CVE-2012-5860

Impact by CVSS Score
  • ID: CVE-2012-5860
Summary:

Unspecified vulnerability on Oberthur ID-One COSMO 5.2, 5.2a, and 64 smart cards makes it easier for attackers to defeat cryptographic protection mechanisms by leveraging the generation of non-compliant public keys.

Exploitability Analysis:

This is a vulnerability exploitable with only local access requires the attacker to have either physical access to the vulnerable system or a local (shell) account. Examples of locally exploitable vulnerabilities are peripheral attacks such as Firewire/USB DMA attacks, and local privilege escalations (e.g., sudo).

Exploitability Complexity:

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:

Authentication is not required to access and exploit the vulnerability.

Confidentiality Impact:

There is no impact to the confidentiality of the system.

Integrity Impact:

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:

There is no impact to the availability of the system.
