Exposures project identifies the following problems:

  • CVE-2008-0412
    Jesse Ruderman, Kai Engert, Martijn Wargers, Mats Palmgren and Paul

    disclosure of local files.
  • CVE-2008-0415

    vulnerabilities in JavaScript handling, which could allow
    privilege escalation.

    designMode elements, which could lead to information disclosure or
    potentially the execution of arbitrary code.
  • CVE-2008-0591

    dialogs (which disable 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.

    redirects could lead to information disclosure.
  • CVE-2008-0594
    Emil Ljungdahl and Lars-Olof Moilanen discovered that phishing

The old stable distribution (sarge) doesn’t contain xulrunner.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.8.0.15~pre080131b-0etch1.

We recommend that you upgrade your xulrunner packages.
