    description It was discovered that a malicious website could inject arbitrary scripts into a target site by loading it into a frame and navigating back to a previous JavaScript URL that contained an eval() call. This could be used to steal cookies or other confidential data from the target site. If the target site is allowed to raise the install confirmation dialog in Firefox then this flaw even allowed the malicious site to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the Firefox user. By default only the Mozilla Update site is allowed to attempt software installation; however, users can permit this for additional sites. (MFSA 2005-42) Michael Krax, Georgi Guninski, and L. David Baron found that the security checks that prevent script injection could be bypassed by wrapping a javascript: url in another pseudo-protocol like 'view-source:' or 'jar:'. (CAN-2005-1531) A variant of the attack described in CAN-2005-1160 (see USN-124-1) was discovered. Additional checks were added to make sure JavaScript eval and Script objects are run with the privileges of the context that created them, not the potentially elevated privilege of the context calling them. (CAN-2005-1532) Note: These flaws also apply to Ubuntu 5.04's Mozilla, and to the Ubuntu 4.10 versions of Firefox and Mozilla. These will be fixed soon. Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    description Several problems have been discovered in Mozilla Thunderbird, the standalone mail client of the Mozilla suite. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CAN-2005-0989 Remote attackers could read portions of heap memory into a JavaScript string via the lambda replace method. - CAN-2005-1159 The JavaScript interpreter could be tricked to continue execution at the wrong memory address, which may allow attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code. - CAN-2005-1160 Remote attackers could override certain properties or methods of DOM nodes and gain privileges. - CAN-2005-1532 Remote attackers could override certain properties or methods due to missing proper limitation of JavaScript eval and Script objects and gain privileges. - CAN-2005-2261 XML scripts ran even when JavaScript disabled. - CAN-2005-2265 Missing input sanitising of InstallVersion.compareTo() can cause the application to crash. - CAN-2005-2266 Remote attackers could steal sensitive information such as cookies and passwords from websites by accessing data in alien frames. - CAN-2005-2269 Remote attackers could modify certain tag properties of DOM nodes that could lead to the execution of arbitrary script or code. - CAN-2005-2270 The Mozilla browser family does not properly clone base objects, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.

    description Updated firefox packages that fix various security bugs are now available. This update has been rated as having Important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser. Vladimir V. Perepelitsa discovered a bug in the way Firefox handles anonymous functions during regular expression string replacement. It is possible for a malicious web page to capture a random block of browser memory. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0989 to this issue. Omar Khan discovered a bug in the way Firefox processes the PLUGINSPAGE tag. It is possible for a malicious web page to trick a user into pressing the 'manual install' button for an unknown plugin leading to arbitrary JavaScript code execution. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0752 to this issue. Doron Rosenberg discovered a bug in the way Firefox displays pop-up windows. If a user choses to open a pop-up window whose URL is malicious JavaScript, the script will be executed with elevated privileges. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-1153 to this issue. A bug was found in the way Firefox handles the JavaScript global scope for a window. It is possible for a malicious web page to define a global variable known to be used by a different site, allowing malicious code to be executed in the context of the site. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-1154 to this issue. Michael Krax discovered a bug in the way Firefox handles favicon links. A malicious web page can programatically define a favicon link tag as JavaScript, executing arbitrary JavaScript with elevated privileges. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-1155 to this issue. Michael Krax discovered a bug in the way Firefox installed search plugins. If a user chooses to install a search plugin from a malicious site, the new plugin could silently overwrite an existing plugin. This could allow the malicious plugin to execute arbitrary code and steal sensitive information. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2005-1156 and CVE-2005-1157 to these issues. Kohei Yoshino discovered a bug in the way Firefox opens links in its sidebar. A malicious web page could construct a link in such a way that, when clicked on, could execute arbitrary JavaScript with elevated privileges. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-1158 to this issue. A bug was found in the way Firefox validated several XPInstall related JavaScript objects. A malicious web page could pass other objects to the XPInstall objects, resulting in the JavaScript interpreter jumping to arbitrary locations in memory. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-1159 to this issue. A bug was found in the way the Firefox privileged UI code handled DOM nodes from the content window. A malicious web page could install malicious JavaScript code or steal data requiring a user to do commonplace actions such as clicking a link or opening the context menu. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-1160 to this issue. Users of Firefox are advised to upgrade to this updated package which contains Firefox version 1.0.3 and is not vulnerable to these issues.

    description Updated mozilla packages that fix various security bugs are now available. This update has been rated as having Important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. Mozilla is an open source Web browser, advanced email and newsgroup client, IRC chat client, and HTML editor. Vladimir V. Perepelitsa discovered a bug in the way Mozilla handles anonymous functions during regular expression string replacement. It is possible for a malicious web page to capture a random block of browser memory. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0989 to this issue. Doron Rosenberg discovered a bug in the way Mozilla displays pop-up windows. If a user choses to open a pop-up window whose URL is malicious JavaScript, the script will be executed with elevated privileges. (CVE-2005-1153) A bug was found in the way Mozilla handles the JavaScript global scope for a window. It is possible for a malicious web page to define a global variable known to be used by a different site, allowing malicious code to be executed in the context of the site. (CVE-2005-1154) Michael Krax discovered a bug in the way Mozilla handles favicon links. A malicious web page can programatically define a favicon link tag as JavaScript, executing arbitrary JavaScript with elevated privileges. (CVE-2005-1155) Michael Krax discovered a bug in the way Mozilla installed search plugins. If a user chooses to install a search plugin from a malicious site, the new plugin could silently overwrite an existing plugin. This could allow the malicious plugin to execute arbitrary code and stealm sensitive information. (CVE-2005-1156 CVE-2005-1157) A bug was found in the way Mozilla validated several XPInstall related JavaScript objects. A malicious web page could pass other objects to the XPInstall objects, resulting in the JavaScript interpreter jumping to arbitrary locations in memory. (CVE-2005-1159) A bug was found in the way the Mozilla privileged UI code handled DOM nodes from the content window. A malicious web page could install malicious JavaScript code or steal data requiring a user to do commonplace actions such as clicking a link or opening the context menu. (CVE-2005-1160) Users of Mozilla are advised to upgrade to this updated package which contains Mozilla version 1.7.7 to correct these issues.

    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200504-18 (Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Suite: Multiple vulnerabilities) The following vulnerabilities were found and fixed in the Mozilla Suite and Mozilla Firefox: Vladimir V. Perepelitsa reported a memory disclosure bug in JavaScript's regular expression string replacement when using an anonymous function as the replacement argument (CAN-2005-0989). moz_bug_r_a4 discovered that Chrome UI code was overly trusting DOM nodes from the content window, allowing privilege escalation via DOM property overrides. Michael Krax reported a possibility to run JavaScript code with elevated privileges through the use of javascript: favicons. Michael Krax also discovered that malicious Search plugins could run JavaScript in the context of the displayed page or stealthily replace existing search plugins. shutdown discovered a technique to pollute the global scope of a window in a way that persists from page to page. Doron Rosenberg discovered a possibility to run JavaScript with elevated privileges when the user asks to 'Show' a blocked popup that contains a JavaScript URL. Finally, Georgi Guninski reported missing Install object instance checks in the native implementations of XPInstall-related JavaScript objects. The following Firefox-specific vulnerabilities have also been discovered: Kohei Yoshino discovered a new way to abuse the sidebar panel to execute JavaScript with elevated privileges. Omar Khan reported that the Plugin Finder Service can be tricked to open javascript: URLs with elevated privileges. Impact : The various JavaScript execution with elevated privileges issues can be exploited by a remote attacker to install malicious code or steal data. The memory disclosure issue can be used to reveal potentially sensitive information. Finally, the cache pollution issue and search plugin abuse can be leveraged in cross-site-scripting attacks. Workaround : There is no known workaround at this time.

    description Updated thunderbird package that fixes various bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client. A bug was found in the way Thunderbird handled anonymous functions during regular expression string replacement. It is possible for a malicious HTML mail to capture a random block of client memory. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned this bug the name CVE-2005-0989. A bug was found in the way Thunderbird validated several XPInstall related JavaScript objects. A malicious HTML mail could pass other objects to the XPInstall objects, resulting in the JavaScript interpreter jumping to arbitrary locations in memory. (CVE-2005-1159) A bug was found in the way the Thunderbird privileged UI code handled DOM nodes from the content window. An HTML message could install malicious JavaScript code or steal data when a user performs commonplace actions such as clicking a link or opening the context menu. (CVE-2005-1160) A bug was found in the way Thunderbird executed JavaScript code. JavaScript executed from HTML mail should run with a restricted access level, preventing dangerous actions. It is possible that a malicious HTML mail could execute JavaScript code with elevated privileges, allowing access to protected data and functions. (CVE-2005-1532) A bug was found in the way Thunderbird executed JavaScript in XBL controls. It is possible for a malicious HTML mail to leverage this vulnerability to execute other JavaScript based attacks even when JavaScript is disabled. (CVE-2005-2261) A bug was found in the way Thunderbird handled certain JavaScript functions. It is possible for a malicious HTML mail to crash the client by executing malformed JavaScript code. (CVE-2005-2265) A bug was found in the way Thunderbird handled child frames. It is possible for a malicious framed HTML mail to steal sensitive information from its parent frame. (CVE-2005-2266) A bug was found in the way Thunderbird handled DOM node names. It is possible for a malicious HTML mail to overwrite a DOM node name, allowing certain privileged chrome actions to execute the malicious JavaScript. (CVE-2005-2269) A bug was found in the way Thunderbird cloned base objects. It is possible for HTML content to navigate up the prototype chain to gain access to privileged chrome objects. (CVE-2005-2270) Users of Thunderbird are advised to upgrade to this updated package that contains Thunderbird version 1.0.6 and is not vulnerable to these issues.

    description Vladimir V. Perepelitsa discovered a bug in Thunderbird's handling of anonymous functions during regular expression string replacement. A malicious HTML email could exploit this to capture a random block of client memory. (CAN-2005-0989) Georgi Guninski discovered that the types of certain XPInstall related JavaScript objects were not sufficiently validated when they were called. This could be exploited by malicious HTML email content to crash Thunderbird or even execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user. (CAN-2005-1159) Thunderbird did not properly verify the values of XML DOM nodes. By tricking the user to perform a common action like clicking on a link or opening the context menu, a malicious HTML email could exploit this to execute arbitrary JavaScript code with the full privileges of the user. (CAN-2005-1160) A variant of the attack described in CAN-2005-1160 (see USN-124-1) was discovered. Additional checks were added to make sure JavaScript eval and script objects are run with the privileges of the context that created them, not the potentially elevated privilege of the context calling them. (CAN-2005-1532) Scripts in XBL controls from web content continued to be run even when JavaScript was disabled. This could be combined with most script-based exploits to attack people running vulnerable versions who thought disabling JavaScript would protect them. (CAN-2005-2261) The function for version comparison in the addons installer did not properly verify the type of its argument. By passing specially crafted JavaScript objects to it, a malicious website could crash Thunderbird and possibly even execute arbitrary code with the privilege of the user account Thunderbird runs in. (CAN-2005-2265) The XHTML DOM node handler did not take namespaces into account when verifying node types based on their names. For example, an XHTML email could contain an tag with malicious contents, which would then be processed as the standard trusted HTML tag. By tricking an user to view a malicious email, this could be exploited to execute attacker-specified code with the full privileges of the user. (CAN-2005-2269) It was discovered that some objects were not created appropriately. This allowed malicious web content scripts to trace back the creation chain until they found a privileged object and execute code with higher privileges than allowed by the current site. (CAN-2005-2270) Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pena discovered that the run-mozilla.sh script created temporary files in an unsafe way when running with 'debugging' enabled. This could allow a symlink attack to create or overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CAN-2005-2353) The update for Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog) also fixes several less critical vulnerabilities which are not present in the Ubuntu 5.04 version. (MFSA-2005-02 to MFSA-2005-30; please see the following web site for details: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/known-vulnerabilities.html). We apologize for the huge delay of this update; we changed our update strategy for Mozilla products to make sure that such long delays will not happen again. Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    description When a popup is blocked the user is given the ability to open that popup through the popup-blocking status bar icon and, in Firefox, through the information bar. Doron Rosenberg noticed that popups which are permitted by the user were executed with elevated privileges, which could be abused to automatically install and execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user. (CAN-2005-1153) It was discovered that the browser did not start with a clean global JavaScript state for each new website. This allowed a malicious web page to define a global variable known to be used by a different site, allowing malicious code to be executed in the context of that site (for example, sending web mail or automatic purchasing). (CAN-2005-1154) Michael Krax discovered a flaw in the 'favicon' links handler. A malicious web page could define a favicon link tag as JavaScript, which could be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user. (CAN-2005-1155) Michael Krax found two flaws in the Search Plugin installation. This allowed malicious plugins to execute arbitrary code in the context of the current site. If the current page had elevated privileges (like 'about:plugins' or 'about:config'), the malicious plugin could even install malicious software when a search was performed. (CAN-2005-1156, CAN-2005-1157) Kohei Yoshino discovered two missing security checks when Firefox opens links in its sidebar. This allowed a malicious web page to construct a link that, when clicked on, could execute arbitrary JavaScript code with the privileges of the user. (CAN-2005-1158) Georgi Guninski discovered that the types of certain XPInstall related JavaScript objects were not sufficiently validated when they were called.

    description Secunia.com reported that one of the recent security patches in Firefox reintroduced the frame injection patch that was originally known as CAN-2004-0718. This allowed a malicious website to spoof the contents of other websites. (CAN-2005-1937) It was discovered that a malicious website could inject arbitrary scripts into a target site by loading it into a frame and navigating back to a previous JavaScript URL that contained an eval() call. This could be used to steal cookies or other confidential data from the target site. (MFSA 2005-42) Michael Krax, Georgi Guninski, and L. David Baron found that the security checks that prevent script injection could be bypassed by wrapping a javascript: url in another pseudo-protocol like 'view-source:' or 'jar:'. (CAN-2005-1531) A variant of the attack described in CAN-2005-1160 (see USN-124-1) was discovered. Additional checks were added to make sure JavaScript eval and script objects are run with the privileges of the context that created them, not the potentially elevated privilege of the context calling them. (CAN-2005-1532) In several places the browser user interface did not correctly distinguish between true user events, such as mouse clicks or keystrokes, and synthetic events genenerated by web content. This could be exploited by malicious websites to generate e. g. mouse clicks that install malicious plugins. Synthetic events are now prevented from reaching the browser UI entirely. (CAN-2005-2260) Scripts in XBL controls from web content continued to be run even when JavaScript was disabled. This could be combined with most script-based exploits to attack people running vulnerable versions who thought disabling JavaScript would protect them. (CAN-2005-2261) Matthew Mastracci discovered a flaw in the addons installation launcher. By forcing a page navigation immediately after calling the install method a callback function could end up running in the context of the new page selected by the attacker. This callback script could steal data from the new page such as cookies or passwords, or perform actions on the user's behalf such as make a purchase if the user is already logged into the target site. However, the default settings allow only http://addons.mozilla.org to bring up this install dialog. This could only be exploited if users have added untrustworthy sites to the installation whitelist, and if a malicious site can convince you to install from their site. (CAN-2005-2263) The function for version comparison in the addons installer did not properly verify the type of its argument. By passing specially crafted JavaScript objects to it, a malicious website could crash the browser and possibly even execute arbitrary code with the privilege of the user account Firefox runs in. (CAN-2005-2265) A child frame can call top.focus() even if the framing page comes from a different origin and has overridden the focus() routine. Andreas Sandblad discovered that the call is made in the context of the child frame. This could be exploited to steal cookies and passwords from the framed page, or take actions on behalf of a signed-in user. However, websites with above properties are not very common. (CAN-2005-2266) Alerts and prompts created by scripts in web pages were presented with the generic title [Javascript Application] which sometimes made it difficult to know which site created them. A malicious page could exploit this by causing a prompt to appear in front of a trusted site in an attempt to extract information such as passwords from the user. In the fixed version these prompts contain the hostname of the page which created it. (CAN-2005-2268) The XHTML DOM node handler did not take namespaces into account when verifying node types based on their names. For example, an XHTML document could contain an tag with malicious contents, which would then be processed as the standard trusted HTML tag. By tricking an user to view malicious websites, this could be exploited to execute attacker-specified code with the full privileges of the user. (CAN-2005-2269) It was discovered that some objects were not created appropriately. This allowed malicious web content scripts to trace back the creation chain until they found a privileged object and execute code with higher privileges than allowed by the current site. (CAN-2005-2270) The update for Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog) also fixes several vulnerabilities which are not present in the Ubuntu 5.04 version. Some of them could be exploited to execute arbitrary code with full user privileges if the user visited a malicious website. (MFSA-2005-01 to MFSA-2005-41; please see the following website for details: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/known-vulnerabilities.html). We apologize for the huge delay of this update; we changed our update strategy for Mozilla products to make sure that such long delays will not happen again. Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
