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 :

Heap-based buffer overflow in the utf16_to_isolatin1 function in Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 12.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.5, Thunderbird 5.0 through 12.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.10 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via vectors that trigger a character-set conversion failure (CVE-2012-1947)

Use-after-free vulnerability in the nsFrameList::FirstChild function in Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 12.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.5, Thunderbird 5.0 through 12.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.10 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption and application crash) by changing the size of a container of absolutely positioned elements in a column (CVE-2012-1940).

Heap-based buffer overflow in the nsHTMLReflowState::CalculateHypotheticalBox function in Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 12.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.5, Thunderbird 5.0 through 12.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.10 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code by resizing a window displaying absolutely positioned and relatively positioned elements in nested columns (CVE-2012-1941).

Use-after-free vulnerability in the nsINode::ReplaceOrInsertBefore function in Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 12.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.5, Thunderbird 5.0 through 12.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.10 might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via document changes involving replacement or insertion of a node (CVE-2012-1946).

Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 12.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.5, Thunderbird 5.0 through 12.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.10 allow local users to obtain sensitive information via an HTML document that loads a shortcut (aka .lnk) file for display within an IFRAME element, as demonstrated by a network share implemented by (1) Microsoft Windows or (2) Samba (CVE-2012-1945).

The Content Security Policy (CSP) implementation in Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 12.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.5, Thunderbird 5.0 through 12.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.10 does not block inline event handlers, which makes it easier for remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via a crafted HTML document (CVE-2012-1944).

Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox before 13.0, Thunderbird before 13.0, and SeaMonkey before 2.10 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors related to (1) methodjit/ImmutableSync.cpp, (2) the JSObject::makeDenseArraySlow function in js/src/jsarray.cpp, and unknown other components (CVE-2012-1938).

jsinfer.cpp in Mozilla Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.5 and Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.5 does not properly determine data types, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via crafted JavaScript code (CVE-2012-1939).

Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 12.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.5, Thunderbird 5.0 through 12.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.10 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors (CVE-2012-1937).

Ken Russell of Google reported a bug in NVIDIA graphics drivers that they needed to work around in the Chromium WebGL implementation.
Mozilla has done the same in Firefox 13 and ESR 10.0.5 (CVE-2011-3101).

The ASN.1 decoder in the QuickDER decoder in Mozilla Network Security Services (NSS) before 3.13.4, as used in Firefox 4.x through 12.0, Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.5, Thunderbird 5.0 through 12.0, Thunderbird ESR 10.x before 10.0.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.10, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a zero-length item, as demonstrated by (1) a zero-length basic constraint or (2) a zero-length field in an OCSP response (CVE-2012-0441). NOTE: This flaw was addressed earlier with the MDVA-2012:036 advisory.

The mozilla firefox and thunderbird packages has been upgraded to the latest respective versions which is unaffected by these security flaws.

Additionally the NSPR and the NSS packages has been upgraded to the latest versions which resolves various upstream bugs.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
