Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : firefox (MDVSA-2011:139)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 56373

Synopsis

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

Description

Security issues were identified and fixed in mozilla firefox and thunderbird :

Mozilla Firefox before 3.6.23 and 4.x through 6, Thunderbird before 7.0, and SeaMonkey before 2.4 do not prevent the starting of a download in response to the holding of the Enter key, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions via a crafted web site (CVE-2011-2372).

Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox before 3.6.23 and 4.x through 6, Thunderbird before 7.0, and SeaMonkey before 2.4 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors (CVE-2011-2995).

Unspecified vulnerability in the plugin API in Mozilla Firefox 3.6.x before 3.6.23 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors (CVE-2011-2996).

Integer underflow in Mozilla Firefox 3.6.x before 3.6.23 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via JavaScript code containing a large RegExp expression (CVE-2011-2998).

Mozilla Firefox before 3.6.23 and 4.x through 5, Thunderbird before 6.0, and SeaMonkey before 2.3 do not properly handle location as the name of a frame, which allows remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy via a crafted web site, a different vulnerability than CVE-2010-0170 (CVE-2011-2999).

Mozilla Firefox before 3.6.23 and 4.x through 6, Thunderbird before 7.0, and SeaMonkey before 2.4 do not properly handle HTTP responses that contain multiple Location, Content-Length, or Content-Disposition headers, which makes it easier for remote attackers to conduct HTTP response splitting attacks via crafted header values (CVE-2011-3000).

Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 6, Thunderbird before 7.0, and SeaMonkey before 2.4 do not prevent manual add-on installation in response to the holding of the Enter key, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions via a crafted web site that triggers an unspecified internal error (CVE-2011-3001).

Integer underflow in Mozilla Firefox 3.6.x before 3.6.23 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via JavaScript code containing a large RegExp expression (CVE-2011-3867).
