Date:  Mar 21 2018
Impact:   Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  

Description:   Two 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 create specially crafted Vorbis audio data that, when processed by the target user's browser, will trigger an out-of-bounds memory write in libvorbis and execute arbitrary code on the target user's system [CVE-2018-5146].

A remote user can create specially crafted Vorbis audio data that, when processed by the target user's browser, will trigger an out-of-bounds memory write in libtremor and execute arbitrary code on the target user's system [CVE-2018-5147]. Android and ARM platforms are affected.

Richard Zhu (via Trend Micro's Zero Day Initiative and reported through the Pwn2Own contest) and Huzaifa Sidhpurwala 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.
Solution:   CentOS has issued a fix for CVE-2018-5146.
