Description

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in Xulrunner, a runtime environment for XUL applications. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems :

  • CVE-2007-3844 'moz_bug_r_a4' discovered that a regression in the handling of'about:blank' windows used by addons may lead to an attacker being able to modify the content of websites.

  • CVE-2007-3845 Jesper Johansson discovered that missing sanitising of double-quotes and spaces in URIs passed to external programs may allow an attacker to pass arbitrary arguments to the helper program if the user is tricked into opening a malformed web page.

The oldstable distribution (sarge) doesn't include xulrunner.
