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.

    description USN-853-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Firefox and Xulrunner. The upstream changes introduced regressions that could lead to crashes when processing certain malformed GIF images, fonts and web pages. This update fixes the problem. We apologize for the inconvenience. Alin Rad Pop discovered a heap-based buffer overflow in Firefox when it converted strings to floating point numbers. 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-2009-1563) Jeremy Brown discovered that the Firefox Download Manager was vulnerable to symlink attacks. A local attacker could exploit this to create or overwrite files with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2009-3274) Paul Stone discovered a flaw in the Firefox form history. If a user were tricked into viewing a malicious website, a remote attacker could access this data to steal confidential information. (CVE-2009-3370) Orlando Berrera discovered that Firefox did not properly free memory when using web-workers. 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. This issue only affected Ubuntu 9.10. (CVE-2009-3371) A flaw was discovered in the way Firefox processed Proxy Auto-configuration (PAC) files. If a user configured the browser to use PAC files with certain regular expressions, an attacker could cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2009-3372) A heap-based buffer overflow was discovered in Mozilla's GIF image parser. 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-2009-3373) A flaw was discovered in the JavaScript engine of Firefox. An attacker could exploit this to execute scripts from page content with chrome privileges. (CVE-2009-3374) Gregory Fleischer discovered that the same-origin check in Firefox could be bypassed by utilizing the document.getSelection function. An attacker could exploit this to read data from other domains. (CVE-2009-3375) Jesse Ruderman and Sid Stamm discovered that Firefox did not properly display filenames containing right-to-left (RTL) override characters. If a user were tricked into downloading a malicious file with a crafted filename, an attacker could exploit this to trick the user into opening a different file than the user expected. (CVE-2009-3376) Several flaws were discovered in third-party media libraries. If a user were tricked into opening a crafted media file, a remote attacker could cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. This issue only affected Ubuntu 9.10. (CVE-2009-3377) Vladimir Vukicevic, Jesse Ruderman, Martijn Wargers, Daniel Banchero, David Keeler, Boris Zbarsky, Thomas Frederiksen, Marcia Knous, Carsten Book, Kevin Brosnan, David Anderson and Jeff Walden discovered various flaws in the browser and JavaScript engines of Firefox. 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.

    description The Mozilla XULRunner engine was updated to version 1.9.0.15 to fix various bugs and security issues. The following security issues have been fixed : - Security researcher Paul Stone reported that a user's form history, both from web content as well as the smart location bar, was vulnerable to theft. A malicious web page could synthesize events such as mouse focus and key presses on behalf of the victim and trick the browser into auto-filling the form fields with history entries and then reading the entries. (MFSA 2009-52 / CVE-2009-3370) - Security researcher Jeremy Brown reported that the file naming scheme used for downloading a file which already exists in the downloads folder is predictable. If an attacker had local access to a victim's computer and knew the name of a file the victim intended to open through the Download Manager, he could use this vulnerability to place a malicious file in the world-writable directory used to save temporary downloaded files and cause the browser to choose the incorrect file when opening it. Since this attack requires local access to the victim's machine, the severity of this vulnerability was determined to be low. (MFSA 2009-53 / CVE-2009-3274) - Security researcher Orlando Berrera of Sec Theory reported that recursive creation of JavaScript web-workers can be used to create a set of objects whose memory could be freed prior to their use. These conditions often result in a crash which could potentially be used by an attacker to run arbitrary code on a victim's computer. (MFSA 2009-54 / CVE-2009-3371) - Security researcher Marco C. reported a flaw in the parsing of regular expressions used in Proxy Auto-configuration (PAC) files. In certain cases this flaw could be used by an attacker to crash a victim's browser and run arbitrary code on their computer. Since this vulnerability requires the victim to have PAC configured in their environment with specific regular expresssions which can trigger the crash, the severity of the issue was determined to be moderate. (MFSA 2009-55 / CVE-2009-3372) - Security research firm iDefense reported that researcher regenrecht discovered a heap-based buffer overflow in Mozilla's GIF image parser. This vulnerability could potentially be used by an attacker to crash a victim's browser and run arbitrary code on their computer. (MFSA 2009-56 / CVE-2009-3373) - Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported that the XPCOM utility XPCVariant::VariantDataToJS unwrapped doubly-wrapped objects before returning them to chrome callers. This could result in chrome privileged code calling methods on an object which had previously been created or modified by web content, potentially executing malicious JavaScript code with chrome privileges. (MFSA 2009-57 / CVE-2009-3374) - Security researcher Alin Rad Pop of Secunia Research reported a heap-based buffer overflow in Mozilla's string to floating point number conversion routines. Using this vulnerability an attacker could craft some malicious JavaScript code containing a very long string to be converted to a floating point number which would result in improper memory allocation and the execution of an arbitrary memory location. This vulnerability could thus be leveraged by the attacker to run arbitrary code on a victim's computer. (MFSA 2009-59 / CVE-2009-1563) - Security researcher Gregory Fleischer reported that text within a selection on a web page can be read by JavaScript in a different domain using the document.getSelection function, violating the same-origin policy. Since this vulnerability requires user interaction to exploit, its severity was determined to be moderate. (MFSA 2009-61 / CVE-2009-3375) - Mozilla security researchers Jesse Ruderman and Sid Stamm reported that when downloading a file containing a right-to-left override character (RTL) in the filename, the name displayed in the dialog title bar conflicts with the name of the file shown in the dialog body. An attacker could use this vulnerability to obfuscate the name and file extension of a file to be downloaded and opened, potentially causing a user to run an executable file when they expected to open a non-executable file. (MFSA 2009-62 / CVE-2009-3376) - 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.

    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2009-1531.NASL
    description Updated SeaMonkey packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 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. A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey creates temporary file names for downloaded files. If a local attacker knows the name of a file SeaMonkey is going to download, they can replace the contents of that file with arbitrary contents. (CVE-2009-3274) A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the SeaMonkey string to floating point conversion routines. A web page containing malicious JavaScript could crash SeaMonkey or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2009-1563) A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handles text selection. A malicious website may be able to read highlighted text in a different domain (e.g. another website the user is viewing), bypassing the same-origin policy. (CVE-2009-3375) A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey displays a right-to-left override character when downloading a file. In these cases, the name displayed in the title bar differs 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 differs from what the user expected. (CVE-2009-3376) 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-2009-3380) 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.

    title openSUSE Security Update : MozillaFirefox (MozillaFirefox-1499)
  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_11_MOZILLAFIREFOX-091030.NASL
    description The Mozilla Firefox browser was updated to version 3.5.4 to fix various bugs and security issues. The following security issues have been fixed : - Security researcher Paul Stone reported that a user's form history, both from web content as well as the smart location bar, was vulnerable to theft. A malicious web page could synthesize events such as mouse focus and key presses on behalf of the victim and trick the browser into auto-filling the form fields with history entries and then reading the entries. (MFSA 2009-52 / CVE-2009-3370) - Security researcher Jeremy Brown reported that the file naming scheme used for downloading a file which already exists in the downloads folder is predictable. If an attacker had local access to a victim's computer and knew the name of a file the victim intended to open through the Download Manager, he could use this vulnerability to place a malicious file in the world-writable directory used to save temporary downloaded files and cause the browser to choose the incorrect file when opening it. Since this attack requires local access to the victim's machine, the severity of this vulnerability was determined to be low. (MFSA 2009-53 / CVE-2009-3274) - Security researcher Orlando Berrera of Sec Theory reported that recursive creation of JavaScript web-workers can be used to create a set of objects whose memory could be freed prior to their use. These conditions often result in a crash which could potentially be used by an attacker to run arbitrary code on a victim's computer. (MFSA 2009-54 / CVE-2009-3371) - Security researcher Marco C. reported a flaw in the parsing of regular expressions used in Proxy Auto-configuration (PAC) files. In certain cases this flaw could be used by an attacker to crash a victim's browser and run arbitrary code on their computer. Since this vulnerability requires the victim to have PAC configured in their environment with specific regular expresssions which can trigger the crash, the severity of the issue was determined to be moderate. (MFSA 2009-55 / CVE-2009-3372) - Security research firm iDefense reported that researcher regenrecht discovered a heap-based buffer overflow in Mozilla's GIF image parser. This vulnerability could potentially be used by an attacker to crash a victim's browser and run arbitrary code on their computer. (MFSA 2009-56 / CVE-2009-3373) - Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported that the XPCOM utility XPCVariant::VariantDataToJS unwrapped doubly-wrapped objects before returning them to chrome callers. This could result in chrome privileged code calling methods on an object which had previously been created or modified by web content, potentially executing malicious JavaScript code with chrome privileges. (MFSA 2009-57 / CVE-2009-3374) - Security researcher Alin Rad Pop of Secunia Research reported a heap-based buffer overflow in Mozilla's string to floating point number conversion routines. Using this vulnerability an attacker could craft some malicious JavaScript code containing a very long string to be converted to a floating point number which would result in improper memory allocation and the execution of an arbitrary memory location. This vulnerability could thus be leveraged by the attacker to run arbitrary code on a victim's computer. (MFSA 2009-59 / CVE-2009-1563) - Security researcher Gregory Fleischer reported that text within a selection on a web page can be read by JavaScript in a different domain using the document.getSelection function, violating the same-origin policy. Since this vulnerability requires user interaction to exploit, its severity was determined to be moderate. (MFSA 2009-61 / CVE-2009-3375) - Mozilla security researchers Jesse Ruderman and Sid Stamm reported that when downloading a file containing a right-to-left override character (RTL) in the filename, the name displayed in the dialog title bar conflicts with the name of the file shown in the dialog body. An attacker could use this vulnerability to obfuscate the name and file extension of a file to be downloaded and opened, potentially causing a user to run an executable file when they expected to open a non-executable file. (MFSA 2009-62 / CVE-2009-3376) - Mozilla upgraded several thirdparty libraries used in media rendering to address multiple memory safety and stability bugs identified by members of the Mozilla community. Some of the bugs discovered could potentially be used by an attacker to crash a victim's browser and execute arbitrary code on their computer. liboggz, libvorbis, and liboggplay were all upgraded to address these issues. Audio and video capabilities were added in Firefox 3.5 so prior releases of Firefox were not affected. Georgi Guninski reported a crash in liboggz. (CVE-2009-3377), Lucas Adamski, Matthew Gregan, David Keeler, and Dan Kaminsky reported crashes in libvorbis. (CVE-2009-3379), Juan Becerra reported a crash in liboggplay. (CVE-2009-3378). (MFSA 2009-63 / CVE-2009-3377 / CVE-2009-3379 / CVE-2009-3378) - Mozilla developers and community members identified and fixed several stability bugs in the browser engine used in Firefox and other Mozilla-based products.

    title SuSE 11 Security Update : Mozilla Firefox (SAT Patch Number 1488)
  • NASL family Oracle Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL id ORACLELINUX_ELSA-2009-1530.NASL
    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2009:1530 : 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. nspr provides the Netscape Portable Runtime (NSPR). A flaw was found in the way Firefox handles form history. A malicious web page could steal saved form data by synthesizing input events, causing the browser to auto-fill form fields (which could then be read by an attacker). (CVE-2009-3370) A flaw was found in the way Firefox creates temporary file names for downloaded files. If a local attacker knows the name of a file Firefox is going to download, they can replace the contents of that file with arbitrary contents. (CVE-2009-3274) A flaw was found in the Firefox Proxy Auto-Configuration (PAC) file processor. If Firefox loads a malicious PAC file, it could crash Firefox or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2009-3372) A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the Firefox GIF image processor. A malicious GIF image could crash Firefox or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2009-3373) A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the Firefox string to floating point conversion routines. A web page containing malicious JavaScript could crash Firefox or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2009-1563) A flaw was found in the way Firefox handles text selection. A malicious website may be able to read highlighted text in a different domain (e.g. another website the user is viewing), bypassing the same-origin policy. (CVE-2009-3375) A flaw was found in the way Firefox displays a right-to-left override character when downloading a file. In these cases, the name displayed in the title bar differs 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 differs from what the user expected. (CVE-2009-3376) 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 with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2009-3374, CVE-2009-3380, CVE-2009-3382) For technical details regarding these flaws, refer to the Mozilla security advisories for Firefox 3.0.15. 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 3.0.15, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

    description Security issues were identified and fixed in firefox 3.5.x : Security researcher Alin Rad Pop of Secunia Research reported a heap-based buffer overflow in Mozilla's string to floating point number conversion routines. Using this vulnerability an attacker could craft some malicious JavaScript code containing a very long string to be converted to a floating point number which would result in improper memory allocation and the execution of an arbitrary memory location. This vulnerability could thus be leveraged by the attacker to run arbitrary code on a victim's computer (CVE-2009-1563). Security researcher Jeremy Brown reported that the file naming scheme used for downloading a file which already exists in the downloads folder is predictable. If an attacker had local access to a victim's computer and knew the name of a file the victim intended to open through the Download Manager, he could use this vulnerability to place a malicious file in the world-writable directory used to save temporary downloaded files and cause the browser to choose the incorrect file when opening it. Since this attack requires local access to the victim's machine, the severity of this vulnerability was determined to be low (CVE-2009-3274). Security researcher Paul Stone reported that a user's form history, both from web content as well as the smart location bar, was vulnerable to theft. A malicious web page could synthesize events such as mouse focus and key presses on behalf of the victim and trick the browser into auto-filling the form fields with history entries and then reading the entries (CVE-2009-3370). Security researcher Orlando Berrera of Sec Theory reported that recursive creation of JavaScript web-workers can be used to create a set of objects whose memory could be freed prior to their use. These conditions often result in a crash which could potentially be used by an attacker to run arbitrary code on a victim's computer (CVE-2009-3371). Security researcher Marco C. reported a flaw in the parsing of regular expressions used in Proxy Auto-configuration (PAC) files. In certain cases this flaw could be used by an attacker to crash a victim's browser and run arbitrary code on their computer. Since this vulnerability requires the victim to have PAC configured in their environment with specific regular expresssions which can trigger the crash, the severity of the issue was determined to be moderate (CVE-2009-3372). Security research firm iDefense reported that researcher regenrecht discovered a heap-based buffer overflow in Mozilla's GIF image parser. This vulnerability could potentially be used by an attacker to crash a victim's browser and run arbitrary code on their computer (CVE-2009-3373). Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported that the XPCOM utility XPCVariant::VariantDataToJS unwrapped doubly-wrapped objects before returning them to chrome callers. This could result in chrome privileged code calling methods on an object which had previously been created or modified by web content, potentially executing malicious JavaScript code with chrome privileges (CVE-2009-3374). Security researcher Gregory Fleischer reported that text within a selection on a web page can be read by JavaScript in a different domain using the document.getSelection function, violating the same-origin policy. Since this vulnerability requires user interaction to exploit, its severity was determined to be moderate (CVE-2009-3375). Mozilla security researchers Jesse Ruderman and Sid Stamm reported that when downloading a file containing a right-to-left override character (RTL) in the filename, the name displayed in the dialog title bar conflicts with the name of the file shown in the dialog body. An attacker could use this vulnerability to obfuscate the name and file extension of a file to be downloaded and opened, potentially causing a user to run an executable file when they expected to open a non-executable file (CVE-2009-3376). Mozilla upgraded several third-party libraries used in media rendering to address multiple memory safety and stability bugs identified by members of the Mozilla community. Some of the bugs discovered could potentially be used by an attacker to crash a victim's browser and execute arbitrary code on their computer. liboggz, libvorbis, and liboggplay were all upgraded to address these issues (CVE-2009-3377, CVE-2009-3379, CVE-2009-3378). 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-2009-3380). Additionally, some packages which require so, have been rebuilt and are being provided as updates.

Since this vulnerability requires user interaction to exploit, its severity was determined to be moderate. MFSA 2009-62 / CVE-2009-3376: Mozilla security researchers Jesse Ruderman and Sid Stamm reported that when downloading a file containing a right-to-left override character (RTL) in the filename, the name displayed in the dialog title bar conflicts with the name of the file shown in the dialog body. An attacker could use this vulnerability to obfuscate the name and file extension of a file to be downloaded and opened, potentially causing a user to run an executable file when they expected to open a non-executable file. MFSA 2009-64 / CVE-2009-3380 / CVE-2009-3381 / CVE-2009-3382 / CVE-2009-3383: 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.

    description The Mozilla XULRunner engine was updated to version 1.9.0.15 to fix various bugs and security issues. The following security issues have been fixed : - Security researcher Paul Stone reported that a user's form history, both from web content as well as the smart location bar, was vulnerable to theft. A malicious web page could synthesize events such as mouse focus and key presses on behalf of the victim and trick the browser into auto-filling the form fields with history entries and then reading the entries. (MFSA 2009-52 / CVE-2009-3370) - Security researcher Jeremy Brown reported that the file naming scheme used for downloading a file which already exists in the downloads folder is predictable. If an attacker had local access to a victim's computer and knew the name of a file the victim intended to open through the Download Manager, he could use this vulnerability to place a malicious file in the world-writable directory used to save temporary downloaded files and cause the browser to choose the incorrect file when opening it. Since this attack requires local access to the victim's machine, the severity of this vulnerability was determined to be low. (MFSA 2009-53 / CVE-2009-3274) - Security researcher Orlando Berrera of Sec Theory reported that recursive creation of JavaScript web-workers can be used to create a set of objects whose memory could be freed prior to their use. These conditions often result in a crash which could potentially be used by an attacker to run arbitrary code on a victim's computer. (MFSA 2009-54 / CVE-2009-3371) - Security researcher Marco C. reported a flaw in the parsing of regular expressions used in Proxy Auto-configuration (PAC) files. In certain cases this flaw could be used by an attacker to crash a victim's browser and run arbitrary code on their computer. Since this vulnerability requires the victim to have PAC configured in their environment with specific regular expresssions which can trigger the crash, the severity of the issue was determined to be moderate. (MFSA 2009-55 / CVE-2009-3372) - Security research firm iDefense reported that researcher regenrecht discovered a heap-based buffer overflow in Mozilla's GIF image parser. This vulnerability could potentially be used by an attacker to crash a victim's browser and run arbitrary code on their computer. (MFSA 2009-56 / CVE-2009-3373) - Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported that the XPCOM utility XPCVariant::VariantDataToJS unwrapped doubly-wrapped objects before returning them to chrome callers. This could result in chrome privileged code calling methods on an object which had previously been created or modified by web content, potentially executing malicious JavaScript code with chrome privileges. (MFSA 2009-57 / CVE-2009-3374) - Security researcher Alin Rad Pop of Secunia Research reported a heap-based buffer overflow in Mozilla's string to floating point number conversion routines. Using this vulnerability an attacker could craft some malicious JavaScript code containing a very long string to be converted to a floating point number which would result in improper memory allocation and the execution of an arbitrary memory location. This vulnerability could thus be leveraged by the attacker to run arbitrary code on a victim's computer. (MFSA 2009-59 / CVE-2009-1563) - Security researcher Gregory Fleischer reported that text within a selection on a web page can be read by JavaScript in a different domain using the document.getSelection function, violating the same-origin policy. Since this vulnerability requires user interaction to exploit, its severity was determined to be moderate. (MFSA 2009-61 / CVE-2009-3375) - Mozilla security researchers Jesse Ruderman and Sid Stamm reported that when downloading a file containing a right-to-left override character (RTL) in the filename, the name displayed in the dialog title bar conflicts with the name of the file shown in the dialog body.

    title SuSE 10 Security Update : Mozilla XULRunner (ZYPP Patch Number 6616)
  • NASL family CentOS Local Security Checks
    NASL id CENTOS_RHSA-2009-1531.NASL
    description Updated SeaMonkey packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 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. A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey creates temporary file names for downloaded files. If a local attacker knows the name of a file SeaMonkey is going to download, they can replace the contents of that file with arbitrary contents. (CVE-2009-3274) A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the SeaMonkey string to floating point conversion routines. A web page containing malicious JavaScript could crash SeaMonkey or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2009-1563) A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handles text selection. A malicious website may be able to read highlighted text in a different domain (e.g. another website the user is viewing), bypassing the same-origin policy. (CVE-2009-3375) A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey displays a right-to-left override character when downloading a file. In these cases, the name displayed in the title bar differs 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 differs from what the user expected. (CVE-2009-3376) 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-2009-3380) 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.
