    title SuSE 10 Security Update : Mozilla Firefox (ZYPP Patch Number 2423)
  • 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.
