Hi guys,
I hope it's OK to post this here.
I'm looking for interesting software vulnerabilities where they are well documented and not just vaguely listed in a CVE page. It is for a university assignment. We need to discuss in depth how the vulnerability would be exploited etc. It is also favourable if the software in question isn't something obvious like Java or a common browser, the person marking the assignment will get sick of hearing about those.

Thanks in advance for any help.

If there is not enough information on a trail from either a CVE or a Secunia security alert these two may be able to help.

You can find some vulnerabilities analysed here: http://blogs.technet.com/b/srd/

Successful exploits on systems later than XP usually require more than one vulnerability.

Hey that's a great link, it really explains the fat pointers thing in a lot of depth (I'm not a programmer so I'm a bit confused by it all but I think I can use this).

So as I understand it, MS13-002 is like a Microsoft code for a CVE? And it relates to an issue on Server 2003 where a specially crafted page could cause issues with IE, resulting in privilege escallation or arbitrary code execution?

The MSyy-xxx identifiers refer to Microsoft security bulletins. The CVEs that they deal with will be referenced within them.

If you search through the SRD blog you can find some simpler examples.

Thank you! Those are some good ones I might use indeed.
I'm going to be very busy wrapping my head around all this vulnerability/exploit stuff...
Thanks for your help.
