Synopsis

The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.

Description

MozillaFirefox was updated to the 3.0.13 release, fixing some security issues and bugs :

- Security researcher Juan Pablo Lopez Yacubian reported that an attacker could call window.open() on an invalid URL which looks similar to a legitimate URL and then use document.write() to place content within the new document, appearing to have come from the spoofed location. Additionally, if the spoofed document was created by a document with a valid SSL certificate, the SSL indicators would be carried over into the spoofed document. An attacker could use these issues to display misleading location and SSL information for a malicious web page. (MFSA 2009-44 / CVE-2009-2654)

- The browser engine in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.13, and 3.5.x before 3.5.2, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors related to the TraceRecorder::snapshot function in js/src/jstracer.cpp, and unspecified other vectors.
(MFSA 2009-45 / CVE-2009-2662)

- libvorbis before r16182, as used in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.13 and 3.5.x before 3.5.2 and other products, allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted .ogg file.
(CVE-2009-2663 / MFSA 2009-45)

- The js_watch_set function in js/src/jsdbgapi.cpp in the JavaScript engine in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.13, and 3.5.x before 3.5.2, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (assertion failure and application exit) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted .js file, related to a 'memory safety bug.'.
(CVE-2009-2664 / MFSA 2009-45)
