ID CVE-2006-6499
Summary The js_dtoa function in Mozilla Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.1, 1.5.x before 1.5.0.9, Thunderbird before 1.5.0.9, and SeaMonkey before 1.0.7 overwrites memory instead of exiting when the floating point precision is reduced, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via any plugins that reduce the precision.

    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200701-04 (SeaMonkey: Multiple vulnerabilities) An anonymous researcher found evidence of memory corruption in the way SeaMonkey handles certain types of SVG comment DOM nodes. Georgi Guninski and David Bienvenu discovered buffer overflows in the processing of long 'Content-Type:' and long non-ASCII MIME email headers. Additionally, Frederik Reiss discovered a heap-based buffer overflow in the conversion of a CSS cursor. Several other issues with memory corruption were also fixed. SeaMonkey also contains less severe vulnerabilities involving JavaScript and Java. Impact : An attacker could entice a user to load malicious JavaScript or a malicious web page with a SeaMonkey application, possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user running those products. An attacker could also perform cross-site scripting attacks, leading to the exposure of sensitive information, like user credentials. Note that the execution of JavaScript or Java applets is disabled by default in the SeaMonkey email client, and enabling it is strongly discouraged. Workaround : There are no known workarounds for all the issues at this time.

    title Mozilla Thunderbird < 1.5.0.9 Multiple Vulnerabilities
  • NASL family Gentoo Local Security Checks
    NASL id GENTOO_GLSA-200701-02.NASL
    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200701-02 (Mozilla Firefox: Multiple vulnerabilities) An anonymous researcher found evidence of memory corruption in the way Mozilla Firefox handles certain types of SVG comment DOM nodes. Additionally, Frederik Reiss discovered a heap-based buffer overflow in the conversion of a CSS cursor. Other issues with memory corruption were also fixed. Mozilla Firefox also contains less severe vulnerabilities involving JavaScript and Java. Impact : An attacker could entice a user to view a specially crafted web page that will trigger one of the vulnerabilities, possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary code. It is also possible for an attacker to perform cross-site scripting attacks, leading to the exposure of sensitive information, like user credentials. Workaround : There are no known workarounds for all the issues at this time.
