Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : firefox (MDVSA-2010:210)

High Nessus Plugin ID 50314

Synopsis

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

Description

Security issues were identified and fixed in firefox :

Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.14 and 3.6.x before 3.6.11, Thunderbird before 3.0.9 and 3.1.x before 3.1.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.9 recognize a wildcard IP address in the subject's Common Name field of an X.509 certificate, which might allow man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof arbitrary SSL servers via a crafted certificate issued by a legitimate Certification Authority (CVE-2010-3170).

The SSL implementation in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.14 and 3.6.x before 3.6.11, Thunderbird before 3.0.9 and 3.1.x before 3.1.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.9 does not properly set the minimum key length for Diffie-Hellman Ephemeral (DHE) mode, which makes it easier for remote attackers to defeat cryptographic protection mechanisms via a brute-force attack (CVE-2010-3173).

Unspecified vulnerability in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox 3.5.x before 3.5.14, Thunderbird before 3.0.9, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.9 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors (CVE-2010-3174, CVE-2010-3175, CVE-2010-3176).

Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in the Gopher parser in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.14 and 3.6.x before 3.6.11, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.9, allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via a crafted name of a (1) file or (2) directory on a Gopher server (CVE-2010-3177).

Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.14 and 3.6.x before 3.6.11, Thunderbird before 3.0.9 and 3.1.x before 3.1.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.9 do not properly handle certain modal calls made by javascript: URLs in circumstances related to opening a new window and performing cross-domain navigation, which allows remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy via a crafted HTML document (CVE-2010-3178).

Stack-based buffer overflow in the text-rendering functionality in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.14 and 3.6.x before 3.6.11, Thunderbird before 3.0.9 and 3.1.x before 3.1.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.9 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) via a long argument to the document.write method (CVE-2010-3179).

Use-after-free vulnerability in the nsBarProp function in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.14 and 3.6.x before 3.6.11, Thunderbird before 3.0.9 and 3.1.x before 3.1.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.9 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code by accessing the locationbar property of a closed window (CVE-2010-3180).

A certain application-launch script in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.14 and 3.6.x before 3.6.11, Thunderbird before 3.0.9 and 3.1.x before 3.1.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.9 on Linux places a zero-length directory name in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH, which allows local users to gain privileges via a Trojan horse shared library in the current working directory (CVE-2010-3182).

The LookupGetterOrSetter function in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.14 and 3.6.x before 3.6.11, Thunderbird before 3.0.9 and 3.1.x before 3.1.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.9 does not properly support window.__lookupGetter__ function calls that lack arguments, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (incorrect pointer dereference and application crash) via a crafted HTML document (CVE-2010-3183).
