Fedora Legacy Update Advisory

Synopsis: Updated mozilla packages fix security issues
Advisory ID: FLSA:168375
Issue date: 2006-01-09
Product: Red Hat Linux, Fedora Core
Keywords: Bugfix
CVE Names: CVE-2005-2701 CVE-2005-2702 CVE-2005-2703
CVE-2005-2704 CVE-2005-2705 CVE-2005-2706
CVE-2005-2707 CVE-2005-2871 CVE-2005-3089

---------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Topic:

Updated mozilla packages that fix several security 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 processes XBM image files. If a user
views a specially crafted XBM file, it becomes possible to execute
arbitrary code as the user running Mozilla. The Common Vulnerabilities
and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CVE-2005-2701 to this issue.

A bug was found in the way Mozilla processes certain Unicode sequences.
It may be possible to execute arbitrary code as the user running
Mozilla, if the user views a specially crafted Unicode sequence.
(CVE-2005-2702)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla makes XMLHttp requests. It is
possible that a malicious web page could leverage this flaw to exploit
other proxy or server flaws from the victim's machine. It is also
possible that this flaw could be leveraged to send XMLHttp requests to
hosts other than the originator; the default behavior of the browser is
to disallow this. (CVE-2005-2703)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla implemented its XBL interface. It may
be possible for a malicious web page to create an XBL binding in a way
that would allow arbitrary JavaScript execution with chrome permissions.
Please note that in Mozilla 1.7.10 this issue is not directly
exploitable and would need to leverage other unknown exploits.
(CVE-2005-2704)

An integer overflow bug was found in Mozilla's JavaScript engine. Under
favorable conditions, it may be possible for a malicious web page to
execute arbitrary code as the user running Mozilla. (CVE-2005-2705)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla displays about: pages. It is possible
for a malicious web page to open an about: page, such as about:mozilla,
in such a way that it becomes possible to execute JavaScript with chrome
privileges. (CVE-2005-2706)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla opens new windows. It is possible for
a malicious web site to construct a new window without any user
interface components, such as the address bar and the status bar. This
window could then be used to mislead the user for malicious purposes.
(CVE-2005-2707)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla processes certain international
domain names. An attacker could create a specially crafted HTML file,
which when viewed by the victim would cause Mozilla to crash or possibly
execute arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-2871 to this issue.

Users of Mozilla are advised to upgrade to these updated packages that
contain Mozilla version 1.7.12 and are not vulnerable to 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 http://www.fedoralegacy.org/docs for directions on how to
configure yum and apt-get.
