The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following vulnerabilities : - CVE-2006-1942 Eric Foley discovered that a user can be tricked to expose a local file to a remote attacker by displaying a local file as image in connection with other vulnerabilities. [MFSA-2006-39] - CVE-2006-2775 XUL attributes are associated with the wrong URL under certain circumstances, which might allow remote attackers to bypass restrictions. [MFSA-2006-35] - CVE-2006-2776 Paul Nickerson discovered that content-defined setters on an object prototype were getting called by privileged user interface code, and 'moz_bug_r_a4' demonstrated that the higher privilege level could be passed along to the content-defined attack code. [MFSA-2006-37] - CVE-2006-2777 A vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code and create notifications that are executed in a privileged context. [MFSA-2006-43] - CVE-2006-2778 Mikolaj Habryn discovered a buffer overflow in the crypto.signText function that allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via certain optional Certificate Authority name arguments. [MFSA-2006-38] - CVE-2006-2779 Mozilla team members discovered several crashes during testing of the browser engine showing evidence of memory corruption which may also lead to the execution of arbitrary code. This problem has only partially been corrected. [MFSA-2006-32] - CVE-2006-2780 An integer overflow allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service and may permit the execution of arbitrary code. [MFSA-2006-32] - CVE-2006-2782 Chuck McAuley discovered that a text input box can be pre-filled with a filename and then turned into a file-upload control, allowing a malicious website to steal any local file whose name they can guess. [MFSA-2006-41, MFSA-2006-23, CVE-2006-1729] - CVE-2006-2783 Masatoshi Kimura discovered that the Unicode Byte-order-Mark (BOM) is stripped from UTF-8 pages during the conversion to Unicode before the parser sees the web page, which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. [MFSA-2006-42] - CVE-2006-2784 Paul Nickerson discovered that the fix for CVE-2005-0752 can be bypassed using nested javascript: URLs, allowing the attacker to execute privileged code. [MFSA-2005-34, MFSA-2006-36] - CVE-2006-2785 Paul Nickerson demonstrated that if an attacker could convince a user to right-click on a broken image and choose 'View Image' from the context menu then he could get JavaScript to run. [MFSA-2006-34] - CVE-2006-2786 Kazuho Oku discovered that Mozilla's lenient handling of HTTP header syntax may allow remote attackers to trick the browser to interpret certain responses as if they were responses from two different sites. [MFSA-2006-33] - CVE-2006-2787 The Mozilla researcher 'moz_bug_r_a4' discovered that JavaScript run via EvalInSandbox can escape the sandbox and gain elevated privilege. [MFSA-2006-31]

    description USN-296-1 fixed several vulnerabilities in Firefox for the Ubuntu 6.06 LTS release. This update provides the corresponding fixes for Ubuntu 5.04 and Ubuntu 5.10. For reference, these are the details of the original USN : Jonas Sicking discovered that under some circumstances persisted XUL attributes are associated with the wrong URL. A malicious website could exploit this to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user. (MFSA 2006-35, CVE-2006-2775) Paul Nickerson discovered that content-defined setters on an object prototype were getting called by privileged UI code. It was demonstrated that this could be exploited to run arbitrary web script with full user privileges (MFSA 2006-37, CVE-2006-2776). A similar attack was discovered by moz_bug_r_a4 that leveraged SelectionObject notifications that were called in privileged context. (MFSA 2006-43, CVE-2006-2777) Mikolaj Habryn discovered a buffer overflow in the crypto.signText() function. By tricking a user to visit a site with an SSL certificate with specially crafted optional Certificate Authority name arguments, this could potentially be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (MFSA 2006-38, CVE-2006-2778) The Mozilla developer team discovered several bugs that lead to crashes with memory corruption. These might be exploitable by malicious websites to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user. (MFSA 2006-32, CVE-2006-2779, CVE-2006-2780, CVE-2006-2788) Chuck McAuley reported that the fix for CVE-2006-1729 (file stealing by changing input type) was not sufficient to prevent all variants of exploitation. (MFSA 2006-41, CVE-2006-2782) Masatoshi Kimura found a way to bypass web input sanitizers which filter out JavaScript. By inserting 'Unicode Byte-order-Mark (BOM)' characters into the HTML code (e. g. ''), these filters might not recognize the tags anymore; however, Firefox would still execute them since BOM markers are filtered out before processing the page. (MFSA 2006-42, CVE-2006-2783) Paul Nickerson noticed that the fix for CVE-2005-0752 (JavaScript privilege escalation on the plugins page) was not sufficient to prevent all variants of exploitation. (MFSA 2006-36, CVE-2006-2784) Paul Nickerson demonstrated that if an attacker could convince a user to right-click on a broken image and choose 'View Image' from the context menu then he could get JavaScript to run on a site of the attacker's choosing. This could be used to steal login cookies or other confidential information from the target site. (MFSA 2006-34, CVE-2006-2785) Kazuho Oku discovered various ways to perform HTTP response smuggling when used with certain proxy servers. Due to different interpretation of nonstandard HTTP headers in Firefox and the proxy server, a malicious website can exploit this to send back two responses to one request. The second response could be used to steal login cookies or other sensitive data from another opened website. (MFSA 2006-33, CVE-2006-2786). 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.

(MFSA 2006-43, CVE-2006-2777) Mikolaj Habryn discovered a buffer overflow in the crypto.signText() function. By tricking a user to visit a site with an SSL certificate with specially crafted optional Certificate Authority name arguments, this could potentially be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (MFSA 2006-38, CVE-2006-2778) The Mozilla developer team discovered several bugs that lead to crashes with memory corruption. These might be exploitable by malicious websites to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user. (MFSA 2006-32, CVE-2006-2779, CVE-2006-2780) Masatoshi Kimura discovered a memory corruption (double-free) when processing a large VCard with invalid base64 characters in it. By sending a maliciously crafted set of VCards to a user, this could potentially be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (MFSA 2006-40, CVE-2006-2781) Chuck McAuley reported that the fix for CVE-2006-1729 (file stealing by changing input type) was not sufficient to prevent all variants of exploitation. (MFSA 2006-41, CVE-2006-2782) Masatoshi Kimura found a way to bypass web input sanitizers which filter out JavaScript. By inserting 'Unicode Byte-order-Mark (BOM)' characters into the HTML code (e. g. ''), these filters might not recognize the tags anymore; however, Mozilla would still execute them since BOM markers are filtered out before processing the page. (MFSA 2006-42, CVE-2006-2783) Paul Nickerson noticed that the fix for CVE-2005-0752 (JavaScript privilege escalation on the plugins page) was not sufficient to prevent all variants of exploitation. (MFSA 2006-36, CVE-2006-2784) Paul Nickerson demonstrated that if an attacker could convince a user to right-click on a broken image and choose 'View Image' from the context menu then he could get JavaScript to run on a site of the attacker's choosing. This could be used to steal login cookies or other confidential information from the target site. (MFSA 2006-34, CVE-2006-2785) Kazuho Oku discovered various ways to perform HTTP response smuggling when used with certain proxy servers. Due to different interpretation of nonstandard HTTP headers in Mozilla and the proxy server, a malicious website can exploit this to send back two responses to one request. The second response could be used to steal login cookies or other sensitive data from another opened website. (MFSA 2006-33, CVE-2006-2786). 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.
