Improper Neutralization of Special Elements used in a Command ('Command Injection')
A malformed SMI (System Management Interface) command may allow an attacker to establish a corrupted SMI Trigger Info data structure, potentially leading to out-of-bounds memory reads and writes when triggering an SMI resulting in a potential loss of resources.
CWE-77 - Command Injection
A command injection attack involves injecting an operating system command through the data input, which gets executed on the host operating system with the privileges of the victimized application. The impact of a command injection attack may range from loss of data confidentiality and integrity to unauthorized remote access to the hosting system. The attack may cause serious data breaches and system takeover.
