Description Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-01-30 01:50:43 UTC
A vulnerability in the chrome protocol scheme allows directory traversal when a “flat” add-on is present resulting in potential information disclosure.

An attacker can use this vulnerability to collect session information, including session cookies and session history.  Firefox is not vulnerable by default.  

Based on this new information Mozilla has changed the security severity rating to high.  A fix is included in Firefox which be available shortly.

Comment 1 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-01-30 01:51:55 UTC
I assume this also affects Linux, but the POC is for Windows only.
Mozilla herd, can you advise here? Otherwise, we'd have to dig into that.
Comment 2 Raúl Porcel (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-01-30 14:14:28 UTC
I've been told this affects Linux as well, a release is expected for monday.
Comment 3 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-01-30 15:50:09 UTC
Thanks, let's wait then.
Comment 4 Lars Wendler (Polynomial-C) gentoo-dev 2008-02-08 09:21:44 UTC

www-client/seamonkey is also affected by this. Should seamonkey get its own bugreport or can someone add seamonkey to this bug?
firefox- and seamonkey-1.1.8 have been released and both contain fixes for this bug.

         The browser engine in Mozilla Firefox before, Thunderbird
         before, and SeaMonkey before 1.1.8 allows remote attackers to
         cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly trigger memory
         corruption via vectors related to the (1)
         nsTableFrame::GetFrameAtOrBefore, (2)
         nsAccessibilityService::GetAccessible, (3)
         nsBindingManager::GetNestedInsertionPoint, (4)
         nsXBLPrototypeBinding::AttributeChanged, (5)
         nsColumnSetFrame::GetContentInsertionFrame, and (6)
         nsLineLayout::TrimTrailingWhiteSpaceIn methods, and other vectors.
         The JavaScript engine in Mozilla Firefox before, Thunderbird
         before, and SeaMonkey before 1.1.8 allows remote attackers to
         cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly trigger memory
         corruption via (1) a large switch statement, (2) certain uses of watch
         and eval, (3) certain uses of the mousedown event listener, and other
         Mozilla Firefox before and SeaMonkey before 1.1.8 allows
         user-assisted remote attackers to trick the user into uploading
         arbitrary files via label tags that shift focus to a file input field,
         aka "focus spoofing."
         Mozilla Firefox before, Thunderbird before, and
         SeaMonkey before 1.1.8 allows remote attackers to execute script
         outside of the sandbox and conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks
         via multiple vectors including the XMLDocument.load function, aka
         "JavaScript privilege escalation bugs."
         CRLF injection vulnerability in Mozilla Firefox before allows
         remote user-assisted web sites to corrupt the user's password store
         via newlines that are not properly handled when the user saves a
         Directory traversal vulnerability in Mozilla Firefox before,
         Thunderbird before, and SeaMonkey before 1.1.8, when using
         "flat" addons, allows remote attackers to read arbitrary Javascript,
         image, and stylesheet files via the chrome: URI scheme, as
         demonstrated by stealing session information from sessionstore.js.
         Mozilla Firefox before and SeaMonkey before 1.1.8 allows
         remote attackers to steal navigation history and cause a denial of
         service (crash) via images in a page that uses designMode frames,
         which triggers memory corruption related to resize handles.
         Mozilla Firefox before and Thunderbird before allows
         user-assisted remote attackers to cause users to confirm a
         timer-enabled security dialog by using a timer to change the window
         Mozilla Firefox before and SeaMonkey before 1.1.8 allows
         user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a
         plain .txt file with a "Content-Disposition: attachment" and an
         invalid "Content-Type: plain/text," which prevents Firefox from
         rendering future plain text files within the browser.
         Gecko-based browsers, including Mozilla Firefox before and
         SeaMonkey before 1.1.8, modifies the .href property of stylesheet DOM
         nodes to the final URI of a 302 redirect, which might allow remote
         attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy and read sensitive
         information from the original URL, such as with Single-Signon systems.
         Mozilla Firefox before does not always display a web forgery
         warning dialog if the entire contents of a web page are in a DIV tag
         that uses absolute positioning, which makes it easier for remote
         attackers to conduct phishing attacks.

CVE-2008-0304 (
  Heap-based buffer overflow in Mozilla Thunderbird before and

modules/libpr0n/decoders/bmp/nsBMPDecoder.cpp in Mozilla Firefox before, Thunderbird before, and SeaMonkey before 1.1.8 does not properly perform certain calculations related to the mColors table, which allows remote attackers to read portions of memory uninitialized via a crafted 8-bit bitmap (BMP) file that triggers an out-of-bounds read within the heap, as demonstrated using a CANVAS element; or cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted 8-bit bitmap file that triggers an out-of-bounds read. NOTE: the initial public reports stated that this affected Firefox in Ubuntu 6.06 through 7.10.
