CVE Reference:   CVE-2013-5609, CVE-2013-5610, CVE-2013-5612, CVE-2013-5613, CVE-2013-5614, CVE-2013-5615, CVE-2013-5616, CVE-2013-5618, CVE-2013-5619, CVE-2013-6629, CVE-2013-6630, CVE-2013-6671, CVE-2013-6672, CVE-2013-6673   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Dec 11 2013
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): prior to 2.23
Description:   Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in Mozilla Seamonkey. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

A remote user can create specially crafted HTML that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target system. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

Some memory corruption errors may occur [CVE-2013-5609, CVE-2013-5610, CVE-2013-5613, CVE-2013-6671].

A web page can inherit character encodings across navigations into another domain from a previously visited site [CVE-2013-5612].

Iframe sandbox tag restrictions are not applied to an object element within a sandboxed iframe. A remote user may be able to bypass sandbox restrictions [CVE-2013-5614].

A heap-use-after-free may occur in!nsEventListenerManager::HandleEventSubType() [CVE-2013-5616].

A use-after-free may occur in nsNodeUtils::LastRelease() [CVE-2013-5618].

An overflow may occur in the SpiderMonkey JavaScript engine [CVE-2013-5619].

On Linux-based systems, a script can read clipboard data in certain cases [CVE-2013-6672].

The system will trust extended validation root certificates even if the user has explicitly removed their trust [CVE-2013-6673].

Unpredictable behavior may occur during JavaScript compilation, as GetElementIC typed array stubs can be generated outside observed typesets [CVE-2013-5615].

The Start Of Scan (SOS) and Define Huffman Table (DHT) markers in the libjpeg library are not properly processed. A remote user may be able to read arbitrary memory content [CVE-2013-6629, CVE-2013-6630].

The browser includes an invalid subordinate certificate issued by Directorate General of the Treasury (DG Tresor), subordinate to the Government of France CA (ANSSI). Unauthorized digital certificates derived from this certificate authority are being actively used in attacks against various Google domains. The vulnerability is due to the certificate authority and not the browser itself.

Ben Turner, Bobby Holley, Jesse Ruderman, Christian Holler, Christoph Diehl, Myk Melez, Masato Kinugawa, Daniel Veditz, Tyson Smith and Jesse Schwartzentruber of the
BlackBerry Security Automated Analysis Team, Nils, Dan Gohman, Vincent Lefevre, Sijie Xia, Atte Kettunen from OUSPG, Eric Faust, and Michal Zalewski reported these vulnerabilities.

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

A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with a target site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (2.23).

The vendor's advisories are available at:

Cause:   Access control error, Input validation error
Underlying OS:  Linux (Any), UNIX (Any), Windows (Any)
