(Red Hat Issues Fix for Thunderbird) Mozilla Firefox Bug in Firefox URL Protocol Handler Lets Remote Users Execute Arbitrary Commands
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1018430
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1018430
CVE Reference:   CVE-2007-3670, CVE-2007-3845, CVE-2007-4841   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jul 19 2007
Impact:   Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 2.0.0.7 and prior versions
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Mozilla Firefox. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system. Mozilla Thunderbird is affected.

The browser does not properly process the 'FirefoxURL' URL protocol. A remote user can create specially crafted HTML that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary shell commands with arbitrary arguments on the target system. The commands will run with the privileges of the target user.

Billy (BK) Rios, Nate Mcfeters, and Raghav "the Pope" Dube reported this vulnerability.

The original advisory is available at:

http://www.xs-sniper.com/sniperscope/IE-Pwns-Firefox.html

Thor Larholm originally reported this type of vulnerability as applied to Microsoft Internet Explorer:

http://larholm.com/2007/07/10/internet-explorer-0day-exploit/

[Editor's note: Some users dispute that Internet Explorer is at fault.]

Jesper Johansson and others reported that other URI protocol handlers (e.g., mailto, news, nntp, snews, and telnet) are also affected and still vulnerable in Firefox 2.0.0.5.

Firefox version 2.0.0.6 does not properly process %-encoded sequences.

Some demonstration exploit code is available at:

http://xs-sniper.com/blog/remote-command-exec-firefox-2005/

Impact:   A remote user can create HTML that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.
Solution:   Red Hat has released a fix for Thunderbird, which is affected by this Firefox vulnerability.

3. Problem description:

Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client.

Several flaws were found in the way Thunderbird processed certain malformed
JavaScript code. A malicious HTML email message containing JavaScript code
could cause Thunderbird to crash or potentially execute arbitrary code as
the user running Thunderbird.  JavaScript support is disabled by default in
Thunderbird; these issues are not exploitable unless the user has enabled
JavaScript. (CVE-2007-3089, CVE-2007-3734, CVE-2007-3735, CVE-2007-3736,
CVE-2007-3737, CVE-2007-3738)

Users of Thunderbird are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages,
which contain backported patches that correct these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.  

This update is available via Red Hat Network.  Details on how to use 
the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
