(Red Hat Issues Fix) Mozilla Firefox Bugs Let Remote Users Execute Arbitrary Code, Bypass Same Origin-Policy, and Obtain Potentially Sensitive Information
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1031031
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1031031
CVE Reference:   CVE-2014-1574, CVE-2014-1576, CVE-2014-1577, CVE-2014-1578, CVE-2014-1581, CVE-2014-1583   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Oct 15 2014
Impact:   Disclosure of system information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): prior to 33.0
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 remote user can obtian potentially sensitive information. A remote user can bypass same-origin policy.

A remote user can create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a memory corruption error and execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2014-1574, CVE-2014-1575]. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

A buffer overflow in nsTransformedTextRun() when making capitalization style changes during CSS parsing may allow remote code execution [CVE-2014-1576].

An out-of-bounds read may occur in mozilla::dom::OscillatorNodeEngine::ComputeCustom() in Web Audio when interacting with custom waveforms with invalid values [CVE-2014-1577].

An out-of-bounds write may occur in get_tile() when buffering WebM format video containing frames with invalid tile sizes [CVE-2014-1578].

A memory disclosure leak may occur when a specially crafted GIF image is repeatedly rendered within a <canvas> element [CVE-2014-1580].

A use-after-free may occur in DirectionalityUtils() [CVE-2014-1581].

A remote user can use SPDY or HTTP/2 connection coalescing to bypass key pinning on sites that resolve to the same IP address [CVE-2014-1582].

When certain problems in verifying the issuer of an SSL certificate occur, key pinning check are not performed [CVE-2014-1584].

Video sharing using WebRTC within an <iframe> may continue to be shared even if the user selects the "Stop Sharing" button in the controls [CVE-2014-1585, CVE-2014-1586].

A specially crafted app can invoke the AlarmAPI to read the values of cross-origin references in the alarm's JSON data [CVE-2014-1583]. For example, an iframe's location object can be accessed.

Bobby Holley, Christian Holler, David Bolter, Byron Campen, Jon Coppeard, Carsten Book, Martijn Wargers, Shih-Chiang Chien, Terrence Cole, Eric Rahm, Jeff Walden, Atte Kettunen from OUSPG, Holger Fuhrmannek, Abhishek Arya (Inferno), Google security researcher Michal Zalewski, regenrecht (via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative), Mozilla developer Patrick McManus, Mozilla security engineer David Keeler, Mozilla developer Eric Shepherd, Mozilla developer Jan-Ivar Bruaroey, and Mozilla developer Boris Zbarsky reported these vulnerabilities.

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 from system memory.

A remote user can bypass same-origin policy.

Solution:   Red Hat has issued a fix for CVE-2014-1574, CVE-2014-1576, CVE-2014-1577, CVE-2014-1578, CVE-2014-1581, and CVE-2014-1583.

3. Description:

Mozilla Firefox is an open source web browser. XULRunner provides the XUL
Runtime environment for Mozilla Firefox.

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 with the privileges of the user running
Firefox. (CVE-2014-1574, CVE-2014-1578, CVE-2014-1581, CVE-2014-1576,
CVE-2014-1577)

A flaw was found in the Alarm API, which allows applications to schedule
actions to be run in the future. A malicious web application could use this
flaw to bypass cross-origin restrictions. (CVE-2014-1583)

Red Hat would like to thank the Mozilla project for reporting these issues.
Upstream acknowledges Bobby Holley, Christian Holler, David Bolter, Byron 
Campen Jon Coppeard, Atte Kettunen, Holger Fuhrmannek, Abhishek Arya, 
regenrecht, and Boris Zbarsky as the original reporters of these issues.

For technical details regarding these flaws, refer to the Mozilla security
advisories for Firefox 31.2.0 ESR. You can find a link to the Mozilla
advisories in the References section of this erratum.

All Firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
Firefox version 31.2.0 ESR, which corrects these issues. After installing
the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

4. Solution:
