--------------------------------------------------------------------- Fedora Legacy Update Advisory Synopsis: Updated mozilla packages fix security issues Advisory ID: FLSA:152883 Issue date: 2005-05-18 Product: Red Hat Linux, Fedora Core Keywords: Bugfix CVE Names: CAN-2004-0906 CAN-2004-1156 CAN-2004-1316 CAN-2004-1380 CAN-2004-1613 CAN-2005-0141 CAN-2005-0142 CAN-2005-0578 CAN-2005-0143 CAN-2005-0593 CAN-2005-0144 CAN-2005-0146 CAN-2005-0147 CAN-2005-0149 CAN-2005-0231 CAN-2005-0232 CAN-2005-0527 CAN-2005-0233 CAN-2005-0399 CAN-2005-0401 CAN-2005-0584 CAN-2005-0585 CAN-2005-0586 CAN-2005-0590 CAN-2005-0591 CAN-2005-0588 CAN-2005-0989 CAN-2005-1153 CAN-2005-1154 CAN-2005-1155 CAN-2005-1159 CAN-2005-1160 CAN-2005-1156 CAN-2005-1157 --------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. Topic: Updated mozilla packages that fix various bugs are now available. Mozilla is an open source Web browser, advanced email and newsgroup client, IRC chat client, and HTML editor. 2. Relevant releases/architectures: Red Hat Linux 7.3 - i386 Red Hat Linux 9 - i386 Fedora Core 1 - i386 Fedora Core 2 - i386 3. Problem description: A bug was found in the way Mozilla sets file permissions when installing XPI packages. It is possible for an XPI package to install some files world readable or writable, allowing a malicious local user to steal information or execute arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project ( has assigned the name CAN-2004-0906 to this issue. A bug was found in the way Mozilla handles pop-up windows. It is possible for a malicious website to control the content in an unrelated site's pop-up window. (CAN-2004-1156) iSEC Security Research has discovered a buffer overflow bug in the way Mozilla handles NNTP URLs. If a user visits a malicious web page or is convinced to click on a malicious link, it may be possible for an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the victim's machine. (CAN-2004-1316) A bug was found in the way Mozilla displays dialog windows. It is possible that a malicious web page which is being displayed in a background tab could present the user with a dialog window appearing to come from the active page. (CAN-2004-1380) A bug was found in the way Mozilla handles certain start tags followed by a NULL character. A malicious web page could cause Mozilla to crash when viewed by a victim. (CAN-2004-1613) A bug was found in the way Mozilla loads links in a new tab which are middle clicked. A malicious web page could read local files or modify privileged chrom settings. (CAN-2005-0141) Several bugs were found with the way Mozilla handles temporary files. A local user could view sensitive temporary information or delete arbitrary files. (CAN-2005-0142 CAN-2005-0578) Several bugs were found with the way Mozilla displays the secure site icon. It is possible that a malicious website could display the secure site icon along with incorrect certificate information. (CAN-2005-0143 CAN-2005-0593) A bug was found in the way Mozilla displays the secure site icon. A malicious web page can use a view-source URL targetted at a secure page, while loading an insecure page, yet the secure site icon shows the previous secure state. (CAN-2005-0144) A bug was found in the way Mozilla handles synthetic middle click events. It is possible for a malicious web page to steal the contents of a victims clipboard. (CAN-2005-0146) A bug was found in the way Mozilla responds to proxy auth requests. It is possible for a malicious webserver to steal credentials from a victims browser by issuing a 407 proxy authentication request. (CAN-2005-0147) A bug was found in the way Mozilla Mail handles cookies when loading content over HTTP regardless of the user's preference. It is possible that a particular user could be tracked through the use of malicious mail messages which load content over HTTP. (CAN-2005-0149) A bug was found in the Mozilla javascript security manager. If a user drags a malicious link to a tab, the javascript security manager is bypassed, which could result in remote code execution or information disclosure. (CAN-2005-0231) A bug was found in the way Mozilla allows plug-ins to load privileged content into a frame. It is possible that a malicious webpage could trick a user into clicking in certain places to modify configuration settings or execute arbitrary code. (CAN-2005-0232 and CAN-2005-0527) A flaw was found in the way Mozilla displays international domain names. It is possible for an attacker to display a valid URL, tricking the user into thinking they are viewing a legitimate webpage when they are not. (CAN-2005-0233) A buffer overflow bug was found in the way Mozilla processes GIF images. It is possible for an attacker to create a specially crafted GIF image, which when viewed by a victim will execute arbitrary code as the victim. (CAN-2005-0399) A bug was found in the way Mozilla processes XUL content. If a malicious web page can trick a user into dragging an object, it is possible to load malicious XUL content. (CAN-2005-0401) Several bugs were found in the way Mozilla displays alert dialogs. It is possible for a malicious webserver or website to trick a user into thinking the dialog window is being generated from a trusted site. (CAN-2005-0584 CAN-2005-0585 CAN-2005-0586 CAN-2005-0590 CAN-2005-0591) A bug was found in the way Mozilla handles xsl:include and xsl:import directives. It is possible for a malicious website to import XSLT stylesheets from a domain behind a firewall, leaking information to an attacker. (CAN-2005-0588) A bug was found in the way Mozilla handles anonymous functions during regular expression string replacement. It is possible for a malicious web page to capture a random block of browser memory. (CAN-2005-0989) A bug was found in the way Mozilla displays pop-up windows. If a user choses to open a pop-up window whose URL is malicious javascript, the script will be executed with elevated privileges. (CAN-2005-1153) Several bugs were found in the Mozilla javascript engine. A malicious web page could leverage these issues to execute javascript with elevated privileges or steal sensitive information. (CAN-2005-1154 CAN-2005-1155 CAN-2005-1159 CAN-2005-1160) A bug was found in the way Mozilla installed search plugins. If a user chooses to install a search plugin from a malicious site, the new plugin could silently overwrite an existing plugin. This could allow the malicious plugin to execute arbitrary code and stealm sensitive information. (CAN-2005-1156 CAN-2005-1157) Users of Mozilla are advised to upgrade to this updated package which contains Mozilla version 1.7.7 to correct these issues. 4. Solution: Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevant to your system have been applied. To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run: rpm -Fvh [filenames] where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the desired RPMs. Please note that this update is also available via yum and apt. Many people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use yum issue: yum update or to use apt: apt-get update; apt-get upgrade This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system. This assumes that you have yum or apt-get configured for obtaining Fedora Legacy content. Please visit for directions on how to configure yum and apt-get. 5. Bug IDs fixed: 6.
