Mozilla / Mozilla Firefox Frame Injection Vulnerability



Moderately critical


From remote

Mozilla Firefox 1.x
Mozilla 1.7.x

A seven year old vulnerability has been re-introduced in Mozilla and
Firefox, which can be exploited by malicious people to spoof the
contents of web sites.

For more information:

Secunia has constructed a test, which can be used to check if your
browser is affected:

The vulnerability has been confirmed in Firefox 1.0.4 and Mozilla
1.7.8. Other versions may also be affected.

Do not browse untrusted web sites while browsing trusted sites.

Reported in Firefox by:

Was fixed by bug 246448 in Mozilla 1.7 and remained fixed through Firefox 1.0.2
Firefox 1.0.3 and Mozilla 1.7.7 are vulnerable again

Fixed on trunk and branches as of 2005-06-08.
Waiting for a release.
Comment 2 Stefan Cornelius (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-07-12 21:28:31 UTC
Mozilla released a new version today, this and several other (also critical)
vulnerabilities seem to be fixed in 1.0.5.
Comment 3 Jory A. Pratt 2005-07-12 22:42:56 UTC
firefox-1.0.5 binary ebuild update. Will bump source as soon as mirrors are
seeded and we have a download for it.

Comment 7 Giacomo Perale 2005-07-13 03:19:12 UTC
Any chance to see the enhancements of bug #86070 in the new firefox ebuild?
Comment 8 Jory A. Pratt 2005-07-13 09:24:57 UTC
this is a security bump no time to add enhancemen. Source build is in portage
when security team is ready we can call for archs to stabilize.
Comment 9 Sune Kloppenborg Jeppesen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-07-13 09:52:46 UTC
Arches please test and mark stable.

Wouldn't it be a good idea to add a glsa so that hopefully all users will update?
