Description

The installed version of Firefox is affected by various security issues :

  • Several stability bugs leading to crashes which, in some cases, show traces of memory corruption

  • Several file input focus stealing vulnerabilities that could result in uploading of arbitrary files provided their full path and file names are known.

  • Several issues that allow scripts from page content to escape from their sandboxed context and/or run with chrome privileges, resulting in privilege escalation, XSS, and/or remote code execution.

  • An issue that could allow a malicious site to inject newlines into the application's password store when a user saves his password, resulting in corruption of saved passwords for other sites.

  • A directory traversal vulnerability via the 'chrome:' URI.

  • A vulnerability involving 'designMode' frames that may result in web browsing history and forward navigation stealing.

  • An information disclosure issue in the BMP decoder.

  • A file action dialog tampering vulnerability involving timer-enabled security dialogs.

  • Mis-handling of locally-saved plaintext files.

  • Possible disclosure of sensitive URL parameters, such as session tokens, via the .href property of stylesheet DOM nodes reflecting the final URI of the stylesheet after following any 302 redirects.

  • A failure to display a web forgery warning dialog in cases where the entire contents of a page are enclosed in a '<div>' with absolute positioning.

  • Multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities related to character encoding.
