high Nessus Plugin ID 197544

Language:

Synopsis

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

Description

The remote SUSE Linux SLES12 / SLES_SAP12 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the SUSE-SU-2024:1676-1 advisory.

- The permission prompt input delay could expire while the window is not in focus. This makes it vulnerable to clickjacking by malicious websites. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 124, Firefox ESR < 115.10, and Thunderbird < 115.10. (CVE-2024-2609)

- There was no limit to the number of HTTP/2 CONTINUATION frames that would be processed. A server could abuse this to create an Out of Memory condition in the browser. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 125, Firefox ESR < 115.10, and Thunderbird < 115.10. (CVE-2024-3302)

- GetBoundName could return the wrong version of an object when JIT optimizations were applied. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 125, Firefox ESR < 115.10, and Thunderbird < 115.10. (CVE-2024-3852)

- In some code patterns the JIT incorrectly optimized switch statements and generated code with out-of- bounds-reads. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 125, Firefox ESR < 115.10, and Thunderbird < 115.10.
(CVE-2024-3854)

- The JIT created incorrect code for arguments in certain cases. This led to potential use-after-free crashes during garbage collection. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 125, Firefox ESR < 115.10, and Thunderbird < 115.10. (CVE-2024-3857)

- On 32-bit versions there were integer-overflows that led to an out-of-bounds-read that potentially could be triggered by a malformed OpenType font. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 125, Firefox ESR < 115.10, and Thunderbird < 115.10. (CVE-2024-3859)

- If an AlignedBuffer were assigned to itself, the subsequent self-move could result in an incorrect reference count and later use-after-free. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 125, Firefox ESR < 115.10, and Thunderbird < 115.10. (CVE-2024-3861)

- The executable file warning was not presented when downloading .xrm-ms files. *Note: This issue only affected Windows operating systems. Other operating systems are unaffected.* This vulnerability affects Firefox < 125, Firefox ESR < 115.10, and Thunderbird < 115.10. (CVE-2024-3863)

- Memory safety bug present in Firefox 124, Firefox ESR 115.9, and Thunderbird 115.9. This bug showed evidence of memory corruption and we presume that with enough effort this could have been exploited to run arbitrary code. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 125, Firefox ESR < 115.10, and Thunderbird < 115.10.
(CVE-2024-3864)

- A type check was missing when handling fonts in PDF.js, which would allow arbitrary JavaScript execution in the PDF.js context. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 126, Firefox ESR < 115.11, and Thunderbird < 115.11. (CVE-2024-4367)

- If the `browser.privatebrowsing.autostart` preference is enabled, IndexedDB files were not properly deleted when the window was closed. This preference is disabled by default in Firefox. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 126, Firefox ESR < 115.11, and Thunderbird < 115.11. (CVE-2024-4767)

- A bug in popup notifications' interaction with WebAuthn made it easier for an attacker to trick a user into granting permissions. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 126, Firefox ESR < 115.11, and Thunderbird < 115.11. (CVE-2024-4768)

- When importing resources using Web Workers, error messages would distinguish the difference between `application/javascript` responses and non-script responses. This could have been abused to learn information cross-origin. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 126, Firefox ESR < 115.11, and Thunderbird < 115.11. (CVE-2024-4769)

- When saving a page to PDF, certain font styles could have led to a potential use-after-free crash. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 126, Firefox ESR < 115.11, and Thunderbird < 115.11. (CVE-2024-4770)

- Memory safety bugs present in Firefox 125, Firefox ESR 115.10, and Thunderbird 115.10. Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory corruption and we presume that with enough effort some of these could have been exploited to run arbitrary code. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 126, Firefox ESR < 115.11, and Thunderbird < 115.11. (CVE-2024-4777)

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

Solution

Update the affected MozillaFirefox, MozillaFirefox-devel and / or MozillaFirefox-translations-common packages.
