Description

Mozilla Firefox has been updated to the17.0.6ESR security release.

  • Mozilla developers identified and fixed several memory safety bugs in the browser engine used in Firefox and other Mozilla-based products. Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory corruption under certain circumstances, and we presume that with enough effort at least some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code. (MFSA 2013-30)

    Olli Pettay, Jesse Ruderman, Boris Zbarsky, Christian Holler, Milan Sreckovic, and Joe Drew reported memory safety problems and crashes that affect Firefox ESR 17, and Firefox 19. (CVE-2013-0788)

  • Security researcher Abhishek Arya (Inferno) of the Google Chrome Security Team used the Address Sanitizer tool to discover an out-of-bounds write in Cairo graphics library. When certain values are passed to it during rendering, Cairo attempts to use negative boundaries or sizes for boxes, leading to a potentially exploitable crash in some instances. (MFSA 2013-31 / CVE-2013-0800)

  • Security researcher Frederic Hoguin discovered that the Mozilla Maintenance Service on Windows was vulnerable to a buffer overflow. This system is used to update software without invoking the User Account Control (UAC) prompt. The Mozilla Maintenance Service is configured to allow unprivileged users to start it with arbitrary arguments. By manipulating the data passed in these arguments, an attacker can execute arbitrary code with the system privileges used by the service. This issue requires local file system access to be exploitable. (MFSA 2013-32 / CVE-2013-0799)

  • Security researcher Ash reported an issue with the Mozilla Updater. The Mozilla Updater can be made to load a malicious local DLL file in a privileged context through either the Mozilla Maintenance Service or independently on systems that do not use the service. This occurs when the DLL file is placed in a specific location on the local system before the Mozilla Updater is run. Local file system access is necessary in order for this issue to be exploitable. (MFSA 2013-34 / CVE-2013-0797)

  • Security researcher miaubiz used the Address Sanitizer tool to discover a crash in WebGL rendering when memory is freed that has not previously been allocated. This issue only affects Linux users who have Intel Mesa graphics drivers. The resulting crash could be potentially exploitable. (MFSA 2013-35 / CVE-2013-0796)

  • Security researcher Cody Crews reported a mechanism to use the cloneNode method to bypass System Only Wrappers (SOW) and clone a protected node. This allows violation of the browser's same origin policy and could also lead to privilege escalation and the execution of arbitrary code. (MFSA 2013-36 / CVE-2013-0795)

  • Security researcher shutdown reported a method for removing the origin indication on tab-modal dialog boxes in combination with browser navigation. This could allow an attacker's dialog to overlay a page and show another site's content. This can be used for phishing by allowing users to enter data into a modal prompt dialog on an attacking, site while appearing to be from the displayed site. (MFSA 2013-37 / CVE-2013-0794)

  • Security researcher Mariusz Mlynski reported a method to use browser navigations through history to load an arbitrary website with that page's baseURI property pointing to another site instead of the seemingly loaded one. The user will continue to see the incorrect site in the addressbar of the browser. This allows for a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack or the theft of data through a phishing attack. (MFSA 2013-38 / CVE-2013-0793)

  • Mozilla community member Tobias Schula reported that if gfx.color_management.enablev4 preference is enabled manually in about:config, some grayscale PNG images will be rendered incorrectly and cause memory corruption during PNG decoding when certain color profiles are in use. A crafted PNG image could use this flaw to leak data through rendered images drawing from random memory. By default, this preference is not enabled. (MFSA 2013-39 / CVE-2013-0792)

  • Mozilla community member Ambroz Bizjak reported an out-of-bounds array read in the CERT_DecodeCertPackage function of the Network Security Services (NSS) libary when decoding a certificate. When this occurs, it will lead to memory corruption and a non-exploitable crash. (MFSA 2013-40 / CVE-2013-0791)
