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.

  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2012-0388.NASL
    description An updated thunderbird package that fixes multiple security issues is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 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 Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client. Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed content. Malicious content could cause Thunderbird to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2012-0461, CVE-2012-0462, CVE-2012-0464) Two flaws were found in the way Thunderbird parsed certain Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) image files. An HTML mail message containing a malicious SVG image file could cause an information leak, or cause Thunderbird to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2012-0456, CVE-2012-0457) A flaw could allow malicious content to bypass intended restrictions, possibly leading to a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack if a user were tricked into dropping a 'javascript:' link onto a frame. (CVE-2012-0455) It was found that the home page could be set to a 'javascript:' link. If a user were tricked into setting such a home page by dragging a link to the home button, it could cause Firefox to repeatedly crash, eventually leading to arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running Firefox. A similar flaw was found and fixed in Thunderbird. (CVE-2012-0458) A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird parsed certain, remote content containing 'cssText'. Malicious, remote content could cause Thunderbird to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2012-0459) It was found that by using the DOM fullscreen API, untrusted content could bypass the mozRequestFullscreen security protections. Malicious content could exploit this API flaw to cause user interface spoofing. (CVE-2012-0460) A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird handled content with multiple Content Security Policy (CSP) headers. This could lead to a cross-site scripting attack if used in conjunction with a website that has a header injection flaw. (CVE-2012-0451) Note: All issues except CVE-2012-0456 and CVE-2012-0457 cannot be exploited by a specially crafted HTML mail message as JavaScript is disabled by default for mail messages. It could be exploited another way in Thunderbird, for example, when viewing the full remote content of an RSS feed. All Thunderbird users should upgrade to this updated package, which contains Thunderbird version 10.0.3 ESR, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Thunderbird must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

(CVE-2012-0451) - Mozilla Firefox before 3.6.28 and 4.x through 10.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.3, Thunderbird before 3.1.20 and 5.0 through 10.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.3, and SeaMonkey before 2.8 do not properly restrict drag-and-drop operations on javascript: URLs, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via a crafted web page, related to a 'DragAndDropJacking' issue. (CVE-2012-0455) - The SVG Filters implementation in Mozilla Firefox before 3.6.28 and 4.x through 10.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.3, Thunderbird before 3.1.20 and 5.0 through 10.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.3, and SeaMonkey before 2.8 might allow remote attackers to obtain sensitive information from process memory via vectors that trigger an out-of-bounds read. (CVE-2012-0456) - Use-after-free vulnerability in the nsSMILTimeValueSpec::ConvertBetweenTimeContainer function in Mozilla Firefox before 3.6.28 and 4.x through 10.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.3, Thunderbird before 3.1.20 and 5.0 through 10.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.3, and SeaMonkey before 2.8 might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via an SVG animation. (CVE-2012-0457) - Mozilla Firefox before 3.6.28 and 4.x through 10.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.3, Thunderbird before 3.1.20 and 5.0 through 10.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.3, and SeaMonkey before 2.8 do not properly restrict setting the home page through the dragging of a URL to the home button, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to execute arbitrary JavaScript code with chrome privileges via a javascript: URL that is later interpreted in the about:sessionrestore context. (CVE-2012-0458) - The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) implementation in Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 10.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.3, Thunderbird 5.0 through 10.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.3, and SeaMonkey before 2.8 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via dynamic modification of a keyframe followed by access to the cssText of the keyframe. (CVE-2012-0459) - Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 10.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.3, Thunderbird 5.0 through 10.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.3, and SeaMonkey before 2.8 do not properly restrict write access to the window.fullScreen object, which allows remote attackers to spoof the user interface via a crafted web page. (CVE-2012-0460) - Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox before 3.6.28 and 4.x through 10.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.3, Thunderbird before 3.1.20 and 5.0 through 10.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.3, and SeaMonkey before 2.8 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors. (CVE-2012-0461) - Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 10.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.3, Thunderbird 5.0 through 10.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.3, and SeaMonkey before 2.8 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors.

    description USN-1400-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Firefox. This update provides the corresponding fixes for Thunderbird. Soroush Dalili discovered that Firefox did not adequately protect against dropping JavaScript links onto a frame. A remote attacker could, through cross-site scripting (XSS), exploit this to modify the contents or steal confidential data. (CVE-2012-0455) Atte Kettunen discovered a use-after-free vulnerability in Firefox's handling of SVG animations. An attacker could potentially exploit this to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking Firefox. (CVE-2012-0457) Atte Kettunen discovered an out of bounds read vulnerability in Firefox's handling of SVG Filters. An attacker could potentially exploit this to make data from the user's memory accessible to the page content. (CVE-2012-0456) Mike Brooks discovered that using carriage return line feed (CRLF) injection, one could introduce a new Content Security Policy (CSP) rule which allows for cross-site scripting (XSS) on sites with a separate header injection vulnerability. With cross-site scripting vulnerabilities, if a user were tricked into viewing a specially crafted page, a remote attacker could exploit this to modify the contents, or steal confidential data, within the same domain. (CVE-2012-0451) Mariusz Mlynski discovered that the Home button accepted JavaScript links to set the browser Home page. An attacker could use this vulnerability to get the script URL loaded in the privileged about:sessionrestore context. (CVE-2012-0458) Daniel Glazman discovered that the Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) implementation is vulnerable to crashing due to modification of a keyframe followed by access to the cssText of the keyframe. If the user were tricked into opening a specially crafted web page, an attacker could exploit this to cause a denial of service via application crash, or potentially execute code with the privileges of the user invoking Firefox. (CVE-2012-0459) Matt Brubeck discovered that Firefox did not properly restrict access to the window.fullScreen object.

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.

This could lead to a cross-site scripting attack if used in conjunction with a website that has a header injection flaw. (CVE-2012-0451) For technical details regarding these flaws, refer to the Mozilla security advisories for Firefox 10.0.3 ESR. You can find a link to the Mozilla advisories in the References section of this erratum. This update also fixes the following bugs : * When using the Traditional Chinese locale (zh-TW), a segmentation fault sometimes occurred when closing Firefox. (BZ#729632) * Inputting any text in the Web Console (Tools -> Web Developer -> Web Console) caused Firefox to crash. (BZ#784048) * The java-1.6.0-ibm-plugin and java-1.6.0-sun-plugin packages require the '/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/' directory on 32-bit systems, and the '/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/' directory on 64-bit systems. These directories are created by the xulrunner package; however, they were missing from the xulrunner package provided by the RHEA-2012:0327 update. Therefore, upgrading to RHEA-2012:0327 removed those directories, causing dependency errors when attempting to install the java-1.6.0-ibm-plugin or java-1.6.0-sun-plugin package. With this update, xulrunner once again creates the plugins directory. This issue did not affect users of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. (BZ#799042) All Firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain Firefox version 10.0.3 ESR, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

    description Updated firefox packages that fix multiple security issues and three bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 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. 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-2012-0461, CVE-2012-0462, CVE-2012-0464) Two flaws were found in the way Firefox parsed certain Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) image files. A web page containing a malicious SVG image file could cause an information leak, or cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2012-0456, CVE-2012-0457) A flaw could allow a malicious site to bypass intended restrictions, possibly leading to a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack if a user were tricked into dropping a 'javascript:' link onto a frame. (CVE-2012-0455) It was found that the home page could be set to a 'javascript:' link. If a user were tricked into setting such a home page by dragging a link to the home button, it could cause Firefox to repeatedly crash, eventually leading to arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2012-0458) A flaw was found in the way Firefox parsed certain web content containing 'cssText'. 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-2012-0459) It was found that by using the DOM fullscreen API, untrusted content could bypass the mozRequestFullscreen security protections. A web page containing malicious web content could exploit this API flaw to cause user interface spoofing. (CVE-2012-0460) A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled pages with multiple Content Security Policy (CSP) headers. This could lead to a cross-site scripting attack if used in conjunction with a website that has a header injection flaw. (CVE-2012-0451) For technical details regarding these flaws, refer to the Mozilla security advisories for Firefox 10.0.3 ESR. You can find a link to the Mozilla advisories in the References section of this erratum. This update also fixes the following bugs : * When using the Traditional Chinese locale (zh-TW), a segmentation fault sometimes occurred when closing Firefox. (BZ#729632) * Inputting any text in the Web Console (Tools -> Web Developer -> Web Console) caused Firefox to crash. (BZ#784048) * The java-1.6.0-ibm-plugin and java-1.6.0-sun-plugin packages require the '/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/' directory on 32-bit systems, and the '/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/' directory on 64-bit systems. These directories are created by the xulrunner package; however, they were missing from the xulrunner package provided by the RHEA-2012:0327 update. Therefore, upgrading to RHEA-2012:0327 removed those directories, causing dependency errors when attempting to install the java-1.6.0-ibm-plugin or java-1.6.0-sun-plugin package. With this update, xulrunner once again creates the plugins directory. This issue did not affect users of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. (BZ#799042) All Firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain Firefox version 10.0.3 ESR, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

  • NASL family Mandriva Local Security Checks
    NASL id MANDRIVA_MDVSA-2012-032.NASL
    description Security issues were identified and fixed in mozilla firefox and thunderbird : Security researchers Blair Strang and Scott Bell of Security Assessment found that when a parent window spawns and closes a child window that uses the file open dialog, a crash can be induced in shlwapi.dll on 32-bit Windows 7 systems. This crash may be potentially exploitable (CVE-2012-0454). Firefox prevents the dropping of javascript: links onto a frame to prevent malicious sites from tricking users into performing a cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks on themselves. Security researcher Soroush Dalili reported a way to bypass this protection (CVE-2012-0455). Security researcher Atte Kettunen from OUSPG found two issues with Firefox's handling of SVG using the Address Sanitizer tool. The first issue, critically rated, is a use-after-free in SVG animation that could potentially lead to arbitrary code execution. The second issue is rated moderate and is an out of bounds read in SVG Filters. This could potentially incorporate data from the user's memory, making it accessible to the page content (CVE-2012-0457, CVE-2012-0456). Security Researcher Mike Brooks of Sitewatch reported that if multiple Content Security Policy (CSP) headers are present on a page, they have an additive effect page policy. Using carriage return line feed (CRLF) injection, a new CSP rule can be introduced which allows for cross-site scripting (XSS) on sites with a separate header injection vulnerability (CVE-2012-0451). Security researcher Mariusz Mlynski reported that an attacker able to convince a potential victim to set a new home page by dragging a link to the home button can set that user's home page to a javascript: URL. Once this is done the attacker's page can cause repeated crashes of the browser, eventually getting the script URL loaded in the privileged about:sessionrestore context (CVE-2012-0458). Mozilla community member Daniel Glazman of Disruptive Innovations reported a crash when accessing a keyframe's cssText after dynamic modification. This crash may be potentially exploitable (CVE-2012-0459). Mozilla developer Matt Brubeck reported that window.fullScreen is writeable by untrusted content now that the DOM fullscreen API is enabled. Because window.fullScreen does not include mozRequestFullscreen's security protections, it could be used for UI spoofing. This code change makes window.fullScreen read only by untrusted content, forcing the use of the DOM fullscreen API in normal usage (CVE-2012-0460). 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-2012-0461, CVE-2012-0462, CVE-2012-0464). The mozilla firefox and thunderbird packages has been upgraded to the latest respective versions which is unaffected by these security flaws. Additionally the NSS and NSPR packages has been upgraded to the latest versions. The OpenJDK java plugin (icedtea-web) has been upgraded to the 1.1.5 version whish bas better support for firefox 10.x+. Update : Updated packages for 2010.2 is being provided, despite the Mandriva products lifetime policy dictates otherwise.

    description Mozilla Firefox was updated to 10.0.3 ESR to fix various bugs and security issues. The following security issues have been fixed : - 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. (MFSA 2012-19) In general these flaws cannot be exploited through email in the Thunderbird and SeaMonkey products because scripting is disabled, but are potentially a risk in browser or browser-like contexts in those products. References : Bob Clary reported two bugs that causes crashes that affected Firefox 3.6, Firefox ESR, and Firefox 10. (CVE-2012-0461) Christian Holler, Jesse Ruderman, Nils, Michael Bebenita, Dindog, and David Anderson reported memory safety problems and crashes that affect Firefox ESR and Firefox 10. (CVE-2012-0462) Jeff Walden reported a memory safety problem in the array.join function. This bug was independently reported by Vincenzo Iozzo via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative Pwn2Own contest. (CVE-2012-0464) Masayuki Nakano reported a memory safety problem that affected Mobile Firefox - CVE-2012-0463 - Mozilla developer Matt Brubeck reported that window.fullScreen is writeable by untrusted content now that the DOM fullscreen API is enabled. Because window.fullScreen does not include mozRequestFullscreen's security protections, it could be used for UI spoofing. This code change makes window.fullScreen read only by untrusted content, forcing the use of the DOM fullscreen API in normal usage. (MFSA 2012-18 / CVE-2012-0460) Firefox 3.6 and Thunderbird 3.1 are not affected by this vulnerability. - Mozilla community member Daniel Glazman of Disruptive Innovations reported a crash when accessing a keyframe's cssText after dynamic modification. This crash may be potentially exploitable. (MFSA 2012-17 / CVE-2012-0459) Firefox 3.6 and Thunderbird 3.1 are not affected by this vulnerability. - Security researcher Mariusz Mlynski reported that an attacker able to convince a potential victim to set a new home page by dragging a link to the 'home' button can set that user's home page to a javascript: URL. Once this is done the attacker's page can cause repeated crashes of the browser, eventually getting the script URL loaded in the privileged about:sessionrestore context. (MFSA 2012-16 / CVE-2012-0458) - Security Researcher Mike Brooks of Sitewatch reported that if multiple Content Security Policy (CSP) headers are present on a page, they have an additive effect page policy. Using carriage return line feed (CRLF) injection, a new CSP rule can be introduced which allows for cross-site scripting (XSS) on sites with a separate header injection vulnerability. (MFSA 2012-15 / CVE-2012-0451) Firefox 3.6 and Thunderbird 3.1 are not affected by this vulnerability. - Security researcher Atte Kettunen from OUSPG found two issues with Firefox's handling of SVG using the Address Sanitizer tool. The first issue, critically rated, is a use-after-free in SVG animation that could potentially lead to arbitrary code execution. The second issue is rated moderate and is an out of bounds read in SVG Filters. This could potentially incorporate data from the user's memory, making it accessible to the page content. (MFSA 2012-14 / CVE-2012-0457 / CVE-2012-0456) - Firefox prevents the dropping of javascript: links onto a frame to prevent malicious sites from tricking users into performing a cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks on themselves. Security researcher Soroush Dalili reported a way to bypass this protection. (MFSA 2012-13 / CVE-2012-0455) - Security researchers Blair Strang and Scott Bell of Security Assessment found that when a parent window spawns and closes a child window that uses the file open dialog, a crash can be induced in shlwapi.dll on 32-bit Windows 7 systems. This crash may be potentially exploitable. (MFSA 2012-12 / CVE-2012-0454) Firefox 3.6 and Thunderbird 3.1 are not affected by this vulnerability. - Reworked the KDE4 integration. (bnc#745017)

    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201301-01 (Mozilla Products: Multiple vulnerabilities) Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Mozilla Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, NSS, GNU IceCat, and XULRunner. 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 USN-1400-3 fixed vulnerabilities in Thunderbird. The new Thunderbird version caused a regression in IMAP connections and mail filtering. This update fixes the problem. Soroush Dalili discovered that Firefox did not adequately protect against dropping JavaScript links onto a frame. A remote attacker could, through cross-site scripting (XSS), exploit this to modify the contents or steal confidential data. (CVE-2012-0455) Atte Kettunen discovered a use-after-free vulnerability in Firefox's handling of SVG animations. An attacker could potentially exploit this to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking Firefox. (CVE-2012-0457) Atte Kettunen discovered an out of bounds read vulnerability in Firefox's handling of SVG Filters. An attacker could potentially exploit this to make data from the user's memory accessible to the page content. (CVE-2012-0456) Mike Brooks discovered that using carriage return line feed (CRLF) injection, one could introduce a new Content Security Policy (CSP) rule which allows for cross-site scripting (XSS) on sites with a separate header injection vulnerability. With cross-site scripting vulnerabilities, if a user were tricked into viewing a specially crafted page, a remote attacker could exploit this to modify the contents, or steal confidential data, within the same domain. (CVE-2012-0451) Mariusz Mlynski discovered that the Home button accepted JavaScript links to set the browser Home page. An attacker could use this vulnerability to get the script URL loaded in the privileged about:sessionrestore context. (CVE-2012-0458) Daniel Glazman discovered that the Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) implementation is vulnerable to crashing due to modification of a keyframe followed by access to the cssText of the keyframe. If the user were tricked into opening a specially crafted web page, an attacker could exploit this to cause a denial of service via application crash, or potentially execute code with the privileges of the user invoking Firefox. (CVE-2012-0459) Matt Brubeck discovered that Firefox did not properly restrict access to the window.fullScreen object. If the user were tricked into opening a specially crafted web page, an attacker could potentially use this vulnerability to spoof the user interface. (CVE-2012-0460) Bob Clary, Christian Holler, Jesse Ruderman, Michael Bebenita, David Anderson, Jeff Walden, Vincenzo Iozzo, and Willem Pinckaers discovered memory safety issues affecting Firefox. If the user were tricked into opening a specially crafted page, an attacker could exploit these to cause a denial of service via application crash, or potentially execute code with the privileges of the user invoking Firefox. (CVE-2012-0461, CVE-2012-0462, CVE-2012-0464). 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.

    description An updated thunderbird package that fixes multiple security issues is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 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 Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client. Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed content. Malicious content could cause Thunderbird to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2012-0461, CVE-2012-0462, CVE-2012-0464) Two flaws were found in the way Thunderbird parsed certain Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) image files. An HTML mail message containing a malicious SVG image file could cause an information leak, or cause Thunderbird to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2012-0456, CVE-2012-0457) A flaw could allow malicious content to bypass intended restrictions, possibly leading to a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack if a user were tricked into dropping a 'javascript:' link onto a frame. (CVE-2012-0455) It was found that the home page could be set to a 'javascript:' link. If a user were tricked into setting such a home page by dragging a link to the home button, it could cause Firefox to repeatedly crash, eventually leading to arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running Firefox. A similar flaw was found and fixed in Thunderbird. (CVE-2012-0458) A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird parsed certain, remote content containing 'cssText'. Malicious, remote content could cause Thunderbird to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2012-0459) It was found that by using the DOM fullscreen API, untrusted content could bypass the mozRequestFullscreen security protections. Malicious content could exploit this API flaw to cause user interface spoofing. (CVE-2012-0460) A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird handled content with multiple Content Security Policy (CSP) headers. This could lead to a cross-site scripting attack if used in conjunction with a website that has a header injection flaw. (CVE-2012-0451) Note: All issues except CVE-2012-0456 and CVE-2012-0457 cannot be exploited by a specially crafted HTML mail message as JavaScript is disabled by default for mail messages. It could be exploited another way in Thunderbird, for example, when viewing the full remote content of an RSS feed. All Thunderbird users should upgrade to this updated package, which contains Thunderbird version 10.0.3 ESR, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Thunderbird must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
