SeaMonkey 2.x < 2.9.0 Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 6791
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 2.x earlier than 2.9.0 are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- An error exists with the handling of JavaScript errors that can lead to information disclosure. (CVE-2011-1187)

- An off-by-one error exists in the 'OpenType Sanitizer' that can lead to out-bounds-reads and possible code execution. (CVE-2011-3062)

- Memory safety issues exist which could lead to arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2012-0467, CVE-2012-0468)

- A use-after-free error exists related to 'IDBKeyRange' of 'indexedDB'. (CVE-2012-0469)

- Heap-corruption errors exist related to 'gfxImageSurface' which can lead to possible code execution. (CVE-2012-0470)

- A multi-octet encoding issue exists which could allow cross-site scripting attacks as certain octets in multibyte character sets can destroy following octets.

(CVE-2012-0471)

- An error exists related to font rendering with 'cairo- dwrite' which can cause memory corruption leading to crashes and potentially code execution. (CVE-2012-0472)

- An error exists in 'WebGLBuffer' that can lead to the reading of illegal video memory. (CVE-2012-0473)

- An unspecified error can allow URL bar spoofing. (CVE-2012-0474)

- IPv6 addresses and cross-site 'XHR' or 'WebSocket' connections on non-standard ports can allow this application to send ambiguous origin headers. (CVE-2012-0475)

- A decoding issue exists related to 'ISO-2022-KR' and 'ISO-2022-CN' character sets which could lead to cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2012-0477)

- An error exists related to 'WebGL' and 'texImage2D' that can allow application crashes and possibly code execution when 'JSVAL_TO_OBJECT' is used on ordinary objects. (CVE-2012-0478)

- Address bar spoofing is possible when 'Atom XML' or 'RSS' data is loaded over HTTPS leading to phishing attacks. (CVE-2012-0479)

Solution

Upgrade to SeaMonkey 2.9.0 or later.
