Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Iceweasel, Debian's version of the Mozilla Firefox web browser. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems :

  • CVE-2012-3982 : Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors.

  • CVE-2012-3986 : Iceweasel does not properly restrict calls to DOMWindowUtils methods, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions via crafted JavaScript code.

  • CVE-2012-3990 : A Use-after-free vulnerability in the IME State Manager implementation allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors, related to the nsIContent::GetNameSpaceID function.

  • CVE-2012-3991 : Iceweasel does not properly restrict JSAPI access to the GetProperty function, which allows remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy and possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted website.

  • CVE-2012-4179 : A use-after-free vulnerability in the nsHTMLCSSUtils::CreateCSSPropertyTxn function allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) via unspecified vectors.

  • CVE-2012-4180 : A heap-based buffer overflow in the nsHTMLEditor::IsPrevCharInNodeWhitespace function allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors.

  • CVE-2012-4182 : A use-after-free vulnerability in the nsTextEditRules::WillInsert function allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) via unspecified vectors.

  • CVE-2012-4186 : A heap-based buffer overflow in the nsWav-eReader::DecodeAudioData function allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors.

  • CVE-2012-4188 : A heap-based buffer overflow in the Convolve3x3 function allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors.
