NewStart CGSL MAIN 5.04 : firefox Multiple Vulnerabilities (NS-SA-2019-0011)

High Nessus Plugin ID 127160

Synopsis

The remote machine is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote NewStart CGSL host, running version MAIN 5.04, has firefox packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

- Memory safety bugs were reported in Firefox 58 and Firefox ESR 52.6. Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory corruption and we presume that with enough effort that some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.7, Firefox ESR < 52.7, and Firefox < 59. (CVE-2018-5125)

- A buffer overflow can occur when manipulating the SVG animatedPathSegList through script. This results in a potentially exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.7, Firefox ESR < 52.7, and Firefox < 59. (CVE-2018-5127)

- A lack of parameter validation on IPC messages results in a potential out-of-bounds write through malformed IPC messages. This can potentially allow for sandbox escape through memory corruption in the parent process. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.7, Firefox ESR < 52.7, and Firefox < 59. (CVE-2018-5129)

- When packets with a mismatched RTP payload type are sent in WebRTC connections, in some circumstances a potentially exploitable crash is triggered. This vulnerability affects Firefox ESR < 52.7 and Firefox < 59. (CVE-2018-5130)

- Under certain circumstances the fetch() API can return transient local copies of resources that were sent with a no-store or no-cache cache header instead of downloading a copy from the network as it should. This can result in previously stored, locally cached data of a website being accessible to users if they share a common profile while browsing. This vulnerability affects Firefox ESR < 52.7 and Firefox < 59.
(CVE-2018-5131)

- An integer overflow can occur during conversion of text to some Unicode character sets due to an unchecked length parameter. This vulnerability affects Firefox ESR < 52.7 and Thunderbird < 52.7. (CVE-2018-5144)

- Memory safety bugs were reported in Firefox ESR 52.6.
These bugs showed evidence of memory corruption and we presume that with enough effort that some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code. This vulnerability affects Firefox ESR < 52.7 and Thunderbird < 52.7.
(CVE-2018-5145)

- Memory safety bugs were reported in Firefox 57 and Firefox ESR 52.5. Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory corruption and we presume that with enough effort that some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.6, Firefox ESR < 52.6, and Firefox < 58. (CVE-2018-5089)

- A use-after-free vulnerability can occur during WebRTC connections when interacting with the DTMF timers. This results in a potentially exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Firefox ESR < 52.6 and Firefox < 58. (CVE-2018-5091)

- An integer overflow vulnerability in the Skia library when allocating memory for edge builders on some systems with at least 8 GB of RAM. This results in the use of uninitialized memory, resulting in a potentially exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.6, Firefox ESR < 52.6, and Firefox < 58. (CVE-2018-5095)

- A use-after-free vulnerability can occur while editing events in form elements on a page, resulting in a potentially exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Firefox ESR < 52.6 and Thunderbird < 52.6.
(CVE-2018-5096)

- A use-after-free vulnerability can occur during XSL transformations when the source document for the transformation is manipulated by script content during the transformation. This results in a potentially exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.6, Firefox ESR < 52.6, and Firefox < 58. (CVE-2018-5097)

- A use-after-free vulnerability can occur when form input elements, focus, and selections are manipulated by script content. This results in a potentially exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.6, Firefox ESR < 52.6, and Firefox < 58. (CVE-2018-5098)

- A use-after-free vulnerability can occur when the widget listener is holding strong references to browser objects that have previously been freed, resulting in a potentially exploitable crash when these references are used. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.6, Firefox ESR < 52.6, and Firefox < 58. (CVE-2018-5099)

- A use-after-free vulnerability can occur when manipulating HTML media elements with media streams, resulting in a potentially exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.6, Firefox ESR < 52.6, and Firefox < 58. (CVE-2018-5102)

- A use-after-free vulnerability can occur during mouse event handling due to issues with multiprocess support.
This results in a potentially exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.6, Firefox ESR < 52.6, and Firefox < 58. (CVE-2018-5103)

- A use-after-free vulnerability can occur during font face manipulation when a font face is freed while still in use, resulting in a potentially exploitable crash.
This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.6, Firefox ESR < 52.6, and Firefox < 58. (CVE-2018-5104)

- If right-to-left text is used in the addressbar with left-to-right alignment, it is possible in some circumstances to scroll this text to spoof the displayed URL. This issue could result in the wrong URL being displayed as a location, which can mislead users to believe they are on a different site than the one loaded. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.6, Firefox ESR < 52.6, and Firefox < 58. (CVE-2018-5117)

- An out of bounds write flaw was found in the processing of vorbis audio data. A maliciously crafted file or audio stream could cause the application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2018-5146)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
