1) Problem Description and Brief Discussion

This security update updates various Mozilla Browsers to their current
security release.

- The Mozilla Firefox 3.0.x browser was updated to version 3.0.4
- The Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.x browsers were updated to version 2.0.0.18
- On Novell Linux Desktop 9, the security patches were backported to
Mozilla Firefox 1.5.0.14.
- Mozilla Thunderbird was updated to version 2.0.0.18.
- Mozilla Seamonkey was updated to version 1.1.13.
- mozilla-xulrunner190 was updated to version 1.9.0.4
- mozilla-xulrunner181 and mozilla-xulrunner were updated to include
all security fixes.
- On SUSE Linux Enterprise 9, the mozilla suite received backports
of all security fixes.

The update fixes following security issues:

CVE-2008-5012 / MFSA 2008-48: Mozilla Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18,
Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 do not
properly change the source URI when processing a canvas element and an
HTTP redirect, which allows remote attackers to bypass the same origin
policy and access arbitrary images that are not directly accessible
to the attacker. NOTE: this issue can be leveraged to enumerate
software on the client by performing redirections related to moz-icon.


CVE-2008-5013 / MFSA 2008-49: Mozilla Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18
and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 do not properly check when the Flash
module has been dynamically unloaded properly, which allows remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted SWF file that
"dynamically unloads itself from an outside JavaScript function,"
which triggers an access of an expired memory address.


CVE-2008-5014 / MFSA 2008-50 jslock.cpp in Mozilla Firefox 3.x before
3.0.2, Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18, Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18,
and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 allows remote attackers to cause
a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code by
modifying the window.__proto__.__proto__ object in a way that causes
a lock on a non-native object, which triggers an assertion failure
related to the OBJ_IS_NATIVE function.


CVE-2008-5015 / MFSA 2008-51: Mozilla Firefox 3.x before 3.0.4 assigns
chrome privileges to a file: URI when it is accessed in the same tab
from a chrome or privileged about: page, which makes it easier for
user-assisted attackers to execute arbitrary JavaScript with chrome
privileges via malicious code in a file that has already been saved
on the local system.

CVE-2008-5016 / MFSA 2008-52: The layout engine in Mozilla Firefox
3.x before 3.0.4, Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x
before 1.1.13 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(crash) via multiple vectors that trigger an assertion failure or
other consequences.

CVE-2008-5017 / MFSA 2008-52: Integer overflow in xpcom/io/nsEscape.cpp
in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox 3.x before 3.0.4, Firefox
2.x before 2.0.0.18, Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey
1.x before 1.1.13 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(crash) via unknown vectors.

CVE-2008-5018 / MFSA 2008-52: The JavaScript engine in Mozilla Firefox
3.x before 3.0.4, Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18, Thunderbird 2.x before
2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 allows remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (crash) via vectors related to "insufficient
class checking" in the Date class.

CVE-2008-5052 / MFSA 2008-52: The AppendAttributeValue function
in the JavaScript engine in Mozilla Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18,
Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via
unknown vectors that trigger memory corruption, as demonstrated by
e4x/extensions/regress-410192.js.

CVE-2008-5019 / MFSA 2008-53: The session restore feature in Mozilla
Firefox 3.x before 3.0.4 and 2.x before 2.0.0.18 allows remote
attackers to violate the same origin policy to conduct cross-site
scripting (XSS) attacks and execute arbitrary JavaScript with chrome
privileges via unknown vectors.

CVE-2008-0017 / MFSA 2008-54: The http-index-format MIME type parser
(nsDirIndexParser) in Firefox 3.x before 3.0.4, Firefox 2.x before
2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 does not check for an
allocation failure, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via an HTTP index
response with a crafted 200 header, which triggers memory corruption
and a buffer overflow.

CVE-2008-5021 / MFSA 2008-55: nsFrameManager in Firefox 3.x before
3.0.4, Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18, Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18,
and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 allows remote attackers to cause
a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code by
modifying properties of a file input element while it is still being
initialized, then using the blur method to access uninitialized memory.

CVE-2008-5022 / MFSA 2008-56: The
nsXMLHttpRequest::NotifyEventListeners method in Firefox 3.x before
3.0.4, Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18, Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18,
and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 allows remote attackers to bypass the
same-origin policy and execute arbitrary script via multiple listeners,
which bypass the inner window check.

CVE-2008-5023 / MFSA 2008-57: Firefox 3.x before 3.0.4, Firefox
2.x before 2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 allows remote
attackers to bypass the protection mechanism for code base principals
and execute arbitrary script via the -moz-binding CSS property in a
signed JAR file.

CVE-2008-5024 / MFSA 2008-58: Mozilla Firefox 3.x before 3.0.4,
Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18, Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18, and
SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 do not properly escape quote characters
used for XML processing, allows remote attackers to conduct XML
injection attacks via the default namespace in an E4X document.

MFSA 2008-59: Mozilla developer Boris Zbarsky reported that a malicious
mail message might be able to glean personal information about the
recipient from the mailbox URI (such as computer account name) if
the mail recipient has enabled JavaScript in mail. If a malicious
mail is forwarded &quot;in-line&quot; to a recipient who has enabled
JavaScript, then comments added by the forwarder could be accessed
by scripts in the message and potentially revealed to the original
malicious author if that message has also been allowed to load remote
content. Scripts in mail messages no longer have access to the DOM
properties .documentURI and .textContent. This problem affects only
Mozilla Thunderbird.

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 Mozilla programs 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
<opensuse-security+subscribe@xxxxxxxxxxxx>.

opensuse-security-announce@xxxxxxxxxxxx
- SUSE's announce-only mailing list.
Only SUSE's security announcements are sent to this list.
To subscribe, send an e-mail to
<opensuse-security-announce+subscribe@xxxxxxxxxxxx>.

=====================================================================
SUSE's security contact is <security@xxxxxxxx> or <security@xxxxxxx>.
The <security@xxxxxxx> public key is listed below.
