Description Coacher 2015-03-21 20:21:09 UTC

Firefox-31.5.2 was released recently with fixes for vulnerabilities disclosed at Pwn2Own contest:

Also there is a security advisory regarding 31.5.3 version with additional security fixes, but no release announcement yet:

Probably release announcement will follow shortly, but sources are already there:

Please bump straight to 31.5.3.

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Coacher 2015-03-21 20:22:12 UTC
Update: mozilla has just posted release notes for 31.5.3:

Arches, please stabilize:
Stable targets: amd64 arm hppa ia64 ppc ppc64 x86

Stable targets: amd64 x86

We seem to be missing ebuilds for firefox-bin and seamonkey-bin

CVE-2015-0818 (
  Mozilla Firefox before 36.0.4, Firefox ESR 31.x before 31.5.3, and SeaMonkey
  before 2.33.1 allow remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy and
  execute arbitrary JavaScript code with chrome privileges via vectors
  involving SVG hash navigation.

CVE-2015-0817 (
  The asm.js implementation in Mozilla Firefox before 36.0.3, Firefox ESR 31.x
  before 31.5.2, and SeaMonkey before 2.33.1 does not properly determine the
  cases in which bounds checking may be safely skipped during JIT compilation
  and heap access, which allows remote attackers to read or write to
  unintended memory locations, and consequently execute arbitrary code, via
  crafted JavaScript.
