Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer
Buffer overflow in Intel Trusted Execution Technology (TXT) SINIT Authenticated Code Modules (ACM) in Intel Q67 Express, C202, C204, C206 Chipsets, and Mobile Intel QM67, and QS67 Chipset before 2nd_gen_i5_i7_SINIT_51.BIN Express; Intel Q57, 3450 Chipsets and Mobile Intel QM57 and QS57 Express Chipset before i5_i7_DUAL_SINIT_51.BIN and i7_QUAD_SINIT_51.BIN; Mobile Intel GM45, GS45, and PM45 Express Chipset before GM45_GS45_PM45_SINIT_51.BIN; Intel Q35 Express Chipsets before Q35_SINIT_51.BIN; and Intel 5520, 5500, X58, and 7500 Chipsets before SINIT ACM 1.1 allows local users to bypass the Trusted Execution Technology protection mechanism and perform other unspecified SINIT ACM functions via unspecified vectors.
CWE-119 - Buffer Overflow
Buffer overflow attacks involve data transit and operations exceeding the restricted memory buffer, thereby corrupting or overwriting data in adjacent memory locations. Such overflow allows the attacker to run arbitrary code or manipulate the existing code to cause privilege escalation, data breach, denial of service, system crash and even complete system compromise. Given that languages such as C and C++ lack default safeguards against overwriting or accessing data in their memory, applications utilizing these languages are most susceptible to buffer overflows attacks.
