BSD pseudo-tty information disclosure
|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, which was classified as problematic, was found in BSD (the affected version unknown). This affects some unknown processing of the component pseudo-tty. The manipulation with an unknown input leads to a information disclosure vulnerability. CWE is classifying the issue as CWE-200. This is going to have an impact on confidentiality.
The weakness was presented 07/18/1985 by Tom Truscott (Website). It is possible to read the advisory at securitydigest.org. It is possible to initiate the attack remotely. Required for exploitation is a authentication. Technical details are unknown but an exploit is available.
After immediately, there has been an exploit disclosed. 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.
