Impact by CVSS Score
  • ID: CVE-1999-0151
Summary:

The SATAN session key may be disclosed if the user points the web browser to other sites, possibly allowing root access.

Exploitability Analysis: Network

A vulnerability exploitable with network access means the vulnerable software is bound to the network stack and the attacker does not require local network access or local access. Such a vulnerability is often termed “remotely exploitable”. An example of a network attack is an RPC buffer overflow.

Exploitability Complexity: High

Specialized access conditions exist. For example, in most configurations, the attacking party must already have elevated privileges or spoof additional systems in addition to the attacking system (e.g., DNS hijacking). The attack depends on social engineering methods that would be easily detected by knowledgeable people. For example, the victim must perform several suspicious or atypical actions. The vulnerable configuration is seen very rarely in practice. If a race condition exists, the window is very narrow.

Authentication: None

Authentication is not required to access and exploit the vulnerability.

Confidentiality Impact: Complete

There is total information disclosure, resulting in all system files being revealed. The attacker is able to read all of the system's data (memory, files, etc.).

Integrity Impact: Complete

There is a total compromise of system integrity. There is a complete loss of system protection, resulting in the entire system being compromised. The attacker is able to modify any files on the target system.

Availability Impact: Complete

There is a total shutdown of the affected resource. The attacker can render the resource completely unavailable.
