    description The installed version of Firefox 3.5 is earlier than 3.5.4. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues : - It may be possible for a malicious web page to steal form history. (MFSA 2009-52) - By predicting the filename of an already downloaded file in the downloads directory, a local attacker may be able to trick the browser into opening an incorrect file. (MFSA 2009-53) - Recursive creation of JavaScript web-workers could crash the browser or allow execution of arbitrary code on the remote system. (MFSA 2009-54) - Provided the browser is configured to use Proxy Auto-configuration it may be possible for an attacker to crash the browser or execute arbitrary code. (MFSA 2009-55) - Mozilla's GIF image parser is affected by a heap-based buffer overflow. (MFSA 2009-56) - A vulnerability in XPCOM utility 'XPCVariant::VariantDataToJS' could allow executing arbitrary JavaScript code with chrome privileges. (MFSA 2009-57) - A vulnerability in Mozilla's string to floating point number conversion routine could allow arbitrary code execution on the remote system. (MFSA 2009-59) - It may be possible to read text from a web page using JavaScript function 'document.getSelection() from a different domain. (MFSA 2009-61) - If a file contains right-to-left override character (RTL) in the filename it may be possible for an attacker to obfuscate the filename and extension of the file being downloaded. (MFSA 2009-62) - Multiple memory safety bugs in media libraries could potentially allow arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2009-63) - Multiple memory corruption vulnerabilities could potentially allow arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2009-64)

    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. (CVE-2009-3380, CVE-2009-3381, CVE-2009-3382, CVE-2009-3383). Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    NASL id SUSE_11_MOZILLA-XULRUNNER190-091030.NASL
    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 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.

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. 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 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.

    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.

MFSA 2009-61 / CVE-2009-3375: 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 2009-62 / 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.

    title openSUSE Security Update : MozillaFirefox (MozillaFirefox-1499)
  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_MOZILLA-XULRUNNER190-6616.NASL
    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.
