SUSE SLES10 Security Update : Mozilla Firefox (SUSE-SU-2013:0306-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

Mozilla Firefox is updated to the 10.0.12ESR version.

This is a roll-up update for LTSS.

It fixes a lot of security issues and bugs. 10.0.12ESR fixes
specifically :

MFSA 2013-01: Mozilla developers identified and fixed several memory
safety bugs in the browser engine used in Firefox 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.

Christoph Diehl, Christian Holler, Mats Palmgren, and Chiaki
Ishikawa reported memory safety problems and crashes that
affect Firefox ESR 10, Firefox ESR 17, and Firefox 17.
(CVE-2013-0769)

Bill Gianopoulos, Benoit Jacob, Christoph Diehl, Christian
Holler, Gary Kwong, Robert O'Callahan, and Scoobidiver
reported memory safety problems and crashes that affect
Firefox ESR 17 and Firefox 17. (CVE-2013-0749)

Jesse Ruderman, Christian Holler, Julian Seward, and
Scoobidiver reported memory safety problems and crashes that
affect Firefox 17. (CVE-2013-0770)

MFSA 2013-02: Security researcher Abhishek Arya (Inferno) of
the Google Chrome Security Team discovered a series
critically rated of use-after-free, out of bounds read, and
buffer overflow issues using the Address Sanitizer tool in
shipped software. These issues are potentially exploitable,
allowing for remote code execution. We would also like to
thank Abhishek for reporting three additional
user-after-free and out of bounds read flaws introduced
during Firefox development that were fixed before general
release.

The following issue has been fixed in Firefox 18 :

- Global-buffer-overflow in
CharDistributionAnalysis::HandleOneChar (CVE-2013-0760)

The following issues has been fixed in Firefox 18, ESR
17.0.1, and ESR 10.0.12 :

- Heap-use-after-free in imgRequest::OnStopFrame
(CVE-2013-0762)
- Heap-use-after-free in ~nsHTMLEditRules (CVE-2013-0766)
- Out of bounds read in
nsSVGPathElement::GetPathLengthScale (CVE-2013-0763)
- Heap-buffer-overflow in
gfxTextRun::ShrinkToLigatureBoundaries (CVE-2013-0771)

The following issue has been fixed in Firefox 18 and in
the earlier ESR 10.0.11 release :

- Heap-buffer-overflow in nsWindow::OnExposeEvent
(CVE-2012-5829) MFSA 2013-03: Security researcher
miaubiz used the Address Sanitizer tool to discover a
buffer overflow in Canvas when specific bad height and
width values were given through HTML. This could lead to
a potentially exploitable crash. (CVE-2013-0768)

Miaubiz also found a potentially exploitable crash when
2D and 3D content was mixed which was introduced during
Firefox development and fixed before general release.

MFSA 2013-04: Security researcher Masato Kinugawa found
a flaw in which the displayed URL values within the
addressbar can be spoofed by a page during loading. This
allows for phishing attacks where a malicious page can
spoof the identify of another site. (CVE-2013-0759)

MFSA 2013-05: Using the Address Sanitizer tool, security
researcher Atte Kettunen from OUSPG discovered that the
combination of large numbers of columns and column
groups in a table could cause the array containing the
columns during rendering to overwrite itself. This can
lead to a user-after-free causing a potentially
exploitable crash. (CVE-2013-0744)

MFSA 2013-06: Mozilla developer Wesley Johnston reported
that when there are two or more iframes on the same HTML
page, an iframe is able to see the touch events and
their targets that occur within the other iframes on the
page. If the iframes are from the same origin, they can
also access the properties and methods of the targets of
other iframes but same-origin policy (SOP) restricts
access across domains. This allows for information
leakage and possibilities for cross-site scripting (XSS)
if another vulnerability can be used to get around SOP
restrictions. (CVE-2013-0751)

MFSA 2013-07: Mozilla community member Jerry Baker
reported a crashing issue found through Thunderbird when
downloading messages over a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)
connection. This was caused by a bug in the networking
code assuming that secure connections were entirely
handled on the socket transport thread when they can
occur on a variety of threads. The resulting crash was
potentially exploitable. (CVE-2013-0764)

MFSA 2013-08: Mozilla developer Olli Pettay discovered
that the AutoWrapperChanger class fails to keep some
JavaScript objects alive during garbage collection. This
can lead to an exploitable crash allowing for arbitrary
code execution. (CVE-2013-0745)

MFSA 2013-09: Mozilla developer Boris Zbarsky reported
reported a problem where jsval-returning quickstubs fail
to wrap their return values, causing a compartment
mismatch. This mismatch can cause garbage collection to
occur incorrectly and lead to a potentially exploitable
crash. (CVE-2013-0746)

MFSA 2013-10: Mozilla security researcher Jesse Ruderman
reported that events in the plugin handler can be
manipulated by web content to bypass same-origin policy
(SOP) restrictions. This can allow for clickjacking on
malicious web pages. (CVE-2013-0747)

MFSA 2013-11: Mozilla security researcher Jesse Ruderman
discovered that using the toString function of XBL
objects can lead to inappropriate information leakage by
revealing the address space layout instead of just the
ID of the object. This layout information could
potentially be used to bypass ASLR and other security
protections. (CVE-2013-0748)

MFSA 2013-12: Security researcher pa_kt reported a flaw
via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative that an integer
overflow is possible when calculating the length for a
JavaScript string concatenation, which is then used for
memory allocation. This results in a buffer overflow,
leading to a potentially exploitable memory corruption.
(CVE-2013-0750)

MFSA 2013-13: Security researcher Sviatoslav Chagaev
reported that when using an XBL file containing multiple
XML bindings with SVG content, a memory corruption can
occur. In concern with remote XUL, this can lead to an
exploitable crash. (CVE-2013-0752)

MFSA 2013-14: Security researcher Mariusz Mlynski
reported that it is possible to change the prototype of
an object and bypass Chrome Object Wrappers (COW) to
gain access to chrome privileged functions. This could
allow for arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-0757)

MFSA 2013-15: Security researcher Mariusz Mlynski
reported that it is possible to open a chrome privileged
web page through plugin objects through interaction with
SVG elements. This could allow for arbitrary code
execution. (CVE-2013-0758)

MFSA 2013-16: Security researcher regenrecht reported,
via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative, a use-after-free
in XMLSerializer by the exposing of serializeToStream to
web content. This can lead to arbitrary code execution
when exploited. (CVE-2013-0753)

MFSA 2013-17: Security researcher regenrecht reported,
via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative, a use-after-free
within the ListenerManager when garbage collection is
forced after data in listener objects have been
allocated in some circumstances. This results in a
use-after-free which can lead to arbitrary code
execution. (CVE-2013-0754)

MFSA 2013-18: Security researcher regenrecht reported,
via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative, a use-after-free
using the domDoc pointer within Vibrate library. This
can lead to arbitrary code execution when exploited.
(CVE-2013-0755)

MFSA 2013-19: Security researcher regenrecht reported,
via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative, a garbage
collection flaw in JavaScript Proxy objects. This can
lead to a use-after-free leading to arbitrary code
execution. (CVE-2013-0756)

MFSA 2013-20: Google reported to Mozilla that TURKTRUST,
a certificate authority in Mozilla's root program, had
mis-issued two intermediate certificates to customers.
The issue was not specific to Firefox but there was
evidence that one of the certificates was used for
man-in-the-middle (MITM) traffic management of domain
names that the customer did not legitimately own or
control. This issue was resolved by revoking the trust
for these specific mis-issued certificates.
(CVE-2013-0743)

without introducing additional issues.
