    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 steal sensitive information. (CVE-2014-1577) Abhishek Arya discovered an out-of-bounds write when buffering WebM video 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-2014-1578) 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).

    description The version of Firefox installed on the remote Windows host is a version prior to 33.0. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities : - Multiple memory safety flaws exist within the browser engine. Exploiting these, an attacker can cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-1574, CVE-2014-1575) - A buffer overflow vulnerability exists when capitalization style changes occur during CSS parsing. (CVE-2014-1576) - An out-of-bounds read error exists in the Web Audio component when invalid values are used in custom waveforms that leads to a denial of service or information disclosure. (CVE-2014-1577) - An out-of-bounds write error exists when processing invalid tile sizes in 'WebM' format videos that result in arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2014-1578) - Memory is not properly initialized during GIF rendering within a '' element. Using a specially crafted web script, a remote attacker can exploit this to acquire sensitive information from the process memory. (CVE-2014-1580) - A use-after-free error exists in the 'DirectionalityUtils' component when text direction is used in the text layout that results in arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2014-1581) - Multiple security bypass vulnerabilities exist related to key pinning, a method to prevent man-in-the-middle attacks by verifying certificates. An attacker can use SPDY or HTTP/2 connection coalescing to bypass key pinning on websites that use a domain name that resolve to the same IP address. Another issue exists in which key pinning verification is not performed due to an issue verifying the issuer of an SSL certificate. These issues could result in man-in-the-middle attacks. Note that key pinning was introduced in Firefox 32. (CVE-2014-1582, CVE-2014-1584) - An error exists that could allow a malicious app to use 'AlarmAPI' to read cross-origin references and possibly allow for the same-origin policy to be bypassed. (CVE-2014-1583) - Multiple issues exist in WebRTC when the session is running within an 'iframe' element that will allow the session to be accessible even when sharing is stopped and when returning to the website. This could lead to video inadvertently being shared. (CVE-2014-1585, CVE-2014-1586)

    description Updated firefox packages that fix multiple security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6, and 7. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Critical security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. Mozilla Firefox is an open source web browser. XULRunner provides the XUL Runtime environment for Mozilla Firefox. Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2014-1574, CVE-2014-1578, CVE-2014-1581, CVE-2014-1576, CVE-2014-1577) A flaw was found in the Alarm API, which allows applications to schedule actions to be run in the future. A malicious web application could use this flaw to bypass cross-origin restrictions. (CVE-2014-1583) Red Hat would like to thank the Mozilla project for reporting these issues. Upstream acknowledges Bobby Holley, Christian Holler, David Bolter, Byron Campen Jon Coppeard, Atte Kettunen, Holger Fuhrmannek, Abhishek Arya, regenrecht, and Boris Zbarsky as the original reporters of these issues. For technical details regarding these flaws, refer to the Mozilla security advisories for Firefox 31.2.0 ESR. You can find a link to the Mozilla advisories in the References section of this erratum. All Firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain Firefox version 31.2.0 ESR, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

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.

    description The version of Firefox ESR 31.x installed on the remote Mac OS X host is prior to 31.2. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities : - Multiple memory safety flaws exist within the browser engine. Exploiting these, an attacker can cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-1574, CVE-2014-1575) - A buffer overflow vulnerability exists when capitalization style changes occur during CSS parsing. (CVE-2014-1576) - An out-of-bounds read error exists in the Web Audio component when invalid values are used in custom waveforms that leads to a denial of service or information disclosure. (CVE-2014-1577) - An out-of-bounds write error exists when processing invalid tile sizes in 'WebM' format videos that result in arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2014-1578) - A use-after-free error exists in the 'DirectionalityUtils' component when text direction is used in the text layout that results in arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2014-1581) - An error exists that could allow a malicious app to use 'AlarmAPI' to read cross-origin references and possibly allow for the same-origin policy to be bypassed. (CVE-2014-1583) - Multiple issues exist in WebRTC when the session is running within an 'iframe' element that will allow the session to be accessible even when sharing is stopped and when returning to the website. This could lead to video inadvertently being shared. (CVE-2014-1585, CVE-2014-1586)
