An update that fixes 12 vulnerabilities is now available.

It includes four new package versions.

 

Description:

 

 

MozillaFirefox has been updated to the 17.0.5ESR release

fixing bugs and security issues.

 

Also Mozilla NSS has been updated to version 3.14.3 and

Mozilla NSPR to 4.9.6.

 

*

 

MFSA 2013-30: Mozilla developers identified and fixed

several memory safety bugs in the browser engine used in

Firefox and other Mozilla-based products. Some of these

bugs showed evidence of memory corruption under certain

circumstances, and we presume that with enough effort at

least some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary

code.

 

Olli Pettay, Jesse Ruderman, Boris Zbarsky, Christian

Holler, Milan Sreckovic, and Joe Drew reported memory

safety problems and crashes that affect Firefox ESR 17, and

Firefox 19. (CVE-2013-0788)

 

Andrew McCreight, Randell Jesup, Gary Kwong, Jesse

Ruderman, Christian Holler, and Mats Palmgren reported

memory safety problems and crashes that affect Firefox 19.

(CVE-2013-0789)

 

Jim Chen reported a memory safety problem that

affects Firefox for Android

 

*

 

(CVE-2013-0790)

 

*

 

MFSA 2013-31 / CVE-2013-0800: Security researcher

Abhishek Arya (Inferno) of the Google Chrome Security Team

used the Address Sanitizer tool to discover an

out-of-bounds write in Cairo graphics library. When certain

values are passed to it during rendering, Cairo attempts to

use negative boundaries or sizes for boxes, leading to a

potentially exploitable crash in some instances.

 

*

 

MFSA 2013-32 / CVE-2013-0799: Security researcher

Frederic Hoguin discovered that the Mozilla Maintenance

Service on Windows was vulnerable to a buffer overflow.

This system is used to update software without invoking the

User Account Control (UAC) prompt. The Mozilla Maintenance

Service is configured to allow unprivileged users to start

it with arbitrary arguments. By manipulating the data

passed in these arguments, an attacker can execute

arbitrary code with the system privileges used by the

service. This issue requires local file system access to be

exploitable.

 

*

 

MFSA 2013-33 / CVE-2013-0798: Security researcher

Shuichiro Suzuki of the Fourteenforty Research Institute

reported the app_tmp directory is set to be world readable

and writeable by Firefox for Android. This potentially

allows for third party applications to replace or alter

Firefox add-ons when downloaded because they are

temporarily stored in the app_tmp directory before

installation.

 

This vulnerability only affects Firefox for Android.

 

*

 

MFSA 2013-34 / CVE-2013-0797: Security researcher Ash

reported an issue with the Mozilla Updater. The Mozilla

Updater can be made to load a malicious local DLL file in a

privileged context through either the Mozilla Maintenance

Service or independently on systems that do not use the

service. This occurs when the DLL file is placed in a

specific location on the local system before the Mozilla

Updater is run. Local file system access is necessary in

order for this issue to be exploitable.

 

*

 

MFSA 2013-35 / CVE-2013-0796: Security researcher

miaubiz used the Address Sanitizer tool to discover a crash

in WebGL rendering when memory is freed that has not

previously been allocated. This issue only affects Linux

users who have Intel Mesa graphics drivers. The resulting

crash could be potentially exploitable.

 

*

 

MFSA 2013-36 / CVE-2013-0795: Security researcher

Cody Crews reported a mechanism to use the cloneNode method

to bypass System Only Wrappers (SOW) and clone a protected

node. This allows violation of the browser's same origin

policy and could also lead to privilege escalation and the

execution of arbitrary code.

 

*

 

MFSA 2013-37 / CVE-2013-0794: Security researcher

shutdown reported a method for removing the origin

indication on tab-modal dialog boxes in combination with

browser navigation. This could allow an attacker's dialog

to overlay a page and show another site's content. This can

be used for phishing by allowing users to enter data into a

modal prompt dialog on an attacking, site while appearing

to be from the displayed site.

 

*

 

MFSA 2013-38 / CVE-2013-079: Security researcher

Mariusz Mlynski reported a method to use browser

navigations through history to load an arbitrary website

with that page's baseURI property pointing to another site

instead of the seemingly loaded one. The user will continue

to see the incorrect site in the addressbar of the browser.

This allows for a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack or the

theft of data through a phishing attack.

 

*

 

MFSA 2013-39 / CVE-2013-0792: Mozilla community

member Tobias Schula reported that if

gfx.color_management.enablev4 preference is enabled

manually in about:config, some grayscale PNG images will be

rendered incorrectly and cause memory corruption during PNG

decoding when certain color profiles are in use. A crafted

PNG image could use this flaw to leak data through rendered

images drawing from random memory. By default, this

preference is not enabled.

 

*

 

MFSA 2013-40 / CVE-2013-0791: Mozilla community

member Ambroz Bizjak reported an out-of-bounds array read

in the CERT_DecodeCertPackage function of the Network

Security Services (NSS) libary when decoding a certificate.

When this occurs, it will lead to memory corruption and a

non-exploitable crash.
