-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Debian Security Advisory DSA 1134-1 Martin Schulze August 2nd, 2006 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Package : mozilla-thunderbird Vulnerability : several Problem type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE IDs : CVE-2006-1942 CVE-2006-2775 CVE-2006-2776 CVE-2006-2777 CVE-2006-2778 CVE-2006-2779 CVE-2006-2780 CVE-2006-2781 CVE-2006-2782 CVE-2006-2783 CVE-2006-2784 CVE-2006-2785 CVE-2006-2786 CVE-2006-2787 CERT advisories: VU#237257 VU#243153 VU#421529 VU#466673 VU#575969 BugTraq ID : 18228 Several security related problems have been discovered in Mozilla which are also present in Mozilla Thunderbird. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following vulnerabilities: CVE-2006-1942 Eric Foley discovered that a user can be tricked to expose a local file to a remote attacker by displaying a local file as image in connection with other vulnerabilities. [MFSA-2006-39] CVE-2006-2775 XUL attributes are associated with the wrong URL under certain circumstances, which might allow remote attackers to bypass restrictions. [MFSA-2006-35] CVE-2006-2776 Paul Nickerson discovered that content-defined setters on an object prototype were getting called by privileged user interface code, and "moz_bug_r_a4" demonstrated that the higher privilege level could be passed along to the content-defined attack code. [MFSA-2006-37] CVE-2006-2777 A vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code and create notifications that are executed in a privileged context. [MFSA-2006-43] CVE-2006-2778 Mikolaj Habryn a buffer overflow in the crypto.signText function that allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via certain optional Certificate Authority name arguments. [MFSA-2006-38] CVE-2006-2779 Mozilla team members discovered several crashes during testing of the browser engine showing evidence of memory corruption which may also lead to the execution of arbitrary code. This problem has only partially been corrected. [MFSA-2006-32] CVE-2006-2780 An integer overflow allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service and may permit the execution of arbitrary code. [MFSA-2006-32] CVE-2006-2781 Masatoshi Kimura discovered a double-free vulnerability that allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code via a VCard. [MFSA-2006-40] CVE-2006-2782 Chuck McAuley discovered that a text input box can be pre-filled with a filename and then turned into a file-upload control, allowing a malicious website to steal any local file whose name they can guess. [MFSA-2006-41, MFSA-2006-23, CVE-2006-1729] CVE-2006-2783 Masatoshi Kimura discovered that the Unicode Byte-order-Mark (BOM) is stripped from UTF-8 pages during the conversion to Unicode before the parser sees the web page, which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. [MFSA-2006-42] CVE-2006-2784 Paul Nickerson discovered that the fix for CAN-2005-0752 can be bypassed using nested javascript: URLs, allowing the attacker to execute privileged code. [MFSA-2005-34, MFSA-2006-36] CVE-2006-2785 Paul Nickerson demonstrated that if an attacker could convince a user to right-click on a broken image and choose "View Image" from the context menu then he could get JavaScript to run. [MFSA-2006-34] CVE-2006-2786 Kazuho Oku discovered that Mozilla's lenient handling of HTTP header syntax may allow remote attackers to trick the browser to interpret certain responses as if they were responses from two different sites. [MFSA-2006-33] CVE-2006-2787 The Mozilla researcher "moz_bug_r_a4" discovered that JavaScript run via EvalInSandbox can escape the sandbox and gain elevated privilege. [MFSA-2006-31] For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in version 1.0.2-2.sarge1.0.8a. For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version and xulrunner for galeon and epiphany. We recommend that you upgrade your Mozilla Thunderbird packages. Upgrade Instructions - -------------------- wget url will fetch the file for you dpkg -i file.deb will install the referenced file. If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for sources.list as given at the end of this advisory: apt-get update will update the internal database apt-get upgrade will install corrected packages You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the footer to the proper configuration.
