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-2014-1806
Title: Microsoft .NET Framework .Net Remoting Elevation of Privileges (MS14-026)
Vendor: Microsoft
Description: The .NET Remoting implementation in Microsoft .NET
Framework 1.1 SP1, 2.0 SP2, 3.5, 3.5.1, 4, 4.5, and 4.5.1 does not
properly restrict memory access, which allows remote attackers to
execute arbitrary code via vectors involving malformed objects, aka
“TypeFilterLevel Vulnerability.”
CVSS v2 Base Score: 10.0 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

ID: CVE-2014-6352
Title: Microsoft Windows OLE Memory Corruption Code Execution Vulnerability
Vendor: Microsoft
Description: Microsoft Windows Vista SP2, Windows Server 2008 SP2 and
R2 SP1, Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 Gold
and R2, and Windows RT Gold and 8.1 allow remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code via a crafted OLE object, as exploited in the wild in
October 2014 with a crafted PowerPoint document.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 9.3 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

ID: CVE-2014-2782
Title: Microsoft Internet Explorer CVE-2014-2782 Remote Memory
Corruption Vulnerability
Vendor: Microsoft
Description: Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 through 11 allows remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory
corruption) via a crafted web site, aka “Internet Explorer Memory
Corruption Vulnerability,” a different vulnerability than CVE-2014-1773,
CVE-2014-1783, CVE-2014-1784, CVE-2014-1786, CVE-2014-1795,
CVE-2014-1805, CVE-2014-2758, CVE-2014-2759, CVE-2014-2765,
CVE-2014-2766, and CVE-2014-2775.
CVSS v2 Base Score: 9.3 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

ID: CVE-2014-4114
Title: Microsoft Windows OLE - Remote Code Execution “Sandworm” Exploit (MS14-060)
Vendor: Microsoft
Description: Microsoft Windows Vista SP2, Windows Server 2008 SP2 and
R2 SP1, Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 Gold
and R2, and Windows RT Gold and 8.1 allow remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code via a crafted OLE object in an Office document, as
exploited in the wild with a “Sandworm” attack in June through October
2014, aka “Windows OLE Remote Code Execution Vulnerability.”
CVSS v2 Base Score: 9.3 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/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-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)
