includes one version update.

Description:


Mozilla Firefox has been updated to the 17.0.7 ESR version,
which fixes bugs and security fixes.

*

MFSA 2013-49: 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.

Gary Kwong, Jesse Ruderman, and Andrew McCreight
reported memory safety problems and crashes that affect
Firefox ESR 17, and Firefox 21. (CVE-2013-1682)

*

MFSA 2013-50: Security researcher Abhishek Arya
(Inferno) of the Google Chrome Security Team used the
Address Sanitizer tool to discover a series of
use-after-free problems rated critical as security issues
in shipped software. Some of these issues are potentially
exploitable, allowing for remote code execution. We would
also like to thank Abhishek for reporting additional
use-after-free and buffer overflow flaws in code introduced
during Firefox development. These were fixed before general
release.

o Heap-use-after-free in
mozilla::dom::HTMLMediaElement::LookupMediaElementURITable
(CVE-2013-1684) o Heap-use-after-free in
nsIDocument::GetRootElement (CVE-2013-1685) o
Heap-use-after-free in mozilla::ResetDir (CVE-2013-1686)
*

MFSA 2013-51 / CVE-2013-1687: Security researcher
Mariusz Mlynski reported that it is possible to compile a
user-defined function in the XBL scope of a specific
element and then trigger an event within this scope to run
code. In some circumstances, when this code is run, it can
access content protected by System Only Wrappers (SOW) and
chrome-privileged pages. This could potentially lead to
arbitrary code execution. Additionally, Chrome Object
Wrappers (COW) can be bypassed by web content to access
privileged methods, leading to a cross-site scripting (XSS)
attack from privileged pages.

*

MFSA 2013-53 / CVE-2013-1690: Security researcher
Nils reported that specially crafted web content using the
onreadystatechange event and reloading of pages could
sometimes cause a crash when unmapped memory is executed.
This crash is potentially exploitable.

*

MFSA 2013-54 / CVE-2013-1692: Security researcher
Johnathan Kuskos reported that Firefox is sending data in
the body of XMLHttpRequest (XHR) HEAD requests, which goes
agains the XHR specification. This can potentially be used
for Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) attacks against sites
which do not distinguish between HEAD and POST requests.

*

MFSA 2013-55 / CVE-2013-1693: Security researcher
Paul Stone of Context Information Security discovered that
timing differences in the processing of SVG format images
with filters could allow for pixel values to be read. This
could potentially allow for text values to be read across
domains, leading to information disclosure.

*

MFSA 2013-59 / CVE-2013-1697: Mozilla security
researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported that XrayWrappers can be
bypassed to call content-defined toString and valueOf
methods through DefaultValue. This can lead to unexpected
behavior when privileged code acts on the incorrect values.

*

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)

*

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 2013-34 / 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-2013-0793: 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.

*

MFSA 2013-41: 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.

*

MFSA 2013-42 / CVE-2013-1670: Security researcher
Cody Crews reported a method to call a content level
constructor that allows for this constructor to have chrome
privileged accesss. This affects chrome object wrappers
(COW) and allows for write actions on objects when only
read actions should be allowed. This can lead to cross-site
scripting (XSS) attacks.

*

MFSA 2013-43 / CVE-2013-1671: Mozilla security
researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported a mechanism to exploit the
control when set to the file type in order to get the full
path. This can lead to information leakage and could be
combined with other exploits to target attacks on the local
file system.

*

MFSA 2013-44 / CVE-2013-1672: Security researcher Seb
Patane reported an issue with the Mozilla Maintenance
Service on Windows. This issue allows unprivileged users to
local privilege escalation through the system privileges
used by the service when interacting with local malicious
software. This allows the user to bypass integrity checks
leading to local privilege escalation. Local file system
access is necessary in order for this issue to be
exploitable and it cannot be triggered through web content.

*

MFSA 2013-45: Security researcher Robert Kugler
discovered that in some instances the Mozilla Maintenance
Service on Windows will be vulnerable to some previously
fixed privilege escalation attacks that allowed for local
privilege escalation. This was caused by the Mozilla
Updater not up[censored] Windows Registry entries for the
Mozilla Maintenance Service, which fixed the earlier issues
present if Firefox 12 had been installed. New installations
of Firefox after version 12 are not affected by this issue.
Local file system access is necessary in order for this
issue to be exploitable and it cannot be triggered through
web content. References: - old MozillaMaintenance Service
registry entry not updated leading to Trusted Path
Privilege Escalation (CVE-2013-1673) - Possible Arbitrary
Code Execution by Update Service (CVE-2012-1942)

MFSA 2013-46 / CVE-2013-1674: Security researcher
Nils reported a use-after-free when resizing video while
playing. This could allow for arbitrary code execution.

*

MFSA 2013-47 / CVE-2013-1675: Mozilla community
member Ms2ger discovered that some DOMSVGZoomEvent
functions are used without being properly initialized,
causing uninitialized memory to be used when they are
called by web content. This could lead to a information
leakage to sites depending on the contents of this
uninitialized memory.

*

MFSA 2013-48: Security researcher Abhishek Arya
(Inferno) of the Google Chrome Security Team used the
Address Sanitizer tool to discover a series of
use-after-free, out of bounds read, and invalid write
problems rated as moderate to critical as security issues
in shipped software. Some of these issues are potentially
exploitable, allowing for remote code execution. We would
also like to thank Abhishek for reporting additional
use-after-free flaws in dir=auto code introduced during
Firefox development. These were fixed before general
release.
