Description David Eisenstein 2006-06-14 15:56:27 UTC
This was originally bug 194617, until Bugzilla barfed yesterday.  Entering
it again...

           Summary: CVE-2006-2779 Multiple Mozilla issues (CVE-2006-2781,
                    CVE-2006-2788)
           Product: Fedora Core
           Version: fc5
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: urgent
          Priority: normal
         Component: firefox
        AssignedTo: caillon@redhat.com
        ReportedBy: mattdm@mattdm.org
                CC: deisenst@gtw.net,wtogami@redhat.com

This issue also affects Fedora Core 5. A lot of the problems fixed in 1.5.0.4
don't seem that severe, but a few of these are serious enough to at least turn
some heads. And it's been public for a quite a while now.

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #193906 +++

Text stolen from MITRE:

CVE-2006-2781
Double-free vulnerability in Mozilla Thunderbird before 1.5.0.4 and
SeaMonkey before 1.0.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (hang) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a VCard that
contains invalid base64 characters.

CVE-2006-2779
Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird before 1.5.0.4 allow remote attackers
to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary
code via (1) nested <option> tags in a select tag, (2) a
DOMNodeRemoved mutation event, (3) "Content-implemented tree views,"
(4) BoxObjects, (5) the XBL implementation, (6) an iframe that
attempts to remove itself, which leads to memory corruption.

These issues also affect RHEL2.1 and RHEL3

Also this issue:

and possibly execute arbitrary code via certain Javascript code.

Removing dependency on bug #193906, since that's really a separate issue since
it requires backports.

I still don't see an update for this even in the testing tree.



Comment 2 David Eisenstein 2006-06-14 16:07:25 UTC
Kai, Dennis -- I understand you were working on rolling firefox &/or thunderbird
packages yesterday for 1.5.0.4.   How is that coming along?
