Avira Internet Security avipbb.sys memory corruption

CVSS Meta Temp Score
CVSS is a standardized scoring system to determine possibilities of attacks. The Temp Score considers temporal factors like disclosure, exploit and countermeasures. The unique Meta Score calculates the average score of different sources to provide a normalized scoring system.
Current Exploit Price (≈)
Our analysts are monitoring exploit markets and are in contact with vulnerability brokers. The range indicates the observed or calculated exploit price to be seen on exploit markets. A good indicator to understand the monetary effort required for and the popularity of an attack.
CTI Interest Score
Our Cyber Threat Intelligence team is monitoring different web sites, mailing lists, exploit markets and social media networks. The CTI Interest Score identifies the interest of attackers and the security community for this specific vulnerability in real-time. A high score indicates an elevated risk to be targeted for this vulnerability.

A vulnerability was found in Avira Internet Security (version now known) and classified as critical. This issue affects some unknown processing of the file avipbb.sys. The manipulation with an unknown input leads to a memory corruption vulnerability. Using CWE to declare the problem leads to CWE-119. The product performs operations on a memory buffer, but it can read from or write to a memory location that is outside of the intended boundary of the buffer. Impacted is confidentiality, integrity, and availability.

The weakness was presented 10/20/2013 by Ahmad Moghimi as not defined exploit (Exploit-DB). It is possible to read the advisory at exploit-db.com. The vendor was not involved in the public release. The exploitation is known to be difficult. Attacking locally is a requirement. Required for exploitation is a simple authentication. Technical details as well as a public exploit are known.

A public exploit has been developed by Ahmad Moghimi and been published immediately after the advisory. The exploit is available at exploit-db.com. It is declared as proof-of-concept.

There is no information about possible countermeasures known. It may be suggested to replace the affected object with an alternative product.

The vulnerability is also documented in the vulnerability database at Exploit-DB (29125). See VDB-11005 for similar entry.
