SeaMonkey 2.x < 2.4.0 Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 6030
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 host has a web browser installed that is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

Versions of SeaMonkey earlier than 2.4.0 are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- If an attacker could trick a user into holding down the 'Enter' key, via a malicious game, for example, a malicious application or extension could be downloaded and executed. (CVE-2011-2372, CVE-2011-3001)

- Unspecified errors exist that can be exploited to corrupt memory. No additional information is available at this time. (CVE-2011-2995, CVE-2011-2997)

- A weakness exists when handling the 'Location' header. This can be lead to response splitting attacks when visiting a vulnerable web server. The same fix has been applied to the headers 'Content-Length' and 'Content-Disposition'. (CVE-2011-3000)

- An error exists with WebGL's ANGLE library. It does not properly check for return values from the 'GrowAtomTable()' function. This vulnerability can be exploited to cause a buffer overflow by sending a series of requests. Additionally, an unspecified error exists within WebGL that can be exploited to corrupt memory. (CVE-2011-3002, CVE-2011-3003)

- There is an error within the JSSubScriptLoader that incorrectly unwraps 'XPCNativeWrappers'. By tricking a user into installing a malicious plug-in, an attacker could exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2011-3004)

- A use-after-free error exists when parsing OGG headers. (CVE-2011-3005)

- There is an unspecified error within the YARR regular expression library that can be exploited to corrupt memory. (CVE-2011-3232)

Solution

Upgrade to SeaMonkey 2.4.0 or later.
