[security-announce] SUSE-SU-2014:1112-1: important: Security update for MozillaFirefox
SUSE Security Update: Security update for MozillaFirefox
______________________________________________________________________________

Announcement ID: SUSE-SU-2014:1112-1
Rating: important
References: #894370
Affected Products:
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP2 LTSS
______________________________________________________________________________

An update that contains security fixes can now be
installed. It includes three new package versions.

Description:


Mozilla Firefox was updated to the 24.8.0ESR release, fixing security
issues and bugs.

Only some of the published security advisories affect the Mozilla Firefox
24ESR codestream:

* MFSA 2014-72 / CVE-2014-1567: Security researcher regenrecht
reported, via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative, a use-after-free
during text layout when interacting with the setting of text
direction. This results in a use-after-free which can lead to
arbitrary code execution.
* MFSA 2014-67: Mozilla developers and community 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.
* Jan de Mooij reported a memory safety problem that affects Firefox
ESR 24.7, ESR 31 and Firefox 31. (CVE-2014-1562)
