CVE Reference:   CVE-2016-1952, CVE-2016-1954, CVE-2016-1957, CVE-2016-1960, CVE-2016-1961   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Mar 17 2016
Impact:   Denial of service via network, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of system information, Modification of user information, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  

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 cause denial of service conditions on the target system. A remote user can modify files on the target system. A remote user can bypass same-origin restrictions on the target system. A remote user can spoof the address bar. 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-2016-1952, CVE-2016-1953].

A remote user can create specially crafted HTML that, when loaded by the target user, will overwrite files on the target user's system with a Content Security Policy (CSP) violation report [CVE-2016-1954].

A remote user may be able to obtain full path information for cross-origin iframe navigations in a CSP violatin report [CVE-2016-1955].

A remote user can create content that, when loaded by the target user, will perform certain WebGL operations in a canvas to consume excessive memory resources on the target user's system [CVE-2016-1956]. Certain Intel drivers on Linux are affected.

A remote user can create a specially crafted MPEG4 video file that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a memory leak in the libstagefright library [CVE-2016-1957].

A remote user can spoof the address bar URL [CVE-2016-1958].

A remote user can trigger a flaw in the Clients API in Service Workers to cause an out-of-bounds read in ServiceWorkerManager and potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2016-1959].

A remote user can trigger a use-after-free memory error in the HTML5 string parser and potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2016-1960].

A remote user can trigger a use-after-free memory error in the SetBody function of HTMLDocument and potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2016-1961].

A remote user can trigger a use-after-free memory error when using multiple WebRTC data channel connections and potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2016-1962].

A local user can modify a file being read by FileReader to potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2016-1963].

A remote user can trigger a use-after-free memory error during XML transformation operations and potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2016-1964].

A remote user can spoof the address bar using location.protocol and history.back [CVE-2016-1965].

A remote user may be able to read cross-origin URLs [CVE-2016-1967].

A remote user can trigger a buffer overflow in the Brotli library and potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2016-1968].

A remote user can trigger a pointer dereference in the Netscape Plugin Application Programming Interface (NPAPI) plug-in and potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2016-1966].

A remote user can trigger memory errors in WebRTC and potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2016-1970, CVE-2016-1971, CVE-2016-1975, CVE-2016-1976, CVE-2016-1972].

A remote user can trigger a race condition in WebRTC in GetStaticInstance() and potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2016-1973].

A remote user can trigger an out-of-bounds memory read error in parsing unicode strings and potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2016-1974].

A remote user can create a specially crafted ASN.1 encoded certificate that, when parsed by the Network Security Services (NSS) library, will trigger a heap overflow and potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2016-1950].

A remote user can trigger a use-after-free memory error in the NSS libraries when processing DER-encoded keys [CVE-2016-1979].

A remote user can create a specially crafted graphite font that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a stack corruption, uninitialized memory, out-of-bounds read, or out-of-bounds write error and potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2016-1969, CVE-2016-1977, CVE-2016-2790, CVE-2016-2791, CVE-2016-2792, CVE-2016-2793, CVE-2016-2794, CVE-2016-2795, CVE-2016-2796, CVE-2016-2797, CVE-2016-2798, CVE-2016-2799, CVE-2016-2800, CVE-2016-2801, CVE-2016-2802].
