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 cause denial of service conditions on the target system. A remote user can bypass security controls on the target system. A remote user can spoof URLs. Mozilla Thunderbird is affected.|
A remote user can create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system [CVE-2016-1930, CVE-2016-1931].
A remote user can create a specially crafted GIF file that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger an integer overflow [CVE-2016-1933].
A remote user can trigger a buffer overflow in BufferSubData() in the rendering of WebGL content [CVE-2016-1935].
A remote user can create a specially crafted cookie name or value containing illegal control characters (per RFC6265). This may result in errors in cookie processing that could have a security impact [CVE-2016-1939].
A remote user can set a vertical tab character in a cookie which may result in cookie injection on some servers [CVE-2015-7208].
A remote user can spoof the address bar [CVE-2016-1940]. Firefox for Android is affected.
When the protocol handler dialog appears, double click events are treated as two single click events, which may cause unintentional user initiated actions [CVE-2016-1937].
The Network Security Services (NSS) mp_div() and mp_exptmod() functions may create incorrect calculations in certain cases, which may cause cryptographic weaknesses [CVE-2016-1938].
The timing between the download 'open file' dialog obtaining focus and the button being enabled was short, allowing clickjacking attacks [CVE-2016-1941].
A remote user can spoof the address bar [CVE-2016-1943]. Firefox for Android is affected.
A remote user can spoof the location bar [CVE-2016-1942].
A remote user can trigger an error in Buffer11::NativeBuffer11::map() [CVE-2016-1944].
A remote user can trigger an error in nsZipArchive() [CVE-2016-1945].
A remote user can trigger an error in MoofParser::Metadata() [CVE-2016-1946].
The browser may be unable to access the Application Reputation service [CVE-2016-1947].
Lightweight themes may be installed over a non-secure connection. A remote user that can conduct a man-in-the-middle attack can modify theme content (e.g., images, toolbar text colors) [CVE-2016-1948]. Firefox for Android is affected.
