SeaMonkey < 2.9.0 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 58901

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 8.8

Synopsis

The remote Windows host contains a web browser that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The installed version of SeaMonkey is earlier than 2.9.0. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- An error exists with the handling of JavaScript errors that can lead to information disclosure. (CVE-2011-1187)

- An off-by-one error exists in the 'OpenType Sanitizer' that can lead to out-bounds-reads and possible code execution. (CVE-2011-3062)

- Memory safety issues exist which could lead to arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2012-0467, CVE-2012-0468)

- A use-after-free error exists related to 'IDBKeyRange' of 'indexedDB'. (CVE-2012-0469)

- Heap-corruption errors exist related to 'gfxImageSurface' which can lead to possible code execution. (CVE-2012-0470)

- A multi-octet encoding issue exists which could allow cross-site scripting attacks as certain octets in multibyte character sets can destroy following octets.
(CVE-2012-0471)

- An error exists related to font rendering with 'cairo- dwrite' which can cause memory corruption leading to crashes and potentially code execution. (CVE-2012-0472)

- An error exists in 'WebGLBuffer' that can lead to the reading of illegal video memory. (CVE-2012-0473)

- An unspecified error can allow URL bar spoofing.
(CVE-2012-0474)

- IPv6 addresses and cross-site 'XHR' or 'WebSocket' connections on non-standard ports can allow this application to send ambiguous origin headers. (CVE-2012-0475)

- A decoding issue exists related to 'ISO-2022-KR' and 'ISO-2022-CN' character sets which could lead to cross- site scripting attacks. (CVE-2012-0477)
- An error exists related to 'WebGL' and 'texImage2D' that can allow application crashes and possibly code execution when 'JSVAL_TO_OBJECT' is used on ordinary objects. (CVE-2012-0478)

- Address bar spoofing is possible when 'Atom XML' or 'RSS' data is loaded over HTTPS leading to phishing attacks. (CVE-2012-0479)

Solution

Upgrade to SeaMonkey 2.9.0 or later.
