Vulnerability Assessment Details
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
Several problems have been discovered in Mozilla, the web browser of
the Mozilla suite. Since the usual praxis of backporting apparently
does not work for this package, this update is basically version
1.7.10 with the version number rolled back, and hence still named
1.7.8. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies
the following problems:
A vulnerability has been discovered in Mozilla that permits remote
frameset of another site.
The browser user interface does not properly distinguish between
user-generated events and untrusted synthetic events, which makes
it easier for remote attackers to perform dangerous actions that
normally could only be performed manually by the user.
It is possible for a remote attacker to execute a callback
function in the context of another domain (i.e. frame).
Missing input sanitising of InstallVersion.compareTo() can cause
the application to crash.
Remote attackers could steal sensitive information such as cookies
and passwords from web sites by accessing data in alien frames.
from a trusted site and facilitates phishing attacks.
Remote attackers could modify certain tag properties of DOM nodes
that could lead to the execution of arbitrary script or code.
The Mozilla browser family does not properly clone base objects,
which permits remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
We recommend that you upgrade your Mozilla packages.
