Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2013-02-16 09:35:17 UTC
Security researcher Abhishek Arya (Inferno) of the Google Chrome Security Team used the Address Sanitizer tool to discover a series of use-after-free, out of bounds read, and buffer overflow problems rated as low to critical security issues in shipped software. Some of these issues are potentially exploitable, allowing for remote code execution. We would also like to thank Abhishek for reporting four additional use-after-free and out of bounds write flaws introduced during Firefox development that were fixed before general release.

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.

Red Hat would like to thank the Mozilla project for reporting this issue. Upstream acknowledges Abhishek Arya as the original reporter.


This issue does not affect the version of firefox and thunderbird as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6
