CVE-2006-2894 arbitrary file read vulnerability
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:34 EST
Arbitrary file read vulnerability in <= 1.0.2:
update to seamonkey 1.0.2 has been made available
See initial comment, this is reportedly a vulnerability in 1.0.2 and earlier.
I did not find a reference to this CVE in Mozilla advisories, assuming still
vulnerable in 1.0.4. Kai, could you investigate?
I believe this issue is still open.
Does anyone know if this has been fixed in the interim?
A fix for this is in Mozilla trunk (SeaMonkey 1.5) in bug 258875, but never made
it to the 1.8 branch
Adding reference to Mozilla bug.
Looks like nobody is working on backporting the fix to the branch.
Fedora Core 5 is no longer supported, could you please reproduce this with the
updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora Core 6, or
Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please
let us know in this bug report. If after a month's time we have not heard back
from you, we will have to close this bug as CANTFIX.
Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.
Thanks in advance.
We haven't got any reply to the last question about reproducability of the bug
with Fedora Core 6, Fedora 7, or Fedora devel. Mass closing this bug, so if you
have new information that would help us fix this bug, please reopen it with the
Matej: Please never close bugs with "Security" keyword unless you are condfident
they are fixed.
The sample exploit from https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=258875
works with seamonkey-1.1.3-8.fc8, though the upstream bug was recently closed.
Fixed with seamonkey-1.1.6-1.fc8
