Synopsis

The remote Amazon Linux 2 host is missing a security update.

Description

When an inner window is reused, it does not consider the use of document.domain for cross-origin protections. If pages on different subdomains ever cooperatively use document.domain, then either page can abuse this to inject script into arbitrary pages on the other subdomain, even those that did not use document.domain to relax their origin security. This vulnerability affects Firefox ESR, Firefox, and Thunderbird. (CVE-2019-11711)

Mozilla developers and community members reported memory safety bugs present in Firefox and Firefox ESR. 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 Firefox ESR and Thunderbird. (CVE-2019-11709)

A vulnerability exists where the caret ('^') character is improperly escaped constructing some URIs due to it being used as a separator, allowing for possible spoofing of origin attributes. This vulnerability affects Firefox ESR, Firefox, and Thunderbird.
(CVE-2019-11717)

As part of a winning Pwn2Own entry, a researcher demonstrated a sandbox escape by installing a malicious language pack and then opening a browser feature that used the compromised translation. This vulnerability affects Firefox ESR, Firefox, and Thunderbird.
(CVE-2019-9811)

A use-after-free vulnerability can occur in HTTP/2 when a cached HTTP/2 stream is closed while still in use, resulting in a potentially exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Firefox ESR, Firefox, and Thunderbird. (CVE-2019-11713)

A vulnerability exists where if a user opens a locally saved HTML file, this file can use file: URIs to access other files in the same directory or sub-directories if the names are known or guessed. The Fetch API can then be used to read the contents of any files stored in these directories and they may uploaded to a server. It was demonstrated that in combination with a popular Android messaging app, if a malicious HTML attachment is sent to a user and they opened that attachment in Firefox, due to that app's predictable pattern for locally-saved file names, it is possible to read attachments the victim received from other correspondents. This vulnerability affects Firefox ESR, Firefox, and Thunderbird. (CVE-2019-11730)

Due to an error while parsing page content, it is possible for properly sanitized user input to be misinterpreted and lead to XSS hazards on websites in certain circumstances. This vulnerability affects Firefox, Firefox, and Thunderbird. (CVE-2019-11715)
