Microsoft Security Bulletin MS15-118 - Important

Security Update for .NET Framework to Address Elevation of Privilege (3104507)

Published: November 10, 2015 | Updated: February 9, 2016

Version: 2.0

Executive Summary

This security update resolves vulnerabilities in Microsoft .NET Framework. The most severe of the vulnerabilities could allow elevation of privilege if an attacker convinces a user to navigate to a compromised website or open a link in a specially crafted email that is designed to inject client-side code into the user’s browser.

This security update is rated Important for Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2, Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5, Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1, Microsoft .NET Framework 4, Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5, Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.1, Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.2, and Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6 on affected releases of Microsoft Windows. For more information, see the Affected Software section.

The security updates address the vulnerabilities by modifying how ASP.NET validates the value of a HTTP request, correcting how the .NET Framework parses certain specially crafted XML files, and helping to ensure that a .NET component properly implements the ASLR security feature. For more information about the vulnerability, see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) subsection for the specific vulnerability.

For more information about this update, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 3104507.

[1].NET Framework 4 and .NET Framework 4 Client Profile affected.

[2]This update is available via Windows Update only.

Note Windows Server Technical Preview 3 is affected. Customers running this operating system are encouraged to apply the update, which is available via Windows Update.

Update FAQ

How do I determine which version of Microsoft .NET Framework is installed?
You can install and run multiple versions of .NET Framework on a system, and you can install the versions in any order. For more information, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 318785.

What is the difference between .NET Framework 4 and .NET Framework 4 Client Profile?
The .NET Framework version 4 redistributable packages are available in two profiles: .NET Framework 4 and .NET Framework 4 Client Profile. The .NET Framework 4 Client Profile is a subset of the .NET Framework 4 profile that is optimized for client applications. It provides functionality for most client applications, including Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), Windows Forms, Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), and ClickOnce features. This enables faster deployment and a smaller install package for applications that target the .NET Framework 4 Client Profile. For more information, see the MSDN article, .NET Framework Client Profile.

There are multiple update packages available for some of the affected software. Do I need to install all the updates listed in the Affected Software table for the software?
Yes. Customers should apply all updates offered for the software installed on their systems.

Do I need to install these security updates in a particular sequence?
No. Multiple updates for a given system can be applied in any sequence.

Vulnerability Information

.NET Information Disclosure Vulnerability - CVE-2015-6096

An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the .NET Framework DTD parsing of certain specially crafted XML files. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could gain read access to local files on the target system.

To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker would need to convince a user to download and open a specially crafted application file. However, the attacker would have no way to force a user to download the file. The update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how the .NET Framework parses certain specially crafted XML files.

Microsoft received information about the vulnerability through coordinated vulnerability disclosure. At the time this security bulletin was originally issued, Microsoft was unaware of any attack attempting to exploit this vulnerability.

Mitigating Factors

Microsoft has not identified any mitigating factors for this vulnerability.

Workarounds

Microsoft has not identified any workarounds for this vulnerability.

.NET Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability - CVE-2015-6099

An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists when ASP.NET improperly validates values in HTTP requests, exposing users to a potential cross-site scripting (XSS) attack. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could leverage a vulnerable website to inject client-side script into a user’s browser and ultimately modify or spoof content, conduct phishing activities, disclose information, or perform any action on the vulnerable website that the target user has permission to perform.

To exploit this vulnerability, user interaction is required. In a web-browsing scenario a user would have to navigate to a compromised website. In an email attack scenario an attacker would have to convince a user who is logged on to a vulnerable server to click a specially crafted link in an email. The update addresses the vulnerability by modifying how ASP.NET validates the value of an HTTP request.

Microsoft received information about the vulnerability through coordinated vulnerability disclosure. At the time this security bulletin was originally issued, Microsoft was unaware of any attack attempting to exploit this vulnerability.

Mitigating Factors

Microsoft has not identified any mitigating factors for this vulnerability.

Workarounds

Microsoft has not identified any workarounds for this vulnerability.

The following workarounds may be helpful in your situation:

  • Remove requestPathInvalidCharacters key from web.config

    In order to work around this issue, administrators can remove the <httpRuntime requestPathInvalidCharacters="" /> non-default setting from web.config, or at least include “:” in the requestPathInvalidCharacters setting.

    How to undo the workaround:

    Restore the previously removed <httpRuntime requestPathInvalidCharacters="" /> line.

.NET ASLR Bypass - CVE-2015-6115

A security feature bypass exists in a .NET Framework component that does not properly implement the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) security feature, which protects users from a broad class of vulnerabilities. The ASLR bypass could allow an attacker to bypass the security feature and then load additional malicious code in an attempt to exploit another vulnerability. The security feature bypass by itself does not allow arbitrary code execution. However, an attacker could use this ASLR bypass in conjunction with another vulnerability, such as a remote code execution vulnerability, to run arbitrary code.

To exploit the ASLR bypass an attacker could host a specially crafted website (or leverage compromised websites or websites that accept or host potentially compromised user-provided content). An attacker would have no way to force users to visit a specially crafted website. Instead, an attacker would have to convince a user to do so. For example, an attacker could trick a user into clicking a link that takes the user to the compromised site. If the user is using a web browser that is capable of instantiating COM components, such as Internet Explorer, the affected .NET Framework component can be loaded to bypass the ASLR security feature. An attacker could then leverage the ASLR bypass to exploit an additional vulnerability, usually a remote code execution vulnerability. For example, a remote code execution vulnerability that is normally blocked by ASLR, could be exploited after a successful ASLR bypass. The update addresses the ASLR bypass by helping to ensure that the .NET component properly implements the ASLR security feature.

Microsoft received information about the vulnerability through coordinated vulnerability disclosure. At the time this security bulletin was originally issued, Microsoft was unaware of any attack attempting to exploit this vulnerability.
