ID CVE-2016-2831
Summary Mozilla Firefox before 47.0 and Firefox ESR 45.x before 45.2 do not ensure that the user approves the fullscreen and pointerlock settings, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (UI outage), or conduct clickjacking or spoofing attacks, via a crafted web site.

    description The version of Firefox ESR installed on the remote Windows host is 45.x prior to 45.2. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - Multiple memory corruption issues exist that allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-2818) - An overflow condition exists that is triggered when handling HTML5 fragments in foreign contexts (e.g., under nodes). An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a heap-based buffer overflow, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-2819) - A use-after-free error exists that is triggered when deleting DOM table elements in 'contenteditable' mode. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to dereference already freed memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-2821) - A spoofing vulnerability exists due to improper handling of SELECT elements. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to spoof the contents of the address bar. (CVE-2016-2822) - An out-of-bounds write error exists in the ANGLE graphics library due to improper size checking while writing to an array during WebGL shader operations. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-2824) - A privilege escalation vulnerability exists in the Windows updater utility due to improper extraction of files from MAR archives. A local attacker can exploit this to replace the extracted files, allowing the attacker to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-2826) - A use-after-free error exists that is triggered when destroying the recycle pool of a texture used during the processing of WebGL content. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to dereference already freed memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-2828) - A flaw exists that is triggered when handling paired fullscreen and pointerlock requests in combination with closing windows. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to create an unauthorized pointerlock, resulting in a denial of service condition. Additionally, an attacker can exploit this to conduct spoofing and clickjacking attacks. (CVE-2016-2831)

    description Multiple security issues have been found in the Mozilla Firefox web browser: Multiple memory safety errors, buffer overflows and other implementation errors may lead to the execution of arbitrary code or spoofing. Wait, Firefox? No more references to Iceweasel? That's right, Debian no longer applies a custom branding. Please see these links for further information: https://glandium.org/blog/?p=3622, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozilla_software_rebranded_by_Debian Debian follows the extended support releases (ESR) of Firefox. Support for the 38.x series has ended, so starting with this update we're now following the 45.x releases and this update to the next ESR is also the point where we reapply the original branding. Transition packages for the iceweasel packages are provided which automatically upgrade to the new version. Since new binary packages need to be installed, make sure to allow that in your upgrade procedure (e.g. by using 'apt-get dist-upgrade' instead of 'apt-get upgrade').

    description An update for firefox is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Critical. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section. Mozilla Firefox is an open source web browser. This update upgrades Firefox to version 45.2.0 ESR. Security Fix(es) : * Multiple 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.

    description Multiple security issues have been found in the Mozilla Firefox web browser: Multiple memory safety errors, buffer overflows and other implementation errors may lead to the execution of arbitrary code or spoofing. Wait, Firefox? No more references to Iceweasel? That's right, Debian no longer applies a custom branding. Please see these links for further information: https://glandium.org/blog/?p=3622 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozilla_software_rebranded_by_Debian Debian follows the extended support releases (ESR) of Firefox. Support for the 38.x series has ended, so starting with this update we're now following the 45.x releases and this update to the next ESR is also the point where we reapply the original branding. Transition packages for the iceweasel packages are provided which automatically upgrade to the new version. Since new binary packages need to be installed, make sure to allow that in your upgrade procedure (e.g. by using 'apt-get dist-upgrade' instead of 'apt-get upgrade'). For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 45.2.0esr-1~deb7u1. We recommend that you upgrade your firefox-esr packages. NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

  • NASL family MacOS X Local Security Checks
    NASL id MACOSX_FIREFOX_47.NASL
    description The version of Firefox installed on the remote Mac OS X host is prior to 47. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - Multiple memory corruption issues exist that allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-2815, CVE-2016-2818) - An overflow condition exists that is triggered when handling HTML5 fragments in foreign contexts (e.g., under nodes). An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a heap-based buffer overflow, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-2819) - A use-after-free error exists that is triggered when deleting DOM table elements in 'contenteditable' mode. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to dereference already freed memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-2821) - A spoofing vulnerability exists due to improper handling of SELECT elements. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to spoof the contents of the address bar. (CVE-2016-2822) - A same-origin bypass vulnerability exists that is triggered when handling location.host property values set after the creation of invalid 'data:' URIs. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to partially bypass same-origin policy protections. (CVE-2016-2825) - A use-after-free error exists that is triggered when destroying the recycle pool of a texture used during the processing of WebGL content. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to dereference already freed memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-2828) - A flaw exists in browser/modules/webrtcUI.jsm that is triggered when handling a large number of permission requests over a small period of time. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause the incorrect icon to be displayed in a given permission request, potentially resulting in a user approving unintended permission requests. (CVE-2016-2829) - A flaw exists that is triggered when handling paired fullscreen and pointerlock requests in combination with closing windows. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to create an unauthorized pointerlock, resulting in a denial of service condition. Additionally, an attacker can exploit this to conduct spoofing and clickjacking attacks. (CVE-2016-2831) - An information disclosure vulnerability exists that is triggered when handling CSS pseudo-classes. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this disclose a list of installed plugins. (CVE-2016-2832) - A Content Security Policy (CSP) bypass exists that is triggered when handling specially crafted cross-domain Java applets. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to bypass the CSP and conduct cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2016-2833) - Multiple unspecified flaws exist in the Mozilla Network Security Services (NSS) component that allow an attacker to have an unspecified impact. (CVE-2016-2834)
