1) Problem Description and Brief Discussion

Mozilla Firefox was updated to version 2.0.0.15, fixing various bugs
including following security bugs.

CVE-2008-2798 CVE-2008-2799 MFSA 2008-21:
Mozilla developers identified and fixed several stability bugs in the
browser engine used in Firefox and other Mozilla-based products. Some
of these crashes showed evidence of memory corruption under certain
circumstances and we presume that with enough effort at least some
of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code.

CVE-2008-2800 MFSA 2008-22:
Mozilla contributor moz_bug_r_a4 submitted a set of vulnerabilities
which allow scripts from one document to be executed in the context
of a different document. These vulnerabilities could be used by an
attacker to violate the same-origin policy and perform an XSS attack.

CVE-2008-2801 MFSA 2008-23:
Security researcher Collin Jackson reported a series of vulnerabilities
which allow JavaScript to be injected into signed JARs and executed
under the context of the JAR's signer. This could allow an attacker
to run JavaScript in a victim's browser with the privileges of a
different website, provided the attacker possesses a JAR signed by
the other website.

CVE-2008-2802 MFSA 2008-24:
Mozilla contributor moz_bug_r_a4 reported a vulnerability that
allowed non-privileged XUL documents to load chrome scripts from
the fastload file. This could allow an attacker to run arbitrary
JavaScript code with chrome privileges.

CVE-2008-2803 MFSA 2008-25:
Mozilla contributor moz_bug_r_a4 reported a vulnerability which allows
arbitrary JavaScript to be executed with chrome privileges. The
privilege escalation was possible because JavaScript loaded via
mozIJSSubScriptLoader.loadSubScript() was not using XPCNativeWrappers
when accessing content. This could allow an attacker to overwrite
trusted objects with arbitrary code which would be executed with
chrome privileges when the trusted objects were called by the browser.

CVE-2008-2805 MFSA 2008-27:
Opera developer Claudio Santambrogio reported a vulnerability which
allows malicious content to force the browser into uploading local
files to the remote server. This could be used by an attacker to
steal arbitrary files from a victim's computer.

CVE-2008-2806 MFSA 2008-28:
Security researcher Gregory Fleischer reported a vulnerability
in the way Mozilla indicates the origin of a document to the Java
plugin. This vulnerability could allow a malicious Java applet to
bypass the same-origin policy and create arbitrary socket connections
to other domains.

CVE-2008-2807 MFSA 2008-29:
Mozilla developer Daniel Glazman demonstrated that an improperly
encoded .properties file in an add-on can result in uninitialized
memory being used. This could potentially result in small chunks of
data from other programs being exposed in the browser.

CVE-2008-2808 MFSA 2008-30:
Mozilla contributor Masahiro Yamada reported that file URLs in
directory listings were not being HTML escaped properly when the
filenames contained particular characters. This resulted in files
from directory listings being opened in unintended ways or files not
being able to be opened by the browser altogether.

CVE-2008-2809 MFSA 2008-31:
Mozilla developer John G. Myers reported a weakness in the trust
model used by Mozilla regarding alternate names on self-signed
certificates. A user could be prompted to accept a self-signed
certificate from a website which includes alt-name entries. If
the user accepted the certificate, they would also extend trust to
any alternate domains listed in the certificate, despite not being
prompted about the additional domains. This technique could be used
by an attacker to impersonate another server.

CVE-2008-2810 MFSA 2008-32:
Mozilla community member Geoff reported a vulnerability in the way
Mozilla opens URL files sent directly to the browser. He demonstrated
that such files were opened with local file privileges, giving the
remote content access to read from the local filesystem. If a user
opened a bookmark to a malicious page in this manner, the page could
potentially read from other local files on the user's computer.

CVE-2008-2811 MFSA 2008-33:
Security research firm Astabis, via the iSIGHT Partners GVP Program,
reported a vulnerability in Mozilla's block reflow code. This
vulnerability could be used by an attacker to crash the browser and
run arbitrary code on the victim's computer.

2) Solution or Work-Around

There is no known workaround, please install the update packages.

3) Special Instructions and Notes

Please close and restart all running instances of Firefox after the update.

4) Package Location and Checksums

The preferred method for installing security updates is to use the YaST
Online Update (YOU) tool. YOU detects which updates are required and
automatically performs the necessary steps to verify and install them.
Alternatively, download the update packages for your distribution manually
and verify their integrity by the methods listed in Section 6 of this
announcement. Then install the packages using the command

rpm -Fhv <file.rpm>

to apply the update, replacing <file.rpm> with the filename of the
downloaded RPM package.

6) Authenticity Verification and Additional Information

- Announcement authenticity verification:

SUSE security announcements are published via mailing lists and on Web
sites. The authenticity and integrity of a SUSE security announcement is
guaranteed by a cryptographic signature in each announcement. All SUSE
security announcements are published with a valid signature.

To verify the signature of the announcement, save it as text into a file
and run the command

gpg --verify <file>

replacing <file> with the name of the file where you saved the
announcement. The output for a valid signature looks like:

gpg: Signature made <DATE> using RSA key ID 3D25D3D9
gpg: Good signature from "SuSE Security Team <security@xxxxxxx>"

where <DATE> is replaced by the date the document was signed.

If the security team's key is not contained in your key ring, you can
import it from the first installation CD. To import the key, use the
command

gpg --import gpg-pubkey-3d25d3d9-36e12d04.asc

- Package authenticity verification:

SUSE update packages are available on many mirror FTP servers all over the
world. While this service is considered valuable and important to the free
and open source software community, the authenticity and the integrity of
a package needs to be verified to ensure that it has not been tampered
with.

The internal rpm package signatures provide an easy way to verify the
authenticity of an RPM package. Use the command

rpm -v --checksig <file.rpm>

to verify the signature of the package, replacing <file.rpm> with the
filename of the RPM package downloaded. The package is unmodified if it
contains a valid signature from build@xxxxxxx with the key ID 9C800ACA.

This key is automatically imported into the RPM database (on
RPMv4-based distributions) and the gpg key ring of 'root' during
installation. You can also find it on the first installation CD and at
the end of this announcement.

- SUSE runs two security mailing lists to which any interested party may
subscribe:

opensuse-security@xxxxxxxxxxxx
- General Linux and SUSE security discussion.
All SUSE security announcements are sent to this list.
To subscribe, send an e-mail to
