(Mozilla Issues Fix for Mozilla Firefox) Apple macOS/OS X Multiple Flaws Let Remote and Local Users Deny Service, Obtain Potentially Sensitive Information, and Execute Arbitrary Code
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1036509
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1036509
CVE Reference:   CVE-2016-0718   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Aug 3 2016
Impact:   Denial of service via local system, Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of system information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via local system, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): prior to 48.0
Description:   Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in Apple macOS/OS X. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system. A local user can cause denial of service conditions on the target system. A remote or local user can obtain potentially sensitive information. A local user can obtain elevated privileges on the target system. A local user can obtain passwords on the target system. Mozilla Firefox is affected.

A remote user can trigger a flaw in apache_mod_php to execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2016-4650].

A local user can trigger a memory corruption error in the Audio component to execute arbitrary code with kernel-level privileges [CVE-2016-4647].

A local user can trigger an out-of-bounds memory read error to determine kernel memory layout [CVE-2016-4648].

A remote user can create a specially crafted audio file that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger an out-of-bounds memory read error and obtain potentially sensitive user information [CVE-2016-4646].

A local user can trigger a null pointer dereference in the Audio function to cause denial of service conditions [CVE-2016-4649].

A local user can trigger a permissions flaw in the processing of web browser cookies to view potentially sensitive information [CVE-2016-4645].

A local user can trigger an out-of-bounds memory read error to view the contents of kernel memory and obtain elevated privileges [CVE-2016-4652].

A local user can trigger a memory corruption error in the Graphics Drivers component to execute arbitrary code with kernel-level privileges [CVE-2016-4634].

A remote user can trigger a memory corruption error in ImageIO and execute arbitrary code [CVE-2016-4629, CVE-2016-4630].

An application can trigger a memory corruption error in the Intel Graphics Driver to execute arbitrary code [CVE-2016-4633].

A local user can trigger a use-after-free memory error in the IOSurface component to execute arbitrary code [CVE-2016-4625].

An application can trigger a memory corruption error in libc++abi to execute arbitrary code with root privileges [CVE-2016-4621].

A remote user can create specially crafted XML to trigger a memory corruption error in libexpat and execute arbitrary code [CVE-2016-0718].

A remote user can create specially crafted XML document that, when processed, will trigger a flaw in libxml2 and access potentially sensitive user information [CVE-2016-4449].

A user can trigger memory corruption errors in libxml2 [CVE-2016-4447, CVE-2016-4448, CVE-2016-4483, CVE-2016-4614, CVE-2016-4615, CVE-2016-4616, CVE-2016-4619].

A user can trigger memory corruption errors in libxslt [CVE-2016-4607, CVE-2016-4608, CVE-2016-4609, CVE-2016-4610, CVE-2016-4612].

An application can trigger a memory corruption error in the Login Window function to execute arbitrary code and obtain potentially sensitive user information [CVE-2016-4640].

An application can trigger a type confusion error in the Login Window function to execute arbitrary code and obtain user information [CVE-2016-4641].

A local user can exploit a memory initialization flaw in the Login Window function and cause denial of service conditions [CVE-2016-4639].

An application can trigger a type confusion error in the Login Window function and gain root privileges [CVE-2016-4638].

A remote user can create a specially crafted FlashPix Bitmap Image that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a memory corruption error in QuickTime and execute arbitrary code on the target user's system [CVE-2016-4596, CVE-2016-4597, CVE-2016-4600, CVE-2016-4602].

A remote user can create a specially crafted image that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a memory corruption error in QuickTime and execute arbitrary code on the target user's system [CVE-2016-4598].

A remote user can create a specially crafted SGI file that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a memory corruption error in QuickTime and execute arbitrary code on the target user's system [CVE-2016-4601].

A remote user can create a specially crafted Photoshop document that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a memory corruption error in QuickTime and execute arbitrary code on the target user's system [CVE-2016-4599].

A physically local user can exploit a flaw in the Safari password auto-fill function to view the target user's password [CVE-2016-4595].
