Impact:
Exploitability:
CWE CWE-264
CAPEC
  • Accessing, Modifying or Executing Executable Files
    An attack of this type exploits a system's configuration that allows an attacker to either directly access an executable file, for example through shell access; or in a possible worst case allows an attacker to upload a file and then execute it. Web servers, ftp servers, and message oriented middleware systems which have many integration points are particularly vulnerable, because both the programmers and the administrators must be in synch regarding the interfaces and the correct privileges for each interface.
  • Leverage Executable Code in Non-Executable Files
    An attack of this type exploits a system's trust in configuration and resource files, when the executable loads the resource (such as an image file or configuration file) the attacker has modified the file to either execute malicious code directly or manipulate the target process (e.g. application server) to execute based on the malicious configuration parameters. Since systems are increasingly interrelated mashing up resources from local and remote sources the possibility of this attack occurring is high. The attack can be directed at a client system, such as causing buffer overrun through loading seemingly benign image files, as in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-028 where specially crafted JPEG files could cause a buffer overrun once loaded into the browser. Another example targets clients reading pdf files. In this case the attacker simply appends javascript to the end of a legitimate url for a pdf (http://www.gnucitizen.org/blog/danger-danger-danger/) http://path/to/pdf/file.pdf#whatever_name_you_want=javascript:your_code_here The client assumes that they are reading a pdf, but the attacker has modified the resource and loaded executable javascript into the client's browser process. The attack can also target server processes. The attacker edits the resource or configuration file, for example a web.xml file used to configure security permissions for a J2EE app server, adding role name "public" grants all users with the public role the ability to use the administration functionality. The server trusts its configuration file to be correct, but when they are manipulated, the attacker gains full control.
  • Blue Boxing
    This type of attack against older telephone switches and trunks has been around for decades. A tone is sent by an adversary to impersonate a supervisor signal which has the effect of rerouting or usurping command of the line. While the US infrastructure proper may not contain widespread vulnerabilities to this type of attack, many companies are connected globally through call centers and business process outsourcing. These international systems may be operated in countries which have not upgraded Telco infrastructure and so are vulnerable to Blue boxing. Blue boxing is a result of failure on the part of the system to enforce strong authorization for administrative functions. While the infrastructure is different than standard current applications like web applications, there are historical lessons to be learned to upgrade the access control for administrative functions.
  • Restful Privilege Elevation
    Rest uses standard HTTP (Get, Put, Delete) style permissions methods, but these are not necessarily correlated generally with back end programs. Strict interpretation of HTTP get methods means that these HTTP Get services should not be used to delete information on the server, but there is no access control mechanism to back up this logic. This means that unless the services are properly ACL'd and the application's service implementation are following these guidelines then an HTTP request can easily execute a delete or update on the server side. The attacker identifies a HTTP Get URL such as http://victimsite/updateOrder, which calls out to a program to update orders on a database or other resource. The URL is not idempotent so the request can be submitted multiple times by the attacker, additionally, the attacker may be able to exploit the URL published as a Get method that actually performs updates (instead of merely retrieving data). This may result in malicious or inadvertent altering of data on the server.
  • Target Programs with Elevated Privileges
    This attack targets programs running with elevated privileges. The attacker would try to leverage a bug in the running program and get arbitrary code to execute with elevated privileges. For instance an attacker would look for programs that write to the system directories or registry keys (such as HKLM, which stores a number of critical Windows environment variables). These programs are typically running with elevated privileges and have usually not been designed with security in mind. Such programs are excellent exploit targets because they yield lots of power when they break. The malicious user try to execute its code at the same level as a privileged system call.
  • Manipulating Input to File System Calls
    An attacker manipulates inputs to the target software which the target software passes to file system calls in the OS. The goal is to gain access to, and perhaps modify, areas of the file system that the target software did not intend to be accessible.

  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_MOZILLAFIREFOX-5890.NASL
    description The Mozilla Firefox browser was updated to version 2.0.0.19, fixing various security issues and stability problems. The following security issues were fixed : - Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported vulnerabilities in the session-restore feature by which content could be injected into an incorrect document storage location, including storage locations for other domains. An attacker could utilize these issues to violate the browser's same-origin policy and perform an XSS attack while SessionStore data is being restored. moz_bug_r_a4 also reported that one variant could be used by an attacker to run arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges. (MFSA 2008-69 / CVE-2008-5513) - Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported that an XBL binding, when attached to an unloaded document, can be used to violate the same-origin policy and execute arbitrary JavaScript within the context of a different website. moz_bug_r_a4 also reported two vulnerabilities by which page content can pollute XPCNativeWrappers and run arbitary JavaScript with chrome priviliges. Thunderbird shares the browser engine with Firefox and could be vulnerable if JavaScript were to be enabled in mail. This is not the default setting and we strongly discourage users from running JavaScript in mail. Workaround Disable JavaScript until a version containing these fixes can be installed. (MFSA 2008-68 / CVE-2008-5512 / CVE-2008-5511) - Kojima Hajime reported that unlike literal null characters which were handled correctly, the escaped form '\0' was ignored by the CSS parser and treated as if it was not present in the CSS input string. This issue could potentially be used to bypass script sanitization routines in web applications. The severity of this issue was determined to be low. (MFSA 2008-67 / CVE-2008-5510) - Perl developer Chip Salzenberg reported that certain control characters, when placed at the beginning of a URL, would lead to incorrect parsing resulting in a malformed URL being output by the parser. IBM researchers Justin Schuh, Tom Cross, and Peter William also reported a related symptom as part of their research that resulted in MFSA 2008-37. There was no direct security impact from this issue and its effect was limited to the improper rendering of hyperlinks containing specific characters. The severity of this issue was determined to be low. (MFSA 2008-66 / CVE-2008-5508) - Google security researcher Chris Evans reported that a website could access a limited amount of data from a different domain by loading a same-domain JavaScript URL which redirects to an off-domain target resource containing data which is not parsable as JavaScript. Upon attempting to load the data as JavaScript a syntax error is generated that can reveal some of the file context via the window.onerror DOM API. This issue could be used by a malicious website to steal private data from users who are authenticated on the redirected website. How much data could be at risk would depend on the format of the data and how the JavaScript parser attempts to interpret it. For most files the amount of data that can be recovered would be limited to the first word or two. Some data files might allow deeper probing with repeated loads. Thunderbird shares the browser engine with Firefox and could be vulnerable if JavaScript were to be enabled in mail.

The severity of this issue was determined to be moderate due to several mitigating factors: The target document requires a element in the XBL namespace in order to be read. The reader of the data needs to know the id attribute of the binding being read in advance. It is unlikely that web services will expose private data in the manner described above.

Upgrading to one of these products is a reliable workaround for this particular issue and it is also Mozilla's recommendation that the most current version of any Mozilla product be used. Alternatively, you can disable JavaScript until a version containing these fixes can be installed. (MFSA 2008-61 / CVE-2008-5503) - Mozilla developers identified and fixed several stability bugs in the browser engine used in Firefox and other Mozilla-based products. Some of these crashes showed evidence of memory corruption under certain circumstances and we presume that with enough effort at least some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code. Thunderbird shares the browser engine with Firefox and could be vulnerable if JavaScript were to be enabled in mail. This is not the default setting and we strongly discourage users from running JavaScript in mail. Without further investigation we cannot rule out the possibility that for some of these an attacker might be able to prepare memory for exploitation through some means other than JavaScript such as large images. Workaround Disable JavaScript until a version containing these fixes can be installed. (MFSA 2008-60 / CVE-2008-5500)

A website containing specially crafted content could potentially trick a Firefox user into surrendering sensitive information. (CVE-2008-5506, CVE-2008-5507) A flaw was found in the way Firefox stored attributes in XML User Interface Language (XUL) elements. A website could use this flaw to track users across browser sessions, even if users did not allow the site to store cookies in the victim's browser. (CVE-2008-5505) A flaw was found in the way malformed URLs were processed by Firefox. This flaw could prevent various URL sanitization mechanisms from properly parsing a malicious URL. (CVE-2008-5508) A flaw was found in Firefox's CSS parser. A malicious web page could inject NULL characters into a CSS input string, possibly bypassing an application's script sanitization routines. (CVE-2008-5510) For technical details regarding these flaws, please see the Mozilla security advisories for Firefox 3.0.5. You can find a link to the Mozilla advisories in the References section.

    description Several flaws were discovered in the browser engine. These problems could allow an attacker to crash the browser and possibly execute arbitrary code with user privileges. (CVE-2008-5500) Boris Zbarsky discovered that the same-origin check in Firefox could be bypassed by utilizing XBL-bindings. An attacker could exploit this to read data from other domains. (CVE-2008-5503) Marius Schilder discovered that Firefox did not properly handle redirects to an outside domain when an XMLHttpRequest was made to a same-origin resource. It's possible that sensitive information could be revealed in the XMLHttpRequest response. (CVE-2008-5506) Chris Evans discovered that Firefox did not properly protect a user's data when accessing a same-domain JavaScript URL that is redirected to an unparsable JavaScript off-site resource. If a user were tricked into opening a malicious website, an attacker may be able to steal a limited amount of private data. (CVE-2008-5507) Several flaws were discovered in the JavaScript engine.

    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2008:1036 : An updated firefox package that fixes various security issues is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5. 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. Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Firefox. (CVE-2008-5500, CVE-2008-5501, CVE-2008-5502, CVE-2008-5511, CVE-2008-5512, CVE-2008-5513) Several flaws were found in the way malformed content was processed. A website containing specially crafted content could potentially trick a Firefox user into surrendering sensitive information. (CVE-2008-5506, CVE-2008-5507) A flaw was found in the way Firefox stored attributes in XML User Interface Language (XUL) elements. A website could use this flaw to track users across browser sessions, even if users did not allow the site to store cookies in the victim's browser. (CVE-2008-5505) A flaw was found in the way malformed URLs were processed by Firefox. This flaw could prevent various URL sanitization mechanisms from properly parsing a malicious URL. (CVE-2008-5508) A flaw was found in Firefox's CSS parser. A malicious web page could inject NULL characters into a CSS input string, possibly bypassing an application's script sanitization routines. (CVE-2008-5510) For technical details regarding these flaws, please see the Mozilla security advisories for Firefox 3.0.5. You can find a link to the Mozilla advisories in the References section. Note: after the errata packages are installed, Firefox must be restarted for the update to take effect. All firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches that correct these issues.

    description An updated firefox package that fixes various security issues is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5. 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. Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Firefox. (CVE-2008-5500, CVE-2008-5501, CVE-2008-5502, CVE-2008-5511, CVE-2008-5512, CVE-2008-5513) Several flaws were found in the way malformed content was processed. A website containing specially crafted content could potentially trick a Firefox user into surrendering sensitive information. (CVE-2008-5506, CVE-2008-5507) A flaw was found in the way Firefox stored attributes in XML User Interface Language (XUL) elements. A website could use this flaw to track users across browser sessions, even if users did not allow the site to store cookies in the victim's browser. (CVE-2008-5505) A flaw was found in the way malformed URLs were processed by Firefox. This flaw could prevent various URL sanitization mechanisms from properly parsing a malicious URL. (CVE-2008-5508) A flaw was found in Firefox's CSS parser. A malicious web page could inject NULL characters into a CSS input string, possibly bypassing an application's script sanitization routines. (CVE-2008-5510) For technical details regarding these flaws, please see the Mozilla security advisories for Firefox 3.0.5. You can find a link to the Mozilla advisories in the References section. Note: after the errata packages are installed, Firefox must be restarted for the update to take effect. All firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches that correct these issues.

    description Several flaws were discovered in the browser engine. These problems could allow an attacker to crash the browser and possibly execute arbitrary code with user privileges. (CVE-2008-5500) Boris Zbarsky discovered that the same-origin check in Firefox could be bypassed by utilizing XBL-bindings. An attacker could exploit this to read data from other domains. (CVE-2008-5503) Several problems were discovered in the JavaScript engine. An attacker could exploit feed preview vulnerabilities to execute scripts from page content with chrome privileges. (CVE-2008-5504) Marius Schilder discovered that Firefox did not properly handle redirects to an outside domain when an XMLHttpRequest was made to a same-origin resource. It's possible that sensitive information could be revealed in the XMLHttpRequest response. (CVE-2008-5506) Chris Evans discovered that Firefox did not properly protect a user's data when accessing a same-domain JavaScript URL that is redirected to an unparsable JavaScript off-site resource. If a user were tricked into opening a malicious website, an attacker may be able to steal a limited amount of private data. (CVE-2008-5507) Chip Salzenberg, Justin Schuh, Tom Cross, and Peter William discovered Firefox did not properly parse URLs when processing certain control characters. (CVE-2008-5508) Kojima Hajime discovered that Firefox did not properly handle an escaped null character. An attacker may be able to exploit this flaw to bypass script sanitization. (CVE-2008-5510) Several flaws were discovered in the JavaScript engine. If a user were tricked into opening a malicious website, an attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary JavaScript code within the context of another website or with chrome privileges. (CVE-2008-5511, CVE-2008-5512) Flaws were discovered in the session-restore feature of Firefox. If a user were tricked into opening a malicious website, an attacker could exploit this to perform cross-site scripting attacks or execute arbitrary JavaScript code with chrome privileges.

  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_11_0_SEAMONKEY-081218.NASL
    description The Mozilla SeaMonkey browser suite was updated to version 1.1.14. The following security issues were fixed : MFSA 2008-68 / CVE-2008-5512 / CVE-2008-5511: Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported that an XBL binding, when attached to an unloaded document, can be used to violate the same-origin policy and execute arbitrary JavaScript within the context of a different website. moz_bug_r_a4 also reported two vulnerabilities by which page content can pollute XPCNativeWrappers and run arbitary JavaScript with chrome priviliges. Thunderbird shares the browser engine with Firefox and could be vulnerable if JavaScript were to be enabled in mail. This is not the default setting and we strongly discourage users from running JavaScript in mail. Workaround Disable JavaScript until a version containing these fixes can be installed. MFSA 2008-67 / CVE-2008-5510: Kojima Hajime reported that unlike literal null characters which were handled correctly, the escaped form '\0' was ignored by the CSS parser and treated as if it was not present in the CSS input string. This issue could potentially be used to bypass script sanitization routines in web applications. The severity of this issue was determined to be low. MFSA 2008-66 / CVE-2008-5508: Perl developer Chip Salzenberg reported that certain control characters, when placed at the beginning of a URL, would lead to incorrect parsing resulting in a malformed URL being output by the parser. IBM researchers Justin Schuh, Tom Cross, and Peter William also reported a related symptom as part of their research that resulted in MFSA 2008-37. There was no direct security impact from this issue and its effect was limited to the improper rendering of hyperlinks containing specific characters. The severity of this issue was determined to be low. MFSA 2008-65 / CVE-2008-5507: Google security researcher Chris Evans reported that a website could access a limited amount of data from a different domain by loading a same-domain JavaScript URL which redirects to an off-domain target resource containing data which is not parsable as JavaScript. Upon attempting to load the data as JavaScript a syntax error is generated that can reveal some of the file context via the window.onerror DOM API. This issue could be used by a malicious website to steal private data from users who are authenticated on the redirected website. How much data could be at risk would depend on the format of the data and how the JavaScript parser attempts to interpret it. For most files the amount of data that can be recovered would be limited to the first word or two. Some data files might allow deeper probing with repeated loads. Thunderbird shares the browser engine with Firefox and could be vulnerable if JavaScript were to be enabled in mail. This is not the default setting and we strongly discourage users from running JavaScript in mail. Workaround Disable JavaScript until a version containing these fixes can be installed. MFSA 2008-64 / CVE-2008-5506: Marius Schilder of Google Security reported that when a XMLHttpRequest is made to a same-origin resource which 302 redirects to a resource in a different domain, the response from the cross-domain resource is readable by the site issuing the XHR. Cookies marked HttpOnly were not readable, but other potentially sensitive data could be revealed in the XHR response including URL parameters and content in the response body. Thunderbird shares the browser engine with Firefox and could be vulnerable if JavaScript were to be enabled in mail. This is not the default setting and we strongly discourage users from running JavaScript in mail. Workaround Disable JavaScript until a version containing these fixes can be installed. MFSA 2008-61 / CVE-2008-5503: Mozilla developer Boris Zbarsky reported that XBL bindings could be used to read data from other domains, a violation of the same-origin policy. The severity of this issue was determined to be moderate due to several mitigating factors: The target document requires a element in the XBL namespace in order to be read. The reader of the data needs to know the id attribute of the binding being read in advance. It is unlikely that web services will expose private data in the manner described above.

MFSA 2008-66 / CVE-2008-5508: Perl developer Chip Salzenberg reported that certain control characters, when placed at the beginning of a URL, would lead to incorrect parsing resulting in a malformed URL being output by the parser. IBM researchers Justin Schuh, Tom Cross, and Peter William also reported a related symptom as part of their research that resulted in MFSA 2008-37. There was no direct security impact from this issue and its effect was limited to the improper rendering of hyperlinks containing specific characters. The severity of this issue was determined to be low. MFSA 2008-65 / CVE-2008-5507: Google security researcher Chris Evans reported that a website could access a limited amount of data from a different domain by loading a same-domain JavaScript URL which redirects to an off-domain target resource containing data which is not parsable as JavaScript. Upon attempting to load the data as JavaScript a syntax error is generated that can reveal some of the file context via the window.onerror DOM API. This issue could be used by a malicious website to steal private data from users who are authenticated on the redirected website. How much data could be at risk would depend on the format of the data and how the JavaScript parser attempts to interpret it. For most files the amount of data that can be recovered would be limited to the first word or two. Some data files might allow deeper probing with repeated loads. Thunderbird shares the browser engine with Firefox and could be vulnerable if JavaScript were to be enabled in mail. This is not the default setting and we strongly discourage users from running JavaScript in mail. Workaround Disable JavaScript until a version containing these fixes can be installed. MFSA 2008-64 / CVE-2008-5506: Marius Schilder of Google Security reported that when a XMLHttpRequest is made to a same-origin resource which 302 redirects to a resource in a different domain, the response from the cross-domain resource is readable by the site issuing the XHR. Cookies marked HttpOnly were not readable, but other potentially sensitive data could be revealed in the XHR response including URL parameters and content in the response body. Thunderbird shares the browser engine with Firefox and could be vulnerable if JavaScript were to be enabled in mail. This is not the default setting and we strongly discourage users from running JavaScript in mail. Workaround Disable JavaScript until a version containing these fixes can be installed. MFSA 2008-61 / CVE-2008-5503: Mozilla developer Boris Zbarsky reported that XBL bindings could be used to read data from other domains, a violation of the same-origin policy. The severity of this issue was determined to be moderate due to several mitigating factors: The target document requires a element in the XBL namespace in order to be read. The reader of the data needs to know the id attribute of the binding being read in advance. It is unlikely that web services will expose private data in the manner described above. Firefox 3 is not affected by this issue. Thunderbird shares the browser engine with Firefox and could be vulnerable if JavaScript were to be enabled in mail. This is not the default setting and we strongly discourage users from running JavaScript in mail. Workaround Products built from the Mozilla 1.9.0 branch and later, Firefox 3 for example, are not affected by this issue. Upgrading to one of these products is a reliable workaround for this particular issue and it is also Mozilla's recommendation that the most current version of any Mozilla product be used. Alternatively, you can disable JavaScript until a version containing these fixes can be installed. MFSA 2008-60 / CVE-2008-5500: Mozilla developers identified and fixed several stability bugs in the browser engine used in Firefox and other Mozilla-based products. Some of these crashes showed evidence of memory corruption under certain circumstances and we presume that with enough effort at least some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code. Thunderbird shares the browser engine with Firefox and could be vulnerable if JavaScript were to be enabled in mail. This is not the default setting and we strongly discourage users from running JavaScript in mail. Without further investigation we cannot rule out the possibility that for some of these an attacker might be able to prepare memory for exploitation through some means other than JavaScript such as large images.

    description Updated thunderbird packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client. Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed HTML mail content. An HTML mail message containing malicious content could cause Thunderbird to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2008-5500, CVE-2008-5501, CVE-2008-5502, CVE-2008-5511, CVE-2008-5512, CVE-2008-5513) Several flaws were found in the way malformed content was processed. An HTML mail message containing specially crafted content could potentially trick a Thunderbird user into surrendering sensitive information. (CVE-2008-5503, CVE-2008-5506, CVE-2008-5507) Note: JavaScript support is disabled by default in Thunderbird; the above issues are not exploitable unless JavaScript is enabled. A flaw was found in the way malformed URLs were processed by Thunderbird. This flaw could prevent various URL sanitization mechanisms from properly parsing a malicious URL. (CVE-2008-5508) All Thunderbird users should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues. All running instances of Thunderbird must be restarted for the update to take effect.

(CVE-2008-5506, CVE-2008-5507) A flaw was found in the way Firefox stored attributes in XML User Interface Language (XUL) elements. A website could use this flaw to track users across browser sessions, even if users did not allow the site to store cookies in the victim's browser. (CVE-2008-5505) A flaw was found in the way malformed URLs were processed by Firefox. This flaw could prevent various URL sanitization mechanisms from properly parsing a malicious URL. (CVE-2008-5508) A flaw was found in Firefox's CSS parser. A malicious web page could inject NULL characters into a CSS input string, possibly bypassing an application's script sanitization routines. (CVE-2008-5510) For technical details regarding these flaws, please see the Mozilla security advisories for Firefox 3.0.5. You can find a link to the Mozilla advisories in the References section.

    description The installed version of Firefox 3.0 is earlier than 3.0.5. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues : - There are several stability bugs in the browser engine that may lead to crashes with evidence of memory corruption. (MFSA 2008-60) - The 'persist' attribute in XUL elements can be used to store cookie-like information on a user's computer. (MFSA 2008-63) - Sensitive data may be disclosed in an XHR response when an XMLHttpRequest is made to a same-origin resource, which 302 redirects to a resource in a different domain. (MFSA 2008-64) - A website may be able to access a limited amount of data from a different domain by loading a same-domain JavaScript URL that redirects to an off-domain target resource containing data which is not parsable as JavaScript. (MFSA 2008-65) - Errors arise when parsing URLs with leading whitespace and control characters. (MFSA 2008-66) - An escaped null byte is ignored by the CSS parser and treated as if it was not present in the CSS input string. (MFSA 2008-67) - XSS and JavaScript privilege escalation are possible. (MFSA 2008-68) - XSS vulnerabilities in SessionStore may allow for violating the browser's same-origin policy and performing an XSS attack or running arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges. (MFSA 2008-69) - Creating a Select object with a very large length can result in memory exhaustion, causing a denial of service. (CVE-2009-2535)

    description Updated SeaMonkey packages that fix security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, and 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, email and newsgroup client, IRC chat client, and HTML editor. Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause SeaMonkey to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2008-5500, CVE-2008-5501, CVE-2008-5502, CVE-2008-5504, CVE-2008-5511, CVE-2008-5512, CVE-2008-5513) Several flaws were found in the way malformed content was processed. A website containing specially crafted content could potentially trick a SeaMonkey user into surrendering sensitive information. (CVE-2008-5503, CVE-2008-5506, CVE-2008-5507) A flaw was found in the way malformed URLs were processed by SeaMonkey. This flaw could prevent various URL sanitization mechanisms from properly parsing a malicious URL. (CVE-2008-5508) Note: after the errata packages are installed, SeaMonkey must be restarted for the update to take effect. All SeaMonkey users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues.
