Ubuntu 8.04 LTS / 9.10 / 10.04 LTS / 10.10 : firefox, firefox-{3.0,3.5}, xulrunner-1.9.2 regression (USN-1049-2)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 52579

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description

USN-1049-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Firefox and Xulrunner. That update introduced a regression where some Java applets would fail to load.
This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Jesse Ruderman, Igor Bukanov, Olli Pettay, Gary Kwong, Jeff Walden, Henry Sivonen, Martijn Wargers, David Baron and Marcia Knous discovered several memory issues in the browser engine. An attacker could exploit these to crash the browser or possibly run arbitrary code as the user invoking the program. (CVE-2011-0053, CVE-2011-0062)

Zach Hoffman discovered that a recursive call to eval() wrapped in a try/catch statement places the browser into a inconsistent state. An attacker could exploit this to force a user to accept any dialog. (CVE-2011-0051)

It was discovered that memory was used after being freed in a method used by JSON.stringify. An attacker could exploit this to crash the browser or possibly run arbitrary code as the user invoking the program. (CVE-2011-0055)

Christian Holler discovered multiple buffer overflows in the JavaScript engine. An attacker could exploit these to crash the browser or possibly run arbitrary code as the user invoking the program. (CVE-2011-0054, CVE-2011-0056)

Daniel Kozlowski discovered that a JavaScript Worker kept a reference to memory after it was freed. An attacker could exploit this to crash the browser or possibly run arbitrary code as the user invoking the program. (CVE-2011-0057)

Alex Miller discovered a buffer overflow in the browser rendering engine. An attacker could exploit this to crash the browser or possibly run arbitrary code as the user invoking the program. (CVE-2011-0058)

Roberto Suggi Liverani discovered a possible issue with unsafe JavaScript execution in chrome documents. A malicious extension could exploit this to execute arbitrary code with chrome privlieges. (CVE-2010-1585)

Jordi Chancel discovered a buffer overlow in the JPEG decoding engine. An attacker could exploit this to crash the browser or possibly run arbitrary code as the user invoking the program. (CVE-2011-0061)

Peleus Uhley discovered a CSRF vulnerability in the plugin code related to 307 redirects. This could allow custom headers to be forwarded across origins. (CVE-2011-0059).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution
