ID CVE-2015-0806
Summary The Off Main Thread Compositing (OMTC) implementation in Mozilla Firefox before 37.0 attempts to use memset for a memory region of negative length during interaction with the mozilla::layers::BufferTextureClient::AllocateForSurface function, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption) via vectors that trigger rendering of 2D graphics content.

    description Olli Pettay and Boris Zbarsky discovered an issue during anchor navigations in some circumstances. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to bypass same-origin policy restrictions. (CVE-2015-0801) Bobby Holley discovered that windows created to hold privileged UI content retained access to privileged internal methods if navigated to unprivileged content. An attacker could potentially exploit this in combination with another flaw, in order to execute arbitrary script in a privileged context. (CVE-2015-0802) Several type confusion issues were discovered 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-2015-0803, CVE-2015-0804) Abhishek Arya discovered memory corruption issues during 2D graphics rendering. 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-2015-0805, CVE-2015-0806) Christoph Kerschbaumer discovered that CORS requests from navigator.sendBeacon() followed 30x redirections after preflight. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to conduct cross-site request forgery (XSRF) attacks. (CVE-2015-0807) Mitchell Harper discovered an issue with memory management of simple-type arrays in WebRTC. An attacker could potentially exploit this to cause undefined behaviour. (CVE-2015-0808) Felix Grobert discovered an out-of-bounds read in the QCMS colour management library. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to obtain sensitive information. (CVE-2015-0811) Armin Razmdjou discovered that lightweight themes could be installed in Firefox without a user approval message, from Mozilla subdomains over HTTP without SSL. A remote attacker could potentially exploit this by conducting a Man-In-The-Middle (MITM) attack to install themes without user approval. (CVE-2015-0812) Aki Helin discovered a use-after-free when playing MP3 audio files using the Fluendo MP3 GStreamer plugin in certain 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-2015-0813) Christian Holler, Andrew McCreight, Gary Kwong, Karl Tomlinson, Randell Jesup, Shu-yu Guo, Steve Fink, Tooru Fujisawa, and Byron Campen 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-2015-0814, CVE-2015-0815) Mariusz Mlynski discovered that documents loaded via resource: URLs (such as PDF.js) could load privileged chrome pages. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this in combination with another flaw, in order to execute arbitrary script in a privileged context. (CVE-2015-0816). Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    description The version of Firefox installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 37.0. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities : - A privilege escalation vulnerability exists which relates to anchor navigation. A remote attacker can exploit this to bypass same-origin policy protections, allowing a possible execution of arbitrary scripts in a privileged context. Note that this is a variant of CVE-2015-0818 that was fixed in Firefox 36.0.4. (CVE-2015-0801) - Access to certain privileged internal methods is retained when navigating from windows created to contain privileged UI content to unprivileged pages. An attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary JavaScript with elevated privileges. (CVE-2015-0802) - Multiple type confusion issues exist that can lead to use-after-free errors, which a remote attacker can exploit to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service.
