3. Description:

 

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

Runtime environment for Mozilla Firefox.

 

Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web

page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to terminate

unexpectedly or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of

the user running Firefox. (CVE-2013-5590, CVE-2013-5597, CVE-2013-5599,

CVE-2013-5600, CVE-2013-5601, CVE-2013-5602)

 

It was found that the Firefox JavaScript engine incorrectly allocated

memory for certain functions. An attacker could combine this flaw with

other vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the

user running Firefox. (CVE-2013-5595)

 

A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled certain Extensible Stylesheet

Language Transformations (XSLT) files. An attacker could combine this flaw

with other vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of

the user running Firefox. (CVE-2013-5604)

 

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

issues. Upstream acknowledges Jesse Ruderman, Christoph Diehl, Dan Gohman,

Byoungyoung Lee, Nils, and Abhishek Arya as the original reporters of these

issues.

 

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

advisories for Firefox 17.0.10 ESR. You can find a link to the Mozilla

advisories in the References section of this erratum.

 

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

Firefox version 17.0.10 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.
