Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA1160] DSA-1160-2 mozilla

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-1160-2 mozilla

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The latest security updates of Mozilla introduced a regression that
led to a disfunctional attachment panel which warrants a correction to
fix this issue. For reference please find below the original advisory
text:
Several security related problems have been discovered in Mozilla and
derived products. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following vulnerabilities:
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. The last bit of
this problem will be corrected with the next update. You can
prevent any trouble by disabling Javascript. [MFSA-2006-32]
The Javascript engine might permit remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code. [MFSA-2006-50]
Multiple integer overflows in the Javascript engine might permit
remote attackers to execute arbitrary code. [MFSA-2006-50]
Specially crafted Javascript permits remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code. [MFSA-2006-51]
Remote Proxy AutoConfig (PAC) servers could execute code with elevated
rights via a specially crafted PAC script. [MFSA-2006-52]
Scripts with the UniversalBrowserRead privilege could gain
UniversalXPConnect rights and possibly execute code or obtain
sensitive data. [MFSA-2006-53]
A cross-site scripting vulnerability permits remote attackers to
inject arbitrary web script or HTML. [MFSA-2006-54]
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.7.8-1sarge7.2.2.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems won't be fixed
since its end of lifetime has been reached and the package will soon
be removed.
We recommend that you upgrade your mozilla package.
