openSUSE 10 Security Update : MozillaFirefox (MozillaFirefox-5812)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 34957

Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

This update brings the Mozilla Firefox browser to version 2.0.0.18.

It fixes following security issues :

CVE-2008-0017 / MFSA 2008-54 :

The http-index-format MIME type parser (nsDirIndexParser) in Firefox 3.x before 3.0.4, Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 does not check for an allocation failure, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via an HTTP index response with a crafted 200 header, which triggers memory corruption and a buffer overflow.

CVE-2008-5012 / MFSA 2008-48: Mozilla Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18, Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 do not properly change the source URI when processing a canvas element and an HTTP redirect, which allows remote attackers to bypass the same origin policy and access arbitrary images that are not directly accessible to the attacker. NOTE: this issue can be leveraged to enumerate software on the client by performing redirections related to moz-icon.

CVE-2008-5013 / MFSA 2008-49 :

Mozilla Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18 and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 do not properly check when the Flash module has been dynamically unloaded properly, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted SWF file that 'dynamically unloads itself from an outside JavaScript function,' which triggers an access of an expired memory address.

CVE-2008-5014 / MFSA 2008-50

jslock.cpp in Mozilla Firefox 3.x before 3.0.2, Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18, Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code by modifying the window.__proto__.__proto__ object in a way that causes a lock on a non-native object, which triggers an assertion failure related to the OBJ_IS_NATIVE function.

CVE-2008-5015 / MFSA 2008-51 :

Mozilla Firefox 3.x before 3.0.4 assigns chrome privileges to a file:
URI when it is accessed in the same tab from a chrome or privileged about: page, which makes it easier for user-assisted attackers to execute arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges via malicious code in a file that has already been saved on the local system.

CVE-2008-5016 / MFSA 2008-52 :

The layout engine in Mozilla Firefox 3.x before 3.0.4, Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via multiple vectors that trigger an assertion failure or other consequences.

CVE-2008-5017 / MFSA 2008-52: Integer overflow in xpcom/io/nsEscape.cpp in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox 3.x before 3.0.4, Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18, Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via unknown vectors.

CVE-2008-5018 / MFSA 2008-52: The JavaScript engine in Mozilla Firefox 3.x before 3.0.4, Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18, Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via vectors related to 'insufficient class checking' in the Date class. CVE-2008-5019 / MFSA 2008-53: The session restore feature in Mozilla Firefox 3.x before 3.0.4 and 2.x before 2.0.0.18 allows remote attackers to violate the same origin policy to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks and execute arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges via unknown vectors.
CVE-2008-5021 / MFSA 2008-55: nsFrameManager in Firefox 3.x before 3.0.4, Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18, Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code by modifying properties of a file input element while it is still being initialized, then using the blur method to access uninitialized memory.

CVE-2008-5022 / MFSA 2008-56: The nsXMLHttpRequest::NotifyEventListeners method in Firefox 3.x before 3.0.4, Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18, Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 allows remote attackers to bypass the same-origin policy and execute arbitrary script via multiple listeners, which bypass the inner window check.

CVE-2008-5023 / MFSA 2008-57: Firefox 3.x before 3.0.4, Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 allows remote attackers to bypass the protection mechanism for codebase principals and execute arbitrary script via the -moz-binding CSS property in a signed JAR file.

CVE-2008-5024 / MFSA 2008-58: Mozilla Firefox 3.x before 3.0.4, Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18, Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 do not properly escape quote characters used for XML processing, allows remote attackers to conduct XML injection attacks via the default namespace in an E4X document.

CVE-2008-5052 / MFSA 2008-52: The AppendAttributeValue function in the JavaScript engine in Mozilla Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18, Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via unknown vectors that trigger memory corruption, as demonstrated by e4x/extensions/regress-410192.js.
