Impact by CVSS Score
  • ID: CVE-1999-0870
Summary:

Internet Explorer 4.01 allows remote attackers to read arbitrary files by pasting a file name into the file upload control, aka untrusted scripted paste.

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: Partial

There is considerable informational disclosure. Access to some system files is possible, but the attacker does not have control over what is obtained, or the scope of the loss is constrained. An example is a vulnerability that divulges only certain tables in a database.

Integrity Impact: None

There is no impact to the integrity of the system.

Availability Impact: None

There is no impact to the availability of the system.
