Detail

Product: OpenSolaris

Multiple security vulnerabilities with varying impacts affect Firefox (see firefox(1)) versions prior to 3.5.3 as shipped with OpenSolaris. These vulnerabilities may allow an unprivileged remote user to crash the Firefox application or possibly execute arbitrary code on the system where Firefox is being run, resulting in a Denial of service (DoS). Further vulnerabilities may allow a remote user to mislead a Firefox user into incorrectly trusting a site by providing a URL in the location bar which may appear to be another URL, or to compromise the cryptography features that are active within the browser application.

The following Mozilla advisories describe the vulnerabilities:


The following are the CVE identifiers that pertain to these security issues:

Title: USN-821-1 -- firefox-3.0, xulrunner-1.9 vulnerabilities
Description: Several flaws were discovered in the Firefox browser and JavaScript engines. If a user were tricked into viewing a malicious website, a remote attacker could cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. Jesse Ruderman and Dan Kaminsky discovered that Firefox did not adequately inform users when security modules were added or removed via PKCS11. If a user visited a malicious website, an attacker could exploit this to trick the user into installing a malicious PKCS11 module. It was discovered that Firefox did not properly manage memory when using XUL tree elements. If a user were tricked into viewing a malicious website, a remote attacker could cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. Juan Pablo Lopez Yacubian discovered that Firefox did properly display certain Unicode characters in the location bar and other text fields when using a certain non-Ubuntu font. If a user configured Firefox to use this font, an attacker could exploit this to spoof the location bar, such as in a phishing attack. It was discovered that the BrowserFeedWriter in Firefox could be subverted to run JavaScript code from web content with elevated chrome privileges. If a user were tricked into viewing a malicious website, an attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program

Title: DSA-1886-1 iceweasel -- several
Description: Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Iceweasel web browser, an unbranded version of the Firefox browser. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems: CVE-2009-3079 "moz_bug_r_a4" discovered that a programming error in the FeedWriter module could lead to the execution of Javascript code with elevated privileges. CVE-2009-1310 Prateek Saxena discovered a cross-site scripting vulnerability in the MozSearch plugin interface. For the stable distribution, these problems have been fixed in version 3.0.6-3. As indicated in the Etch release notes, security support for the Mozilla products in the oldstable distribution needed to be stopped before the end of the regular Etch security maintenance life cycle. You are strongly encouraged to upgrade to stable or switch to a still supported browser. For the unstable distribution, these problems have been fixed in version 3.0.14-1. For the experimental distribution, these problems have been fixed in version 3.5.3-1. We recommend that you upgrade your iceweasel packages.

Title: DSA-1885-1 xulrunner -- several
Description: Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in Xulrunner, a runtime environment for XUL applications, such as the Iceweasel web browser. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems: CVE-2009-3070 Jesse Ruderman discovered crashes in the layout engine, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code. CVE-2009-3071 Daniel Holbert, Jesse Ruderman, Olli Pettay and "toshi" discovered crashes in the layout engine, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code. CVE-2009-3072 Josh Soref, Jesse Ruderman and Martin Wargers discovered crashes in the layout engine, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code. CVE-2009-3074 Jesse Ruderman discovered a crash in the Javascript engine, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code. CVE-2009-3075 Carsten Book and "Taral" discovered crashes in the layout engine, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code. CVE-2009-3076 Jesse Ruderman discovered that the user interface for installing/ removing PCKS #11 securiy modules wasn’t informative enough, which might allow social engineering attacks. CVE-2009-3077 It was discovered that incorrect pointer handling in the XUL parser could lead to the execution of arbitrary code. CVE-2009-3078 Juan Pablo Lopez Yacubian discovered that incorrent rendering of some Unicode font characters could lead to spoofing attacks on the location bar. For the stable distribution, these problems have been fixed in version 1.9.0.14-0lenny1. As indicated in the Etch release notes, security support for the Mozilla products in the oldstable distribution needed to be stopped before the end of the regular Etch security maintenance life cycle. You are strongly encouraged to upgrade to stable or switch to a still supported browser. For the unstable distribution, these problems have been fixed in version 1.9.0.14-1. For the experimental distribution, these problems have been fixed in version 1.9.1.3-1. We recommend that you upgrade your xulrunner package.

Title: DSA-1885 xulrunner -- several vulnerabilities
Description: Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in Xulrunner, a runtime environment for XUL applications, such as the Iceweasel web browser. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems: Jesse Ruderman discovered crashes in the layout engine, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code. Daniel Holbert, Jesse Ruderman, Olli Pettay and "toshi" discovered crashes in the layout engine, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code. Josh Soref, Jesse Ruderman and Martin Wargers discovered crashes in the layout engine, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code. Jesse Ruderman discovered a crash in the Javascript engine, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code. Carsten Book and "Taral" discovered crashes in the layout engine, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code. Jesse Ruderman discovered that the user interface for installing/ removing PCKS #11 securiy modules wasn't informative enough, which might allow social engineering attacks. It was discovered that incorrect pointer handling in the XUL parser could lead to the execution of arbitrary code. Juan Pablo Lopez Yacubian discovered that incorrent rendering of some Unicode font characters could lead to spoofing attacks on the location bar.
