SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1031999
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1031999
CVE Reference:   CVE-2015-0801, CVE-2015-0807, CVE-2015-0813, CVE-2015-0815, CVE-2015-0816   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  Apr 1 2015
Original Entry Date:  Apr 1 2015
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 37.0
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 conduct cross-site request forgery attacks. A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information on the target system. A remote user can conduct click-jacking attacks.

A remote user can create specially crafted HTML that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a memory corruption error and execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2015-0814, CVE-2015-0815].

A remote user can create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a use-after-free memory error in the AppendElements() function in the Fluendo MP3 GStreamer plugin and execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2015-0813]. Only Linux-based systems are affected.

Add-on installation of lightweight themes does not require the use of HTTP over SSL. A remote user with the ability to conduct a man-in-the-middle can spoof a Mozilla sub-domain to bypass user approval messages when installin a Firefox lightweight theme [CVE-2015-0812].

A remote user can load a document via a 'resource:' URL to bypass same-origin policy and load privileged chrome pages and execute arbitrary code [CVE-2015-0816].

A remote user can trigger an out-of-bounds memory read in the QCMS library to obtain potentially sensitive information [CVE-2015-0811].

A remote user can use flash content and images to make the cursor invisible and conduct clickjacking attacks [CVE-2015-0810]. Only OS X systems are affected.

A remote user can trigger a memory management flaw in webrtc::VPMContentAnalysis::Release() to potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2015-0808].

A remote user can exploit a flaw in the processing of cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) requests to potentially conduct cross-site request forgery (XSRF) attacks [CVE-2015-0807].

A remote user can trigger a memory corruption error in 2D graphics rendering to potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2015-0805, CVE-2015-0806].

A remote user can exploit a type confusion flaw in the processing of source elements to trigger a use-after-free memory error and execute arbitrary code [CVE-2015-0803, CVE-2015-0804].

A remote user can exploit a anchor navigation flaw in SVG content navigation to bypass same-origin policy [CVE-2015-0801].

The Fennec DNS resolver in Firefox for Android uses an insufficiently random algorithm when generating random numbers for the unique identifier. A remote user can exploit this to conduct DNS poisoning attacks [CVE-2015-0800]. Only Firefox for Android is affected.

A window created to hold privileged UI content can retained access to privileged internal methods when later navigating to unprivileged content. A remote user that can exploit a separate flaw can exploit this flaw to gain elevated privileges or execute arbitrary code [CVE-2015-0802].

Christian Holler, Byron Campen, Andrew McCreight, Gary Kwong, Karl Tomlinson, Randell Jesup, Shu-yu Guo, Steve Fink, Tooru Fujisawa, Aki Helin, Armin Razmdjou, Mariusz Mlynski (HP Zero Day Initiative's Pwn2Own contest), Felix Grobert of Google, Jordi Chancel, Mitchell Harper, Christoph Kerschbaumer, Muneaki Nishimura, Abhishek Arya (Inferno) of the Google Chrome Security Team, Nils, Olli Pettay, Boris Zbarsky, Daniel Stenberg, and Bobby Holley reported these vulnerabilities.

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

A remote user can conduct cross-site request forgery attacks.

A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information on the target system.

A remote user can conduct click-jacking attacks.

Solution:   CentOS has issued a fix for CVE-2015-0801, CVE-2015-0807, CVE-2015-0813, CVE-2015-0815, and CVE-2015-0816.
