Top Exploits of the Week #1

Quicktime 0day

I thought I’d try something different (excuse me if its been done before, oh well). Every week I will be making a list of the top 5 exploits of the week, details about them, etc.

So lets get the ball rolling:

#1 Internet Explorer 7 XML Buffer Overflow Exploit (Vista Target) — This remote beauty executes remote code on a vulnerable (probably still unpatched) Internet Explorer 7 machine running Windows Vista. Coded by muts.

#2 Internet Explorer 7 XML Buffer Overflow Exploit (XP SP3 Target) — Exploits the same bug as above but executes code on a Windows XP SP3 target. Coded by Guido Landi.

#3 XOOPS 2.3.1 Multiple LFI Exploits — XOOPS suffers from a few local file inclusion bugs, and DSecRG has some code for you.

#4 Linux Kernel ATMSVC DoS Exploit — Send a kernel into an infinite loop by locally running this exploit on a vulnerable machine. Code by Jon Oberheide.

#5 phpMyAdmin 3.1.0 XSRF Exploit — Cross site scripting attacks are more dangerous than most developers think. Here is exploit code, just don’t have phpMyAdmin open in another tab! Provided by Michael Brooks.

See you all next week with more. Bug on :)
