ID CVE-2009-3076
Summary Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.14 does not properly implement certain dialogs associated with the (1) pkcs11.addmodule and (2) pkcs11.deletemodule operations, which makes it easier for remote attackers to trick a user into installing or removing an arbitrary PKCS11 module.

    description An updated thunderbird package that fixes several security issues is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. 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 with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2009-2462, CVE-2009-2463, CVE-2009-2466, CVE-2009-3072, CVE-2009-3075, CVE-2009-3380, CVE-2009-3979, CVE-2010-0159) A use-after-free flaw was found in Thunderbird. An attacker could use this flaw to crash Thunderbird or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2009-3077) A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the Thunderbird string to floating point conversion routines. An HTML mail message containing malicious JavaScript could crash Thunderbird or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2009-0689) A use-after-free flaw was found in Thunderbird. Under low memory conditions, viewing an HTML mail message containing malicious content could result in Thunderbird executing arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2009-1571) A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird created temporary file names for downloaded files. If a local attacker knows the name of a file Thunderbird is going to download, they can replace the contents of that file with arbitrary contents. (CVE-2009-3274) A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird displayed a right-to-left override character when downloading a file. In these cases, the name displayed in the title bar differed from the name displayed in the dialog body. An attacker could use this flaw to trick a user into downloading a file that has a file name or extension that is different from what the user expected. (CVE-2009-3376) A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird processed SOCKS5 proxy replies. A malicious SOCKS5 server could send a specially crafted reply that would cause Thunderbird to crash. (CVE-2009-2470) Descriptions in the dialogs when adding and removing PKCS #11 modules were not informative. An attacker able to trick a user into installing a malicious PKCS #11 module could use this flaw to install their own Certificate Authority certificates on a user's machine, making it possible to trick the user into believing they are viewing trusted content or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2009-3076) All Thunderbird users should upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these issues. All running instances of Thunderbird must be restarted for the update to take effect.

    description This update brings the Mozilla Firefox browser to the 3.0.14 stable release. It also fixes various security issues: MFSA 2009-47 / CVE-2009-3069 / CVE-2009-3070 / CVE-2009-3071 / CVE-2009-3072 / CVE-2009-3073 / CVE-2009-30 / CVE-2009-3075: Mozilla developers and community members 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. MFSA 2009-48 / CVE-2009-3076: Mozilla security researcher Jesse Rudermanreported that when security modules were added or removed via pkcs11.addmodule or pkcs11.deletemodule, the resulting dialog was not sufficiently informative. Without sufficient warning, an attacker could entice a victim to install a malicious PKCS11 module and affect the cryptographic integrity of the victim's browser. Security researcher Dan Kaminsky reported that this issue had not been fixed in Firefox 3.0 and that under certain circumstances pkcs11 modules could be installed from a remote location. Firefox 3.5 releases are not affected. MFSA 2009-49 / CVE-2009-3077: An anonymous security researcher, via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative, reported that the columns of a XUL tree element could be manipulated in a particular way which would leave a pointer owned by the column pointing to freed memory. An attacker could potentially use this vulnerability to crash a victim's browser and run arbitrary code on the victim's computer. MFSA 2009-50 / CVE-2009-3078: Security researcher Juan Pablo Lopez Yacubian reported that the default Windows font used to render the locationbar and other text fields was improperly displaying certain Unicode characters with tall line-height. In such cases the tall line-height would cause the rest of the text in the input field to be scrolled vertically out of view. An attacker could use this vulnerability to prevent a user from seeing the URL of a malicious site. Corrie Sloot also independently reported this issue to Mozilla. MFSA 2009-51 / CVE-2009-3079: Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported that the BrowserFeedWriter could be leveraged to run JavaScript code from web content with elevated privileges. Using this vulnerability, an attacker could construct an object containing malicious JavaScript and cause the FeedWriter to process the object, running the malicious code with chrome privileges. Thunderbird does not support the BrowserFeedWriter object and is not vulnerable in its default configuration. Thunderbird might be vulnerable if the user has installed any add-on which adds a similarly implemented feature and then enables JavaScript in mail messages. This is not the default setting and we strongly discourage users from running JavaScript in mail. Issues fixed in the 3.0.13 release were: MFSA 2009-44 / CVE-2009-2654: Security researcher Juan Pablo Lopez Yacubian reported that an attacker could call window.open() on an invalid URL which looks similar to a legitimate URL and then use document.write() to place content within the new document, appearing to have come from the spoofed location. Additionally, if the spoofed document was created by a document with a valid SSL certificate, the SSL indicators would be carried over into the spoofed document. An attacker could use these issues to display misleading location and SSL information for a malicious web page. MFSA 2009-45 / CVE-2009-2662:The browser engine in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.13, and 3.5.x before 3.5.2, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors related to the TraceRecorder::snapshot function in js/src/jstracer.cpp, and unspecified other vectors. CVE-2009-2663 / MFSA 2009-45: libvorbis before r16182, as used in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.13 and 3.5.x before 3.5.2 and other products, allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted .ogg file. CVE-2009-2664 / MFSA 2009-45: The js_watch_set function in js/src/jsdbgapi.cpp in the JavaScript engine in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.13, and 3.5.x before 3.5.2, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (assertion failure and application exit) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted .js file, related to a 'memory safety bug.

    description An updated thunderbird package that fixes several security issues is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. 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 with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2009-2462, CVE-2009-2463, CVE-2009-2466, CVE-2009-3072, CVE-2009-3075, CVE-2009-3380, CVE-2009-3979, CVE-2010-0159) A use-after-free flaw was found in Thunderbird. An attacker could use this flaw to crash Thunderbird or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2009-3077) A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the Thunderbird string to floating point conversion routines. An HTML mail message containing malicious JavaScript could crash Thunderbird or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2009-0689) A use-after-free flaw was found in Thunderbird. Under low memory conditions, viewing an HTML mail message containing malicious content could result in Thunderbird executing arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2009-1571) A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird created temporary file names for downloaded files. If a local attacker knows the name of a file Thunderbird is going to download, they can replace the contents of that file with arbitrary contents. (CVE-2009-3274) A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird displayed a right-to-left override character when downloading a file. In these cases, the name displayed in the title bar differed from the name displayed in the dialog body. An attacker could use this flaw to trick a user into downloading a file that has a file name or extension that is different from what the user expected. (CVE-2009-3376) A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird processed SOCKS5 proxy replies. A malicious SOCKS5 server could send a specially crafted reply that would cause Thunderbird to crash. (CVE-2009-2470) Descriptions in the dialogs when adding and removing PKCS #11 modules were not informative. An attacker able to trick a user into installing a malicious PKCS #11 module could use this flaw to install their own Certificate Authority certificates on a user's machine, making it possible to trick the user into believing they are viewing trusted content or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2009-3076) All Thunderbird users should upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these issues. All running instances of Thunderbird must be restarted for the update to take effect.

    description Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in mozilla-thunderbird : Mozilla Thunderbird before 2.0.0.24 and SeaMonkey before 1.1.19 process e-mail attachments with a parser that performs casts and line termination incorrectly, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted message, related to message indexing (CVE-2009-0689). Integer overflow in a base64 decoding function in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.12 and Thunderbird allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors (CVE-2009-2463). Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.14, and 3.5.x before 3.5.3, allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors (CVE-2009-3072). Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the JavaScript engine in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.14, and 3.5.x before 3.5.2, allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors (CVE-2009-3075). Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.14, and 3.5.x before 3.5.3, does not properly manage pointers for the columns (aka TreeColumns) of a XUL tree element, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted HTML document, related to a dangling pointer vulnerability. (CVE-2009-3077) Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.15 and 3.5.x before 3.5.4, and SeaMonkey before 2.0, does not properly handle a right-to-left override (aka RLO or U+202E) Unicode character in a download filename, which allows remote attackers to spoof file extensions via a crafted filename, as demonstrated by displaying a non-executable extension for an executable file (CVE-2009-3376). Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.16 and 3.5.x before 3.5.6, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.1, allows remote attackers to send authenticated requests to arbitrary applications by replaying the NTLM credentials of a browser user (CVE-2009-3983). Mozilla Thunderbird before 2.0.0.24 and SeaMonkey before 1.1.19 process e-mail attachments with a parser that performs casts and line termination incorrectly, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted message, related to message indexing (CVE-2010-0163). This update provides the latest version of Thunderbird which are not vulnerable to these issues. Packages for 2008.0 and 2009.0 are provided due to the Extended Maintenance Program for those products. Additionally, some packages which require so, have been rebuilt and are being provided as updates.

  • NASL family Debian Local Security Checks
    NASL id DEBIAN_DSA-1885.NASL
    description Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in Xulrunner, a runtime environment for XUL applications, such as the Iceweasel web browser. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CVE-2009-3070 Jesse Ruderman discovered crashes in the layout engine, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code. - CVE-2009-3071 Daniel Holbert, Jesse Ruderman, Olli Pettay and 'toshi' discovered crashes in the layout engine, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code. - CVE-2009-3072 Josh Soref, Jesse Ruderman and Martin Wargers discovered crashes in the layout engine, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code. - CVE-2009-3074 Jesse Ruderman discovered a crash in the JavaScript engine, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code. - CVE-2009-3075 Carsten Book and 'Taral' discovered crashes in the layout engine, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code. - CVE-2009-3076 Jesse Ruderman discovered that the user interface for installing/ removing PCKS #11 securiy modules wasn't informative enough, which might allow social engineering attacks. - CVE-2009-3077 It was discovered that incorrect pointer handling in the XUL parser could lead to the execution of arbitrary code. - CVE-2009-3078 Juan Pablo Lopez Yacubian discovered that incorrent rendering of some Unicode font characters could lead to spoofing attacks on the location bar.

    description This update brings the Mozilla XULRunner engine to the 1.9.0.14 stable release. It also fixes various security issues : - / CVE-2009-30 /. (MFSA 2009-47 / CVE-2009-3069 / CVE-2009-3070 / CVE-2009-3071 / CVE-2009-3072 / CVE-2009-3073) - Mozilla developers and community members 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. (CVE-2009-3075) - Mozilla security researcher Jesse Rudermanreported that when security modules were added or removed via pkcs11.addmodule or pkcs11.deletemodule, the resulting dialog was not sufficiently informative. Without sufficient warning, an attacker could entice a victim to install a malicious PKCS11 module and affect the cryptographic integrity of the victim's browser. Security researcher Dan Kaminsky reported that this issue had not been fixed in Firefox 3.0 and that under certain circumstances pkcs11 modules could be installed from a remote location. Firefox 3.5 releases are not affected. (MFSA 2009-48 / CVE-2009-3076) - An anonymous security researcher, via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative, reported that the columns of a XUL tree element could be manipulated in a particular way which would leave a pointer owned by the column pointing to freed memory. An attacker could potentially use this vulnerability to crash a victim's browser and run arbitrary code on the victim's computer. (MFSA 2009-49 / CVE-2009-3077) - Security researcher Juan Pablo Lopez Yacubian reported that the default Windows font used to render the locationbar and other text fields was improperly displaying certain Unicode characters with tall line-height. In such cases the tall line-height would cause the rest of the text in the input field to be scrolled vertically out of view. An attacker could use this vulnerability to prevent a user from seeing the URL of a malicious site. Corrie Sloot also independently reported this issue to Mozilla. (MFSA 2009-50 / CVE-2009-3078) - Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported that the BrowserFeedWriter could be leveraged to run JavaScript code from web content with elevated privileges. Using this vulnerability, an attacker could construct an object containing malicious JavaScript and cause the FeedWriter to process the object, running the malicious code with chrome privileges. Thunderbird does not support the BrowserFeedWriter object and is not vulnerable in its default configuration. Thunderbird might be vulnerable if the user has installed any add-on which adds a similarly implemented feature and then enables JavaScript in mail messages. This is not the default setting and we strongly discourage users from running JavaScript in mail. (MFSA 2009-51 / CVE-2009-3079)

If a user visited a malicious website, an attacker could exploit this to trick the user into installing a malicious PKCS11 module. (CVE-2009-3076) It was discovered that Firefox did not properly manage memory when using XUL tree elements. If a user were tricked into viewing a malicious website, a remote attacker could cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2009-3077) Juan Pablo Lopez Yacubian discovered that Firefox did properly display certain Unicode characters in the location bar and other text fields when using a certain non-Ubuntu font. If a user configured Firefox to use this font, an attacker could exploit this to spoof the location bar, such as in a phishing attack.

    description Updated SeaMonkey packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3. 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 with the privileges of the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2009-3072, CVE-2009-3075) A use-after-free flaw was found in SeaMonkey. An attacker could use this flaw to crash SeaMonkey or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2009-3077) Dan Kaminsky discovered flaws in the way browsers such as SeaMonkey handle NULL characters in a certificate. If an attacker is able to get a carefully-crafted certificate signed by a Certificate Authority trusted by SeaMonkey, the attacker could use the certificate during a man-in-the-middle attack and potentially confuse SeaMonkey into accepting it by mistake. (CVE-2009-2408) Descriptions in the dialogs when adding and removing PKCS #11 modules were not informative. An attacker able to trick a user into installing a malicious PKCS #11 module could use this flaw to install their own Certificate Authority certificates on a user's machine, making it possible to trick the user into believing they are viewing a trusted site or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2009-3076) A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey displays the address bar when window.open() is called in a certain way. An attacker could use this flaw to conceal a malicious URL, possibly tricking a user into believing they are viewing a trusted site. (CVE-2009-2654) Dan Kaminsky found that browsers still accept certificates with MD2 hash signatures, even though MD2 is no longer considered a cryptographically strong algorithm. This could make it easier for an attacker to create a malicious certificate that would be treated as trusted by a browser. NSS (provided by SeaMonkey) now disables the use of MD2 and MD4 algorithms inside signatures by default. (CVE-2009-2409) All SeaMonkey users should upgrade to these updated packages, which correct these issues. After installing the update, SeaMonkey must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

(CVE-2009-2654) Dan Kaminsky found that browsers still accept certificates with MD2 hash signatures, even though MD2 is no longer considered a cryptographically strong algorithm. This could make it easier for an attacker to create a malicious certificate that would be treated as trusted by a browser. NSS (provided by SeaMonkey) now disables the use of MD2 and MD4 algorithms inside signatures by default.

    description Security issues were identified and fixed in firefox 3.0.x : Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.14 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors (CVE-2009-3069, CVE-2009-3070, CVE-2009-3071, CVE-2009-3072). Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the JavaScript engine in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.14 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors (CVE-2009-3073, CVE-2009-3074, CVE-2009-3075). Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.14 does not properly implement certain dialogs associated with the (1) pkcs11.addmodule and (2) pkcs11.deletemodule operations, which makes it easier for remote attackers to trick a user into installing or removing an arbitrary PKCS11 module (CVE-2009-3076). Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.14 does not properly manage pointers for the columns (aka TreeColumns) of a XUL tree element, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted HTML document, related to a dangling pointer vulnerability. (CVE-2009-3077). Visual truncation vulnerability in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.14 allows remote attackers to trigger a vertical scroll and spoof URLs via unspecified Unicode characters with a tall line-height property (CVE-2009-3078). Unspecified vulnerability in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.14 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges via vectors involving an object, the FeedWriter, and the BrowserFeedWriter (CVE-2009-3079). This update provides the latest Mozilla Firefox 3.0.x to correct these issues. Additionally, some packages which require so, have been rebuilt and are being provided as updates.

    description The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 3.0.14. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues : - Multiple memory corruption vulnerabilities could potentially allow arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2009-47) - An insufficient warning message is displayed when adding or removing a PKCS11 module. In some cases, this can be done remotely. A remote attacker could exploit this by tricking a user into installing a malicious PKCS11 module, which could facilitate man-in-them-middle attacks. (MFSA 2009-48) - The columns of a XUL tree element can manipulated in a way that leads to a dangling pointer. A remote attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (MFSA 2009-49) - A URL containing certain Unicode characters with tall line-height is displayed incorrectly in the location bar. A remote attacker could use this to prevent a user from seeing the full URL of a malicious site. (MFSA 2009-50) - A remote attacker can leverage 'BrowserFeedWriter' to execute JavaScript code with Chrome privileges. (MFSA 2009-51)

    description This update brings the Mozilla Firefox 3.5 webbrowser to version 3.5.3, the Mozilla XULRunner 1.9.0 engine to the 1.9.0.14 stable release, and the Mozilla XULRunner 1.9.1 engine to the 1.9.1.3 stable release. It also fixes various security issues: MFSA 2009-47 / CVE-2009-3069 / CVE-2009-3070 / CVE-2009-3071 / CVE-2009-3072 / CVE-2009-3073 / CVE-2009-30 / CVE-2009-3075: Mozilla developers and community members 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. MFSA 2009-48 / CVE-2009-3076: Mozilla security researcher Jesse Rudermanreported that when security modules were added or removed via pkcs11.addmodule or pkcs11.deletemodule, the resulting dialog was not sufficiently informative. Without sufficient warning, an attacker could entice a victim to install a malicious PKCS11 module and affect the cryptographic integrity of the victim's browser. Security researcher Dan Kaminsky reported that this issue had not been fixed in Firefox 3.0 and that under certain circumstances pkcs11 modules could be installed from a remote location. Firefox 3.5 releases are not affected. MFSA 2009-49 / CVE-2009-3077: An anonymous security researcher, via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative, reported that the columns of a XUL tree element could be manipulated in a particular way which would leave a pointer owned by the column pointing to freed memory. An attacker could potentially use this vulnerability to crash a victim's browser and run arbitrary code on the victim's computer. MFSA 2009-50 / CVE-2009-3078: Security researcher Juan Pablo Lopez Yacubian reported that the default Windows font used to render the locationbar and other text fields was improperly displaying certain Unicode characters with tall line-height. In such cases the tall line-height would cause the rest of the text in the input field to be scrolled vertically out of view. An attacker could use this vulnerability to prevent a user from seeing the URL of a malicious site. Corrie Sloot also independently reported this issue to Mozilla. MFSA 2009-51 / CVE-2009-3079: Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported that the BrowserFeedWriter could be leveraged to run JavaScript code from web content with elevated privileges. Using this vulnerability, an attacker could construct an object containing malicious JavaScript and cause the FeedWriter to process the object, running the malicious code with chrome privileges. Thunderbird does not support the BrowserFeedWriter object and is not vulnerable in its default configuration. Thunderbird might be vulnerable if the user has installed any add-on which adds a similarly implemented feature and then enables JavaScript in mail messages. This is not the default setting and we strongly discourage users from running JavaScript in mail.
