Description

Multiple memory safety issues were discovered in Thunderbird. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted message, an attacker could potentially exploit these to cause a denial of service via application crash, or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-9893, CVE-2017-5373)

Andrew Krasichkov discovered that event handlers on <marquee> elements were executed despite a Content Security Policy (CSP) that disallowed inline JavaScript. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website in a browsing context, an attacker could potentially exploit this to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. (CVE-2016-9895)

A memory corruption issue was discovered in WebGL in some circumstances. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website in a browsing context, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via application crash, or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-9897)

A use-after-free was discovered when manipulating DOM subtrees in the Editor. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website in a browsing context, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via application crash, or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-9898)

A use-after-free was discovered when manipulating DOM events and audio elements. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website in a browsing context, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via application crash, or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-9899)

It was discovered that external resources that should be blocked when loading SVG images can bypass security restrictions using data: URLs. An attacker could potentially exploit this to obtain sensitive information. (CVE-2016-9900)

Jann Horn discovered that JavaScript Map/Set were vulnerable to timing attacks. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website in a browsing context, an attacker could potentially exploit this to obtain sensitive information across domains. (CVE-2016-9904)

A crash was discovered in EnumerateSubDocuments while adding or removing sub-documents. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website in a browsing context, an attacker could potentially exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-9905)

JIT code allocation can allow a bypass of ASLR protections in some circumstances. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website in a browsing context, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via application crash, or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-5375)

Nicolas Gr├ęgoire discovered a use-after-free when manipulating XSL in XSLT documents in some circumstances. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website in a browsing context, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via application crash, or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-5376)

Jann Horn discovered that an object’s address could be discovered through hashed codes of JavaScript objects shared between pages. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website in a browsing context, an attacker could potentially exploit this to obtain sensitive information. (CVE-2017-5378)

A use-after-free was discovered during DOM manipulation of SVG content in some circumstances. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website in a browsing context, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via application crash, or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-5380)

Armin Razmjou discovered that certain unicode glyphs do not trigger punycode display. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website in a browsing context, an attacker could potentially exploit this to spoof the URL bar contents. (CVE-2017-5383)

Jerri Rice discovered insecure communication methods in the Dev Tools JSON Viewer. An attacker could potentially exploit this to gain additional privileges. (CVE-2017-5390)

Filipe Gomes discovered a use-after-free in the media decoder in some circumstances. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website in a browsing context, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via application crash, or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-5396)
