  • 1. “Blended Threat” Concept in web applicationsBogdan Sergiu Dragosa.k.a Domnul.DoStudent at Drăgan European University in Lugoj
  • 2. Legal DisclameThis is only a proof of concept , for demostrating only .
  • 3. “Blended Threat Concept”• It has no clear definition because it’s more a concept that an attack .• But we have the following definition from different sites:
  • 4. Blended Threat Concept• Definition from Wikipedia:“A blended threat is a software vulnerability which in turn involves a combination of attacks against different vulnerabilities. For example, many worm, a trojan horse and a computer virus exploit multiple techniques to attack and propagate. It is a kind of computer threat.” Link:
  • 5. Blended Threat Concept• Definition from TrendMicro:“ (…) A blended threat refers to a single threat that attacks via multiple vectors (e.g., a worm gains entry via email and then leverages back-door vulnerabilities for further infection and destruction). “ Link:
  • 6. Blended Threat Concept• My own definition: “A Blended Threat: is a non-limited vector that need two or more different attack,that are mutually dependent, for manipulation of the usual application logic.“
  • 7. History of Blended Threat’s• The person who introduce this kind of method was: Billy (BK) Rios• In his presentation: “Will it Blend”• With this P.o.C : Blended Threat from Combined Attack Using Apple’s
  • 8. The P.o.CMy Proof Concept is:• In a Yahoo! Service , called YQL• Based on CSRF and one user interactionIn this presentation I will show a method to validate YQL commands, without the console , more exactly :! To change the status in the Yahoo! Profile YQL = Yahoo Query Language
  • 9. What is YQLYQL is:• A SQL-like language• A clowd service• W can create API’s or using other API’s and manipulating the rezults in the “cloud”• We can make authentificated YQL commands in Yahoo!Inbox or Yahoo!Profile
  • 10. YQL- Open Data Tables• It’s a way to connect to the remote web API (EndPoint) and understanding what to do with the data that will get• How it look like:
  • 11. YQL-Open Data Table Example
  • 12. YQL –Use verb• We can use simple server side javascripts in the <execute> tab of the xml ,here some exemple:• To make an object request we can use request: Request.accept(‘application/json’) .header(‘Authorization’, ‘…’) .query(‘searchterm’, ‘foo’).get()• The response.object can transmit the user the final result : Response.object = data
  • 13. YQL – JS API• Some key feature , what can do: - use external JS files - convert between XML JSON - can make other YQL in the same YQL
  • 14. How it look like in consoleLink: %22%20where%20guid%3Dme
  • 15. How it look like in request• First the console read the crumb (Yahoo! Token )• Second the console send the YQL command with the crumb to the “cloud”
  • 16. First Step: Read the crumb Note: The crumb is generated no matter if the user is logged in
  • 17. Second step: Sending the data
  • 18. The P.o.C• I have the “location” of the crumb• I know where to send the data,but how to convise the user to give us the crumb?!
  • 19. The P.o.C• I have the “location” of the crumb• I know where to send the data,but how to convise the user to give us the crumb?!• Is simple …
  • 20. Meanwhile …• Why do dogs (and other animals) eat poop? “Herbivores such as rabbits eat their own poop because their diet of plants is hard to digest efficiently, and they have to make two passes at it to get everything out of the meal. “
  • 21. The P.o.CThis is another version of the attack named “Fake Captcha” by Kotowicz
  • 22. The sourse of the P.o.C
  • 23. How to gather the status We can confirm by using the YQL command: Link :
  • 24. My recommendation is:Is enough to add the response header: ”X-FRAME-OPTIONS”
  • 25. Credits• Billy (BK) Rios• Kotowicz• Dragan European University , Lugoj , Timis• Dan Kaminsky , in 2008 he “own-ed” the internet. His work must not be forgoten!
