CWE CWE-362
CAPEC
  • Leveraging Race Conditions
    This attack targets a race condition occurring when multiple processes access and manipulate the same resource concurrently and the outcome of the execution depends on the particular order in which the access takes place. The attacker can leverage a race condition by "running the race", modifying the resource and modifying the normal execution flow. For instance a race condition can occur while accessing a file, the attacker can trick the system by replacing the original file with his version and cause the system to read the malicious file.
  • Leveraging Time-of-Check and Time-of-Use (TOCTOU) Race Conditions
    This attack targets a race condition occurring between the time of check (state) for a resource and the time of use of a resource. The typical example is the file access. The attacker can leverage a file access race condition by "running the race", meaning that he would modify the resource between the first time the target program accesses the file and the time the target program uses the file. During that period of time, the attacker could do something such as replace the file and cause an escalation of privilege.

    description The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 3.0.11. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues : - Multiple memory corruption vulnerabilities could potentially be exploited to execute arbitrary code. (MFSA 2009-24) - Certain invalid Unicode characters, when used as a part of IDN, can be displayed as a whitespace in the location bar. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to spoof the location bar. (MFSA 2009-25) - It may be possible for local resources loaded via 'file:' protocol to access any domain's cookies saved on a user's system. (MFSA 2009-26) - It may be possible to tamper with SSL data via non-200 responses to proxy CONNECT requests. (MFSA 2009-27) - A race condition exists in 'NPObjWrapper_NewResolve' when accessing the properties of a NPObject, a wrapped JSObject. This flaw could be potentially exploited to execute arbitrary code on the remote system. (MFSA 2009-28) - If the owner document of an element becomes null after garbage collection, then it may be possible to execute the event listeners within the wrong JavaScript context. An attacker could potentially exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges. (MFSA 2009-29) - When the 'file:' resource is loaded from the location bar, the resource inherits the principal of the previously loaded document. This could potentially allow unauthorized access to local files. (MFSA 2009-30) - While loading external scripts into XUL documents content-loading policies are not checked. (MFSA 2009-31) - It may be possible for scripts from page content to run with elevated privileges. (MFSA 2009-32)

    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2009:1095 : Updated firefox packages that fix several security issues are 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. XULRunner provides the XUL Runtime environment for Mozilla Firefox. 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-2009-1392, CVE-2009-1832, CVE-2009-1833, CVE-2009-1837, CVE-2009-1838, CVE-2009-1841) Multiple flaws were found in the processing of malformed, local file content. If a user loaded malicious, local content via the file:// URL, it was possible for that content to access other local data. (CVE-2009-1835, CVE-2009-1839) A script, privilege elevation flaw was found in the way Firefox loaded XML User Interface Language (XUL) scripts. Firefox and certain add-ons could load malicious content when certain policy checks did not happen. (CVE-2009-1840) A flaw was found in the way Firefox displayed certain Unicode characters in International Domain Names (IDN). If an IDN contained invalid characters, they may have been displayed as spaces, making it appear to the user that they were visiting a trusted site. (CVE-2009-1834) A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled error responses returned from proxy servers. If an attacker is able to conduct a man-in-the-middle attack against a Firefox instance that is using a proxy server, they may be able to steal sensitive information from the site the user is visiting. (CVE-2009-1836) For technical details regarding these flaws, refer to the Mozilla security advisories for Firefox 3.0.11. You can find a link to the Mozilla advisories in the References section of this errata. All Firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain Firefox version 3.0.11, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

(CVE-2009-1834) Gregory Fleischer, Adam Barth and Collin Jackson discovered that Firefox would allow access to local files from resources loaded via the file: protocol. If a user were tricked into downloading then opening a malicious file, an attacker could steal potentially sensitive information. (CVE-2009-1835, CVE-2009-1839) Shuo Chen, Ziqing Mao, Yi-Min Wang, and Ming Zhang discovered that Firefox did not properly handle error responses when connecting to a proxy server.

As a result, Firefox might load malicious content under certain circumstances. (CVE-2009-1840) It was discovered that Firefox could be made to run scripts with elevated privileges. If a user were tricked into viewing a malicious website, an attacker could cause a chrome privileged object, such as the browser sidebar, to run arbitrary code via interactions with the attacker controlled website.

    title openSUSE Security Update : MozillaFirefox (MozillaFirefox-1000)

    description Updated firefox packages that fix several security issues are 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. XULRunner provides the XUL Runtime environment for Mozilla Firefox. 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-2009-1392, CVE-2009-1832, CVE-2009-1833, CVE-2009-1837, CVE-2009-1838, CVE-2009-1841) Multiple flaws were found in the processing of malformed, local file content. If a user loaded malicious, local content via the file:// URL, it was possible for that content to access other local data. (CVE-2009-1835, CVE-2009-1839) A script, privilege elevation flaw was found in the way Firefox loaded XML User Interface Language (XUL) scripts. Firefox and certain add-ons could load malicious content when certain policy checks did not happen. (CVE-2009-1840) A flaw was found in the way Firefox displayed certain Unicode characters in International Domain Names (IDN). If an IDN contained invalid characters, they may have been displayed as spaces, making it appear to the user that they were visiting a trusted site. (CVE-2009-1834) A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled error responses returned from proxy servers. If an attacker is able to conduct a man-in-the-middle attack against a Firefox instance that is using a proxy server, they may be able to steal sensitive information from the site the user is visiting. (CVE-2009-1836) For technical details regarding these flaws, refer to the Mozilla security advisories for Firefox 3.0.11. You can find a link to the Mozilla advisories in the References section of this errata. All Firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain Firefox version 3.0.11, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
