Debian DSA-2572-1 : iceape - several vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Plugin ID 62805
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Iceape, an internet suite based on SeaMonkey :

- CVE-2012-3982 Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors.

- CVE-2012-3986 Icedove does not properly restrict calls to DOMWindowUtils methods, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions via crafted JavaScript code.

- CVE-2012-3990 A Use-after-free vulnerability in the IME State Manager implementation allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors, related to the nsIContent::GetNameSpaceID function.

- CVE-2012-3991 Icedove does not properly restrict JSAPI access to the GetProperty function, which allows remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy and possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted website.

- CVE-2012-4179 A use-after-free vulnerability in the nsHTMLCSSUtils::CreateCSSPropertyTxn function allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) via unspecified vectors.

- CVE-2012-4180 A heap-based buffer overflow in the nsHTMLEditor::IsPrevCharInNodeWhitespace function allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors.

- CVE-2012-4182 A use-after-free vulnerability in the nsTextEditRules::WillInsert function allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) via unspecified vectors.

- CVE-2012-4186 A heap-based buffer overflow in the nsWav-eReader::DecodeAudioData function allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors.

- CVE-2012-4188 A heap-based buffer overflow in the Convolve3x3 function allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors.

Additionally, this update fixes a regression in the patch for CVE-2012-3959, released in DSA-2554-1.

Solution

Upgrade the iceape packages.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version 2.0.11-16.
