SeaMonkey < 1.1.8 Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Plugin ID 30210
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

A web browser on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The installed version of SeaMonkey is affected by various security issues :

- Several stability bugs leading to crashes which, in some cases, show traces of memory corruption

- Several file input focus stealing vulnerabilities that could result in uploading of arbitrary files provided their full path and file names are known.

- Several issues that allow scripts from page content to escape from their sandboxed context and/or run with chrome privileges, resulting in privilege escalation, XSS, and/or remote code execution.

- A directory traversal vulnerability via the 'chrome:' URI.

- A vulnerability involving 'designMode' frames that may result in web browsing history and forward navigation stealing.

- An information disclosure issue in the BMP decoder.

- Mis-handling of locally-saved plaintext files.

- Possible disclosure of sensitive URL parameters, such as session tokens, via the .href property of stylesheet DOM nodes reflecting the final URI of the stylesheet after following any 302 redirects.

- A heap-based buffer overflow that can be triggered when viewing an email with an external MIME body.

- Multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities related to character encoding.

Solution

Upgrade to SeaMonkey 1.1.8 or later.
