(Red Hat Issues Fix for Mozilla Thunderbird) Mozilla Firefox Multiple Bugs Let Remote Users Spoof the Address Bar, Bypass Security Restrictions, and Execute Arbitrary Code
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1042029
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1042029
CVE Reference:   CVE-2017-16541, CVE-2018-12376, CVE-2018-12377, CVE-2018-12378, CVE-2018-12379, CVE-2018-12383   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Nov 5 2018
Impact:   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 spoof the address bar. Mozilla Thunderbird is affected.

A remote user can use a 'javascript:' URI with JavaScript to insert text before the domain name to spoof the address bar [CVE-2018-12382]. Firefox for Android 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.

A use-after-free memory error may occur in certain cases when refresh driver timers are refreshed [CVE-2018-12377].

A use-after-free memory error may occur when an IndexedDB index is deleted while still in use [CVE-2018-12378].

An out-of-bounds memory write error may occur when the Mozilla Updater opens a MAR format file that contains a very long item filename [CVE-2018-12379].

When the automount feature with autofs is used to create a mount point on the local file system, content can be loaded from this file system using a 'file:' URI without being processed via the proxy settings [CVE-2017-16541]. macOS is affected. Linux-based systems with autofs installed are also affected.

When the target user drags and drops an Outlook email message into the browser, a page navigation may occur [CVE-2018-12381]. Windows-based systems with Outlook installed are affected.

When a master password is set after version 58.0, unencrypted passwords are not deleted [CVE-2018-12383].

Other memory safety errors may occur [CVE-2018-12375, CVE-2018-12376].

Impact:   A remote user can create content that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.

A remote user can bypass security controls on the target system.

A remote user can spoof the address bar.

Security Fix(es):

* Mozilla: Memory safety bugs fixed in Firefox 62 and Firefox ESR 60.2
(CVE-2018-12376)

* Mozilla: Use-after-free in driver timers (CVE-2018-12377)

* Mozilla: Use-after-free in IndexedDB (CVE-2018-12378)

* Mozilla: Proxy bypass using automount and autofs (CVE-2017-16541)

specially crafted HTML mail, as JavaScript is disabled for mail messages
and cannot be enabled. They could be exploited another way in Thunderbird,
for example, when viewing the remote content of an RSS feed.
