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 website (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).

Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox 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-2011-2997).

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 website, 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).

Almost Native Graphics Layer Engine (ANGLE), as used in Mozilla Firefox before 7.0 and SeaMonkey before 2.4, does not validate the return value of a GrowAtomTable function call, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors that trigger a memory-allocation error and a resulting buffer overflow (CVE-2011-3002).

Mozilla Firefox before 7.0 and SeaMonkey before 2.4 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via an unspecified WebGL test case that triggers a memory-allocation error and a resulting out-of-bounds write operation (CVE-2011-3003).

The JSSubScriptLoader in Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 6 and SeaMonkey before 2.4 does not properly handle XPCNativeWrappers during calls to the loadSubScript method in an add-on, which makes it easier for remote attackers to gain privileges via a crafted website that leverages certain unwrapping behavior (CVE-2011-3004).

Use-after-free vulnerability in Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 6, Thunderbird before 7.0, and SeaMonkey before 2.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via crafted OGG headers in a .ogg file (CVE-2011-3005).

YARR, as used in Mozilla Firefox before 7.0, Thunderbird before 7.0, and SeaMonkey before 2.4, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via crafted JavaScript (CVE-2011-3232).

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).

Solution

Update the affected packages.
