Published: 2012-07-30 11:08:58
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:

The remote host is missing an update for the 'firefox' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Affected Versions:
firefox on CentOS 5

Please install the updated Linux Distribution Packages.

Technical Details:
Mozilla Firefox is an open source web browser. Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2012-0461, CVE-2012-0462, CVE-2012-0464) Two flaws were found in the way Firefox parsed certain Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) image files. A web page containing a malicious SVG image file could cause an information leak, or cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2012-0456, CVE-2012-0457) A flaw could allow a malicious site to bypass intended restrictions, possibly leading to a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack if a user were tricked into dropping a 'javascript:' link onto a frame. (CVE-2012-0455) It was found that the home page could be set to a 'javascript:' link. If a user were tricked into setting such a home page by dragging a link to the home button, it could cause Firefox to repeatedly crash, eventually leading to arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2012-0458) A flaw was found in the way Firefox parsed certain web content containing 'cssText'. A web page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2012-0459) It was found that by using the DOM fullscreen API, untrusted content could bypass the mozRequestFullscreen security protections. A web page containing malicious web content could exploit this API flaw to cause user interface spoofing. (CVE-2012-0460) A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled pages with multiple Content Security Policy (CSP) headers. This could lead to a cross-site scripting attack if used in conjunction with a website that has a header injection flaw. (CVE-2012-0451) For technical details regarding these flaws, refer to the Mozilla security advisories for Firefox 10.0.3 ESR. You can find a link to the Mozilla advisories in the References section of this erratum. This update also fixes the following bugs: * When using the Traditional Chinese locale (zh-TW), a segmentation fault sometimes occurred when closing Firefox. (BZ#729632) * Inputting any text in the Web Console (Tools -> Web Developer -> Web Console) caused Firefox to crash. (BZ#784048) * The java-1.6.0-ibm-plugin and java-1.6.0-sun-plugin Linux Distribution Packages require the &q ... Description truncated, please see the referenced URL(s) for more information.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
