ID CVE-2006-2783
Summary Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird before 1.5.0.4 strip the Unicode Byte-order-Mark (BOM) from a UTF-8 page before the page is passed to the parser, which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via a BOM sequence in the middle of a dangerous tag such as SCRIPT.

CWE CWE-79
CAPEC
  • Cross Site Scripting through Log Files
    An attacker may leverage a system weakness where logs are susceptible to log injection to insert scripts into the system's logs. If these logs are later viewed by an administrator through a thin administrative interface and the log data is not properly HTML encoded before being written to the page, the attackers' scripts stored in the log will be executed in the administrative interface with potentially serious consequences. This attack pattern is really a combination of two other attack patterns: log injection and stored cross site scripting.
  • Embedding Scripts in Non-Script Elements
    This attack is a form of Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) where malicious scripts are embedded in elements that are not expected to host scripts such as image tags (<img>), comments in XML documents (< !-CDATA->), etc. These tags may not be subject to the same input validation, output validation, and other content filtering and checking routines, so this can create an opportunity for an attacker to tunnel through the application's elements and launch a XSS attack through other elements. As with all remote attacks, it is important to differentiate the ability to launch an attack (such as probing an internal network for unpatched servers) and the ability of the remote attacker to collect and interpret the output of said attack.
  • Embedding Scripts within Scripts
    An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities that are brought on by allowing remote hosts to execute scripts. The attacker leverages this capability to execute scripts to execute his/her own script by embedding it within other scripts that the target software is likely to execute. The attacker must have the ability to inject script into script that is likely to be executed. If this is done, then the attacker can potentially launch a variety of probes and attacks against the web server's local environment, in many cases the so-called DMZ, back end resources the web server can communicate with, and other hosts. With the proliferation of intermediaries, such as Web App Firewalls, network devices, and even printers having JVMs and Web servers, there are many locales where an attacker can inject malicious scripts. Since this attack pattern defines scripts within scripts, there are likely privileges to execute said attack on the host. Of course, these attacks are not solely limited to the server side, client side scripts like Ajax and client side JavaScript can contain malicious scripts as well. In general all that is required is for there to be sufficient privileges to execute a script, but not protected against writing.
  • Cross-Site Scripting in Error Pages
    An attacker distributes a link (or possibly some other query structure) with a request to a third party web server that is malformed and also contains a block of exploit code in order to have the exploit become live code in the resulting error page. When the third party web server receives the crafted request and notes the error it then creates an error message that echoes the malformed message, including the exploit. Doing this converts the exploit portion of the message into to valid language elements that are executed by the viewing browser. When a victim executes the query provided by the attacker the infected error message error message is returned including the exploit code which then runs in the victim's browser. XSS can result in execution of code as well as data leakage (e.g. session cookies can be sent to the attacker). This type of attack is especially dangerous since the exploit appears to come from the third party web server, who the victim may trust and hence be more vulnerable to deception.
  • Cross-Site Scripting Using Alternate Syntax
    The attacker uses alternate forms of keywords or commands that result in the same action as the primary form but which may not be caught by filters. For example, many keywords are processed in a case insensitive manner. If the site's web filtering algorithm does not convert all tags into a consistent case before the comparison with forbidden keywords it is possible to bypass filters (e.g., incomplete black lists) by using an alternate case structure. For example, the "script" tag using the alternate forms of "Script" or "ScRiPt" may bypass filters where "script" is the only form tested. Other variants using different syntax representations are also possible as well as using pollution meta-characters or entities that are eventually ignored by the rendering engine. The attack can result in the execution of otherwise prohibited functionality.
  • Cross-Site Scripting Using MIME Type Mismatch
    An attacker creates a file with scripting content but where the specified MIME type of the file is such that scripting is not expected. Some browsers will detect that the specified MIME type of the file does not match the actual type of the content and will automatically switch to using an interpreter for the real content type. If the browser does not invoke script filters before doing this, the attackers' script may run on the target unsanitized. For example, the MIME type text/plain may be used where the actual content is text/javascript or text/html. Since text does not contain scripting instructions, the stated MIME type would indicate that filtering is unnecessary. However, if the target application subsequently determines the file's real type and invokes the appropriate interpreter, scripted content could be invoked. In another example, img tags in HTML content could reference a renderable type file instead of an expected image file. The file extension and MIME type can describe an image file, but the file content can be text/javascript or text/html resulting in script execution. If the browser assumes all references in img tags are images, and therefore do not need to be filtered for scripts, this would bypass content filters. In a cross-site scripting attack, the attacker tricks the victim into accessing a URL that uploads a script file with an incorrectly specified MIME type. If the victim's browser switches to the appropriate interpreter without filtering, the attack will execute as a standard XSS attack, possibly revealing the victim's cookies or executing arbitrary script in their browser.
  • Cross-Site Scripting in Attributes
    The attacker inserts commands to perform cross-site scripting (XSS) actions in HTML attributes. Many filters do not adequately sanitize attributes against the presence of potentially dangerous commands even if they adequately sanitize tags. For example, dangerous expressions could be inserted into a style attribute in an anchor tag, resulting in the execution of malicious code when the resulting page is rendered. If a victim is tricked into viewing the rendered page the attack proceeds like a normal XSS attack, possibly resulting in the loss of sensitive cookies or other malicious activities.
  • Cross-Site Scripting via Encoded URI Schemes
    An attack of this type exploits the ability of most browsers to interpret "data", "javascript" or other URI schemes as client-side executable content placeholders. This attack consists of passing a malicious URI in an anchor tag HREF attribute or any other similar attributes in other HTML tags. Such malicious URI contains, for example, a base64 encoded HTML content with an embedded cross-site scripting payload. The attack is executed when the browser interprets the malicious content i.e., for example, when the victim clicks on the malicious link.
  • Cross-Site Scripting Using Doubled Characters, e.g. %3C%3Cscript
    The attacker bypasses input validation by using doubled characters in order to perform a cross-site scripting attack. Some filters fail to recognize dangerous sequences if they are preceded by repeated characters. For example, by doubling the < before a script command, (<<script or %3C%3script using URI encoding) the filters of some web applications may fail to recognize the presence of a script tag. If the targeted server is vulnerable to this type of bypass, the attacker can create a crafted URL or other trap to cause a victim to view a page on the targeted server where the malicious content is executed, as per a normal XSS attack.
  • Cross-Site Scripting Using Flash
    An attacker injects malicious script to global parameters in a Flash movie via a crafted URL. The malicious script is executed in the context of the Flash movie. As such, this is a form of Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), but the abilities granted to the Flash movie make this attack more flexible.
  • Cross-Site Scripting with Masking through Invalid Characters in Identifiers
    The attacker inserts invalid characters in identifiers to bypass application filtering of input. Filters may not scan beyond invalid characters but during later stages of processing content that follows these invalid characters may still be processed. This allows the attacker to sneak prohibited commands past filters and perform normally prohibited operations. Invalid characters may include null, carriage return, line feed or tab in an identifier. Successful bypassing of the filter can result in a XSS attack, resulting in the disclosure of web cookies or possibly other results.
  • Embedding Scripts in HTTP Query Strings
    A variant of cross-site scripting called "reflected" cross-site scripting, the HTTP Query Strings attack consists of passing a malicious script inside an otherwise valid HTTP request query string. This is of significant concern for sites that rely on dynamic, user-generated content such as bulletin boards, news sites, blogs, and web enabled administration GUIs. The malicious script may steal session data, browse history, probe files, or otherwise execute attacks on the client side. Once the attacker has prepared the malicious HTTP query it is sent to a victim user (perhaps by email, IM, or posted on an online forum), who clicks on a normal looking link that contains a poison query string. This technique can be made more effective through the use of services like http://tinyurl.com/, which makes very small URLs that will redirect to very large, complex ones. The victim will not know what he is really clicking on.
  • Simple Script Injection
    An attacker embeds malicious scripts in content that will be served to web browsers. The goal of the attack is for the target software, the client-side browser, to execute the script with the users' privilege level. An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities that are brought on by allowing remote hosts to execute code and scripts. Web browsers, for example, have some simple security controls in place, but if a remote attacker is allowed to execute scripts (through injecting them in to user-generated content like bulletin boards) then these controls may be bypassed. Further, these attacks are very difficult for an end user to detect.
  • AJAX Fingerprinting
    This attack utilizes the frequent client-server roundtrips in Ajax conversation to scan a system. While Ajax does not open up new vulnerabilities per se, it does optimize them from an attacker point of view. In many XSS attacks the attacker must get a "hole in one" and successfully exploit the vulnerability on the victim side the first time, once the client is redirected the attacker has many chances to engage in follow on probes, but there is only one first chance. In a widely used web application this is not a major problem because 1 in a 1,000 is good enough in a widely used application. A common first step for an attacker is to footprint the environment to understand what attacks will work. Since footprinting relies on enumeration, the conversational pattern of rapid, multiple requests and responses that are typical in Ajax applications enable an attacker to look for many vulnerabilities, well-known ports, network locations and so on.
  • Embedding Script (XSS) in HTTP Headers
    An attack of this type exploits web applications that generate web content, such as links in a HTML page, based on unvalidated or improperly validated data submitted by other actors. XSS in HTTP Headers attacks target the HTTP headers which are hidden from most users and may not be validated by web applications.
  • XSS in IMG Tags
    Image tags are an often overlooked, but convenient, means for a Cross Site Scripting attack. The attacker can inject script contents into an image (IMG) tag in order to steal information from a victim's browser and execute malicious scripts.

[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.

This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. SeaMonkey is an open source Web browser, advanced email and newsgroup client, IRC chat client, and HTML editor. The Mozilla Foundation has discontinued support for the Mozilla Suite. This update deprecates the Mozilla Suite in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 in favor of the supported SeaMonkey Suite. This update also resolves a number of outstanding Mozilla security issues : Several flaws were found in the way Mozilla processed certain JavaScript actions. A malicious web page could execute arbitrary JavaScript instructions with the permissions of 'chrome', allowing the page to steal sensitive information or install browser malware. (CVE-2006-2776, CVE-2006-2784, CVE-2006-2785, CVE-2006-2787) Several denial of service flaws were found in the way Mozilla processed certain web content. A malicious web page could crash firefox or possibly execute arbitrary code. These issues to date were not proven to be exploitable, but do show evidence of memory corruption. (CVE-2006-2779, CVE-2006-2780) A double-free flaw was found in the way Mozilla-mail displayed malformed inline vcard attachments. If a victim viewed an email message containing a carefully crafted vcard it could execute arbitrary code as the user running Mozilla-mail. (CVE-2006-2781) A cross site scripting flaw was found in the way Mozilla processed Unicode Byte-order-Mark (BOM) markers in UTF-8 web pages. A malicious web page could execute a script within the browser that a web input sanitizer could miss due to a malformed 'script' tag. (CVE-2006-2783) A form file upload flaw was found in the way Mozilla handled JavaScript input object mutation. A malicious web page could upload an arbitrary local file at form submission time without user interaction. (CVE-2006-2782) A denial of service flaw was found in the way Mozilla called the crypto.signText() JavaScript function. A malicious web page could crash the browser if the victim had a client certificate loaded. (CVE-2006-2778) Two HTTP response smuggling flaws were found in the way Mozilla processed certain invalid HTTP response headers. A malicious website could return specially crafted HTTP response headers which may bypass HTTP proxy restrictions. (CVE-2006-2786) A double free flaw was found in the way the nsIX509::getRawDER method was called. If a victim visited a carefully crafted web page it could execute arbitrary code as the user running Mozilla. (CVE-2006-2788) Users of Mozilla are advised to upgrade to this update, which contains SeaMonkey version 1.0.2 that is not vulnerable to these issues.

    description A number of security vulnerabilities have been discovered and corrected in the latest Mozilla Thunderbird program. Corporate 3 had contained the Mozilla suite however, due to the support cycle for Mozilla, it was felt that upgrading Mozilla to Firefox and Thunderbird would allow for better future support for Corporate 3 users. To that end, the latest Thunderbird is being provided for Corporate 3 users which fix all known vulnerabilities up to version 1.5.0.5, as well as providing new and enhanced features. Corporate users who were using Mozilla for mail may need to explicitly install the new mozilla-thunderbird packages. For 2006 users, no explicit installs are necessary. The following CVE names have been corrected with this update: CVE-2006-2775, CVE-2006-2776, CVE-2006-2778, CVE-2006-2779, CVE-2006-2780, CVE-2006-2781, CVE-2006-2783, CVE-2006-2787, CVE-2006-3803, CVE-2006-3804, CVE-2006-3806, CVE-2006-3807, CVE-2006-3113, CVE-2006-3802, CVE-2006-3805, CVE-2006-3809, CVE-2006-3810, CVE-2006-3811, CVE-2006-3812.

    description 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). Mikolaj Habryn discovered a buffer overflow in the crypto.signText() function. By sending an email with malicious JavaScript to an user, and that user enabled JavaScript in Thunderbird (which is not the default and not recommended), 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) 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, Thunderbird would still execute them since BOM markers are filtered out before processing a mail containing JavaScript. (MFSA 2006-42, CVE-2006-2783) 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 Thunderbird and the proxy server, a malicious HTML email 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) It was discovered that JavaScript run via EvalInSandbox() can escape the sandbox. Malicious scripts received in emails containing JavaScript could use these privileges to execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (MFSA 2006-31, CVE-2006-2787) The 'enigmail' plugin has been updated to work with the new Thunderbird version. 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 Updated SeaMonkey packages that fix several security bugs in the mozilla package are 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. SeaMonkey is an open source Web browser, advanced email and newsgroup client, IRC chat client, and HTML editor. The Mozilla Foundation has discontinued support for the Mozilla Suite. This update deprecates the Mozilla Suite in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 in favor of the supported SeaMonkey Suite. This update also resolves a number of outstanding Mozilla security issues : Several flaws were found in the way SeaMonkey processed certain JavaScript actions. A malicious web page could execute arbitrary JavaScript instructions with the permissions of 'chrome', allowing the page to steal sensitive information or install browser malware. (CVE-2006-2776, CVE-2006-2784, CVE-2006-2785, CVE-2006-2787, CVE-2006-3807, CVE-2006-3809, CVE-2006-3812) Several denial of service flaws were found in the way SeaMonkey processed certain web content. A malicious web page could crash the browser or possibly execute arbitrary code as the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2006-2779, CVE-2006-2780, CVE-2006-3801, CVE-2006-3677, CVE-2006-3113, CVE-2006-3803, CVE-2006-3805, CVE-2006-3806, CVE-2006-3811) Two flaws were found in the way SeaMonkey-mail displayed malformed inline vcard attachments. If a victim viewed an email message containing a carefully crafted vcard it was possible to execute arbitrary code as the user running Mozilla-mail. (CVE-2006-2781, CVE-2006-3804) A cross-site scripting flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey processed Unicode Byte-Order-Mark (BOM) markers in UTF-8 web pages. A malicious web page could execute a script within the browser that a web input sanitizer could miss due to a malformed 'script' tag. (CVE-2006-2783) Several flaws were found in the way SeaMonkey processed certain JavaScript actions. A malicious web page could conduct a cross-site scripting attack or steal sensitive information (such as cookies owned by other domains). (CVE-2006-3802, CVE-2006-3810) A form file upload flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handled JavaScript input object mutation. A malicious web page could upload an arbitrary local file at form submission time without user interaction. (CVE-2006-2782) A denial of service flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey called the crypto.signText() JavaScript function. A malicious web page could crash the browser if the victim had a client certificate loaded. (CVE-2006-2778) Two HTTP response smuggling flaws were found in the way SeaMonkey processed certain invalid HTTP response headers. A malicious website could return specially crafted HTTP response headers which may bypass HTTP proxy restrictions. (CVE-2006-2786) A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey processed Proxy AutoConfig scripts. A malicious Proxy AutoConfig server could execute arbitrary JavaScript instructions with the permissions of 'chrome', allowing the page to steal sensitive information or install browser malware. (CVE-2006-3808) A double free flaw was found in the way the nsIX509::getRawDER method was called. If a victim visited a carefully crafted web page, it was possible to execute arbitrary code as the user running Mozilla. (CVE-2006-2788) Users of Mozilla are advised to upgrade to this update, which contains SeaMonkey version 1.0.3 that corrects these issues.

    title Debian DSA-1134-1 : mozilla-thunderbird - several vulnerabilities
  • NASL family Ubuntu Local Security Checks

    description USN-297-1 fixed several vulnerabilities in Thunderbird 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). Mikolaj Habryn discovered a buffer overflow in the crypto.signText() function. By sending an email with malicious JavaScript to an user, and that user enabled JavaScript in Thunderbird (which is not the default and not recommended), 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) 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, Thunderbird would still execute them since BOM markers are filtered out before processing a mail containing JavaScript. (MFSA 2006-42, CVE-2006-2783) 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 Thunderbird and the proxy server, a malicious HTML email 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 web site. (MFSA 2006-33, CVE-2006-2786) It was discovered that JavaScript run via EvalInSandbox() can escape the sandbox. Malicious scripts received in emails containing JavaScript could use these privileges to execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (MFSA 2006-31, CVE-2006-2787). 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 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.

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.
