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

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Security issues were identified and fixed in firefox and mozilla-thinderbird :

Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.12 and 3.6.x before 3.6.9, Thunderbird before 3.0.7 and 3.1.x before 3.1.3, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.7 do not properly restrict read access to the statusText property of XMLHttpRequest objects, which allows remote attackers to discover the existence of intranet web servers via cross-origin requests (CVE-2010-2764).

Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.12 and 3.6.x before 3.6.9, Thunderbird before 3.0.7 and 3.1.x before 3.1.3, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.7 allows user-assisted remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via a selection that is added to a document in which the designMode property is enabled (CVE-2010-2769).

Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.12 and 3.6.x before 3.6.9, Thunderbird before 3.0.7 and 3.1.x before 3.1.3, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.7 do not properly restrict use of the type attribute of an OBJECT element to set a document's charset, which allows remote attackers to bypass cross-site scripting (XSS) protection mechanisms via UTF-7 encoding (CVE-2010-2768).

The XPCSafeJSObjectWrapper class in the SafeJSObjectWrapper (aka SJOW) implementation in Mozilla Firefox 3.6.x before 3.6.9 and Thunderbird 3.1.x before 3.1.3 does not properly restrict objects at the end of scope chains, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary JavaScript code with chrome privileges via vectors related to a chrome privileged object and a chain ending in an outer object (CVE-2010-2762).

The normalizeDocument function in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.12 and 3.6.x before 3.6.9, Thunderbird before 3.0.7 and 3.1.x before 3.1.3, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.7 does not properly handle the removal of DOM nodes during normalization, which might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via vectors involving access to a deleted object (CVE-2010-2766).

The nsTreeContentView function in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.12 and 3.6.x before 3.6.9, Thunderbird before 3.0.7 and 3.1.x before 3.1.3, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.7 does not properly handle node removal in XUL trees, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via vectors involving access to deleted memory, related to a dangling pointer vulnerability. (CVE-2010-3167)

Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.12 and 3.6.x before 3.6.9, Thunderbird before 3.0.7 and 3.1.x before 3.1.3, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.7 do not properly restrict the role of property changes in triggering XUL tree removal, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (deleted memory access and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code by setting unspecified properties (CVE-2010-3168).

Use-after-free vulnerability in the nsTreeSelection function in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.12 and 3.6.x before 3.6.9, Thunderbird before 3.0.7 and 3.1.x before 3.1.3, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.7 might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via vectors involving a XUL tree selection, related to a dangling pointer vulnerability.
NOTE: this issue exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2010-2753 (CVE-2010-2760).

Integer overflow in the FRAMESET element implementation in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.12 and 3.6.x before 3.6.9, Thunderbird before 3.0.7 and 3.1.x before 3.1.3, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.7 might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a large number of values in the cols (aka columns) attribute, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2010-2765).

Heap-based buffer overflow in the nsTextFrameUtils::TransformText function in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.12 and 3.6.x before 3.6.9, Thunderbird before 3.0.7 and 3.1.x before 3.1.3, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.7 might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a bidirectional text run (CVE-2010-3166).

The navigator.plugins implementation in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.12 and 3.6.x before 3.6.9, Thunderbird before 3.0.7 and 3.1.x before 3.1.3, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.7 does not properly handle destruction of the DOM plugin array, which might allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or execute arbitrary code via crafted access to the navigator object, related to a dangling pointer vulnerability. (CVE-2010-2767)

Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.12 and 3.6.x before 3.6.9, Thunderbird before 3.0.7 and 3.1.x before 3.1.3, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.7 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors (CVE-2010-3169).

Packages for 2008.0 and 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance Program. Please visit this link to learn more:
