(Red Hat Issues Fix for Thunderbird) Mozilla Firefox Includes Some Invalid Certificates
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1025246
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1025246
CVE Reference:   GENERIC-MAP-NOMATCH   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Mar 23 2011
Impact:   Modification of authentication information
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  

Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Mozilla Firefox. The impact was not specified. Mozilla Thunderbird is affected.

The browser includes some invalid certificates. The vulnerability is due to the invalid certificates and not the browser. Other browsers, applications, and operating systems are affected.

Mozilla Seamonkey and Thunderbird are affected.

A partner of Comodo with Registration Authority capabilities suffered an internal security breach and the attacker caused seven certificates to be fraudulently issued. The certificates have since been revoked. However, with some applications and systems, a man-in-the-middle attack may prevent the application or system from contacting the relevant On-line Certificate Status Protocol (OSCP) system and determining that the certificate has been revoked.

The following common names are affected:

addons.mozilla.org
login.live.com
mail.google.com
www.google.com
login.yahoo.com
login.skype.com
global trustee

Impact:   A remote user may be able to spoof websites.
Solution:   Red Hat has issued a fix for Thunderbird.

The Red Hat advisory is available at:
