(HP Issues Revised Fix for Tru64) Firefox IFRAME Initialization Function Lets Remote Users Execute Arbitrary Code
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1016129
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1016129
CVE Reference:   CVE-2006-1993   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  Jun 2 2006
Original Entry Date:  May 19 2006
Impact:   Denial of service via network, Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 1.5 - 1.5.0.2
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Firefox. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system.

A remote user can create specially crafted HTML that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a memory access bug (where a deleted object is incorrectly reused) and execute arbitrary code on the target user's system or cause the target user's browser to crash.

The vulnerability resides in the implementation of based Command Controller functions, where objects are not properly initialized when designMode is enabled.

The bug can be triggered via the iframe.contentWindow.focus() function and potentially other functions.

Firefox 1.0.x is not affected.

The Mozilla Browser Suite 1.7.x is not affected.

Martijn Wargers, Nick Mottsplices, and spiffomatic64 and Securident Technologies independently discovered and reported this vulnerability.

A demonstration exploit is available at:

Impact:   A remote user can create HTML that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system with the privileges of the target user.
