||Mozilla Firefox before 39.0 on OS X includes native key press information during the logging of crashes, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information by leveraging access to a crash-reporting data stream.
|Base: ||4.3 (as of 18-10-2016 - 11:30)|
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.
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.
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||The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201512-10 (Mozilla Products: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Mozilla Firefox and Mozilla Thunderbird. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
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.
There is no known workaround at this time. |

|description||The version of Firefox installed on the remote Mac OS X host is prior to 39.0. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- A security downgrade vulnerability exists due to a flaw in Network Security Services (NSS). When a client allows for a ECDHE_ECDSA exchange, but the server does not send a ServerKeyExchange message, the NSS client will take the EC key from the ECDSA certificate. A remote attacker can exploit this to silently downgrade the exchange to a non-forward secret mixed-ECDH exchange. (CVE-2015-2721)
- Multiple user-after-free errors exist when using an XMLHttpRequest object in concert with either shared or dedicated workers. A remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2015-2722, CVE-2015-2733)
- Multiple memory corruption issues exist that allow an attacker to cause a denial of service condition or potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-2724, CVE-2015-2725)
- A type confusion flaw exists in the Indexed Database Manager's handling of IDBDatabase. A remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-2728)
- An out-of-bounds read flaw exists in the AudioParamTimeline::AudioNodeInputValue() function when computing oscillator rending ranges. An attacker can exploit this to disclose the contents of four bytes of memory or cause a denial of service condition.
- A signature spoofing vulnerability exists due to a flaw in Network Security Services (NSS) in its Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) signature validation. A remote attacker can exploit this to forge signatures. (CVE-2015-2730)
- A use-after-free error exists in the CSPService::ShouldLoad() function when modifying the Document Object Model to remove a DOM object. An attacker can exploit this to dereference already freed memory, potentially resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-2731)
- An uninitialized memory use issue exists in the CairoTextureClientD3D9::BorrowDrawTarget() function, the ::d3d11::SetBufferData() function, and the YCbCrImageDataDeserializer::ToDataSourceSurface() function. The impact is unspecified. (CVE-2015-2734, CVE-2015-2737, CVE-2015-2738)
- A memory corruption issue exists in the nsZipArchive::GetDataOffset() function due to improper string length checks. An attacker can exploit this, via a crafted ZIP archive, to potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-2735)
- A memory corruption issue exists in the nsZipArchive::BuildFileList() function due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An attacker can exploit this, via a crafted ZIP archive, to potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-2736)
- An unspecified memory corruption issue exists in the ArrayBufferBuilder::append() function due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An attacker can exploit this to potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A buffer overflow condition exists in the nsXMLHttpRequest::AppendToResponseText() function due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An attacker can exploit this to potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A security bypass vulnerability exists due to a flaw in certificate pinning checks. Key pinning is not enforced upon encountering an X.509 certificate problem that generates a user dialog. A man-in-the-middle attacker can exploit this to bypass intended access restrictions.
- An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to crash reports containing key press information.
- A privilege escalation vulnerability exists in the PDF viewer (PDF.js) due to internal workers being executed insecurely. An attacker can exploit this, by leveraging a Same Origin Policy bypass, to execute arbitrary code.
- A man-in-the-middle vulnerability, known as Logjam, exists due to a flaw in the SSL/TLS protocol. A remote attacker can exploit this flaw to downgrade connections using ephemeral Diffie-Hellman key exchange to 512-bit export-grade cryptography. (CVE-2015-4000) |
