ID CVE-2014-1580
Summary Mozilla Firefox before 33.0 does not properly initialize memory for GIF images, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information from process memory via a crafted web page that triggers a sequence of rendering operations for truncated GIF data within a CANVAS element.

Impact:
Exploitability:
CWE CWE-200
CAPEC
  • 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.
  • Footprinting
    An attacker engages in probing and exploration activity to identify constituents and properties of the target. Footprinting is a general term to describe a variety of information gathering techniques, often used by attackers in preparation for some attack. It consists of using tools to learn as much as possible about the composition, configuration, and security mechanisms of the targeted application, system or network. Information that might be collected during a footprinting effort could include open ports, applications and their versions, network topology, and similar information. While footprinting is not intended to be damaging (although certain activities, such as network scans, can sometimes cause disruptions to vulnerable applications inadvertently) it may often pave the way for more damaging attacks.
  • 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.
  • Browser Fingerprinting
    An attacker carefully crafts small snippets of Java Script to efficiently detect the type of browser the potential victim is using. Many web-based attacks need prior knowledge of the web browser including the version of browser to ensure successful exploitation of a vulnerability. Having this knowledge allows an attacker to target the victim with attacks that specifically exploit known or zero day weaknesses in the type and version of the browser used by the victim. Automating this process via Java Script as a part of the same delivery system used to exploit the browser is considered more efficient as the attacker can supply a browser fingerprinting method and integrate it with exploit code, all contained in Java Script and in response to the same web page request by the browser.
  • Session Credential Falsification through Prediction
    This attack targets predictable session ID in order to gain privileges. The attacker can predict the session ID used during a transaction to perform spoofing and session hijacking.
  • Reusing Session IDs (aka Session Replay)
    This attack targets the reuse of valid session ID to spoof the target system in order to gain privileges. The attacker tries to reuse a stolen session ID used previously during a transaction to perform spoofing and session hijacking. Another name for this type of attack is Session Replay.
  • 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.

    description Bobby Holley, Christian Holler, David Bolter, Byron Campen, Jon Coppeard, Carsten Book, Martijn Wargers, Shih-Chiang Chien, Terrence Cole and Jeff Walden discovered multiple memory safety issues in Firefox. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit these to cause a denial of service via application crash, or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking Firefox. (CVE-2014-1574, CVE-2014-1575) Atte Kettunen discovered a buffer overflow during CSS manipulation. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via application crash or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking Firefox. (CVE-2014-1576) Holger Fuhrmannek discovered an out-of-bounds read with Web Audio.

If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via application crash or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking Firefox. (CVE-2014-1578) Michal Zalewski discovered that memory may not be correctly initialized when rendering a malformed GIF in to a canvas in some circumstances. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to steal sensitive information. (CVE-2014-1580) A use-after-free was discovered during text layout in some circumstances. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via application crash or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking Firefox. (CVE-2014-1581) Patrick McManus and David Keeler discovered 2 issues that could result in certificate pinning being bypassed in some circumstances. An attacker with a fraudulent certificate could potentially exploit this conduct a man in the middle attack. (CVE-2014-1582, CVE-2014-1584) Eric Shepherd and Jan-Ivar Bruaroey discovered issues with video sharing via WebRTC in iframes, where video continues to be shared after being stopped and navigating to a new site doesn't turn off the camera. An attacker could potentially exploit this to access the camera without the user being aware. (CVE-2014-1585, CVE-2014-1586) Boris Zbarsky discovered that webapps could use the Alarm API to read the values of cross-origin references. If a user were tricked in to installing a specially crafter webapp, an attacker could potentially exploit this to bypass same-origin restrictions. (CVE-2014-1583).

Negotiate TLS 1.3 - Part 2. Remove deprecated cipher suites andcompression. - Add support for little-endian powerpc64 - update to 3.17 - required for Firefox 33 New functionality : - When using ECDHE, the TLS server code may be configured to generate a fresh ephemeral ECDH key for each handshake, by setting the SSL_REUSE_SERVER_ECDHE_KEY socket option to PR_FALSE. The SSL_REUSE_SERVER_ECDHE_KEY option defaults to PR_TRUE, which means the server's ephemeral ECDH key is reused for multiple handshakes. This option does not affect the TLS client code, which always generates a fresh ephemeral ECDH key for each handshake. New Macros - SSL_REUSE_SERVER_ECDHE_KEY Notable Changes : - The manual pages for the certutil and pp tools have been updated to document the new parameters that had been added in NSS 3.16.2. - On Windows, the new build variable USE_STATIC_RTL can be used to specify the static C runtime library should be used. By default the dynamic C runtime library is used.
