Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:170 (mozilla).



A number of vulnerabilities have been discovered in Mozilla that have been
corrected in version 1.7.12:

A bug in the way Mozilla processes XBM images could be used to execute
arbitrary code via a specially crafted XBM image file (CVE-2005-2701).

A bug in the way Mozilla handles certain Unicode sequences could be used to
execute arbitrary code via viewing a specially crafted Unicode sequence
(CVE-2005-2702).

A bug in the way Mozilla makes XMLHttp requests could be abused by a malicious
web page to exploit other proxy or server flaws from the victim's machine

however, the default behaviour of the browser is to dispermit this
(CVE-2005-2703).

A bug in the way Mozilla implemented its XBL interface could be abused by a
malicious web page to create an XBL binding in such a way as to permit arbitrary
JavaScript execution with chrome permissions (CVE-2005-2704).

An integer overflow in Mozilla's JavaScript engine could be manipulated in
certain conditions to permit a malicious web page to execute arbitrary code
(CVE-2005-2705).

A bug in the way Mozilla displays about: pages could be used to execute
JavaScript with chrome rights (CVE-2005-2706).

A bug in the way Mozilla opens new windows could be used by a malicious web
page to construct a new window without any user interface elements (such as
address bar and status bar) that could be used to potentially mislead the user
(CVE-2005-2707).

Tom Ferris reported that Firefox would crash when processing a domain name
consisting solely of soft-hyphen characters due to a heap overflow when IDN
processing results in an empty string after removing non- wrapping chracters,
such as soft-hyphens. This could be exploited to run or or install malware on
the user's computer (CVE-2005-2871).

The updated packages have been patched to address these issues and all users
are urged to upgrade immediately.
