Synopsis: Critical: firefox security update Advisory ID: SLSA-2013:0981-1 Issue Date: 2013-06-25 CVE Numbers: CVE-2013-1682 CVE-2013-1684 CVE-2013-1685 CVE-2013-1686 CVE-2013-1687 CVE-2013-1690 CVE-2013-1692 CVE-2013-1693 CVE-2013-1694 CVE-2013-1697 -- Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2013-1682, CVE-2013-1684, CVE-2013-1685, CVE-2013-1686, CVE-2013-1687, CVE-2013-1690) It was found that Firefox allowed data to be sent in the body of XMLHttpRequest (XHR) HEAD requests. In some cases this could allow attackers to conduct Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) attacks. (CVE-2013-1692) Timing differences in the way Firefox processed SVG image files could allow an attacker to read data across domains, potentially leading to information disclosure. (CVE-2013-1693) Two flaws were found in the way Firefox implemented some of its internal structures (called wrappers). An attacker could use these flaws to bypass some restrictions placed on them. This could lead to unexpected behavior or a potentially exploitable crash. (CVE-2013-1694, CVE-2013-1697) 0.7 ESR, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect. -- SL5 x86_64 firefox-17.0.7-1.el5_9.i386.rpm firefox-17.0.7-1.el5_9.x86_64.rpm firefox-debuginfo-17.0.7-1.el5_9.i386.rpm firefox-debuginfo-17.0.7-1.el5_9.x86_64.rpm xulrunner-17.0.7-1.el5_9.i386.rpm xulrunner-17.0.7-1.el5_9.x86_64.rpm xulrunner-debuginfo-17.0.7-1.el5_9.i386.rpm xulrunner-debuginfo-17.0.7-1.el5_9.x86_64.rpm xulrunner-devel-17.0.7-1.el5_9.i386.rpm xulrunner-devel-17.0.7-1.el5_9.x86_64.rpm i386 firefox-17.0.7-1.el5_9.i386.rpm firefox-debuginfo-17.0.7-1.el5_9.i386.rpm xulrunner-17.0.7-1.el5_9.i386.rpm xulrunner-debuginfo-17.0.7-1.el5_9.i386.rpm xulrunner-devel-17.0.7-1.el5_9.i386.rpm SL6 x86_64 firefox-17.0.7-1.el6_4.i686.rpm firefox-17.0.7-1.el6_4.x86_64.rpm firefox-debuginfo-17.0.7-1.el6_4.i686.rpm firefox-debuginfo-17.0.7-1.el6_4.x86_64.rpm xulrunner-17.0.7-1.el6_4.i686.rpm xulrunner-17.0.7-1.el6_4.x86_64.rpm xulrunner-debuginfo-17.0.7-1.el6_4.i686.rpm xulrunner-debuginfo-17.0.7-1.el6_4.x86_64.rpm xulrunner-devel-17.0.7-1.el6_4.i686.rpm xulrunner-devel-17.0.7-1.el6_4.x86_64.rpm i386 firefox-17.0.7-1.el6_4.i686.rpm firefox-debuginfo-17.0.7-1.el6_4.i686.rpm xulrunner-17.0.7-1.el6_4.i686.rpm xulrunner-debuginfo-17.0.7-1.el6_4.i686.rpm xulrunner-devel-17.0.7-1.el6_4.i686.rpm - Scientific Linux Development Team
