Description

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Iceweasel web browser, an unbranded version of the Firefox browser. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems :

  • CVE-2008-0412 Jesse Ruderman, Kai Engert, Martijn Wargers, Mats Palmgren and Paul Nickerson discovered crashes in the layout engine, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code.

  • CVE-2008-0413 Carsten Book, Wesley Garland, Igor Bukanov, 'moz_bug_r_a4', 'shutdown', Philip Taylor and 'tgirmann' discovered crashes in the JavaScript engine, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code.

  • CVE-2008-0414 'hong' and Gregory Fleischer discovered that file input focus vulnerabilities in the file upload control could allow information disclosure of local files.

  • CVE-2008-0415 'moz_bug_r_a4' and Boris Zbarsky discovered several vulnerabilities in JavaScript handling, which could allow privilege escalation.

  • CVE-2008-0417 Justin Dolske discovered that the password storage mechanism could be abused by malicious websites to corrupt existing saved passwords.

  • CVE-2008-0418 Gerry Eisenhaur and 'moz_bug_r_a4' discovered that a directory traversal vulnerability in chrome: URI handling could lead to information disclosure.

  • CVE-2008-0419 David Bloom discovered a race condition in the image handling of designMode elements, which can lead to information disclosure and potentially the execution of arbitrary code.

  • CVE-2008-0591 Michal Zalewski discovered that timers protecting security-sensitive dialogs (by disabling dialog elements until a timeout is reached) could be bypassed by window focus changes through JavaScript.

  • CVE-2008-0592 It was discovered that malformed content declarations of saved attachments could prevent a user from opening local files with a '.txt' file name, resulting in minor denial of service.

  • CVE-2008-0593 Martin Straka discovered that insecure stylesheet handling during redirects could lead to information disclosure.

  • CVE-2008-0594 Emil Ljungdahl and Lars-Olof Moilanen discovered that phishing protections could be bypassed with <div> elements.

The Mozilla products from the old stable distribution (sarge) are no longer supported with security updates.
