(Red Hat Issues Fix) Mozilla Firefox Multiple Bugs Let Remote Users Spoof Filenames, Bypass Security Restrictions, Obtain Potentially Sensitive Information, and Execute Arbitrary Code
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1040914
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1040914
CVE Reference:   CVE-2018-5150, CVE-2018-5154, CVE-2018-5155, CVE-2018-5157, CVE-2018-5158, CVE-2018-5159, CVE-2018-5168   (Links to External Site)

Impact:   Disclosure of system information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of system 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 bypass security controls on the target system. A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information on the target system. A remote user can spoof filenames.

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.

A use-after-free memory error occur when enumerating attributes during SVG animations with clip paths [CVE-2018-5154].

A use-after-free memory error occur when adjusting layout during SVG animations with text paths [CVE-2018-5155].

An integer overflow may occur in the Skia library [CVE-2018-5159].

An uninitialized memory error may occur in the WebRTC encoder [CVE-2018-5160].

A use-after-free memory error may occur in mozilla::WebGLContext::DrawElementsInstanced() [CVE-2018-5180].

A remote user that can exploit a separate vulnerability may be able to inject JavaScript code [CVE-2018-5163].

The software does not properly validate output in the web console and JavaScript debugger and may display some content as clickable links [CVE-2018-5167].

A remote user can cause lightweight themes to be installed without user interaction [CVE-2018-5168].

A specially crafted hyperlinked text containing a 'chrome:' URL can be dragged and dropped onto the 'home' icon [CVE-2018-5169].

The Live Bookmarks page and the PDF viewer may run injected script content from the clipboard in certain cases [CVE-2018-5172].

A buffer overflow may occur in XSLT [CVE-2018-5177].

Other memory corruption errors may occur [CVE-2018-5150, CVE-2018-5151].

On 32-bit versions of Firefox, the Adobe Flash plugin setting for 'Enable Adobe Flash protected mode' displays the opposite status of the Adobe Flash sandbox [CVE-2018-5165].

The Windows Defender SmartScreen UI runs with less secure behavior for downloaded files after the Windows 10 April 2018 Update has been applied [CVE-2018-5174]. Windows systems are affected.

The system may display local files in tabs or the hyperlink [CVE-2018-5181, CVE-2018-5182].

A remote user can inject JavaScript into the PDF viewer [CVE-2018-5158].

A remote user can inject script via the JSON Viewer [CVE-2018-5176].

A remote user can use Unicode characters to spoof filenames in the Downloads panel [CVE-2018-5173].

A remote user can bypass Content Security Policy (CSP) protections for sites that have a script-src policy of 'strict-dynamic' [CVE-2018-5175].

A remote user can bypass WebExtension host permissions via filterReponseData [CVE-2018-5166].

The software does not properly apply Content Security Policy (CSP) to all content sent with the multipart/x-mixed-replace MIME type. A remote user can exploit this to conduct cross-site scripting attacks [CVE-2018-5164].

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

A remote user can bypass same-origin restrictions in the PDF viewer to view ostensibly protected PDF files [CVE-2018-5157].

A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive WebExtensions information via the webRequest API [CVE-2018-5152].

An out-of-bounds memory read error may occur when sending websocket data [CVE-2018-5153].
