CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C

Technical Details:
Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Iceape, an internet suite based on Seamonkey: CVE-2012-3982 Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors. CVE-2012-3986 Icedove does not properly restrict calls to DOMWindowUtils methods, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions via crafted JavaScript code. CVE-2012-3990 A Use-after-free vulnerability in the IME State Manager implementation allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors, related to the nsIContent::GetNameSpaceID function. CVE-2012-3991 Icedove does not properly restrict JSAPI access to the GetProperty function, which allows remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy and possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted web site. CVE-2012-4179 A use-after-free vulnerability in the nsHTMLCSSUtils::CreateCSSPropertyTxn function allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) via unspecified vectors. CVE-2012-4180 A heap-based buffer overflow in the nsHTMLEditor::IsPrevCharInNodeWhitespace function allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors. CVE-2012-4182 A use-after-free vulnerability in the nsTextEditRules::WillInsert function allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) via unspecified vectors. CVE-2012-4186 A heap-based buffer overflow in the nsWav-eReader::DecodeAudioData function allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors. CVE-2012-4188 A heap-based buffer overflow in the Convolve3x3 function allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors. Additionally, this update fixes a regression in the patch for CVE-2012-3959, released in DSA-2554-1. For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version 2.0.11-16. For the testing distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 10.0.10esr-1. For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 10.0.10esr-1.

Recommendations:
We recommend that you upgrade your iceape Linux Distribution Packages.

Summary:
The remote host is missing an update to iceape announced via advisory DSA 2572-1.

Detection Type:
Linux Distribution Package

Solution Type:

Frequently Asked Questions

No, you can scan concurrently as many assets as you want. Please note that you must be aware of the hardware requeriments of the platform to ensure a good performance.

No, you can add as many assest as you want. It doesn't matters if you have millions of assets, we won't charge you for that.

No. The software is completely free. We have no intention to charge you to use the software, in fact - it completely goes against our beliefs and business model.

A vulnerability is defined in the ISO 27002 standard as “A weakness of an asset or group of assets that can be exploited by one or more threats” (International Organization for Standardization, 2005)

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".
