(Red Hat Issues Fix) Mozilla Firefox 2.0 Has Multiple Bugs That Permit Remote Code Execution, Certificate Spoofing, Cross-Site Scripting, and Other Impacts
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1020420
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1020420
CVE Reference:   CVE-2008-2798, CVE-2008-2799, CVE-2008-2800, CVE-2008-2801, CVE-2008-2802, CVE-2008-2803, CVE-2008-2805, CVE-2008-2807, CVE-2008-2808, CVE-2008-2809, CVE-2008-2810, CVE-2008-2811   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jul 2 2008
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of system information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Host/resource access via network, Modification of user information, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 2.0.0.14 and prior versions
Description:   Several vulnerabilities were reported in Mozilla Firefox. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

A remote user can create specially crafted HTML that, when loaded by the target user, will crash the target user's browser, execute arbitrary code on the target user's browser, obtain files from the target user's system, spoof trusted certificates, or initiate arbitrary socket connections.

A remote user can also cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will run in the security context of arbitrary domains. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

Impact:   A remote user can create HTML that, when loaded by the target user, execute arbitrary code on the target user's browser, obtain files from the target user's system, spoof trusted certificates, initiate arbitrary socket connections, or execute scripting code in arbitrary domains.
Solution:   Red Hat has released a fix (backported to Firefox 1.5).

1. Summary:

An updated firefox package that fixes several security issues is now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Description:

Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser.

Multiple flaws were found in the processing of malformed JavaScript
content. A web page containing such malicious content could cause Firefox
to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running
Firefox. (CVE-2008-2801, CVE-2008-2802, CVE-2008-2803)

Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web
page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Firefox.
(CVE-2008-2798, CVE-2008-2799, CVE-2008-2811)

Several flaws were found in the way malformed web content was displayed. A
web page containing specially-crafted content could potentially trick a
Firefox user into surrendering sensitive information. (CVE-2008-2800)

Two local file disclosure flaws were found in Firefox. A web page
containing malicious content could cause Firefox to reveal the contents of
a local file to a remote attacker. (CVE-2008-2805, CVE-2008-2810)

A flaw was found in the way a malformed .properties file was processed by
Firefox. A malicious extension could read uninitialized memory, possibly
leaking sensitive data to the extension. (CVE-2008-2807)

A flaw was found in the way Firefox escaped a listing of local file names.
If a user could be tricked into listing a local directory containing
malicious file names, arbitrary JavaScript could be run with the
permissions of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2008-2808)

A flaw was found in the way Firefox displayed information about self-signed
certificates. It was possible for a self-signed certificate to contain
multiple alternate name entries, which were not all displayed to the user,
allowing them to mistakenly extend trust to an unknown site.
(CVE-2008-2809)

All Mozilla Firefox users should upgrade to this updated package, which
contains 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.
