vulnerabilities
Vendor: Microsoft
Description: The Microsoft.XMLDOM ActiveX control in Microsoft Windows
8.1 and earlier allows remote attackers to determine the existence of
local pathnames, UNC share pathnames, intranet hostnames, and intranet
IP addresses by examining error codes, as demonstrated by a res:// URL,
and exploited in the wild in February 2014.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 5.8 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:P)

ID: CVE-2014-3120
Title: ElasticSearch Dynamic Script Arbitrary Code Execution Vulnerability
Vendor: Elasticsearch
Description: The default configuration in Elasticsearch before 1.2
enables dynamic scripting, which allows remote attackers to execute
arbitrary MVEL expressions and Java code via the source parameter to
_search.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 6.8 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)

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)
