Maxwell’s Formulation – Differential Forms on Euclidean Space

Maxwell’s Formulation – Differential Forms on Euclidean Space

Author: Jing Wang

Institute: School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

 

maxwell

 

One of the greatest advances in theoretical physics of the nineteenth century was Maxwell’s formulation of the the equations of electromagnetism. This article uses differential forms to solve a problem related to Maxwell’s formulation. The notion of differential form encompasses such ideas as elements of surface area and volume elements, the work exerted by a force, the flow of a fluid, and the curvature of a surface, space or hyperspace. An important operation on differential forms is exterior differentiation, which generalizes the operators div, grad, curl of vector calculus. the study of differential forms, which was initiated by E.Cartan in the years around 1900, is often termed the exterior differential calculus.However, Maxwell’s equations have many very important implications in the life of a modern person, so much so that people use devices that function off the principles in Maxwell’s equations every day without even knowing it.

Yahoo Yahoo.com Yahoo.co.jp Open Redirect (Unvalidated Redirects and Forwards) Web Security Bugs

 

Though Yahoo lists open redirect vulnerability on its bug bounty program. However, it seems Yahoo do not take this vulnerability seriously at all.

 

Multiple Open Redirect vulnerabilities were reported Yahoo. All Yahoo’s responses were “It is working as designed”. However, these vulnerabilities were patched later.

 

Several other security researcher complained about getting similar treatment, too.
http://seclists.org/fulldisclosure/2014/Jan/51
http://seclists.org/fulldisclosure/2014/Feb/119

 

All Open Redirect Vulnerabilities are intended behavior? If so, why patch them later?

yahoo_wont_fix_meitu_1

 


From report of CNET, Yahoo’s users were attacked by redirection vulnerabilities. “Yahoo.com visitors over the last few days may have been served with malware via the Yahoo ad network, according to Fox IT, a security firm in the Netherlands. Users visiting pages with the malicious ads were redirected to sites armed with code that exploits vulnerabilities in Java and installs a variety of different malware. ”
http://www.cnet.com/news/yahoo-users-exposed-to-malware-attack/

 

Moreover, since Yahoo is well-known worldwide. these vulnerabilities can be used to attack other companies such as Google, eBay, The New York Times, Amazon, Godaddy, Alibaba, Netease, e.g. by bypassing their Open Redirect filters (Covert Redirect). These cyber security bug problems have not been patched. Other similar web and computer flaws will be published in the near future.

 

The vulnerabilities can be attacked without user login. Tests were performed on Microsoft IE (10.0.9200.16750) of Windows 8, Mozilla Firefox (34.0) & Google Chromium 39.0.2171.65-0 ubuntu0.14.04.1.1064 (64-bit) of Ubuntu (14.04),Apple Safari 6.1.6 of Mac OS X Lion 10.7.

Both Yahoo and Yahoo Japan online web application has a computer cyber security bug problem. It can be exploited by Unvalidated Redirects and Forwards (URL Redirection) attacks. This could allow a user to create a specially crafted URL, that if clicked, would redirect a victim from the intended legitimate web site to an arbitrary web site of the attacker’s choosing. Such attacks are useful as the crafted URL initially appear to be a web page of a trusted site. This could be leveraged to direct an unsuspecting user to a web page containing attacks that target client side software such as a web browser or document rendering programs.

Alle Links zu New York Times Artikel Vor 2013 anfällig für XSS-Angriffe

Alle Links zu New York Times Artikel Vor 2013 anfällig für XSS-Angriffe

 

URLs, um Artikel in der New York Times (NYT) vor 2013 veröffentlicht wurden gefunden anfällig für einen XSS (Cross-Site Scripting) Angriff der Lage ist, Code im Kontext des Web-Browsers ausgeführt werden zu können.

 

thedhruvsoni_1372883880_65


Basierend auf nytimes die Gestaltung, fast alle URLs vor 2013 sind betroffen (Alle Seiten von Artikeln). In der Tat, alle Artikel Seiten, die Schaltfläche “Drucken”, “Jede Seite” Taste enthalten, werden “Seite *” Taste “NEXT PAGE” -Taste beeinflusst.

 

Nytimes geändert diesen Mechanismus seit 2013. Es decodiert die URLs, seine Server gesendet. Dadurch ist der Mechanismus nun viel sicherer.

 

Jedoch werden alle URLs vor 2013 immer noch mit dem alten Mechanismus. Das bedeutet fast allen Artikelseiten vor 2013 sind immer noch anfällig für XSS-Angriffe. Ich denke, der Grund, nytimes keine URLs filtern, bevor die Kosten. Es kostet zu viel (Geld und Humankapital), um in der Datenbank nach Artikel gepostet, bevor ändern.

 

Die Sicherheitslücke wurde von einem Mathematik Doktorand Wang Jing von der Schule für Physikalische und Mathematische Wissenschaften (SPMS), Nanyang Technological University, Singapur.

 

POC und Blog Erklärung von Wang gegeben,
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RekCK5tjXWQ
http://tetraph.com/security/xss-vulnerability/new-york-times-nytimes-com-page-design-xss-vulnerability-almost-all-article-pages-are-affected/

 

Unterdessen sagte Wang: “Die New York Times hat einen neuen Mechanismus jetzt angenommen. Dies ist eine bessere Schutzmechanismus.”

 

 

Auch wenn die Artikel sind alt, sind die Seiten noch relevant
Ein Angriff auf neueren Artikel würde auf jeden Fall haben erhebliche Auswirkungen gehabt, aber Artikeln von 2012 oder sogar noch älter sind alles andere als überholt. Es wäre immer noch im Rahmen eines Angriffs von Bedeutung sein.

 

Cyberkriminelle können verschiedene Möglichkeiten, um den Link, um potenzielle Opfer zu senden und aufzuzeichnen hohen Erfolgsraten, alle mit mehr gezielte Angriffe zu entwickeln.

 

 

Was ist XSS?
Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) ist eine Art von Computer-Sicherheitslücke in der Regel in Web-Anwendungen gefunden. XSS ermöglicht es Angreifern, clientseitige Skript in Webseiten, die von anderen Benutzern eingesehen zu injizieren. Eine Cross-Site-Scripting-Schwachstelle kann von Angreifern wie der Same Origin Policy verwendet werden, um Zugangskontrollen zu umgehen. Cross-Site Scripting auf Webseiten durchgeführt entfielen rund 84% aller Sicherheitslücken von Symantec ab 2007 dokumentiert (Wikipedia)

 

 

 

 

Weather Channel Website Vulnerable to Reflected XSS Attacks

cloud_computing_coding_security_lock_thinkstock_466683417-100412455-primary.idge
 

Popular Weather Channel web site (Weather.com) has been found to be vulnerable to a reflected Cross-Site Scripting flaw, according to security researcher Wang Jing’s research. The vulnerability lies in that Weather.com does not filter malicious script codes when constructing HTML tags with its URLs. This way, an attacker just adds a malicious script at the end of the URL and executes it.

“If The Weather Channel’s users were exploited, their Identity may be stolen,” Jing said via email. “At the same time, attackers may use the vulnerability to spy users’ habits, access sensitive information, alter browser functionality, perform denial of service attacks, etc.”

Wang Jing is a Ph.D student from School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He found that at list 76.3% of Weather Channel website links were vulnerable to XSS attacks. Attackers just need to add scripts at end of Weather Channel’s URLs. Then the scripts will be executed.
