Impact:
Exploitability:
CWE CWE-79
CAPEC
  • Cross Site Scripting through Log Files
    An attacker may leverage a system weakness where logs are susceptible to log injection to insert scripts into the system's logs. If these logs are later viewed by an administrator through a thin administrative interface and the log data is not properly HTML encoded before being written to the page, the attackers' scripts stored in the log will be executed in the administrative interface with potentially serious consequences. This attack pattern is really a combination of two other attack patterns: log injection and stored cross site scripting.
  • Embedding Scripts in Non-Script Elements
    This attack is a form of Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) where malicious scripts are embedded in elements that are not expected to host scripts such as image tags (<img>), comments in XML documents (< !-CDATA->), etc. These tags may not be subject to the same input validation, output validation, and other content filtering and checking routines, so this can create an opportunity for an attacker to tunnel through the application's elements and launch a XSS attack through other elements. As with all remote attacks, it is important to differentiate the ability to launch an attack (such as probing an internal network for unpatched servers) and the ability of the remote attacker to collect and interpret the output of said attack.
  • Embedding Scripts within Scripts
    An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities that are brought on by allowing remote hosts to execute scripts. The attacker leverages this capability to execute scripts to execute his/her own script by embedding it within other scripts that the target software is likely to execute. The attacker must have the ability to inject script into script that is likely to be executed. If this is done, then the attacker can potentially launch a variety of probes and attacks against the web server's local environment, in many cases the so-called DMZ, back end resources the web server can communicate with, and other hosts. With the proliferation of intermediaries, such as Web App Firewalls, network devices, and even printers having JVMs and Web servers, there are many locales where an attacker can inject malicious scripts. Since this attack pattern defines scripts within scripts, there are likely privileges to execute said attack on the host. Of course, these attacks are not solely limited to the server side, client side scripts like Ajax and client side JavaScript can contain malicious scripts as well. In general all that is required is for there to be sufficient privileges to execute a script, but not protected against writing.
  • Cross-Site Scripting in Error Pages
    An attacker distributes a link (or possibly some other query structure) with a request to a third party web server that is malformed and also contains a block of exploit code in order to have the exploit become live code in the resulting error page. When the third party web server receives the crafted request and notes the error it then creates an error message that echoes the malformed message, including the exploit. Doing this converts the exploit portion of the message into to valid language elements that are executed by the viewing browser. When a victim executes the query provided by the attacker the infected error message error message is returned including the exploit code which then runs in the victim's browser. XSS can result in execution of code as well as data leakage (e.g. session cookies can be sent to the attacker). This type of attack is especially dangerous since the exploit appears to come from the third party web server, who the victim may trust and hence be more vulnerable to deception.
  • Cross-Site Scripting Using Alternate Syntax
    The attacker uses alternate forms of keywords or commands that result in the same action as the primary form but which may not be caught by filters. For example, many keywords are processed in a case insensitive manner. If the site's web filtering algorithm does not convert all tags into a consistent case before the comparison with forbidden keywords it is possible to bypass filters (e.g., incomplete black lists) by using an alternate case structure. For example, the "script" tag using the alternate forms of "Script" or "ScRiPt" may bypass filters where "script" is the only form tested. Other variants using different syntax representations are also possible as well as using pollution meta-characters or entities that are eventually ignored by the rendering engine. The attack can result in the execution of otherwise prohibited functionality.
  • Cross-Site Scripting Using MIME Type Mismatch
    An attacker creates a file with scripting content but where the specified MIME type of the file is such that scripting is not expected. Some browsers will detect that the specified MIME type of the file does not match the actual type of the content and will automatically switch to using an interpreter for the real content type. If the browser does not invoke script filters before doing this, the attackers' script may run on the target unsanitized. For example, the MIME type text/plain may be used where the actual content is text/javascript or text/html. Since text does not contain scripting instructions, the stated MIME type would indicate that filtering is unnecessary. However, if the target application subsequently determines the file's real type and invokes the appropriate interpreter, scripted content could be invoked. In another example, img tags in HTML content could reference a renderable type file instead of an expected image file. The file extension and MIME type can describe an image file, but the file content can be text/javascript or text/html resulting in script execution. If the browser assumes all references in img tags are images, and therefore do not need to be filtered for scripts, this would bypass content filters. In a cross-site scripting attack, the attacker tricks the victim into accessing a URL that uploads a script file with an incorrectly specified MIME type. If the victim's browser switches to the appropriate interpreter without filtering, the attack will execute as a standard XSS attack, possibly revealing the victim's cookies or executing arbitrary script in their browser.
  • Cross-Site Scripting in Attributes
    The attacker inserts commands to perform cross-site scripting (XSS) actions in HTML attributes. Many filters do not adequately sanitize attributes against the presence of potentially dangerous commands even if they adequately sanitize tags. For example, dangerous expressions could be inserted into a style attribute in an anchor tag, resulting in the execution of malicious code when the resulting page is rendered. If a victim is tricked into viewing the rendered page the attack proceeds like a normal XSS attack, possibly resulting in the loss of sensitive cookies or other malicious activities.
  • Cross-Site Scripting via Encoded URI Schemes
    An attack of this type exploits the ability of most browsers to interpret "data", "javascript" or other URI schemes as client-side executable content placeholders. This attack consists of passing a malicious URI in an anchor tag HREF attribute or any other similar attributes in other HTML tags. Such malicious URI contains, for example, a base64 encoded HTML content with an embedded cross-site scripting payload. The attack is executed when the browser interprets the malicious content i.e., for example, when the victim clicks on the malicious link.
  • Cross-Site Scripting Using Doubled Characters, e.g. %3C%3Cscript
    The attacker bypasses input validation by using doubled characters in order to perform a cross-site scripting attack. Some filters fail to recognize dangerous sequences if they are preceded by repeated characters. For example, by doubling the < before a script command, (<<script or %3C%3script using URI encoding) the filters of some web applications may fail to recognize the presence of a script tag. If the targeted server is vulnerable to this type of bypass, the attacker can create a crafted URL or other trap to cause a victim to view a page on the targeted server where the malicious content is executed, as per a normal XSS attack.
  • Cross-Site Scripting Using Flash
    An attacker injects malicious script to global parameters in a Flash movie via a crafted URL. The malicious script is executed in the context of the Flash movie. As such, this is a form of Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), but the abilities granted to the Flash movie make this attack more flexible.
  • Cross-Site Scripting with Masking through Invalid Characters in Identifiers
    The attacker inserts invalid characters in identifiers to bypass application filtering of input. Filters may not scan beyond invalid characters but during later stages of processing content that follows these invalid characters may still be processed. This allows the attacker to sneak prohibited commands past filters and perform normally prohibited operations. Invalid characters may include null, carriage return, line feed or tab in an identifier. Successful bypassing of the filter can result in a XSS attack, resulting in the disclosure of web cookies or possibly other results.
  • Embedding Scripts in HTTP Query Strings
    A variant of cross-site scripting called "reflected" cross-site scripting, the HTTP Query Strings attack consists of passing a malicious script inside an otherwise valid HTTP request query string. This is of significant concern for sites that rely on dynamic, user-generated content such as bulletin boards, news sites, blogs, and web enabled administration GUIs. The malicious script may steal session data, browse history, probe files, or otherwise execute attacks on the client side. Once the attacker has prepared the malicious HTTP query it is sent to a victim user (perhaps by email, IM, or posted on an online forum), who clicks on a normal looking link that contains a poison query string. This technique can be made more effective through the use of services like http://tinyurl.com/, which makes very small URLs that will redirect to very large, complex ones. The victim will not know what he is really clicking on.
  • Simple Script Injection
    An attacker embeds malicious scripts in content that will be served to web browsers. The goal of the attack is for the target software, the client-side browser, to execute the script with the users' privilege level. An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities that are brought on by allowing remote hosts to execute code and scripts. Web browsers, for example, have some simple security controls in place, but if a remote attacker is allowed to execute scripts (through injecting them in to user-generated content like bulletin boards) then these controls may be bypassed. Further, these attacks are very difficult for an end user to detect.
  • AJAX Fingerprinting
    This attack utilizes the frequent client-server roundtrips in Ajax conversation to scan a system. While Ajax does not open up new vulnerabilities per se, it does optimize them from an attacker point of view. In many XSS attacks the attacker must get a "hole in one" and successfully exploit the vulnerability on the victim side the first time, once the client is redirected the attacker has many chances to engage in follow on probes, but there is only one first chance. In a widely used web application this is not a major problem because 1 in a 1,000 is good enough in a widely used application. A common first step for an attacker is to footprint the environment to understand what attacks will work. Since footprinting relies on enumeration, the conversational pattern of rapid, multiple requests and responses that are typical in Ajax applications enable an attacker to look for many vulnerabilities, well-known ports, network locations and so on.
  • Embedding Script (XSS) in HTTP Headers
    An attack of this type exploits web applications that generate web content, such as links in a HTML page, based on unvalidated or improperly validated data submitted by other actors. XSS in HTTP Headers attacks target the HTTP headers which are hidden from most users and may not be validated by web applications.
  • XSS in IMG Tags
    Image tags are an often overlooked, but convenient, means for a Cross Site Scripting attack. The attacker can inject script contents into an image (IMG) tag in order to steal information from a victim's browser and execute malicious scripts.

    description Mozilla SeaMonkey 2.0 was updated to update 2.0.11 fixing several security issues. MFSA 2010-74: Mozilla developers identified and fixed several memory safety bugs in the browser engine used in Firefox and other Mozilla-based products. Some of these bugs 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. Jesee Ruderman, Andreas Gal, Nils, and Brian Hackett reported memory safety problems that affected Firefox 3.6 and Firefox 3.5. (CVE-2010-3776) Igor Bukanov reported a memory safety problem that was fixed in Firefox 3.6 only. (CVE-2010-3777) Jesse Ruderman reported a crash which affected Firefox 3.5 only. (CVE-2010-3778) MFSA 2010-75 / CVE-2010-3769: Dirk Heinrich reported that on Windows platforms when document.write() was called with a very long string a buffer overflow was caused in line breaking routines attempting to process the string for display. Such cases triggered an invalid read past the end of an array causing a crash which an attacker could potentially use to run arbitrary code on a victim's computer. MFSA 2010-76 / CVE-2010-3771: Security researcher echo reported that a web page could open a window with an about:blank location and then inject an element into that page which upon submission would redirect to a chrome: document. The effect of this defect was that the original page would wind up with a reference to a chrome-privileged object, the opened window, which could be leveraged for privilege escalation attacks. Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 provided proof-of-concept code demonstrating how the above vulnerability could be used to run arbitrary code with chrome privileges. MFSA 2010-77 / CVE-2010-3772: Security researcher wushi of team509 reported that when a XUL tree had an HTML
    element nested inside a element then code attempting to display content in the XUL tree would incorrectly treat the
    element as a parent node to tree content underneath it resulting in incorrect indexes being calculated for the child content. These incorrect indexes were used in subsequent array operations which resulted in writing data past the end of an allocated buffer. An attacker could use this issue to crash a victim's browser and run arbitrary code on their machine. MFSA 2010-78 / CVE-2010-3768: Mozilla added the OTS font sanitizing library to prevent downloadable fonts from exposing vulnerabilities in the underlying OS font code. This library mitigates against several issues independently reported by Red Hat Security Response Team member Marc Schoenefeld and Mozilla security researcher Christoph Diehl. MFSA 2010-79 / CVE-2010-3775: Security researcher Gregory Fleischer reported that when a Java LiveConnect script was loaded via a data: URL which redirects via a meta refresh, then the resulting plugin object was created with the wrong security principal and thus received elevated privileges such as the abilities to read local files, launch processes, and create network connections. MFSA 2010-80 / CVE-2010-3766: Security researcher regenrecht reported via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative that a nsDOMAttribute node can be modified without informing the iterator object responsible for various DOM traversals. This flaw could lead to a inconsistent state where the iterator points to an object it believes is part of the DOM but actually points to some other object. If such an object had been deleted and its memory reclaimed by the system, then the iterator could be used to call into attacker-controlled memory. MFSA 2010-81 / CVE-2010-3767: Security researcher regenrecht reported via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative that JavaScript arrays were vulnerable to an integer overflow vulnerability. The report demonstrated that an array could be constructed containing a very large number of items such that when memory was allocated to store the array items, the integer value used to calculate the buffer size would overflow resulting in too small a buffer being allocated. Subsequent use of the array object could then result in data being written past the end of the buffer and causing memory corruption. MFSA 2010-82 / CVE-2010-3773: Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported that the fix for CVE-2010-0179 could be circumvented permitting the execution of arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges. MFSA 2010-83 / CVE-2010-3774: Google security researcher Michal Zalewski reported that when a window was opened to a site resulting in a network or certificate error page, the opening site could access the document inside the opened window and inject arbitrary content. An attacker could use this bug to spoof the location bar and trick a user into thinking they were on a different site than they actually were. MFSA 2010-84 / CVE-2010-3770: Security researchers Yosuke Hasegawa and Masatoshi Kimura reported that the x-mac-arabic, x-mac-farsi and x-mac-hebrew character encodings are vulnerable to XSS attacks due to some characters being converted to angle brackets when displayed by the rendering engine. Sites using these character encodings would thus be potentially vulnerable to script injection attacks if their script filtering code fails to strip out these specific characters.

    description Mozilla Thunderbird 3.0 was updated to update 3.0.11 fixing several security issues. MFSA 2010-74: Mozilla developers identified and fixed several memory safety bugs in the browser engine used in Firefox and other Mozilla-based products. Some of these bugs 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. Jesee Ruderman, Andreas Gal, Nils, and Brian Hackett reported memory safety problems that affected Firefox 3.6 and Firefox 3.5. (CVE-2010-3776) Igor Bukanov reported a memory safety problem that was fixed in Firefox 3.6 only. (CVE-2010-3777) Jesse Ruderman reported a crash which affected Firefox 3.5 only. (CVE-2010-3778) MFSA 2010-75 / CVE-2010-3769: Dirk Heinrich reported that on Windows platforms when document.write() was called with a very long string a buffer overflow was caused in line breaking routines attempting to process the string for display. Such cases triggered an invalid read past the end of an array causing a crash which an attacker could potentially use to run arbitrary code on a victim's computer. MFSA 2010-76 / CVE-2010-3771: Security researcher echo reported that a web page could open a window with an about:blank location and then inject an element into that page which upon submission would redirect to a chrome: document. The effect of this defect was that the original page would wind up with a reference to a chrome-privileged object, the opened window, which could be leveraged for privilege escalation attacks. Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 provided proof-of-concept code demonstrating how the above vulnerability could be used to run arbitrary code with chrome privileges. MFSA 2010-77 / CVE-2010-3772: Security researcher wushi of team509 reported that when a XUL tree had an HTML
    element nested inside a element then code attempting to display content in the XUL tree would incorrectly treat the
    element as a parent node to tree content underneath it resulting in incorrect indexes being calculated for the child content. These incorrect indexes were used in subsequent array operations which resulted in writing data past the end of an allocated buffer. An attacker could use this issue to crash a victim's browser and run arbitrary code on their machine. MFSA 2010-78 / CVE-2010-3768: Mozilla added the OTS font sanitizing library to prevent downloadable fonts from exposing vulnerabilities in the underlying OS font code. This library mitigates against several issues independently reported by Red Hat Security Response Team member Marc Schoenefeld and Mozilla security researcher Christoph Diehl. MFSA 2010-79 / CVE-2010-3775: Security researcher Gregory Fleischer reported that when a Java LiveConnect script was loaded via a data: URL which redirects via a meta refresh, then the resulting plugin object was created with the wrong security principal and thus received elevated privileges such as the abilities to read local files, launch processes, and create network connections. MFSA 2010-80 / CVE-2010-3766: Security researcher regenrecht reported via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative that a nsDOMAttribute node can be modified without informing the iterator object responsible for various DOM traversals. This flaw could lead to a inconsistent state where the iterator points to an object it believes is part of the DOM but actually points to some other object. If such an object had been deleted and its memory reclaimed by the system, then the iterator could be used to call into attacker-controlled memory. MFSA 2010-81 / CVE-2010-3767: Security researcher regenrecht reported via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative that JavaScript arrays were vulnerable to an integer overflow vulnerability. The report demonstrated that an array could be constructed containing a very large number of items such that when memory was allocated to store the array items, the integer value used to calculate the buffer size would overflow resulting in too small a buffer being allocated. Subsequent use of the array object could then result in data being written past the end of the buffer and causing memory corruption.

    element nested inside a element then code attempting to display content in the XUL tree would incorrectly treat the
    element as a parent node to tree content underneath it resulting in incorrect indexes being calculated for the child content. These incorrect indexes were used in subsequent array operations which resulted in writing data past the end of an allocated buffer. An attacker could use this issue to crash a victim's browser and run arbitrary code on their machine. MFSA 2010-78 / CVE-2010-3768: Mozilla added the OTS font sanitizing library to prevent downloadable fonts from exposing vulnerabilities in the underlying OS font code. This library mitigates against several issues independently reported by Red Hat Security Response Team member Marc Schoenefeld and Mozilla security researcher Christoph Diehl. MFSA 2010-79 / CVE-2010-3775: Security researcher Gregory Fleischer reported that when a Java LiveConnect script was loaded via a data: URL which redirects via a meta refresh, then the resulting plugin object was created with the wrong security principal and thus received elevated privileges such as the abilities to read local files, launch processes, and create network connections. MFSA 2010-80 / CVE-2010-3766: Security researcher regenrecht reported via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative that a nsDOMAttribute node can be modified without informing the iterator object responsible for various DOM traversals. This flaw could lead to a inconsistent state where the iterator points to an object it believes is part of the DOM but actually points to some other object. If such an object had been deleted and its memory reclaimed by the system, then the iterator could be used to call into attacker-controlled memory. MFSA 2010-81 / CVE-2010-3767: Security researcher regenrecht reported via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative that JavaScript arrays were vulnerable to an integer overflow vulnerability. The report demonstrated that an array could be constructed containing a very large number of items such that when memory was allocated to store the array items, the integer value used to calculate the buffer size would overflow resulting in too small a buffer being allocated. Subsequent use of the array object could then result in data being written past the end of the buffer and causing memory corruption. MFSA 2010-82 / CVE-2010-3773: Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported that the fix for CVE-2010-0179 could be circumvented permitting the execution of arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges. MFSA 2010-83 / CVE-2010-3774: Google security researcher Michal Zalewski reported that when a window was opened to a site resulting in a network or certificate error page, the opening site could access the document inside the opened window and inject arbitrary content. An attacker could use this bug to spoof the location bar and trick a user into thinking they were on a different site than they actually were. MFSA 2010-84 / CVE-2010-3770: Security researchers Yosuke Hasegawa and Masatoshi Kimura reported that the x-mac-arabic, x-mac-farsi and x-mac-hebrew character encodings are vulnerable to XSS attacks due to some characters being converted to angle brackets when displayed by the rendering engine. Sites using these character encodings would thus be potentially vulnerable to script injection attacks if their script filtering code fails to strip out these specific characters.

    description Mozilla SeaMonkey 2.0 was updated to update 2.0.11 fixing several security issues. MFSA 2010-74: Mozilla developers identified and fixed several memory safety bugs in the browser engine used in Firefox and other Mozilla-based products. Some of these bugs 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. Jesee Ruderman, Andreas Gal, Nils, and Brian Hackett reported memory safety problems that affected Firefox 3.6 and Firefox 3.5. (CVE-2010-3776) Igor Bukanov reported a memory safety problem that was fixed in Firefox 3.6 only. (CVE-2010-3777) Jesse Ruderman reported a crash which affected Firefox 3.5 only. (CVE-2010-3778) MFSA 2010-75 / CVE-2010-3769: Dirk Heinrich reported that on Windows platforms when document.write() was called with a very long string a buffer overflow was caused in line breaking routines attempting to process the string for display. Such cases triggered an invalid read past the end of an array causing a crash which an attacker could potentially use to run arbitrary code on a victim's computer.

Subsequent use of the array object could then result in data being written past the end of the buffer and causing memory corruption (CVE-2010-3767). Security researcher regenrecht reported via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative that a nsDOMAttribute node can be modified without informing the iterator object responsible for various DOM traversals.

Security researcher wushi of team509 reported that when a XUL tree had an HTML \ element nested inside a \ element then code attempting to display content in the XUL tree would incorrectly treat the \ element as a parent node to tree content underneath it resulting in incorrect indexes being calculated for the child content. These incorrect indexes were used in subsequent array operations which resulted in writing data past the end of an allocated buffer. An attacker could use this issue to crash a victim's browser and run arbitrary code on their machine (CVE-2010-3772). Security researcher echo reported that a web page could open a window with an about:blank location and then inject an \ element into that page which upon submission would redirect to a chrome: document. The effect of this defect was that the original page would wind up with a reference to a chrome-privileged object, the opened window, which could be leveraged for privilege escalation attacks (CVE-2010-3771). Dirk Heinrich reported that on Windows platforms when document.write() was called with a very long string a buffer overflow was caused in line breaking routines attempting to process the string for display. Such cases triggered an invalid read past the end of an array causing a crash which an attacker could potentially use to run arbitrary code on a victim's computer (CVE-2010-3769). Mozilla developers identified and fixed several memory safety bugs in the browser engine used in Firefox and other Mozilla-based products. Some of these bugs 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-2010-3776, CVE-2010-3777). Packages for 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance Program. Please visit this link to learn more: http://store.mandriva.com/product_info.php?cPath=149&products_id=4 90 Additionally, some packages which require so, have been rebuilt and are being provided as updates. Update : A mistake was done with the MDVSA-2010:251 and the MDVSA-2010:251-1 advisories where the localization files for firefox software was NOT updated to the 3.6.13 version. The secteam wishes to apologise for the unfortunate mistake and also wishes everyone a great christmas. Regards // Santa Claus

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having critical 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 Firefox is an open source web browser. 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-2010-3766, CVE-2010-3767, CVE-2010-3772, CVE-2010-3776, CVE-2010-3777) A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled malformed JavaScript. A website with an object containing malicious JavaScript could cause Firefox to execute that JavaScript with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2010-3771) This update adds support for the Sanitiser for OpenType (OTS) library to Firefox. This library helps prevent potential exploits in malformed OpenType fonts by verifying the font file prior to use. (CVE-2010-3768) A flaw was found in the way Firefox loaded Java LiveConnect scripts. Malicious web content could load a Java LiveConnect script in a way that would result in the plug-in object having elevated privileges, allowing it to execute Java code with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2010-3775) It was found that the fix for CVE-2010-0179 was incomplete when the Firebug add-on was used. If a user visited a website containing malicious JavaScript while the Firebug add-on was enabled, it could cause Firefox to execute arbitrary JavaScript with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2010-3773) A flaw was found in the way Firefox presented the location bar to users. A malicious website could trick a user into thinking they are visiting the site reported by the location bar, when the page is actually content controlled by an attacker. (CVE-2010-3774) A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the Firefox x-mac-arabic, x-mac-farsi, and x-mac-hebrew character encodings. Certain characters were converted to angle brackets when displayed. If server-side script filtering missed these cases, it could result in Firefox executing JavaScript code with the permissions of a different website. (CVE-2010-3770) For technical details regarding these flaws, refer to the Mozilla security advisories for Firefox 3.6.13. You can find a link to the Mozilla advisories in the References section of this erratum. All Firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain Firefox version 3.6.13, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
