    description Updated Mozilla Thunderbird packages fix various vulnerabilities : The run-mozilla.sh script, with debugging enabled, would allow local users to create or overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on temporary files (CVE-2005-2353). A bug in the way Thunderbird processes XBM images could be used to execute arbitrary code via a specially crafted XBM image file (CVE-2005-2701). A bug in the way Thunderbird handles certain Unicode sequences could be used to execute arbitrary code via viewing a specially crafted Unicode sequence (CVE-2005-2702). A bug in the way Thunderbird makes XMLHttp requests could be abused by a malicious web page to exploit other proxy or server flaws from the victim's machine; however, the default behaviour of the browser is to disallow this (CVE-2005-2703). A bug in the way Thunderbird implemented its XBL interface could be abused by a malicious web page to create an XBL binding in such a way as to allow arbitrary JavaScript execution with chrome permissions (CVE-2005-2704). An integer overflow in Thunderbird's JavaScript engine could be manipulated in certain conditions to allow a malicious web page to execute arbitrary code (CVE-2005-2705). A bug in the way Thunderbird displays about: pages could be used to execute JavaScript with chrome privileges (CVE-2005-2706). A bug in the way Thunderbird opens new windows could be used by a malicious web page to construct a new window without any user interface elements (such as address bar and status bar) that could be used to potentially mislead the user (CVE-2005-2707). A bug in the way Thunderbird proceesed URLs on the command line could be used to execute arbitary commands as the user running Thunderbird; this could be abused by clicking on a supplied link, such as from an instant messaging client (CVE-2005-2968). Tom Ferris reported that Thunderbird would crash when processing a domain name consisting solely of soft-hyphen characters due to a heap overflow when IDN processing results in an empty string after removing non-wrapping chracters, such as soft-hyphens. This could be exploited to run or or install malware on the user's computer (CVE-2005-2871). The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

    description A buffer overflow was discovered in the XBM image handler. By tricking an user into opening a specially crafted XBM image, an attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CAN-2005-2701) Mats Palmgren discovered a buffer overflow in the Unicode string parser. Unicode strings that contained 'zero-width non-joiner' characters caused a browser crash, which could possibly even exploited to execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CAN-2005-2702) Georgi Guninski reported an integer overflow in the JavaScript engine. This could be exploited to run arbitrary code under some conditions. (CAN-2005-2705) Peter Zelezny discovered that URLs which are passed to Thunderbird on the command line are not correctly protected against interpretation by the shell. If Thunderbird is configured as the default handler for 'mailto:' URLs, this could be exploited to execute arbitrary code with user privileges by tricking the user into clicking on a specially crafted URL (for example, in an email or chat client). (CAN-2005-2968) This update also fixes some less critical issues which are described at http://www.mozilla.org/security/announce/mfsa2005-58.html. (CAN-2005-2703, CAN-2005-2704, CAN-2005-2706, CAN-2005-2707) The 'enigmail' plugin has been updated to work with the new Thunderbird and Mozilla versions. 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 A Secunia Advisory reports : Peter Zelezny has discovered a vulnerability in Firefox, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system. The vulnerability is caused due to the shell script used to launch Firefox parsing shell commands that are enclosed within backticks in the URL provided via the command line. This can e.g. be exploited to execute arbitrary shell commands by tricking a user into following a malicious link in an external application which uses Firefox as the default browser.

    description An updated firefox package that fixes several security bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser. A bug was found in the way Firefox processes XBM image files. If a user views a specially crafted XBM file, it becomes possible to execute arbitrary code as the user running Firefox. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-2701 to this issue. A bug was found in the way Firefox processes certain Unicode sequences. It may be possible to execute arbitrary code as the user running Firefox if the user views a specially crafted Unicode sequence. (CVE-2005-2702) A bug was found in the way Firefox makes XMLHttp requests. It is possible that a malicious web page could leverage this flaw to exploit other proxy or server flaws from the victim's machine. It is also possible that this flaw could be leveraged to send XMLHttp requests to hosts other than the originator; the default behavior of the browser is to disallow this. (CVE-2005-2703) A bug was found in the way Firefox implemented its XBL interface. It may be possible for a malicious web page to create an XBL binding in such a way that would allow arbitrary JavaScript execution with chrome permissions. Please note that in Firefox 1.0.6 this issue is not directly exploitable and will need to leverage other unknown exploits. (CVE-2005-2704) An integer overflow bug was found in Firefox's JavaScript engine. Under favorable conditions, it may be possible for a malicious web page to execute arbitrary code as the user running Firefox. (CVE-2005-2705) A bug was found in the way Firefox displays about: pages. It is possible for a malicious web page to open an about: page, such as about:mozilla, in such a way that it becomes possible to execute JavaScript with chrome privileges. (CVE-2005-2706) A bug was found in the way Firefox opens new windows. It is possible for a malicious website to construct a new window without any user interface components, such as the address bar and the status bar. This window could then be used to mislead the user for malicious purposes. (CVE-2005-2707) A bug was found in the way Firefox processes URLs passed to it on the command line. If a user passes a malformed URL to Firefox, such as clicking on a link in an instant messaging program, it is possible to execute arbitrary commands as the user running Firefox. (CVE-2005-2968) Users of Firefox are advised to upgrade to this updated package that contains Firefox version 1.0.7 and is not vulnerable to these issues.
