Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA1192] DSA-1192-1 mozilla

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-1192-1 mozilla

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several security related problems have been discovered in Mozilla and
derived products such as Mozilla Thunderbird. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
vulnerabilities:
Fernando Ribeiro discovered that a vulnerability in the getRawDER
function permits remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(hang) and possibly execute arbitrary code.
Daniel Bleichenbacher recently described an implementation error
in RSA signature verification that cause the application to
incorrectly trust SSL certificates.
Priit Laes reported that a JavaScript regular expression can
trigger a heap-based buffer overflow which permits remote attackers
to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code.
A vulnerability has been discovered that permits remote attackers
to bypass the security model and inject content into the sub-frame
of another site.
Georgi Guninski demonstrated that even with JavaScript disabled in
mail (the default) a possible hacker can still execute JavaScript when a
mail message is viewed, replied to, or forwarded.
Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in Firefox, Thunderbird and
SeaMonkey permit remote attackers to cause a denial of service,
corrupt memory, and possibly execute arbitrary code.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.7.8-1sarge7.3.1.
We recommend that you upgrade your Mozilla packages.
