An update that fixes 12 vulnerabilities is now available.
It includes three new package versions.

Description:


Mozilla Firefox was updated to 10.0.3 ESR to fix various
bugs and security issues.

The following security issues have been fixed:

*

MFSA 2012-19: Mozilla developers identified and fixed
several memory safety bugs in the browser engine used in
Firefox and other Mozilla-based products. Some of these
bugs 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.

In general these flaws cannot be exploited through
email in the Thunderbird and SeaMonkey products because
scripting is disabled, but are potentially a risk in
browser or browser-like contexts in those products.

References:

Bob Clary reported two bugs that causes crashes that
affected Firefox 3.6, Firefox ESR, and Firefox 10.
CVE-2012-0461

Christian Holler, Jesse Ruderman, Nils, Michael
Bebenita, Dindog, and David Anderson reported memory safety
problems and crashes that affect Firefox ESR and Firefox
10. CVE-2012-0462

Jeff Walden reported a memory safety problem in the
array.join function. This bug was independently reported by
Vincenzo Iozzo via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative
Pwn2Own contest. CVE-2012-0464

Masayuki Nakano reported a memory safety problem that
affected Mobile Firefox

*

CVE-2012-0463

*

MFSA 2012-18 / CVE-2012-0460: Mozilla developer Matt
Brubeck reported that window.fullScreen is writeable by
untrusted content now that the DOM fullscreen API is
enabled. Because window.fullScreen does not include
mozRequestFullscreen's security protections, it could be
used for UI spoofing. This code change makes
window.fullScreen read only by untrusted content, forcing
the use of the DOM fullscreen API in normal usage.

Firefox 3.6 and Thunderbird 3.1 are not affected by
this vulnerability.

*

MFSA 2012-17 / CVE-2012-0459: Mozilla community
member Daniel Glazman of Disruptive Innovations reported a
crash when accessing a keyframe's cssText after dynamic
modification. This crash may be potentially exploitable.

Firefox 3.6 and Thunderbird 3.1 are not affected by
this vulnerability.

*

MFSA 2012-16 / CVE-2012-0458: Security researcher
Mariusz Mlynski reported that an attacker able to convince
a potential victim to set a new home page by dragging a
link to the "home" button can set that user's home page to
a javascript: URL. Once this is done the attacker's page
can cause repeated crashes of the browser, eventually
getting the script URL loaded in the privileged
about:sessionrestore context.

*

MFSA 2012-15 / CVE-2012-0451: Security Researcher
Mike Brooks of Sitewatch reported that if multiple Content
Security Policy (CSP) headers are present on a page, they
have an additive effect page policy. Using carriage return
line feed (CRLF) injection, a new CSP rule can be
introduced which allows for cross-site scripting (XSS) on
sites with a separate header injection vulnerability.

Firefox 3.6 and Thunderbird 3.1 are not affected by
this vulnerability.

*

MFSA 2012-14 / CVE-2012-0457 / CVE-2012-0456:
Security researcher Atte Kettunen from OUSPG found two
issues with Firefox's handling of SVG using the Address
Sanitizer tool. The first issue, critically rated, is a
use-after-free in SVG animation that could potentially lead
to arbitrary code execution. The second issue is rated
moderate and is an out of bounds read in SVG Filters. This
could potentially incorporate data from the user's memory,
making it accessible to the page content.

*

MFSA 2012-13 / CVE-2012-0455: Firefox prevents the
dropping of javascript: links onto a frame to prevent
malicious sites from tricking users into performing a
cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks on themselves. Security
researcher Soroush Dalili reported a way to bypass this
protection.

*

MFSA 2012-12 / CVE-2012-0454: Security researchers
Blair Strang and Scott Bell of Security Assessment found
that when a parent window spawns and closes a child window
that uses the file open dialog, a crash can be induced in
shlwapi.dll on 32-bit Windows 7 systems. This crash may be
potentially exploitable.

Firefox 3.6 and Thunderbird 3.1 are not affected by
this vulnerability.

Reworked the KDE4 integration. bnc#745017
