Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): prior to 2.12
Description:   Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in Mozilla Seamonkey. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's 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].

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].

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, Frederic Hoguin, miaubiz, Arthur Gerkis, Christoph Diehl, Nicolas Gregoire, vsemozhetbyt, Mark Poticha, moz_bug_r_a4, and Blake Kaplan.

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 remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information.

A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (2.12).
