Updated:  Aug 29 2012
Original Entry Date:  Aug 29 2012
Impact:   Disclosure of system information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via local system, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): prior to 15.0
Description:   Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in Mozilla Firefox. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system. A local user can obtain elevated privileges on the target system. A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

A remote user can create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target users system [CVE-2012-1970, CVE-2012-1971, CVE-2012-1972, CVE-2012-1973, CVE-2012-1974, CVE-2012-1975, CVE-2012-1976, CVE-2012-3956, CVE-2012-3957, CVE-2012-3958, CVE-2012-3959, CVE-2012-3960, CVE-2012-3961, CVE-2012-3962, CVE-2012-3963, CVE-2012-3964, CVE-2012-3965, CVE-2012-3966, CVE-2012-3967, CVE-2012-3968, CVE-2012-3969,
CVE-2012-3970, CVE-2012-3971, CVE-2012-3972]. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

A remote user can shadow the window.location object using Object.defineProperty to potentially conduct cross-site scripting attacks [CVE-2012-1956].

If remote debugging is disabled, but the experimental HTTPMonitor extension is enabled, a remote user can connect to and use the remote debugging service via the port used by HTTPMonitor [CVE-2012-3973].

A local user can place a specially crafted executable in the root partition on a Windows file system that will be executed by the installer [CVE-2012-3974].

A remote user can exploit a flaw in the DOMParser to obtain potentially sensitive information [CVE-2012-3975].

A remote user can cause the incorrect SSL certificate information to be displayed on the addressbar [CVE-2012-3976].

A remote user can bypass security checks in nsLocation::CheckURL [CVE-2012-3978].

A remote user can exploit a flaw in __android_log_print() to potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2012-3979]. Only Firefox for Android is affected.

A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be injected when the target user opens the web console [CVE-2012-3980].

The following researchers reported these vulnerabilities:

Gary Kwong, Christian Holler, Jesse Ruderman, Steve Fink, Bob Clary, Andrew Sutherland, Jason Smith, John Schoenick, Vladimir Vukicevic, Daniel Holbert, Abhishek Arya (Inferno) of Google Chrome Security Team, Mariusz Mlynski,
Frederic Hoguin, miaubiz, Arthur Gerkis, Christoph Diehl, Nicolas Gregoire, Mark Goodwin, Masato Kinugawa, vsemozhetbyt, Mark Poticha, moz_bug_r_a4, Blake Kaplan, and Colby Russell.

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

A local user can obtain elevated privileges on the target system.

A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information.

A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (ESR 10.0.7, 15.0).
