Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : mozilla (MDVSA-2011:127)

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Security issues were identified and fixed in mozilla firefox and
thunderbird :

Mozilla developers and community members identified and fixed several
memory safety bugs in the browser engine used in Firefox 3.6 and other
Mozilla-based products. Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory
corruption under certain circumstances, and we presume that with
enough effort at least some of these could be exploited to run
arbitrary code (CVE-2011-2982).

Security researcher regenrecht reported via TippingPoint's Zero Day
Initiative that a SVG text manipulation routine contained a dangling
pointer vulnerability (CVE-2011-0084).

Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a_4 reported a vulnerability in
event management code that would permit JavaScript to be run in the
wrong context, including that of a different website or potentially in
a chrome-privileged context (CVE-2011-2981).

Security researcher regenrecht reported via TippingPoint's Zero Day
Initiative that appendChild did not correctly account for DOM objects
it operated upon and could be exploited to dereference an invalid
pointer (CVE-2011-2378).

Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported that web content
could receive chrome privileges if it registered for drop events and a
browser tab element was dropped into the content area (CVE-2011-2984).

Security researcher Mitja Kolsek of Acros Security reported that
ThinkPadSensor::Startup could potentially be exploited to load a
malicious DLL into the running process (CVE-2011-2980).

Security researcher shutdown reported that data from other domains
could be read when RegExp.input was set (CVE-2011-2983).
