ID CVE-2012-1961
Summary Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 13.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, Thunderbird 5.0 through 13.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, and SeaMonkey before 2.11 do not properly handle duplicate values in X-Frame-Options headers, which makes it easier for remote attackers to conduct clickjacking attacks via a FRAME element referencing a web site that produces these duplicate values.

Impact:
Exploitability:
CWE CWE-20
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.
  • Server Side Include (SSI) Injection
    An attacker can use Server Side Include (SSI) Injection to send code to a web application that then gets executed by the web server. Doing so enables the attacker to achieve similar results to Cross Site Scripting, viz., arbitrary code execution and information disclosure, albeit on a more limited scale, since the SSI directives are nowhere near as powerful as a full-fledged scripting language. Nonetheless, the attacker can conveniently gain access to sensitive files, such as password files, and execute shell commands.
  • Cross Zone Scripting
    An attacker is able to cause a victim to load content into their web-browser that bypasses security zone controls and gain access to increased privileges to execute scripting code or other web objects such as unsigned ActiveX controls or applets. This is a privilege elevation attack targeted at zone-based web-browser security. In a zone-based model, pages belong to one of a set of zones corresponding to the level of privilege assigned to that page. Pages in an untrusted zone would have a lesser level of access to the system and/or be restricted in the types of executable content it was allowed to invoke. In a cross-zone scripting attack, a page that should be assigned to a less privileged zone is granted the privileges of a more trusted zone. This can be accomplished by exploiting bugs in the browser, exploiting incorrect configuration in the zone controls, through a cross-site scripting attack that causes the attackers' content to be treated as coming from a more trusted page, or by leveraging some piece of system functionality that is accessible from both the trusted and less trusted zone. This attack differs from "Restful Privilege Escalation" in that the latter correlates to the inadequate securing of RESTful access methods (such as HTTP DELETE) on the server, while cross-zone scripting attacks the concept of security zones as implemented by a browser.
  • 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.
  • Command Line Execution through SQL Injection
    An attacker uses standard SQL injection methods to inject data into the command line for execution. This could be done directly through misuse of directives such as MSSQL_xp_cmdshell or indirectly through injection of data into the database that would be interpreted as shell commands. Sometime later, an unscrupulous backend application (or could be part of the functionality of the same application) fetches the injected data stored in the database and uses this data as command line arguments without performing proper validation. The malicious data escapes that data plane by spawning new commands to be executed on the host.
  • Object Relational Mapping Injection
    An attacker leverages a weakness present in the database access layer code generated with an Object Relational Mapping (ORM) tool or a weakness in the way that a developer used a persistence framework to inject his or her own SQL commands to be executed against the underlying database. The attack here is similar to plain SQL injection, except that the application does not use JDBC to directly talk to the database, but instead it uses a data access layer generated by an ORM tool or framework (e.g. Hibernate). While most of the time code generated by an ORM tool contains safe access methods that are immune to SQL injection, sometimes either due to some weakness in the generated code or due to the fact that the developer failed to use the generated access methods properly, SQL injection is still possible.
  • SQL Injection through SOAP Parameter Tampering
    An attacker modifies the parameters of the SOAP message that is sent from the service consumer to the service provider to initiate a SQL injection attack. On the service provider side, the SOAP message is parsed and parameters are not properly validated before being used to access a database in a way that does not use parameter binding, thus enabling the attacker to control the structure of the executed SQL query. This pattern describes a SQL injection attack with the delivery mechanism being a SOAP message.
  • Subverting Environment Variable Values
    The attacker directly or indirectly modifies environment variables used by or controlling the target software. The attacker's goal is to cause the target software to deviate from its expected operation in a manner that benefits the attacker.
  • Format String Injection
    An attacker includes formatting characters in a string input field on the target application. Most applications assume that users will provide static text and may respond unpredictably to the presence of formatting character. For example, in certain functions of the C programming languages such as printf, the formatting character %s will print the contents of a memory location expecting this location to identify a string and the formatting character %n prints the number of DWORD written in the memory. An attacker can use this to read or write to memory locations or files, or simply to manipulate the value of the resulting text in unexpected ways. Reading or writing memory may result in program crashes and writing memory could result in the execution of arbitrary code if the attacker can write to the program stack.
  • LDAP Injection
    An attacker manipulates or crafts an LDAP query for the purpose of undermining the security of the target. Some applications use user input to create LDAP queries that are processed by an LDAP server. For example, a user might provide their username during authentication and the username might be inserted in an LDAP query during the authentication process. An attacker could use this input to inject additional commands into an LDAP query that could disclose sensitive information. For example, entering a * in the aforementioned query might return information about all users on the system. This attack is very similar to an SQL injection attack in that it manipulates a query to gather additional information or coerce a particular return value.
  • Relative Path Traversal
    An attacker exploits a weakness in input validation on the target by supplying a specially constructed path utilizing dot and slash characters for the purpose of obtaining access to arbitrary files or resources. An attacker modifies a known path on the target in order to reach material that is not available through intended channels. These attacks normally involve adding additional path separators (/ or \) and/or dots (.), or encodings thereof, in various combinations in order to reach parent directories or entirely separate trees of the target's directory structure.
  • 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.
  • Variable Manipulation
    An attacker manipulates variables used by an application to perform a variety of possible attacks. This can either be performed through the manipulation of function call parameters or by manipulating external variables, such as environment variables, that are used by an application. Changing variable values is usually undertaken as part of another attack; for example, a path traversal (inserting relative path modifiers) or buffer overflow (enlarging a variable value beyond an application's ability to store it).
  • 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.
  • Flash Injection
    An attacker tricks a victim to execute malicious flash content that executes commands or makes flash calls specified by the attacker. One example of this attack is cross-site flashing, an attacker controlled parameter to a reference call loads from content specified by the attacker.
  • 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.
  • Exploiting Trust in Client (aka Make the Client Invisible)
    An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities in client/server communication channel authentication and data integrity. It leverages the implicit trust a server places in the client, or more importantly, that which the server believes is the client. An attacker executes this type of attack by placing themselves in the communication channel between client and server such that communication directly to the server is possible where the server believes it is communicating only with a valid client. There are numerous variations of this type of attack.
  • XML Nested Payloads
    Applications often need to transform data in and out of the XML format by using an XML parser. It may be possible for an attacker to inject data that may have an adverse effect on the XML parser when it is being processed. By nesting XML data and causing this data to be continuously self-referential, an attacker can cause the XML parser to consume more resources while processing, causing excessive memory consumption and CPU utilization. An attacker's goal is to leverage parser failure to his or her advantage. In most cases this type of an attack will result in a denial of service due to an application becoming unstable, freezing, or crash. However it may be possible to cause a crash resulting in arbitrary code execution, leading to a jump from the data plane to the control plane [R.230.1].
  • XML Oversized Payloads
    Applications often need to transform data in and out of the XML format by using an XML parser. It may be possible for an attacker to inject data that may have an adverse effect on the XML parser when it is being processed. By supplying oversized payloads in input vectors that will be processed by the XML parser, an attacker can cause the XML parser to consume more resources while processing, causing excessive memory consumption and CPU utilization, and potentially cause execution of arbitrary code. An attacker's goal is to leverage parser failure to his or her advantage. In many cases this type of an attack will result in a denial of service due to an application becoming unstable, freezing, or crash. However it is possible to cause a crash resulting in arbitrary code execution, leading to a jump from the data plane to the control plane [R.231.1].
  • 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).
  • 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.
  • XML Injection
    An attacker utilizes crafted XML user-controllable input to probe, attack, and inject data into the XML database, using techniques similar to SQL injection. The user-controllable input can allow for unauthorized viewing of data, bypassing authentication or the front-end application for direct XML database access, and possibly altering database information.
  • Environment Variable Manipulation
    An attacker manipulates environment variables used by an application to perform a variety of possible attacks. Changing variable values is usually undertaken as part of another attack; for example, a path traversal (inserting relative path modifiers) or buffer overflow (enlarging a variable value beyond an application's ability to store it).
  • Global variable manipulation
    An attacker manipulates global variables used by an application to perform a variety of possible attacks. Changing variable values is usually undertaken as part of another attack; for example, a path traversal (inserting relative path modifiers) or buffer overflow (enlarging a variable value beyond an application's ability to store it).
  • Leverage Alternate Encoding
    This attack leverages the possibility to encode potentially harmful input and submit it to applications not expecting or effective at validating this encoding standard making input filtering difficult.
  • Fuzzing
    Fuzzing is a software testing method that feeds randomly constructed input to the system and looks for an indication that a failure in response to that input has occurred. Fuzzing treats the system as a black box and is totally free from any preconceptions or assumptions about the system. An attacker can leverage fuzzing to try to identify weaknesses in the system. For instance fuzzing can help an attacker discover certain assumptions made in the system about user input. Fuzzing gives an attacker a quick way of potentially uncovering some of these assumptions without really knowing anything about the internals of the system. These assumptions can then be turned against the system by specially crafting user input that may allow an attacker to achieve his goals.
  • Using Leading 'Ghost' Character Sequences to Bypass Input Filters
    An attacker intentionally introduces leading characters that enable getting the input past the filters. The API that is being targeted, ignores the leading "ghost" characters, and therefore processes the attackers' input. This occurs when the targeted API will accept input data in several syntactic forms and interpret it in the equivalent semantic way, while the filter does not take into account the full spectrum of the syntactic forms acceptable to the targeted API. Some APIs will strip certain leading characters from a string of parameters. Perhaps these characters are considered redundant, and for this reason they are removed. Another possibility is the parser logic at the beginning of analysis is specialized in some way that causes some characters to be removed. The attacker can specify multiple types of alternative encodings at the beginning of a string as a set of probes. One commonly used possibility involves adding ghost characters--extra characters that don't affect the validity of the request at the API layer. If the attacker has access to the API libraries being targeted, certain attack ideas can be tested directly in advance. Once alternative ghost encodings emerge through testing, the attacker can move from lab-based API testing to testing real-world service implementations.
  • Accessing/Intercepting/Modifying HTTP Cookies
    This attack relies on the use of HTTP Cookies to store credentials, state information and other critical data on client systems. The first form of this attack involves accessing HTTP Cookies to mine for potentially sensitive data contained therein. The second form of this attack involves intercepting this data as it is transmitted from client to server. This intercepted information is then used by the attacker to impersonate the remote user/session. The third form is when the cookie's content is modified by the attacker before it is sent back to the server. Here the attacker seeks to convince the target server to operate on this falsified information.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Exploiting Multiple Input Interpretation Layers
    An attacker supplies the target software with input data that contains sequences of special characters designed to bypass input validation logic. This exploit relies on the target making multiples passes over the input data and processing a "layer" of special characters with each pass. In this manner, the attacker can disguise input that would otherwise be rejected as invalid by concealing it with layers of special/escape characters that are stripped off by subsequent processing steps. The goal is to first discover cases where the input validation layer executes before one or more parsing layers. That is, user input may go through the following logic in an application: In such cases, the attacker will need to provide input that will pass through the input validator, but after passing through parser2, will be converted into something that the input validator was supposed to stop.
  • 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.
  • Signature Spoof
    An attacker generates a message or datablock that causes the recipient to believe that the message or datablock was generated and cryptographically signed by an authoritative or reputable source, misleading a victim or victim operating system into performing malicious actions.
  • XML Client-Side Attack
    Client applications such as web browsers that process HTML data often need to transform data in and out of the XML format by using an XML parser. It may be possible for an attacker to inject data that may have an adverse effect on the XML parser when it is being processed. These adverse effects may include the parser crashing, consuming too much of a resource, executing too slowly, executing code supplied by an attacker, allowing usage of unintended system functionality, etc. An attacker's goal is to leverage parser failure to his or her advantage. In some cases it may be possible to jump from the data plane to the control plane via bad data being passed to an XML parser. [R.484.1]
  • Embedding NULL Bytes
    An attacker embeds one or more null bytes in input to the target software. This attack relies on the usage of a null-valued byte as a string terminator in many environments. The goal is for certain components of the target software to stop processing the input when it encounters the null byte(s).
  • Postfix, Null Terminate, and Backslash
    If a string is passed through a filter of some kind, then a terminal NULL may not be valid. Using alternate representation of NULL allows an attacker to embed the NULL mid-string while postfixing the proper data so that the filter is avoided. One example is a filter that looks for a trailing slash character. If a string insertion is possible, but the slash must exist, an alternate encoding of NULL in mid-string may be used.
  • 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.
  • Using Slashes and URL Encoding Combined to Bypass Validation Logic
    This attack targets the encoding of the URL combined with the encoding of the slash characters. An attacker can take advantage of the multiple way of encoding an URL and abuse the interpretation of the URL. An URL may contain special character that need special syntax handling in order to be interpreted. Special characters are represented using a percentage character followed by two digits representing the octet code of the original character (%HEX-CODE). For instance US-ASCII space character would be represented with %20. This is often referred as escaped ending or percent-encoding. Since the server decodes the URL from the requests, it may restrict the access to some URL paths by validating and filtering out the URL requests it received. An attacker will try to craft an URL with a sequence of special characters which once interpreted by the server will be equivalent to a forbidden URL. It can be difficult to protect against this attack since the URL can contain other format of encoding such as UTF-8 encoding, Unicode-encoding, etc.
  • SQL Injection
    This attack exploits target software that constructs SQL statements based on user input. An attacker crafts input strings so that when the target software constructs SQL statements based on the input, the resulting SQL statement performs actions other than those the application intended. SQL Injection results from failure of the application to appropriately validate input. When specially crafted user-controlled input consisting of SQL syntax is used without proper validation as part of SQL queries, it is possible to glean information from the database in ways not envisaged during application design. Depending upon the database and the design of the application, it may also be possible to leverage injection to have the database execute system-related commands of the attackers' choice. SQL Injection enables an attacker to talk directly to the database, thus bypassing the application completely. Successful injection can cause information disclosure as well as ability to add or modify data in the database. In order to successfully inject SQL and retrieve information from a database, an attacker:
  • String Format Overflow in syslog()
    This attack targets the format string vulnerabilities in the syslog() function. An attacker would typically inject malicious input in the format string parameter of the syslog function. This is a common problem, and many public vulnerabilities and associated exploits have been posted.
  • Blind SQL Injection
    Blind SQL Injection results from an insufficient mitigation for SQL Injection. Although suppressing database error messages are considered best practice, the suppression alone is not sufficient to prevent SQL Injection. Blind SQL Injection is a form of SQL Injection that overcomes the lack of error messages. Without the error messages that facilitate SQL Injection, the attacker constructs input strings that probe the target through simple Boolean SQL expressions. The attacker can determine if the syntax and structure of the injection was successful based on whether the query was executed or not. Applied iteratively, the attacker determines how and where the target is vulnerable to SQL Injection. For example, an attacker may try entering something like "username' AND 1=1; --" in an input field. If the result is the same as when the attacker entered "username" in the field, then the attacker knows that the application is vulnerable to SQL Injection. The attacker can then ask yes/no questions from the database server to extract information from it. For example, the attacker can extract table names from a database using the following types of queries: If the above query executes properly, then the attacker knows that the first character in a table name in the database is a letter between m and z. If it doesn't, then the attacker knows that the character must be between a and l (assuming of course that table names only contain alphabetic characters). By performing a binary search on all character positions, the attacker can determine all table names in the database. Subsequently, the attacker may execute an actual attack and send something like:
  • Using Unicode Encoding to Bypass Validation Logic
    An attacker may provide a Unicode string to a system component that is not Unicode aware and use that to circumvent the filter or cause the classifying mechanism to fail to properly understanding the request. That may allow the attacker to slip malicious data past the content filter and/or possibly cause the application to route the request incorrectly.
  • URL Encoding
    This attack targets the encoding of the URL. An attacker can take advantage of the multiple way of encoding an URL and abuse the interpretation of the URL. An URL may contain special character that need special syntax handling in order to be interpreted. Special characters are represented using a percentage character followed by two digits representing the octet code of the original character (%HEX-CODE). For instance US-ASCII space character would be represented with %20. This is often referred as escaped ending or percent-encoding. Since the server decodes the URL from the requests, it may restrict the access to some URL paths by validating and filtering out the URL requests it received. An attacker will try to craft an URL with a sequence of special characters which once interpreted by the server will be equivalent to a forbidden URL. It can be difficult to protect against this attack since the URL can contain other format of encoding such as UTF-8 encoding, Unicode-encoding, etc. The attacker could also subvert the meaning of the URL string request by encoding the data being sent to the server through a GET request. For instance an attacker may subvert the meaning of parameters used in a SQL request and sent through the URL string (See Example section).
  • User-Controlled Filename
    An attack of this type involves an attacker inserting malicious characters (such as a XSS redirection) into a filename, directly or indirectly that is then used by the target software to generate HTML text or other potentially executable content. Many websites rely on user-generated content and dynamically build resources like files, filenames, and URL links directly from user supplied data. In this attack pattern, the attacker uploads code that can execute in the client browser and/or redirect the client browser to a site that the attacker owns. All XSS attack payload variants can be used to pass and exploit these vulnerabilities.
  • Using Escaped Slashes in Alternate Encoding
    This attack targets the use of the backslash in alternate encoding. An attacker can provide a backslash as a leading character and causes a parser to believe that the next character is special. This is called an escape. By using that trick, the attacker tries to exploit alternate ways to encode the same character which leads to filter problems and opens avenues to attack.
  • Using Slashes in Alternate Encoding
    This attack targets the encoding of the Slash characters. An attacker would try to exploit common filtering problems related to the use of the slashes characters to gain access to resources on the target host. Directory-driven systems, such as file systems and databases, typically use the slash character to indicate traversal between directories or other container components. For murky historical reasons, PCs (and, as a result, Microsoft OSs) choose to use a backslash, whereas the UNIX world typically makes use of the forward slash. The schizophrenic result is that many MS-based systems are required to understand both forms of the slash. This gives the attacker many opportunities to discover and abuse a number of common filtering problems. The goal of this pattern is to discover server software that only applies filters to one version, but not the other.
  • 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.
  • Using UTF-8 Encoding to Bypass Validation Logic
    This attack is a specific variation on leveraging alternate encodings to bypass validation logic. This attack leverages the possibility to encode potentially harmful input in UTF-8 and submit it to applications not expecting or effective at validating this encoding standard making input filtering difficult. UTF-8 (8-bit UCS/Unicode Transformation Format) is a variable-length character encoding for Unicode. Legal UTF-8 characters are one to four bytes long. However, early version of the UTF-8 specification got some entries wrong (in some cases it permitted overlong characters). UTF-8 encoders are supposed to use the "shortest possible" encoding, but naive decoders may accept encodings that are longer than necessary. According to the RFC 3629, a particularly subtle form of this attack can be carried out against a parser which performs security-critical validity checks against the UTF-8 encoded form of its input, but interprets certain illegal octet sequences as characters.
  • Web Logs Tampering
    Web Logs Tampering attacks involve an attacker injecting, deleting or otherwise tampering with the contents of web logs typically for the purposes of masking other malicious behavior. Additionally, writing malicious data to log files may target jobs, filters, reports, and other agents that process the logs in an asynchronous attack pattern. This pattern of attack is similar to "Log Injection-Tampering-Forging" except that in this case, the attack is targeting the logs of the web server and not the application.
  • XPath Injection
    An attacker can craft special user-controllable input consisting of XPath expressions to inject the XML database and bypass authentication or glean information that he normally would not be able to. XPath Injection enables an attacker to talk directly to the XML database, thus bypassing the application completely. XPath Injection results from the failure of an application to properly sanitize input used as part of dynamic XPath expressions used to query an XML database. In order to successfully inject XML and retrieve information from a database, an attacker:
  • 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.
  • OS Command Injection
    In this type of an attack, an adversary injects operating system commands into existing application functions. An application that uses untrusted input to build command strings is vulnerable. An adversary can leverage OS command injection in an application to elevate privileges, execute arbitrary commands and compromise the underlying operating system.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • XML Parser Attack
    Applications often need to transform data in and out of the XML format by using an XML parser. It may be possible for an attacker to inject data that may have an adverse effect on the XML parser when it is being processed. These adverse effects may include the parser crashing, consuming too much of a resource, executing too slowly, executing code supplied by an attacker, allowing usage of unintended system functionality, etc. An attacker's goal is to leverage parser failure to his or her advantage. In some cases it may be possible to jump from the data plane to the control plane via bad data being passed to an XML parser. [R.99.1]

    description 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-2012-1948, CVE-2012-1951, CVE-2012-1952, CVE-2012-1953, CVE-2012-1954, CVE-2012-1958, CVE-2012-1962, CVE-2012-1967) Malicious content could bypass same-compartment security wrappers (SCSW) and execute arbitrary code with chrome privileges. (CVE-2012-1959) A flaw in the way Thunderbird called history.forward and history.back could allow an attacker to conceal a malicious URL, possibly tricking a user into believing they are viewing trusted content. (CVE-2012-1955) A flaw in a parser utility class used by Thunderbird to parse feeds (such as RSS) could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary JavaScript with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. This issue could have affected other Thunderbird components or add-ons that assume the class returns sanitized input. (CVE-2012-1957) A flaw in the way Thunderbird handled X-Frame-Options headers could allow malicious content to perform a clickjacking attack. (CVE-2012-1961) A flaw in the way Content Security Policy (CSP) reports were generated by Thunderbird could allow malicious content to steal a victim's OAuth 2.0 access tokens and OpenID credentials. (CVE-2012-1963) A flaw in the way Thunderbird handled certificate warnings could allow a man-in-the-middle attacker to create a crafted warning, possibly tricking a user into accepting an arbitrary certificate as trusted. (CVE-2012-1964) A previous nss update introduced a mitigation for the CVE-2011-3389 flaw. For compatibility reasons, it remains disabled by default in the nss packages. This update makes Thunderbird enable the mitigation by default. It can be disabled by setting the NSS_SSL_CBC_RANDOM_IV environment variable to 0 before launching Thunderbird. Note: None of the issues in this advisory can be exploited by a specially crafted HTML mail message as JavaScript is disabled by default for mail messages. They 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 10.0.6 ESR, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Thunderbird must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

    description MozillaFirefox was updated to 14.0.1 to fix various bugs and security issues. Following security issues were fixed: MFSA 2012-42: 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-2012-1949: Brian Smith, Gary Kwong, Christian Holler, Jesse Ruderman, Christoph Diehl, Chris Jones, Brad Lassey, and Kyle Huey reported memory safety problems and crashes that affect Firefox 13. CVE-2012-1948: Benoit Jacob, Jesse Ruderman, Christian Holler, and Bill McCloskey reported memory safety problems and crashes that affect Firefox ESR 10 and Firefox 13. MFSA 2012-43 / CVE-2012-1950: Security researcher Mario Gomes andresearch firm Code Audit Labs reported a mechanism to short-circuit page loads through drag and drop to the addressbar by canceling the page load. This causes the address of the previously site entered to be displayed in the addressbar instead of the currently loaded page. This could lead to potential phishing attacks on users. MFSA 2012-44 Google security researcher Abhishek Arya used the Address Sanitizer tool to uncover four issues: two use-after-free problems, one out of bounds read bug, and a bad cast. The first use-after-free problem is caused when an array of nsSMILTimeValueSpec objects is destroyed but attempts are made to call into objects in this array later. The second use-after-free problem is in nsDocument::AdoptNode when it adopts into an empty document and then adopts into another document, emptying the first one. The heap buffer overflow is in ElementAnimations when data is read off of end of an array and then pointers are dereferenced. The bad cast happens when nsTableFrame::InsertFrames is called with frames in aFrameList that are a mix of row group frames and column group frames. AppendFrames is not able to handle this mix. All four of these issues are potentially exploitable. CVE-2012-1951: Heap-use-after-free in nsSMILTimeValueSpec::IsEventBased CVE-2012-1954: Heap-use-after-free in nsDocument::AdoptNode CVE-2012-1953: Out of bounds read in ElementAnimations::EnsureStyleRuleFor CVE-2012-1952: Bad cast in nsTableFrame::InsertFrames MFSA 2012-45 / CVE-2012-1955: Security researcher Mariusz Mlynski reported an issue with spoofing of the location property. In this issue, calls to history.forward and history.back are used to navigate to a site while displaying the previous site in the addressbar but changing the baseURI to the newer site. This can be used for phishing by allowing the user input form or other data on the newer, attacking, site while appearing to be on the older, displayed site. MFSA 2012-46 / CVE-2012-1966: Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack through the context menu using a data: URL. In this issue, context menu functionality ('View Image', 'Show only this frame', and 'View background image') are disallowed in a javascript: URL but allowed in a data: URL, allowing for XSS. This can lead to arbitrary code execution. MFSA 2012-47 / CVE-2012-1957: Security researcher Mario Heiderich reported that JavaScript could be executed in the HTML feed-view using tag within the RSS . This problem is due to tags not being filtered out during parsing and can lead to a potential cross-site scripting (XSS) attack. The flaw existed in a parser utility class and could affect other parts of the browser or add-ons which rely on that class to sanitize untrusted input. MFSA 2012-48 / CVE-2012-1958: Security researcher Arthur Gerkis used the Address Sanitizer tool to find a use-after-free in nsGlobalWindow::PageHidden when mFocusedContent is released and oldFocusedContent is used afterwards. This use-after-free could possibly allow for remote code execution. MFSA 2012-49 / CVE-2012-1959: Mozilla developer Bobby Holley found that same-compartment security wrappers (SCSW) can be bypassed by passing them to another compartment. Cross-compartment wrappers often do not go through SCSW, but have a filtering policy built into them. When an object is wrapped cross-compartment, the SCSW is stripped off and, when the object is read read back, it is not known that SCSW was previously present, resulting in a bypassing of SCSW. This could result in untrusted content having access to the XBL that implements browser functionality. MFSA 2012-50 / CVE-2012-1960: Google developer Tony Payne reported an out of bounds (OOB) read in QCMS, Mozilla’s color management library. With a carefully crafted color profile portions of a user's memory could be incorporated into a transformed image and possibly deciphered. MFSA 2012-51 / CVE-2012-1961: Bugzilla developer Frédéric Buclin reported that the 'X-Frame-Options header is ignored when the value is duplicated, for example X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN, SAMEORIGIN. This duplication occurs for unknown reasons on some websites and when it occurs results in Mozilla browsers not being protected against possible clickjacking attacks on those pages. MFSA 2012-52 / CVE-2012-1962: Security researcher Bill Keese reported a memory corruption. This is caused by JSDependentString::undepend changing a dependent string into a fixed string when there are additional dependent strings relying on the same base. When the undepend occurs during conversion, the base data is freed, leaving other dependent strings with dangling pointers. This can lead to a potentially exploitable crash. MFSA 2012-53 / CVE-2012-1963: Security researcher Karthikeyan Bhargavan of Prosecco at INRIA reported Content Security Policy (CSP) 1.0 implementation errors. CSP violation reports generated by Firefox and sent to the 'report-uri' location include sensitive data within the 'blocked-uri' parameter. These include fragment components and query strings even if the 'blocked-uri' parameter has a different origin than the protected resource. This can be used to retrieve a user's OAuth 2.0 access tokens and OpenID credentials by malicious sites. MFSA 2012-54 / CVE-2012-1964: Security Researcher Matt McCutchen reported that a clickjacking attack using the certificate warning page. A man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacker can use an iframe to display its own certificate error warning page (about:certerror) with the 'Add Exception' button of a real warning page from a malicious site. This can mislead users to adding a certificate exception for a different site than the perceived one. This can lead to compromised communications with the user perceived site through the MITM attack once the certificate exception has been added. MFSA 2012-55 / CVE-2012-1965: Security researchers Mario Gomes and Soroush Dalili reported that since Mozilla allows the pseudo-protocol feed: to prefix any valid URL, it is possible to construct feed:javascript: URLs that will execute scripts in some contexts. On some sites it may be possible to use this to evade output filtering that would otherwise strip javascript: URLs and thus contribute to cross-site scripting (XSS) problems on these sites. MFSA 2012-56 / CVE-2012-1967: Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported a arbitrary code execution attack using a javascript: URL. The Gecko engine features a JavaScript sandbox utility that allows the browser or add-ons to safely execute script in the context of a web page. In certain cases, javascript: URLs are executed in such a sandbox with insufficient context that can allow those scripts to escape from the sandbox and run with elevated privilege. This can lead to arbitrary code execution.

    description Mozilla XULRunner was updated to 14.0.1, fixing bugs and security issues : Following security issues were fixed: MFSA 2012-42: 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-2012-1949: Brian Smith, Gary Kwong, Christian Holler, Jesse Ruderman, Christoph Diehl, Chris Jones, Brad Lassey, and Kyle Huey reported memory safety problems and crashes that affect Firefox 13. CVE-2012-1948: Benoit Jacob, Jesse Ruderman, Christian Holler, and Bill McCloskey reported memory safety problems and crashes that affect Firefox ESR 10 and Firefox 13. MFSA 2012-43 / CVE-2012-1950: Security researcher Mario Gomes andresearch firm Code Audit Labs reported a mechanism to short-circuit page loads through drag and drop to the addressbar by canceling the page load. This causes the address of the previously site entered to be displayed in the addressbar instead of the currently loaded page. This could lead to potential phishing attacks on users. MFSA 2012-44 Google security researcher Abhishek Arya used the Address Sanitizer tool to uncover four issues: two use-after-free problems, one out of bounds read bug, and a bad cast. The first use-after-free problem is caused when an array of nsSMILTimeValueSpec objects is destroyed but attempts are made to call into objects in this array later. The second use-after-free problem is in nsDocument::AdoptNode when it adopts into an empty document and then adopts into another document, emptying the first one. The heap buffer overflow is in ElementAnimations when data is read off of end of an array and then pointers are dereferenced. The bad cast happens when nsTableFrame::InsertFrames is called with frames in aFrameList that are a mix of row group frames and column group frames. AppendFrames is not able to handle this mix. All four of these issues are potentially exploitable. CVE-2012-1951: Heap-use-after-free in nsSMILTimeValueSpec::IsEventBased CVE-2012-1954: Heap-use-after-free in nsDocument::AdoptNode CVE-2012-1953: Out of bounds read in ElementAnimations::EnsureStyleRuleFor CVE-2012-1952: Bad cast in nsTableFrame::InsertFrames MFSA 2012-45 / CVE-2012-1955: Security researcher Mariusz Mlynski reported an issue with spoofing of the location property. In this issue, calls to history.forward and history.back are used to navigate to a site while displaying the previous site in the addressbar but changing the baseURI to the newer site. This can be used for phishing by allowing the user input form or other data on the newer, attacking, site while appearing to be on the older, displayed site. MFSA 2012-46 / CVE-2012-1966: Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack through the context menu using a data: URL. In this issue, context menu functionality ('View Image', 'Show only this frame', and 'View background image') are disallowed in a javascript: URL but allowed in a data: URL, allowing for XSS. This can lead to arbitrary code execution. MFSA 2012-47 / CVE-2012-1957: Security researcher Mario Heiderich reported that JavaScript could be executed in the HTML feed-view using tag within the RSS . This problem is due to tags not being filtered out during parsing and can lead to a potential cross-site scripting (XSS) attack. The flaw existed in a parser utility class and could affect other parts of the browser or add-ons which rely on that class to sanitize untrusted input. MFSA 2012-48 / CVE-2012-1958: Security researcher Arthur Gerkis used the Address Sanitizer tool to find a use-after-free in nsGlobalWindow::PageHidden when mFocusedContent is released and oldFocusedContent is used afterwards. This use-after-free could possibly allow for remote code execution. MFSA 2012-49 / CVE-2012-1959: Mozilla developer Bobby Holley found that same-compartment security wrappers (SCSW) can be bypassed by passing them to another compartment. Cross-compartment wrappers often do not go through SCSW, but have a filtering policy built into them. When an object is wrapped cross-compartment, the SCSW is stripped off and, when the object is read read back, it is not known that SCSW was previously present, resulting in a bypassing of SCSW. This could result in untrusted content having access to the XBL that implements browser functionality. MFSA 2012-50 / CVE-2012-1960: Google developer Tony Payne reported an out of bounds (OOB) read in QCMS, Mozilla’s color management library. With a carefully crafted color profile portions of a user's memory could be incorporated into a transformed image and possibly deciphered. MFSA 2012-51 / CVE-2012-1961: Bugzilla developer Frédéric Buclin reported that the 'X-Frame-Options header is ignored when the value is duplicated, for example X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN, SAMEORIGIN. This duplication occurs for unknown reasons on some websites and when it occurs results in Mozilla browsers not being protected against possible clickjacking attacks on those pages. MFSA 2012-52 / CVE-2012-1962: Security researcher Bill Keese reported a memory corruption. This is caused by JSDependentString::undepend changing a dependent string into a fixed string when there are additional dependent strings relying on the same base. When the undepend occurs during conversion, the base data is freed, leaving other dependent strings with dangling pointers. This can lead to a potentially exploitable crash. MFSA 2012-53 / CVE-2012-1963: Security researcher Karthikeyan Bhargavan of Prosecco at INRIA reported Content Security Policy (CSP) 1.0 implementation errors. CSP violation reports generated by Firefox and sent to the 'report-uri' location include sensitive data within the 'blocked-uri' parameter. These include fragment components and query strings even if the 'blocked-uri' parameter has a different origin than the protected resource. This can be used to retrieve a user's OAuth 2.0 access tokens and OpenID credentials by malicious sites. MFSA 2012-54 / CVE-2012-1964: Security Researcher Matt McCutchen reported that a clickjacking attack using the certificate warning page. A man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacker can use an iframe to display its own certificate error warning page (about:certerror) with the 'Add Exception' button of a real warning page from a malicious site. This can mislead users to adding a certificate exception for a different site than the perceived one. This can lead to compromised communications with the user perceived site through the MITM attack once the certificate exception has been added. MFSA 2012-55 / CVE-2012-1965: Security researchers Mario Gomes and Soroush Dalili reported that since Mozilla allows the pseudo-protocol feed: to prefix any valid URL, it is possible to construct feed:javascript: URLs that will execute scripts in some contexts. On some sites it may be possible to use this to evade output filtering that would otherwise strip javascript: URLs and thus contribute to cross-site scripting (XSS) problems on these sites. MFSA 2012-56 / CVE-2012-1967: Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported a arbitrary code execution attack using a javascript: URL. The Gecko engine features a JavaScript sandbox utility that allows the browser or add-ons to safely execute script in the context of a web page. In certain cases, javascript: URLs are executed in such a sandbox with insufficient context that can allow those scripts to escape from the sandbox and run with elevated privilege. This can lead to arbitrary code execution.

  • NASL family Solaris Local Security Checks
    NASL id SOLARIS11_THUNDERBIRD_20130129.NASL
    description The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address security updates : - Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 13.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, Thunderbird 5.0 through 13.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, and SeaMonkey before 2.11 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors. (CVE-2012-1948) - The drag-and-drop implementation in Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 13.0 and Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.6 allows remote attackers to spoof the address bar by canceling a page load. (CVE-2012-1950) - Use-after-free vulnerability in the nsSMILTimeValueSpec::IsEventBased function in Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 13.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, Thunderbird 5.0 through 13.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, and SeaMonkey before 2.11 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) or possibly execute arbitrary code by interacting with objects used for SMIL Timing. (CVE-2012-1951) - The nsTableFrame::InsertFrames function in Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 13.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, Thunderbird 5.0 through 13.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, and SeaMonkey before 2.11 does not properly perform a cast of a frame variable during processing of mixed row-group and column-group frames, which might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted web site. (CVE-2012-1952) - The ElementAnimations::EnsureStyleRuleFor function in Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 13.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, Thunderbird 5.0 through 13.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, and SeaMonkey before 2.11 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (buffer over-read, incorrect pointer dereference, and heap-based buffer overflow) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted web site. (CVE-2012-1953) - Use-after-free vulnerability in the nsDocument::AdoptNode function in Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 13.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, Thunderbird 5.0 through 13.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, and SeaMonkey before 2.11 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) or possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors involving multiple adoptions and empty documents. (CVE-2012-1954) - Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 13.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, Thunderbird 5.0 through 13.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, and SeaMonkey before 2.11 allow remote attackers to spoof the address bar via vectors involving history.forward and history.back calls. (CVE-2012-1955) - An unspecified parser-utility class in Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 13.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, Thunderbird 5.0 through 13.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, and SeaMonkey before 2.11 does not properly handle EMBED elements within description elements in RSS feeds, which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via a feed. (CVE-2012-1957) - Use-after-free vulnerability in the nsGlobalWindow::PageHidden function in Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 13.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, Thunderbird 5.0 through 13.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, and SeaMonkey before 2.11 might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via vectors related to focused content. (CVE-2012-1958) - Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 13.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, Thunderbird 5.0 through 13.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, and SeaMonkey before 2.11 do not consider the presence of same-compartment security wrappers (SCSW) during the cross-compartment wrapping of objects, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended XBL access restrictions via crafted content. (CVE-2012-1959) - Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 13.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, Thunderbird 5.0 through 13.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, and SeaMonkey before 2.11 do not properly handle duplicate values in X-Frame-Options headers, which makes it easier for remote attackers to conduct clickjacking attacks via a FRAME element referencing a web site that produces these duplicate values. (CVE-2012-1961) - Use-after-free vulnerability in the JSDependentString::undepend function in Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 13.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, Thunderbird 5.0 through 13.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, and SeaMonkey before 2.11 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors involving strings with multiple dependencies. (CVE-2012-1962) - The Content Security Policy (CSP) functionality in Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 13.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, Thunderbird 5.0 through 13.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, and SeaMonkey before 2.11 does not properly restrict the strings placed into the blocked-uri parameter of a violation report, which allows remote web servers to capture OpenID credentials and OAuth 2.0 access tokens by triggering a violation. (CVE-2012-1963) - The certificate-warning functionality in browser/components/certerror/content/ aboutCertError.xhtml in Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 12.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, Thunderbird 5.0 through 12.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, and SeaMonkey before 2.10 does not properly handle attempted clickjacking of the about:certerror page, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to trick users into adding an unintended exception via an IFRAME element. (CVE-2012-1964) - Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 13.0 and Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.6 do not properly establish the security context of a feed: URL, which allows remote attackers to bypass unspecified cross-site scripting (XSS) protection mechanisms via a feed:javascript: URL. (CVE-2012-1965) - Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 13.0 and Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.6 do not have the same context-menu restrictions for data: URLs as for javascript: URLs, which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via a crafted URL. (CVE-2012-1966) - Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 13.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, Thunderbird 5.0 through 13.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.6, and SeaMonkey before 2.11 do not properly implement the JavaScript sandbox utility, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary JavaScript code with improper privileges via a javascript: URL. (CVE-2012-1967) - Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox before 15.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.7, Thunderbird before 15.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.7, and SeaMonkey before 2.12 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors. (CVE-2012-1970) - Use-after-free vulnerability in the nsObjectLoadingContent::LoadObject function in Mozilla Firefox before 15.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.7, Thunderbird before 15.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.7, and SeaMonkey before 2.12 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) via unspecified vectors. (CVE-2012-1973) - Mozilla Firefox before 15.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.7, Thunderbird before 15.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.7, and SeaMonkey before 2.12 allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption) via a negative height value in a BMP image within a .ICO file, related to (1) improper handling of the transparency bitmask by the nsICODecoder component and (2) improper processing of the alpha channel by the nsBMPDecoder component.

    title Mozilla Thunderbird 10.0.x < 10.0.6 Multiple Vulnerabilities
  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2012-1089.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-2012-1948, CVE-2012-1951, CVE-2012-1952, CVE-2012-1953, CVE-2012-1954, CVE-2012-1958, CVE-2012-1962, CVE-2012-1967) Malicious content could bypass same-compartment security wrappers (SCSW) and execute arbitrary code with chrome privileges. (CVE-2012-1959) A flaw in the way Thunderbird called history.forward and history.back could allow an attacker to conceal a malicious URL, possibly tricking a user into believing they are viewing trusted content. (CVE-2012-1955) A flaw in a parser utility class used by Thunderbird to parse feeds (such as RSS) could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary JavaScript with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. This issue could have affected other Thunderbird components or add-ons that assume the class returns sanitized input. (CVE-2012-1957) A flaw in the way Thunderbird handled X-Frame-Options headers could allow malicious content to perform a clickjacking attack. (CVE-2012-1961) A flaw in the way Content Security Policy (CSP) reports were generated by Thunderbird could allow malicious content to steal a victim's OAuth 2.0 access tokens and OpenID credentials. (CVE-2012-1963) A flaw in the way Thunderbird handled certificate warnings could allow a man-in-the-middle attacker to create a crafted warning, possibly tricking a user into accepting an arbitrary certificate as trusted. (CVE-2012-1964) The nss update RHBA-2012:0337 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 introduced a mitigation for the CVE-2011-3389 flaw. For compatibility reasons, it remains disabled by default in the nss packages. This update makes Thunderbird enable the mitigation by default. It can be disabled by setting the NSS_SSL_CBC_RANDOM_IV environment variable to 0 before launching Thunderbird. (BZ#838879) Red Hat would like to thank the Mozilla project for reporting these issues. Upstream acknowledges Benoit Jacob, Jesse Ruderman, Christian Holler, Bill McCloskey, Abhishek Arya, Arthur Gerkis, Bill Keese, moz_bug_r_a4, Bobby Holley, Mariusz Mlynski, Mario Heiderich, Frederic Buclin, Karthikeyan Bhargavan, and Matt McCutchen as the original reporters of these issues. Note: None of the issues in this advisory can be exploited by a specially crafted HTML mail message as JavaScript is disabled by default for mail messages. They 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 10.0.6 ESR, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Thunderbird must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

    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 Benoit Jacob, Jesse Ruderman, Christian Holler, Bill McCloskey, Brian Smith, Gary Kwong, Christoph Diehl, Chris Jones, Brad Lassey, and Kyle Huey discovered memory safety issues affecting Thunderbird. If the user were tricked into opening a specially crafted page, an attacker could possibly exploit these to cause a denial of service via application crash, or potentially execute code with the privileges of the user invoking Thunderbird. (CVE-2012-1948, CVE-2012-1949) Abhishek Arya discovered four memory safety issues affecting Thunderbird. If the user were tricked into opening a specially crafted page, an attacker could possibly exploit these to cause a denial of service via application crash, or potentially execute code with the privileges of the user invoking Thunderbird. (CVE-2012-1951, CVE-2012-1952, CVE-2012-1953, CVE-2012-1954) Mariusz Mlynski discovered that the address bar may be incorrectly updated. Calls to history.forward and history.back could be used to navigate to a site while the address bar still displayed the previous site. A remote attacker could exploit this to conduct phishing attacks. (CVE-2012-1955) Mario Heiderich discovered that HTML tags were not filtered out of the HTML of RSS feeds. A remote attacker could exploit this to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via JavaScript execution in the HTML feed view. (CVE-2012-1957) Arthur Gerkis discovered a use-after-free vulnerability. If the user were tricked into opening a specially crafted page, an attacker could possibly exploit this to cause a denial of service via application crash, or potentially execute code with the privileges of the user invoking Thunderbird. (CVE-2012-1958) Bobby Holley discovered that same-compartment security wrappers (SCSW) could be bypassed to allow XBL access. If the user were tricked into opening a specially crafted page, an attacker could possibly exploit this to execute code with the privileges of the user invoking Thunderbird. (CVE-2012-1959) Tony Payne discovered an out-of-bounds memory read in Mozilla's color management library (QCMS). If the user were tricked into opening a specially crafted color profile, an attacker could possibly exploit this to cause a denial of service via application crash. (CVE-2012-1960) Frederic Buclin discovered that the X-Frame-Options header was ignored when its value was specified multiple times. An attacker could exploit this to conduct clickjacking attacks. (CVE-2012-1961) Bill Keese discovered a memory corruption vulnerability. If the user were tricked into opening a specially crafted page, an attacker could possibly exploit this to cause a denial of service via application crash, or potentially execute code with the privileges of the user invoking Thunderbird. (CVE-2012-1962) Karthikeyan Bhargavan discovered an information leakage vulnerability in the Content Security Policy (CSP) 1.0 implementation. If the user were tricked into opening a specially crafted page, an attacker could possibly exploit this to access a user's OAuth 2.0 access tokens and OpenID credentials. (CVE-2012-1963) It was discovered that the execution of javascript: URLs was not properly handled in some cases. A remote attacker could exploit this to execute code with the privileges of the user invoking Thunderbird. (CVE-2012-1967). Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory.

    description Security issues were identified and fixed in mozilla firefox and thunderbird : 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-2012-1949, CVE-2012-1948). Security researcher Mario Gomes andresearch firm Code Audit Labs reported a mechanism to short-circuit page loads through drag and drop to the addressbar by canceling the page load. This causes the address of the previously site entered to be displayed in the addressbar instead of the currently loaded page. This could lead to potential phishing attacks on users (CVE-2012-1950). Google security researcher Abhishek Arya used the Address Sanitizer tool to uncover four issues: two use-after-free problems, one out of bounds read bug, and a bad cast. The first use-after-free problem is caused when an array of nsSMILTimeValueSpec objects is destroyed but attempts are made to call into objects in this array later. The second use-after-free problem is in nsDocument::AdoptNode when it adopts into an empty document and then adopts into another document, emptying the first one. The heap buffer overflow is in ElementAnimations when data is read off of end of an array and then pointers are dereferenced. The bad cast happens when nsTableFrame::InsertFrames is called with frames in aFrameList that are a mix of row group frames and column group frames. AppendFrames is not able to handle this mix. All four of these issues are potentially exploitable (CVE-2012-1951, CVE-2012-1954, CVE-2012-1953, CVE-2012-1952). Security researcher Mariusz Mlynski reported an issue with spoofing of the location property. In this issue, calls to history.forward and history.back are used to navigate to a site while displaying the previous site in the addressbar but changing the baseURI to the newer site. This can be used for phishing by allowing the user input form or other data on the newer, attacking, site while appearing to be on the older, displayed site (CVE-2012-1955). Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack through the context menu using a data: URL. In this issue, context menu functionality (View Image, Show only this frame, and View background image) are disallowed in a javascript: URL but allowed in a data: URL, allowing for XSS. This can lead to arbitrary code execution (CVE-2012-1966). Security researcher Mario Heiderich reported that JavaScript could be executed in the HTML feed-view using tag within the RSS . This problem is due to tags not being filtered out during parsing and can lead to a potential cross-site scripting (XSS) attack. The flaw existed in a parser utility class and could affect other parts of the browser or add-ons which rely on that class to sanitize untrusted input (CVE-2012-1957). Security researcher Arthur Gerkis used the Address Sanitizer tool to find a use-after-free in nsGlobalWindow::PageHidden when mFocusedContent is released and oldFocusedContent is used afterwards. This use-after-free could possibly allow for remote code execution (CVE-2012-1958). Mozilla developer Bobby Holley found that same-compartment security wrappers (SCSW) can be bypassed by passing them to another compartment. Cross-compartment wrappers often do not go through SCSW, but have a filtering policy built into them. When an object is wrapped cross-compartment, the SCSW is stripped off and, when the object is read read back, it is not known that SCSW was previously present, resulting in a bypassing of SCSW. This could result in untrusted content having access to the XBL that implements browser functionality (CVE-2012-1959). Google developer Tony Payne reported an out of bounds (OOB) read in QCMS, Mozillas color management library. With a carefully crafted color profile portions of a user's memory could be incorporated into a transformed image and possibly deciphered (CVE-2012-1960). Bugzilla developer Fredric Buclin reported that the X-Frame-Options header is ignored when the value is duplicated, for example X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN, SAMEORIGIN. This duplication occurs for unknown reasons on some websites and when it occurs results in Mozilla browsers not being protected against possible clickjacking attacks on those pages (CVE-2012-1961). Security researcher Bill Keese reported a memory corruption. This is caused by JSDependentString::undepend changing a dependent string into a fixed string when there are additional dependent strings relying on the same base. When the undepend occurs during conversion, the base data is freed, leaving other dependent strings with dangling pointers. This can lead to a potentially exploitable crash (CVE-2012-1962). Security researcher Karthikeyan Bhargavan of Prosecco at INRIA reported Content Security Policy (CSP) 1.0 implementation errors. CSP violation reports generated by Firefox and sent to the report-uri location include sensitive data within the blocked-uri parameter. These include fragment components and query strings even if the blocked-uri parameter has a different origin than the protected resource. This can be used to retrieve a user's OAuth 2.0 access tokens and OpenID credentials by malicious sites (CVE-2012-1963). Security Researcher Matt McCutchen reported that a clickjacking attack using the certificate warning page. A man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacker can use an iframe to display its own certificate error warning page (about:certerror) with the Add Exception button of a real warning page from a malicious site. This can mislead users to adding a certificate exception for a different site than the perceived one. This can lead to compromised communications with the user perceived site through the MITM attack once the certificate exception has been added (CVE-2012-1964). Security researchers Mario Gomes and Soroush Dalili reported that since Mozilla allows the pseudo-protocol feed: to prefix any valid URL, it is possible to construct feed:javascript: URLs that will execute scripts in some contexts. On some sites it may be possible to use this to evade output filtering that would otherwise strip javascript: URLs and thus contribute to cross-site scripting (XSS) problems on these sites (CVE-2012-1965). Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported a arbitrary code execution attack using a javascript: URL. The Gecko engine features a JavaScript sandbox utility that allows the browser or add-ons to safely execute script in the context of a web page. In certain cases, javascript: URLs are executed in such a sandbox with insufficient context that can allow those scripts to escape from the sandbox and run with elevated privilege. This can lead to arbitrary code execution (CVE-2012-1967). The mozilla firefox and thunderbird packages has been upgraded to the latest respective versions which is unaffected by these security flaws. Additionally the rootcerts packages has been upgraded to the latest version which brings updated root CA data. Update : Localization packages for firefox was missing with the MDVSA-2012:110 advisory and is being provided with this advisory.

    description Mozilla Firefox is an open source web browser. XULRunner provides the XUL Runtime environment for Mozilla Firefox. 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-2012-1948, CVE-2012-1951, CVE-2012-1952, CVE-2012-1953, CVE-2012-1954, CVE-2012-1958, CVE-2012-1962, CVE-2012-1967) A malicious web page could bypass same-compartment security wrappers (SCSW) and execute arbitrary code with chrome privileges. (CVE-2012-1959) A flaw in the context menu functionality in Firefox could allow a malicious website to bypass intended restrictions and allow a cross-site scripting attack. (CVE-2012-1966) A page different to that in the address bar could be displayed when dragging and dropping to the address bar, possibly making it easier for a malicious site or user to perform a phishing attack. (CVE-2012-1950) A flaw in the way Firefox called history.forward and history.back could allow an attacker to conceal a malicious URL, possibly tricking a user into believing they are viewing a trusted site. (CVE-2012-1955) A flaw in a parser utility class used by Firefox to parse feeds (such as RSS) could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary JavaScript with the privileges of the user running Firefox. This issue could have affected other browser components or add-ons that assume the class returns sanitized input. (CVE-2012-1957) A flaw in the way Firefox handled X-Frame-Options headers could allow a malicious website to perform a clickjacking attack. (CVE-2012-1961) A flaw in the way Content Security Policy (CSP) reports were generated by Firefox could allow a malicious web page to steal a victim's OAuth 2.0 access tokens and OpenID credentials. (CVE-2012-1963) A flaw in the way Firefox handled certificate warnings could allow a man-in-the-middle attacker to create a crafted warning, possibly tricking a user into accepting an arbitrary certificate as trusted. (CVE-2012-1964) A flaw in the way Firefox handled feed:javascript URLs could allow output filtering to be bypassed, possibly leading to a cross-site scripting attack. (CVE-2012-1965) The a previous nss update introduced a mitigation for the CVE-2011-3389 flaw. For compatibility reasons, it remains disabled by default in the nss packages. This update makes Firefox enable the mitigation by default. It can be disabled by setting the NSS_SSL_CBC_RANDOM_IV environment variable to 0 before launching Firefox. For technical details regarding these flaws, refer to the Mozilla security advisories for Firefox 10.0.6 ESR. All Firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain Firefox version 10.0.6 ESR, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2012:1089 : 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-2012-1948, CVE-2012-1951, CVE-2012-1952, CVE-2012-1953, CVE-2012-1954, CVE-2012-1958, CVE-2012-1962, CVE-2012-1967) Malicious content could bypass same-compartment security wrappers (SCSW) and execute arbitrary code with chrome privileges. (CVE-2012-1959) A flaw in the way Thunderbird called history.forward and history.back could allow an attacker to conceal a malicious URL, possibly tricking a user into believing they are viewing trusted content. (CVE-2012-1955) A flaw in a parser utility class used by Thunderbird to parse feeds (such as RSS) could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary JavaScript with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. This issue could have affected other Thunderbird components or add-ons that assume the class returns sanitized input. (CVE-2012-1957) A flaw in the way Thunderbird handled X-Frame-Options headers could allow malicious content to perform a clickjacking attack. (CVE-2012-1961) A flaw in the way Content Security Policy (CSP) reports were generated by Thunderbird could allow malicious content to steal a victim's OAuth 2.0 access tokens and OpenID credentials. (CVE-2012-1963) A flaw in the way Thunderbird handled certificate warnings could allow a man-in-the-middle attacker to create a crafted warning, possibly tricking a user into accepting an arbitrary certificate as trusted. (CVE-2012-1964) The nss update RHBA-2012:0337 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 introduced a mitigation for the CVE-2011-3389 flaw. For compatibility reasons, it remains disabled by default in the nss packages. This update makes Thunderbird enable the mitigation by default. It can be disabled by setting the NSS_SSL_CBC_RANDOM_IV environment variable to 0 before launching Thunderbird. (BZ#838879) Red Hat would like to thank the Mozilla project for reporting these issues. Upstream acknowledges Benoit Jacob, Jesse Ruderman, Christian Holler, Bill McCloskey, Abhishek Arya, Arthur Gerkis, Bill Keese, moz_bug_r_a4, Bobby Holley, Mariusz Mlynski, Mario Heiderich, Frederic Buclin, Karthikeyan Bhargavan, and Matt McCutchen as the original reporters of these issues. Note: None of the issues in this advisory can be exploited by a specially crafted HTML mail message as JavaScript is disabled by default for mail messages. They 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 10.0.6 ESR, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Thunderbird must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
