Published: 2009-03-10 10:59:23
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:

Successful exploitation will let attacker execute arbitrary code in the context of an affected web application or can cause URL address bar spoofing attacks or may cause denial of service.

Affected Versions:
Seamonkey version prior to 1.1.15 on Windows.

Technical Details:
Multiple flaws due to, - Layout engine error which causes memory corruption and assertion failures. - Layout engine error related to 'nsCSSStyleSheet::GetOwnerNode', events and garage collection which triggers memory corruption. - Layout engine error through a splice of an array that contains 'non-set' elements which causes 'jsarray.cpp' to pass an incorrect argument to the 'ResizeSlots' function which causes application crash. - Vectors related to js_DecompileValueGenerator, jsopcode.cpp, __defineSetter__ and watch which causes a segmentation fault. - Layout engine error in the vector related to 'gczeal'. - Double free vulnerability in Seamonkey via 'cloned XUL DOM elements' which were linked as a parent and child are not properly handled during garbage collection which causes arbitrary code execution. - 'nsIRDFService' in Seamonkey allows to bypass the same origin policy and read XML data through another domain by cross-domain redirect. - Error while decoding invisible characters when they are displayed in the location bar which causes incorrect address to be displayed in the URL bar and causes spoofing attacks.

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".
