ID CVE-2009-3988
Summary Mozilla Firefox 3.0.x before 3.0.18 and 3.5.x before 3.5.8, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.3, does not properly restrict read access to object properties in showModalDialog, which allows remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy and conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via crafted dialogArguments values.

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 Mozilla Firefox was upgraded to version 3.5.8, fixing various bugs and security issues. The following security issues have been fixed : - Mozilla developers identified and fixed several stability bugs in the browser engine used in Firefox and other Mozilla-based products. Some of these crashes showed evidence of memory corruption under certain circumstances and we presume that with enough effort at least some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code. (MFSA 2010-01 / CVE-2010-0159) - Security researcher Orlando Barrera II reported via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative that Mozilla's implementation of Web Workers contained an error in its handling of array data types when processing posted messages. This error could be used by an attacker to corrupt heap memory and crash the browser, potentially running arbitrary code on a victim's computer. (MFSA 2010-02 / CVE-2010-0160) - Security researcher Alin Rad Pop of Secunia Research reported that the HTML parser incorrectly freed used memory when insufficient space was available to process remaining input. Under such circumstances, memory occupied by in-use objects was freed and could later be filled with attacker-controlled text. These conditions could result in the execution or arbitrary code if methods on the freed objects were subsequently called. (MFSA 2010-03 / CVE-2009-1571) - Security researcher Hidetake Jo of Microsoft Vulnerability Research reported that the properties set on an object passed to showModalDialog were readable by the document contained in the dialog, even when the document was from a different domain. This is a violation of the same-origin policy and could result in a website running untrusted JavaScript if it assumed the dialogArguments could not be initialized by another site. (MFSA 2010-04 / CVE-2009-3988) An anonymous security researcher, via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative, also independently reported this issue to Mozilla. - Mozilla security researcher Georgi Guninski reported that when a SVG document which is served with Content-Type: application/octet-stream is embedded into another document via an embed tag with type='image/svg+xml', the Content-Type is ignored and the SVG document is processed normally. A website which allows arbitrary binary data to be uploaded but which relies on Content-Type: application/octet-stream to prevent script execution could have such protection bypassed. An attacker could upload a SVG document containing JavaScript as a binary file to a website, embed the SVG document into a malicous page on another site, and gain access to the script environment from the SVG-serving site, bypassing the same-origin policy.

(MFSA 2010-02 / CVE-2010-0160) - Security researcher Alin Rad Pop of Secunia Research reported that the HTML parser incorrectly freed used memory when insufficient space was available to process remaining input. Under such circumstances, memory occupied by in-use objects was freed and could later be filled with attacker-controlled text. These conditions could result in the execution or arbitrary code if methods on the freed objects were subsequently called. (MFSA 2010-03 / CVE-2009-1571) - Security researcher Hidetake Jo of Microsoft Vulnerability Research reported that the properties set on an object passed to showModalDialog were readable by the document contained in the dialog, even when the document was from a different domain. This is a violation of the same-origin policy and could result in a website running untrusted JavaScript if it assumed the dialogArguments could not be initialized by another site. (MFSA 2010-04 / CVE-2009-3988) An anonymous security researcher, via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative, also independently reported this issue to Mozilla. - Mozilla security researcher Georgi Guninski reported that when a SVG document which is served with Content-Type: application/octet-stream is embedded into another document via an tag with type='image/svg+xml', the Content-Type is ignored and the SVG document is processed normally. A website which allows arbitrary binary data to be uploaded but which relies on Content-Type: application/octet-stream to prevent script execution could have such protection bypassed. An attacker could upload a SVG document containing JavaScript as a binary file to a website, embed the SVG document into a malicous page on another site, and gain access to the script environment from the SVG-serving site, bypassing the same-origin policy.

Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details. Impact : A remote attacker could entice a user to view a specially crafted web page or email, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code or a Denial of Service condition. Furthermore, a remote attacker may be able to perform Man-in-the-Middle attacks, obtain sensitive information, bypass restrictions and protection mechanisms, force file downloads, conduct XML injection attacks, conduct XSS attacks, bypass the Same Origin Policy, spoof URL’s for phishing attacks, trigger a vertical scroll, spoof the location bar, spoof an SSL indicator, modify the browser’s font, conduct clickjacking attacks, or have other unspecified impact. A local attacker could gain escalated privileges, obtain sensitive information, or replace an arbitrary downloaded file. Workaround : There is no known workaround at this time.

    description Mozilla Firefox was upgraded to version 3.0.18, fixing various bugs and security issues. Following security issues have been fixed: MFSA 2010-01 / CVE-2010-0159: Mozilla developers identified and fixed several stability bugs in the browser engine used in Firefox and other Mozilla-based products. Some of these crashes showed evidence of memory corruption under certain circumstances and we presume that with enough effort at least some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code. MFSA 2010-02 / CVE-2010-0160: Security researcher Orlando Barrera II reported via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative that Mozilla's implementation of Web Workers contained an error in its handling of array data types when processing posted messages. This error could be used by an attacker to corrupt heap memory and crash the browser, potentially running arbitrary code on a victim's computer. MFSA 2010-03 / CVE-2009-1571: Security researcher Alin Rad Pop of Secunia Research reported that the HTML parser incorrectly freed used memory when insufficient space was available to process remaining input. Under such circumstances, memory occupied by in-use objects was freed and could later be filled with attacker-controlled text. These conditions could result in the execution or arbitrary code if methods on the freed objects were subsequently called. MFSA 2010-04 / CVE-2009-3988: Security researcher Hidetake Jo of Microsoft Vulnerability Research reported that the properties set on an object passed to showModalDialog were readable by the document contained in the dialog, even when the document was from a different domain. This is a violation of the same-origin policy and could result in a website running untrusted JavaScript if it assumed the dialogArguments could not be initialized by another site. An anonymous security researcher, via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative, also independently reported this issue to Mozilla. MFSA 2010-05 / CVE-2010-0162: Mozilla security researcher Georgi Guninski reported that when a SVG document which is served with Content-Type: application/octet-stream is embedded into another document via an tag with type='image/svg+xml', the Content-Type is ignored and the SVG document is processed normally. A website which allows arbitrary binary data to be uploaded but which relies on Content-Type: application/octet-stream to prevent script execution could have such protection bypassed. An attacker could upload a SVG document containing JavaScript as a binary file to a website, embed the SVG document into a malicous page on another site, and gain access to the script environment from the SVG-serving site, bypassing the same-origin policy.

    description Mozilla Firefox was upgraded to version 3.5.8, fixing various bugs and security issues. The following security issues have been fixed : - Mozilla developers identified and fixed several stability bugs in the browser engine used in Firefox and other Mozilla-based products. Some of these crashes showed evidence of memory corruption under certain circumstances and we presume that with enough effort at least some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code.

    description Several flaws were discovered in the browser engine 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-2010-0159) Orlando Barrera II discovered a flaw in the Web Workers implementation of Firefox. If a user were tricked into posting to a malicious website, an attacker could cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2010-0160) Alin Rad Pop discovered that Firefox's HTML parser would incorrectly free memory under certain circumstances. If the browser could be made to access these freed memory objects, an attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2009-1571) Hidetake Jo discovered that the showModalDialog in Firefox did not always honor the same-origin policy. An attacker could exploit this to run untrusted JavaScript from other domains. (CVE-2009-3988) Georgi Guninski discovered that the same-origin check in Firefox could be bypassed by utilizing a crafted SVG image. If a user were tricked into viewing a malicious website, an attacker could exploit this to read data from other domains. (CVE-2010-0162). 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.
