CWE CWE-119
CAPEC
  • Buffer Overflow via Environment Variables
    This attack pattern involves causing a buffer overflow through manipulation of environment variables. Once the attacker finds that they can modify an environment variable, they may try to overflow associated buffers. This attack leverages implicit trust often placed in environment variables.
  • Overflow Buffers
    Buffer Overflow attacks target improper or missing bounds checking on buffer operations, typically triggered by input injected by an attacker. As a consequence, an attacker is able to write past the boundaries of allocated buffer regions in memory, causing a program crash or potentially redirection of execution as per the attackers' choice.
  • Client-side Injection-induced Buffer Overflow
    This type of attack exploits a buffer overflow vulnerability in targeted client software through injection of malicious content from a custom-built hostile service.
  • Filter Failure through Buffer Overflow
    In this attack, the idea is to cause an active filter to fail by causing an oversized transaction. An attacker may try to feed overly long input strings to the program in an attempt to overwhelm the filter (by causing a buffer overflow) and hoping that the filter does not fail securely (i.e. the user input is let into the system unfiltered).
  • MIME Conversion
    An attacker exploits a weakness in the MIME conversion routine to cause a buffer overflow and gain control over the mail server machine. The MIME system is designed to allow various different information formats to be interpreted and sent via e-mail. Attack points exist when data are converted to MIME compatible format and back.
  • Overflow Binary Resource File
    An attack of this type exploits a buffer overflow vulnerability in the handling of binary resources. Binary resources may include music files like MP3, image files like JPEG files, and any other binary file. These attacks may pass unnoticed to the client machine through normal usage of files, such as a browser loading a seemingly innocent JPEG file. This can allow the attacker access to the execution stack and execute arbitrary code in the target process. This attack pattern is a variant of standard buffer overflow attacks using an unexpected vector (binary files) to wrap its attack and open up a new attack vector. The attacker is required to either directly serve the binary content to the victim, or place it in a locale like a MP3 sharing application, for the victim to download. The attacker then is notified upon the download or otherwise locates the vulnerability opened up by the buffer overflow.
  • Buffer Overflow via Symbolic Links
    This type of attack leverages the use of symbolic links to cause buffer overflows. An attacker can try to create or manipulate a symbolic link file such that its contents result in out of bounds data. When the target software processes the symbolic link file, it could potentially overflow internal buffers with insufficient bounds checking.
  • Overflow Variables and Tags
    This type of attack leverages the use of tags or variables from a formatted configuration data to cause buffer overflow. The attacker crafts a malicious HTML page or configuration file that includes oversized strings, thus causing an overflow.
  • Buffer Overflow via Parameter Expansion
    In this attack, the target software is given input that the attacker knows will be modified and expanded in size during processing. This attack relies on the target software failing to anticipate that the expanded data may exceed some internal limit, thereby creating a buffer overflow.
  • Buffer Overflow in an API Call
    This attack targets libraries or shared code modules which are vulnerable to buffer overflow attacks. An attacker who has access to an API may try to embed malicious code in the API function call and exploit a buffer overflow vulnerability in the function's implementation. All clients that make use of the code library thus become vulnerable by association. This has a very broad effect on security across a system, usually affecting more than one software process.
  • Buffer Overflow in Local Command-Line Utilities
    This attack targets command-line utilities available in a number of shells. An attacker can leverage a vulnerability found in a command-line utility to escalate privilege to root.

    description An updated thunderbird package that fixes several security issues is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. 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 Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client. Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed HTML content. Malicious HTML content could cause Thunderbird to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2010-1585, CVE-2011-0053, CVE-2011-0062) A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird handled malformed JPEG images. An HTML mail message containing a malicious JPEG image could cause Thunderbird to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2011-0061) All Thunderbird users should upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these issues. All running instances of Thunderbird must be restarted for the update to take effect.

    description Security issues were identified and fixed in mozilla-thunderbird : Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.17 and 3.6.x before 3.6.14, Thunderbird before 3.1.8, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.12 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors (CVE-2011-0053). Buffer overflow in Mozilla Firefox 3.6.x before 3.6.14, Thunderbird before 3.1.8, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.12 might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted JPEG image (CVE-2011-0061). Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox 3.6.x before 3.6.14 and Thunderbird 3.1.x before 3.1.8 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors (CVE-2011-0062). The nsIScriptableUnescapeHTML.parseFragment method in the ParanoidFragmentSink protection mechanism in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.17 and 3.6.x before 3.6.14, Thunderbird before 3.1.8, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.12 does not properly sanitize HTML in a chrome document, which makes it easier for remote attackers to execute arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges via a javascript: URI in input to an extension, as demonstrated by a javascript:alert sequence in (1) the HREF attribute of an A element or (2) the ACTION attribute of a FORM element (CVE-2010-1585).

    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2011:0310 : Updated firefox packages that fix several security issues and one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, 5, and 6. 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. XULRunner provides the XUL Runtime environment for Mozilla Firefox. A flaw was found in the way Firefox sanitized HTML content in extensions. If an extension loaded or rendered malicious content using the ParanoidFragmentSink class, it could fail to safely display the content, causing Firefox to execute arbitrary JavaScript with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2010-1585) A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled dialog boxes. An attacker could use this flaw to create a malicious web page that would present a blank dialog box that has non-functioning buttons. If a user closes the dialog box window, it could unexpectedly grant the malicious web page elevated privileges. (CVE-2011-0051) 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-2011-0053, CVE-2011-0055, CVE-2011-0058, CVE-2011-0062) Several flaws were found in the way Firefox handled malformed JavaScript. A website containing malicious JavaScript could cause Firefox to execute that JavaScript with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2011-0054, CVE-2011-0056, CVE-2011-0057) A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled malformed JPEG images. A website containing a malicious JPEG image could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2011-0061) A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled plug-ins that perform HTTP requests. If a plug-in performed an HTTP request, and the server sent a 307 redirect response, the plug-in was not notified, and the HTTP request was forwarded. The forwarded request could contain custom headers, which could result in a Cross Site Request Forgery attack. (CVE-2011-0059) For technical details regarding these flaws, refer to the Mozilla security advisories for Firefox 3.6.14. You can find a link to the Mozilla advisories in the References section of this erratum. This update also fixes the following bug : * On Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5, running the 'firefox -setDefaultBrowser' command caused warnings such as the following : libgnomevfs-WARNING **: Deprecated function. User modifications to the MIME database are no longer supported. This update disables the 'setDefaultBrowser' option. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 users wishing to set a default web browser can use Applications -> Preferences -> More Preferences -> Preferred Applications. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 users can use System -> Preferences -> Preferred Applications. (BZ#463131, BZ#665031) All Firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain Firefox version 3.6.14, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

    description MozillaThunderbird was updated to version 3.1.8, fixing various security issues. Following security issues were fixed: MFSA 2011-01: 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. Jesse Ruderman, Igor Bukanov, Olli Pettay, Gary Kwong, Jeff Walden, Henry Sivonen, Martijn Wargers, David Baron and Marcia Knous reported memory safety problems that affected Firefox 3.6 and Firefox 3.5. (CVE-2011-0053) Igor Bukanov and Gary Kwong reported memory safety problems that affected Firefox 3.6 only. (CVE-2011-0062) MFSA 2011-08 / CVE-2010-1585: Mozilla security developer Roberto Suggi Liverani reported that ParanoidFragmentSink, a class used to sanitize potentially unsafe HTML for display, allows javascript: URLs and other inline JavaScript when the embedding document is a chrome document. While there are no unsafe uses of this class in any released products, extension code could have potentially used it in an unsafe manner. MFSA 2011-09 / CVE-2011-0061: Security researcher Jordi Chancel reported that a JPEG image could be constructed that would be decoded incorrectly, causing data to be written past the end of a buffer created to store the image. An attacker could potentially craft such an image that would cause malicious code to be stored in memory and then later executed on a victim's computer.

(CVE-2011-0062) MFSA 2011-02 / CVE-2011-0051: Security researcher Zach Hoffman reported that a recursive call to eval() wrapped in a try/catch statement places the browser into a inconsistent state. Any dialog box opened in this state is displayed without text and with non-functioning buttons. Closing the window causes the dialog to evaluate to true. An attacker could use this issue to force a user into accepting any dialog, such as one granting elevated privileges to the page presenting the dialog. MFSA 2011-03 / CVE-2011-0055: Security researcher regenrecht reported via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative that a method used by JSON.stringify contained a use-after-free error in which a currently in-use pointer was freed and subsequently dereferenced. This could lead to arbitrary code execution if an attacker was able to store malicious code in the freed section of memory. Mozilla developer Igor Bukanov also independently discovered and reported this issue two weeks after the initial report was received. MFSA 2011-04 / CVE-2011-0054: Security researcher Christian Holler reported that the JavaScript engine's internal memory mapping of non-local JS variables contained a buffer overflow which could potentially be used by an attacker to run arbitrary code on a victim's computer. MFSA 2011-05 / CVE-2011-0056: Security researcher Christian Holler reported that the JavaScript engine's internal mapping of string values contained an error in cases where the number of values being stored was above 64K. In such cases an offset pointer was manually moved forwards and backwards to access the larger address space. If an exception was thrown between the time that the offset pointer was moved forward and the time it was reset, then the exception object would be read from an invalid memory address, potentially executing attacker-controlled memory. MFSA 2011-06 / CVE-2011-0057: Daniel Kozlowski reported that a JavaScript Worker could be used to keep a reference to an object that could be freed during garbage collection. Subsequent calls through this deleted reference could cause attacker-controlled memory to be executed on a victim's computer. MFSA 2011-07 / CVE-2011-0058: Alex Miller reported that when very long strings were constructed and inserted into an HTML document, the browser would incorrectly construct the layout objects used to display the text. Under such conditions an incorrect length would be calculated for a text run resulting in too small of a memory buffer being allocated to store the text. This issue could be used by an attacker to write data past the end of the buffer and execute malicious code on a victim's computer. This issue affects only Mozilla browsers on Windows. MFSA 2011-08 / CVE-2010-1585: Mozilla security developer Roberto Suggi Liverani reported that ParanoidFragmentSink, a class used to sanitize potentially unsafe HTML for display, allows javascript: URLs and other inline JavaScript when the embedding document is a chrome document.

An attacker could potentially craft such an image that would cause malicious code to be stored in memory and then later executed on a victim's computer. MFSA 2011-10 / CVE-2011-0059: Adobe security researcher Peleus Uhley reported that when plugin-initiated requests receive a 307 redirect response, the plugin is not notified and the request is forwarded to the new location. This is true even for cross-site redirects, so any custom headers that were added as part of the initial request would be forwarded intact across origins. This poses a CSRF risk for web applications that rely on custom headers only being present in requests from their own origin.

References Jesse Ruderman, Igor Bukanov, Olli Pettay, Gary Kwong, Jeff Walden, Henry Sivonen, Martijn Wargers, David Baron and Marcia Knous reported memory safety problems that affected Firefox 3.6 and Firefox 3.5. (CVE-2011-0053) Igor Bukanov and Gary Kwong reported memory safety problems that affected Firefox 3.6 only. (CVE-2011-0062) MFSA 2011-02 / CVE-2011-0051: Security researcher Zach Hoffman reported that a recursive call to eval() wrapped in a try/catch statement places the browser into a inconsistent state. Any dialog box opened in this state is displayed without text and with non-functioning buttons. Closing the window causes the dialog to evaluate to true. An attacker could use this issue to force a user into accepting any dialog, such as one granting elevated privileges to the page presenting the dialog. MFSA 2011-03 / CVE-2011-0055: Security researcher regenrecht reported via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative that a method used by JSON.stringify contained a use-after-free error in which a currently in-use pointer was freed and subsequently dereferenced. This could lead to arbitrary code execution if an attacker was able to store malicious code in the freed section of memory. Mozilla developer Igor Bukanov also independently discovered and reported this issue two weeks after the initial report was received. MFSA 2011-04 / CVE-2011-0054: Security researcher Christian Holler reported that the JavaScript engine's internal memory mapping of non-local JS variables contained a buffer overflow which could potentially be used by an attacker to run arbitrary code on a victim's computer. MFSA 2011-05 / CVE-2011-0056: Security researcher Christian Holler reported that the JavaScript engine's internal mapping of string values contained an error in cases where the number of values being stored was above 64K. In such cases an offset pointer was manually moved forwards and backwards to access the larger address space. If an exception was thrown between the time that the offset pointer was moved forward and the time it was reset, then the exception object would be read from an invalid memory address, potentially executing attacker-controlled memory. MFSA 2011-06 / CVE-2011-0057: Daniel Kozlowski reported that a JavaScript Worker could be used to keep a reference to an object that could be freed during garbage collection. Subsequent calls through this deleted reference could cause attacker-controlled memory to be executed on a victim's computer. MFSA 2011-07 / CVE-2011-0058: Alex Miller reported that when very long strings were constructed and inserted into an HTML document, the browser would incorrectly construct the layout objects used to display the text. Under such conditions an incorrect length would be calculated for a text run resulting in too small of a memory buffer being allocated to store the text. This issue could be used by an attacker to write data past the end of the buffer and execute malicious code on a victim's computer. This issue affects only Mozilla browsers on Windows. MFSA 2011-08 / CVE-2010-1585: Mozilla security developer Roberto Suggi Liverani reported that ParanoidFragmentSink, a class used to sanitize potentially unsafe HTML for display, allows javascript: URLs and other inline JavaScript when the embedding document is a chrome document. While there are no unsafe uses of this class in any released products, extension code could have potentially used it in an unsafe manner. MFSA 2011-09 / CVE-2011-0061: Security researcher Jordi Chancel reported that a JPEG image could be constructed that would be decoded incorrectly, causing data to be written past the end of a buffer created to store the image. An attacker could potentially craft such an image that would cause malicious code to be stored in memory and then later executed on a victim's computer. MFSA 2011-10 / CVE-2011-0059: Adobe security researcher Peleus Uhley reported that when plugin-initiated requests receive a 307 redirect response, the plugin is not notified and the request is forwarded to the new location. This is true even for cross-site redirects, so any custom headers that were added as part of the initial request would be forwarded intact across origins. This poses a CSRF risk for web applications that rely on custom headers only being present in requests from their own origin.

    title openSUSE Security Update : MozillaFirefox (MozillaFirefox-4111)
  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2011-0310.NASL
    description Updated firefox packages that fix several security issues and one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, 5, and 6. 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. XULRunner provides the XUL Runtime environment for Mozilla Firefox. A flaw was found in the way Firefox sanitized HTML content in extensions. If an extension loaded or rendered malicious content using the ParanoidFragmentSink class, it could fail to safely display the content, causing Firefox to execute arbitrary JavaScript with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2010-1585) A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled dialog boxes. An attacker could use this flaw to create a malicious web page that would present a blank dialog box that has non-functioning buttons. If a user closes the dialog box window, it could unexpectedly grant the malicious web page elevated privileges. (CVE-2011-0051) 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-2011-0053, CVE-2011-0055, CVE-2011-0058, CVE-2011-0062) Several flaws were found in the way Firefox handled malformed JavaScript. A website containing malicious JavaScript could cause Firefox to execute that JavaScript with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2011-0054, CVE-2011-0056, CVE-2011-0057) A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled malformed JPEG images. A website containing a malicious JPEG image could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2011-0061) A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled plug-ins that perform HTTP requests. If a plug-in performed an HTTP request, and the server sent a 307 redirect response, the plug-in was not notified, and the HTTP request was forwarded. The forwarded request could contain custom headers, which could result in a Cross Site Request Forgery attack. (CVE-2011-0059) For technical details regarding these flaws, refer to the Mozilla security advisories for Firefox 3.6.14. You can find a link to the Mozilla advisories in the References section of this erratum. This update also fixes the following bug : * On Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5, running the 'firefox -setDefaultBrowser' command caused warnings such as the following : libgnomevfs-WARNING **: Deprecated function. User modifications to the MIME database are no longer supported. This update disables the 'setDefaultBrowser' option. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 users wishing to set a default web browser can use Applications -> Preferences -> More Preferences -> Preferred Applications. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 users can use System -> Preferences -> Preferred Applications. (BZ#463131, BZ#665031) All Firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain Firefox version 3.6.14, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

    description Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.17 and 3.6.x before 3.6.14, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.12, allows remote attackers to hijack the authentication of arbitrary users for requests that were initiated by a plugin and received a 307 redirect to a page on a different website. (CVE-2011-0059) Buffer overflow in Mozilla Firefox 3.6.x before 3.6.14, Thunderbird before 3.1.8, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.12 might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted JPEG image. (CVE-2011-0061) The nsIScriptableUnescapeHTML.parseFragment method in the ParanoidFragmentSink protection mechanism in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.17 and 3.6.x before 3.6.14, Thunderbird before 3.1.8, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.12 does not properly sanitize HTML in a chrome document, which makes it easier for remote attackers to execute arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges via a javascript: URI in input to an extension, as demonstrated by a javascript:alert sequence in (1) the HREF attribute of an A element or (2) the ACTION attribute of a FORM element. (CVE-2010-1585) Buffer overflow in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.17 and 3.6.x before 3.6.14, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.12, on Windows allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption) via a long string that triggers construction of a long text run. (CVE-2011-0058) Use-after-free vulnerability in the Web Workers implementation in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.17 and 3.6.x before 3.6.14, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.12, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via vectors related to a JavaScript Worker and garbage collection. (CVE-2011-0057) Buffer overflow in the JavaScript engine in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.17 and 3.6.x before 3.6.14, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.12, might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via vectors involving exception timing and a large number of string values, aka an atom map issue. (CVE-2011-0056) Buffer overflow in the JavaScript engine in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.17 and 3.6.x before 3.6.14, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.12, might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via vectors involving non-local JavaScript variables, aka an upvarMap issue. (CVE-2011-0054) Use-after-free vulnerability in the JSON.stringify method in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.17 and 3.6.x before 3.6.14, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.12, might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors. (CVE-2011-0055) Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.17 and 3.6.x before 3.6.14, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.12, does not properly handle certain recursive eval calls, which makes it easier for remote attackers to force a user to respond positively to a dialog question, as demonstrated by a question about granting privileges. (CVE-2011-0051) Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox 3.6.x before 3.6.14 and Thunderbird 3.1.x before 3.1.8 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors.

(CVE-2011-0053, CVE-2011-0055, CVE-2011-0058, CVE-2011-0062) Several flaws were found in the way Firefox handled malformed JavaScript. A website containing malicious JavaScript could cause Firefox to execute that JavaScript with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2011-0054, CVE-2011-0056, CVE-2011-0057) A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled malformed JPEG images. A website containing a malicious JPEG image could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2011-0061) A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled plug-ins that perform HTTP requests. If a plug-in performed an HTTP request, and the server sent a 307 redirect response, the plug-in was not notified, and the HTTP request was forwarded. The forwarded request could contain custom headers, which could result in a Cross Site Request Forgery attack. (CVE-2011-0059) For technical details regarding these flaws, refer to the Mozilla security advisories for Firefox 3.6.14. You can find a link to the Mozilla advisories in the References section of this erratum. This update also fixes the following bug : * On Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5, running the 'firefox -setDefaultBrowser' command caused warnings such as the following : libgnomevfs-WARNING **: Deprecated function. User modifications to the MIME database are no longer supported. This update disables the 'setDefaultBrowser' option. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 users wishing to set a default web browser can use Applications -> Preferences -> More Preferences -> Preferred Applications. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 users can use System -> Preferences -> Preferred Applications. (BZ#463131, BZ#665031) All Firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain Firefox version 3.6.14, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

    description Mozilla SeaMonkey was updated to version 2.0.12, fixing various security issues. Following security issues were fixed: MFSA 2011-01: 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. Jesse Ruderman, Igor Bukanov, Olli Pettay, Gary Kwong, Jeff Walden, Henry Sivonen, Martijn Wargers, David Baron and Marcia Knous reported memory safety problems that affected Firefox 3.6 and Firefox 3.5. (CVE-2011-0053) Igor Bukanov and Gary Kwong reported memory safety problems that affected Firefox 3.6 only. (CVE-2011-0062) MFSA 2011-02 / CVE-2011-0051: Security researcher Zach Hoffman reported that a recursive call to eval() wrapped in a try/catch statement places the browser into a inconsistent state. Any dialog box opened in this state is displayed without text and with non-functioning buttons. Closing the window causes the dialog to evaluate to true. An attacker could use this issue to force a user into accepting any dialog, such as one granting elevated privileges to the page presenting the dialog. MFSA 2011-03 / CVE-2011-0055: Security researcher regenrecht reported via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative that a method used by JSON.stringify contained a use-after-free error in which a currently in-use pointer was freed and subsequently dereferenced. This could lead to arbitrary code execution if an attacker was able to store malicious code in the freed section of memory. Mozilla developer Igor Bukanov also independently discovered and reported this issue two weeks after the initial report was received. MFSA 2011-04 / CVE-2011-0054: Security researcher Christian Holler reported that the JavaScript engine's internal memory mapping of non-local JS variables contained a buffer overflow which could potentially be used by an attacker to run arbitrary code on a victim's computer. MFSA 2011-05 / CVE-2011-0056: Security researcher Christian Holler reported that the JavaScript engine's internal mapping of string values contained an error in cases where the number of values being stored was above 64K. In such cases an offset pointer was manually moved forwards and backwards to access the larger address space. If an exception was thrown between the time that the offset pointer was moved forward and the time it was reset, then the exception object would be read from an invalid memory address, potentially executing attacker-controlled memory. MFSA 2011-06 / CVE-2011-0057: Daniel Kozlowski reported that a JavaScript Worker could be used to keep a reference to an object that could be freed during garbage collection. Subsequent calls through this deleted reference could cause attacker-controlled memory to be executed on a victim's computer. MFSA 2011-07 / CVE-2011-0058: Alex Miller reported that when very long strings were constructed and inserted into an HTML document, the browser would incorrectly construct the layout objects used to display the text. Under such conditions an incorrect length would be calculated for a text run resulting in too small of a memory buffer being allocated to store the text. This issue could be used by an attacker to write data past the end of the buffer and execute malicious code on a victim's computer. This issue affects only Mozilla browsers on Windows. MFSA 2011-08 / CVE-2010-1585: Mozilla security developer Roberto Suggi Liverani reported that ParanoidFragmentSink, a class used to sanitize potentially unsafe HTML for display, allows javascript: URLs and other inline JavaScript when the embedding document is a chrome document. While there are no unsafe uses of this class in any released products, extension code could have potentially used it in an unsafe manner. MFSA 2011-09 / CVE-2011-0061: Security researcher Jordi Chancel reported that a JPEG image could be constructed that would be decoded incorrectly, causing data to be written past the end of a buffer created to store the image. An attacker could potentially craft such an image that would cause malicious code to be stored in memory and then later executed on a victim's computer. MFSA 2011-10 / CVE-2011-0059: Adobe security researcher Peleus Uhley reported that when plugin-initiated requests receive a 307 redirect response, the plugin is not notified and the request is forwarded to the new location. This is true even for cross-site redirects, so any custom headers that were added as part of the initial request would be forwarded intact across origins. This poses a CSRF risk for web applications that rely on custom headers only being present in requests from their own origin.

MFSA 2011-03 / CVE-2011-0055: Security researcher regenrecht reported via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative that a method used by JSON.stringify contained a use-after-free error in which a currently in-use pointer was freed and subsequently dereferenced. This could lead to arbitrary code execution if an attacker was able to store malicious code in the freed section of memory. Mozilla developer Igor Bukanov also independently discovered and reported this issue two weeks after the initial report was received. MFSA 2011-04 / CVE-2011-0054: Security researcher Christian Holler reported that the JavaScript engine's internal memory mapping of non-local JS variables contained a buffer overflow which could potentially be used by an attacker to run arbitrary code on a victim's computer. MFSA 2011-05 / CVE-2011-0056: Security researcher Christian Holler reported that the JavaScript engine's internal mapping of string values contained an error in cases where the number of values being stored was above 64K. In such cases an offset pointer was manually moved forwards and backwards to access the larger address space. If an exception was thrown between the time that the offset pointer was moved forward and the time it was reset, then the exception object would be read from an invalid memory address, potentially executing attacker-controlled memory. MFSA 2011-06 / CVE-2011-0057: Daniel Kozlowski reported that a JavaScript Worker could be used to keep a reference to an object that could be freed during garbage collection. Subsequent calls through this deleted reference could cause attacker-controlled memory to be executed on a victim's computer. MFSA 2011-07 / CVE-2011-0058: Alex Miller reported that when very long strings were constructed and inserted into an HTML document, the browser would incorrectly construct the layout objects used to display the text. Under such conditions an incorrect length would be calculated for a text run resulting in too small of a memory buffer being allocated to store the text. This issue could be used by an attacker to write data past the end of the buffer and execute malicious code on a victim's computer. This issue affects only Mozilla browsers on Windows. MFSA 2011-08 / CVE-2010-1585: Mozilla security developer Roberto Suggi Liverani reported that ParanoidFragmentSink, a class used to sanitize potentially unsafe HTML for display, allows javascript: URLs and other inline JavaScript when the embedding document is a chrome document. While there are no unsafe uses of this class in any released products, extension code could have potentially used it in an unsafe manner. MFSA 2011-09 / CVE-2011-0061: Security researcher Jordi Chancel reported that a JPEG image could be constructed that would be decoded incorrectly, causing data to be written past the end of a buffer created to store the image. An attacker could potentially craft such an image that would cause malicious code to be stored in memory and then later executed on a victim's computer. MFSA 2011-10 / CVE-2011-0059: Adobe security researcher Peleus Uhley reported that when plugin-initiated requests receive a 307 redirect response, the plugin is not notified and the request is forwarded to the new location. This is true even for cross-site redirects, so any custom headers that were added as part of the initial request would be forwarded intact across origins. This poses a CSRF risk for web applications that rely on custom headers only being present in requests from their own origin.

    description The installed version of Firefox 3.6 is earlier than 3.6.14. Such versions are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - Multiple memory corruption errors exist and may lead to arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2011-01) - An error exists in the processing of recursive calls to 'eval()' when the call is wrapped in a try/catch statement. This error causes dialog boxes to be displayed with no content and non-functioning buttons. Closing the dialog results in default acceptance of the dialog. (MFSA 2011-02) - A use-after-free error exists in a method used by 'JSON.stringify' and can allow arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2011-03) - A buffer overflow vulnerability exists in the JavaScript engine's internal memory mapping of non-local variables and may lead to code execution. (MFSA 2011-04) - A buffer overflow vulnerability exists in the JavaScript engine's internal mapping of string values and may lead to code execution. (MFSA 2011-05) - A use-after-free error exists such that a JavaScript 'Worker' can be used to keep a reference to an object which can be freed during garbage collection. This vulnerability may lead to arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2011-06) - A buffer overflow error exists related to the creation very long strings and the insertion of those strings into an HTML document. This vulnerability may lead to arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2011-07) - An input validation error exists in the class, 'ParanoidFragmentSink', which allows inline JavaScript and 'javascript:' URLs in a chrome document. Note that no unsafe usage occurs in Mozilla products, however community generated extensions could.(MFSA 2011-08) - A buffer overflow exists related to JPEG decoding and may lead to arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2011-09) - A cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability exists when an HTTP 307 redirect is received in response to a plugin's request. The request is forwarded to the new location without the plugin's knowledge and with custom headers intact, even across origins. (MFSA 2011-10)
