3. Description:

 

Mozilla Firefox is an open source web browser. XULRunner provides the XUL

Runtime environment for Mozilla Firefox.

 

A web page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or,

potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running

Firefox. (CVE-2012-1948, CVE-2012-1951, CVE-2012-1952, CVE-2012-1953,

CVE-2012-1954, CVE-2012-1958, CVE-2012-1962, CVE-2012-1967)

 

A malicious web page could bypass same-compartment security wrappers (SCSW)

and execute arbitrary code with chrome privileges. (CVE-2012-1959)

 

A flaw in the context menu functionality in Firefox could allow a malicious

website to bypass intended restrictions and allow a cross-site scripting

attack. (CVE-2012-1966)

 

A page different to that in the address bar could be displayed when

dragging and dropping to the address bar, possibly making it easier for a

malicious site or user to perform a phishing attack. (CVE-2012-1950)

 

A flaw in the way Firefox called history.forward and history.back could

allow an attacker to conceal a malicious URL, possibly tricking a user

into believing they are viewing a trusted site. (CVE-2012-1955)

 

A flaw in a parser utility class used by Firefox to parse feeds (such as

RSS) could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary JavaScript with the

privileges of the user running Firefox. This issue could have affected

other browser components or add-ons that assume the class returns

sanitized input. (CVE-2012-1957)

 

A flaw in the way Firefox handled X-Frame-Options headers could allow a

malicious website to perform a clickjacking attack. (CVE-2012-1961)

 

A flaw in the way Content Security Policy (CSP) reports were generated by

Firefox could allow a malicious web page to steal a victim's OAuth 2.0

access tokens and OpenID credentials. (CVE-2012-1963)

 

A flaw in the way Firefox handled certificate warnings could allow a

man-in-the-middle attacker to create a crafted warning, possibly tricking

a user into accepting an arbitrary certificate as trusted. (CVE-2012-1964)

 

A flaw in the way Firefox handled feed:javascript URLs could allow output

filtering to be bypassed, possibly leading to a cross-site scripting

attack. (CVE-2012-1965)

 

The nss update RHBA-2012:0337 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6

introduced a mitigation for the CVE-2011-3389 flaw. For compatibility

reasons, it remains disabled by default in the nss packages. This update

makes Firefox enable the mitigation by default. It can be disabled by

setting the NSS_SSL_CBC_RANDOM_IV environment variable to 0 before

launching Firefox. (BZ#838879)

 

For technical details regarding these flaws, refer to the Mozilla security

advisories for Firefox 10.0.6 ESR. You can find a link to the Mozilla

advisories in the References section of this erratum.

 

Red Hat would like to thank the Mozilla project for reporting these issues.

Upstream acknowledges Benoit Jacob, Jesse Ruderman, Christian Holler, Bill

McCloskey, Abhishek Arya, Arthur Gerkis, Bill Keese, moz_bug_r_a4, Bobby

Holley, Code Audit Labs, Mariusz Mlynski, Mario Heiderich, Frédéric Buclin,

Karthikeyan Bhargavan, Matt McCutchen, Mario Gomes, and Soroush Dalili as

the original reporters of these issues.

 

All Firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain

Firefox version 10.0.6 ESR, which corrects these issues. After installing

the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

 

4. Solution:

 

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata

relevant to your system have been applied.
