    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 Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Iceweasel, a web browser based on Firefox. The included XULRunner library provides rendering services for several other applications included in Debian. - CVE-2012-1948 Benoit Jacob, Jesse Ruderman, Christian Holler, and Bill McCloskey identified several memory safety problems that may lead to the execution of arbitrary code. - CVE-2012-1950 Mario Gomes and Code Audit Labs discovered that it is possible to force Iceweasel to display the URL of the previous entered site through drag and drop actions to the address bar. This can be abused to perform phishing attacks. - CVE-2012-1954 Abhishek Arya discovered a use-after-free problem in nsDocument::AdoptNode that may lead to the execution of arbitrary code. - CVE-2012-1966 'moz_bug_r_a4' discovered that it is possible to perform cross-site scripting attacks through the context menu when using data: URLs. - CVE-2012-1967 'moz_bug_r_a4' discovered that in certain cases, javascript: URLs can be executed so that scripts can escape the JavaScript sandbox and run with elevated privileges. Note: We'd like to advise users of Iceweasel's 3.5 branch in Debian stable to consider to upgrade to the Iceweasel 10.0 ESR (Extended Support Release) which is now available in Debian Backports. Although Debian will continue to support Iceweasel 3.5 in stable with security updates, this can only be done on a best effort basis as upstream provides no such support anymore. On top of that, the 10.0 branch adds proactive security features to the browser.

  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id OPENSUSE-2012-410.NASL
    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.

(MFSA 2012-46 / 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. (MFSA 2012-47 / 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. (MFSA 2012-48 / 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. (MFSA 2012-49 / CVE-2012-1959) - 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 2012-50 / CVE-2012-1960) - Bugzilla developer Frederic 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 2012-51 / 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. (MFSA 2012-52 / 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. (MFSA 2012-53 / 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. (MFSA 2012-54 / 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. (MFSA 2012-55 / 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. (MFSA 2012-56 / CVE-2012-1967)

  • 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.

    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.

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.

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).

(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.

    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.
