SeaMonkey < 1.1.14 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 4794

Synopsis

A web browser on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The installed version of SeaMonkey is earlier than 1.1.14. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- There are several stability bugs in the browser engine that may lead to crashes with evidence of memory corruption. (MFSA 2008-60)

- XBL bindings can be used to read data from other domains. (MFSA 2008-61)

- The feed preview still allows for JavaScript privilege escalation. (MFSA 2008-62)

- Sensitive data may be disclosed in an XHR response when an XMLHttpRequest is made to a same-origin resource, which 302 redirects to a resource in a different domain. (MFSA 2008-64)

- A website may be able to access a limited amount of data from a different domain by loading a same-domain JavaScript URL which redirects to an off-domain target resource containing data that is not parsable as JavaScript. (MFSA 2008-65)

- Errors arise when parsing URLs with leading whitespace and control characters. (MFSA 2008-66)

- An escaped null byte is ignored by the CSS parser and treated as if it was not present in the CSS input string. (MFSA 2008-67)

- XSS and JavaScript privilege escalation are possible. (MFSA 2008-68)

- XSS vulnerabilities in SessionStore may allow for violating the browser's same-origin policy and performing an XSS attack or running arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges. (MFSA 2008-69)

Solution

Upgrade to version 1.1.14 or higher.
