Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-1120-1 mozilla-firefox

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several security related problems have been discovered in Mozilla.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
following vulnerabilities:
Eric Foley discovered that a user can be tricked to expose a local
file to a remote attacker by displaying a local file as image in
connection with other vulnerabilities. [MFSA-2006-39]
XUL attributes are associated with the wrong URL under certain
circumstances, which might permit remote attackers to bypass
restrictions. [MFSA-2006-35]
Paul Nickerson discovered that content-defined setters on an
object prototype were getting called by privileged user interface
code, and "moz_bug_r_a4" demonstrated that the higher privilege
level could be passed along to the content-defined attack code.
A vulnerability permits remote attackers to execute arbitrary code
and create notifications that are executed in a privileged
context. [MFSA-2006-43]
Mikolaj Habryn discovered a buffer overflow in the crypto.signText function
that permits remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via certain
optional Certificate Authority name arguments. [MFSA-2006-38]
Mozilla team members discovered several crashes during testing of
the browser engine showing evidence of memory corruption which may
also lead to the execution of arbitrary code. This problem has
only partially been corrected. [MFSA-2006-32]
An integer overflow permits remote attackers to cause a denial of
service and may permit the execution of arbitrary code.
Chuck McAuley discovered that a text input box can be pre-filled
with a filename and then turned into a file-upload control,
permiting a malicious website to steal any local file whose name
they can guess. [MFSA-2006-41, MFSA-2006-23, CVE-2006-1729]
Masatoshi Kimura discovered that the Unicode Byte-order-Mark (BOM)
is stripped from UTF-8 pages during the conversion to Unicode
before the parser sees the web page, which permits remote attackers
to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. [MFSA-2006-42]
Paul Nickerson discovered that the fix for CVE-2005-0752 can be
bypassed using nested javascript: URLs, permiting the attacker to
execute privileged code. [MFSA-2005-34, MFSA-2006-36]
Paul Nickerson demonstrated that if a possible hacker could convince a
user to right-click on a broken image and choose "View Image" from
the context menu then he could get JavaScript to
run. [MFSA-2006-34]
Kazuho Oku discovered that Mozilla's lenient handling of HTTP
header syntax may permit remote attackers to trick the browser to
interpret certain responses as if they were responses from two
different sites. [MFSA-2006-33]
The Mozilla researcher "moz_bug_r_a4" discovered that JavaScript
run via EvalInSandbox can escape the sandbox and gain elevated
privilege. [MFSA-2006-31]
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0.4-2sarge9.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these pr
