______________________________________________________________________________

1) Problem Description and Brief Discussion

   Mozilla Firefox was updated to version 3.5.10, fixing various bugs
   and security issues.

   MFSA 2010-33 / CVE-2008-5913:
   Security researcher Amit Klein reported that it was possible to reverse
   engineer the value used to seed Math.random(). Since the pseudo-random
   number generator was only seeded once per browsing session, this seed
   value could be used as a unique token to identify and track users
   across different web sites.

   MFSA 2010-32 / CVE-2010-1197:
   Security researcher Ilja van Sprundel of IOActive reported that
   the Content-Disposition: attachment HTTP header was ignored when
   Content-Type: multipart was also present. This issue could potentially
   lead to XSS problems in sites that allow users to upload arbitrary
   files and specify a Content-Type but rely on Content-Disposition:
   attachment to prevent the content from being displayed inline.

   MFSA 2010-31 / CVE-2010-1125:
   Google security researcher Michal Zalewski reported that focus()
   could be used to change a user's cursor focus while they are
   typing, potentially directing their keyboard input to an unintended
   location. This behavior was also present across origins when content
   from one domain was embedded within another via an IFRAME. A malicious
   web page could use this behavior to steal keystrokes from a victim
   while they were typing sensitive information such as a password.

   MFSA 2010-30 / CVE-2010-1199:
   Security researcher Martin Barbella reported via TippingPoint's Zero
   Day Initiative that an XSLT node sorting routine contained an integer
   overflow vulnerability. In cases where one of the nodes to be sorted
   contained a very large text value, the integer used to allocate a
   memory buffer to store its value would overflow, resulting in too small
   a buffer being created. An attacker could use this vulnerability to
   write data past the end of the buffer, causing the browser to crash
   and potentially running arbitrary code on a victim's computer.

   MFSA 2010-29 / CVE-2010-1196:
   Security researcher Nils of MWR InfoSecurity reported that the routine
   for setting the text value for certain types of DOM nodes contained an
   integer overflow vulnerability. When a very long string was passed to
   this routine, the integer value used in creating a new memory buffer
   to hold the string would overflow, resulting in too small a buffer
   being allocated. An attacker could use this vulnerability to write
   data past the end of the buffer, causing a crash and potentially
   running arbitrary code on a victim's computer.

   MFSA 2010-28 / CVE-2010-1198:
   Microsoft Vulnerability Research reported that two plugin instances
   could interact in a way in which one plugin gets a reference to an
   object owned by a second plugin and continues to hold that reference
   after the second plugin is unloaded and its object is destroyed. In
   these cases, the first plugin would contain a pointer to freed memory
   which, if accessed, could be used by an attacker to execute arbitrary
   code on a victim's computer.

   MFSA 2010-27 / CVE-2010-0183:
   Security researcher wushi of team509 reported that the frame
   construction process for certain types of menus could result in a menu
   containing a pointer to a previously freed menu item. During the cycle
   collection process, this freed item could be accessed, resulting in the
   execution of a section of code potentially controlled by an attacker.

   MFSA 2010-26 / CVE-2010-1200 / CVE-2010-1201 / CVE-2010-1202 / CVE-2010-1203:
   Mozilla developers identified and fixed several stability bugs in the
   browser engine used in Firefox and other Mozilla-based products. Some
   of these crashes showed evidence of memory corruption under certain
   circumstances, and we presume that with enough effort at least some
   of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code.

   MFSA 2010-25 / CVE-2010-1121:
   A memory corruption flaw leading to code execution was reported by
   security researcher Nils of MWR InfoSecurity during the 2010 Pwn2Own
   contest sponsored by TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative. By moving
   DOM nodes between documents Nils found a case where the moved node
   incorrectly retained its old scope. If garbage collection could
   be triggered at the right time then Firefox would later use this
   freed object.  The contest winning exploit only affects Firefox 3.6
   and not earlier versions.  Updated (June 22, 2010): Firefox 3.5,
   SeaMonkey 2.0, and Thunderbird 3.0 based on earlier versions of the
   browser engine were patched just in case there is an alternate way
   of triggering the underlying flaw.

2) Solution or Work-Around

   There is no known workaround, please install the update packages.

3) Special Instructions and Notes

   Please close and restart all running instances of Mozilla Firefox after the update.

4) Package Location and Checksums

   The preferred method for installing security updates is to use the YaST
   Online Update (YOU) tool. YOU detects which updates are required and
   automatically performs the necessary steps to verify and install them.
   Alternatively, download the update packages for your distribution manually
   and verify their integrity by the methods listed in Section 6 of this
   announcement. Then install the packages using the command

     rpm -Fhv 

   to apply the update, replacing  with the filename of the
   downloaded RPM package.

6) Authenticity Verification and Additional Information

  - Announcement authenticity verification:

    SUSE security announcements are published via mailing lists and on Web
    sites. The authenticity and integrity of a SUSE security announcement is
    guaranteed by a cryptographic signature in each announcement. All SUSE
    security announcements are published with a valid signature.

    To verify the signature of the announcement, save it as text into a file
    and run the command

      gpg --verify 

    replacing  with the name of the file where you saved the
    announcement. The output for a valid signature looks like:

      gpg: Signature made  using RSA key ID 3D25D3D9
      gpg: Good signature from "SuSE Security Team "

    where  is replaced by the date the document was signed.

    If the security team's key is not contained in your key ring, you can
    import it from the first installation CD. To import the key, use the
    command

      gpg --import gpg-pubkey-3d25d3d9-36e12d04.asc

  - Package authenticity verification:

    SUSE update packages are available on many mirror FTP servers all over the
    world. While this service is considered valuable and important to the free
    and open source software community, the authenticity and the integrity of
    a package needs to be verified to ensure that it has not been tampered
    with.

    The internal rpm package signatures provide an easy way to verify the
    authenticity of an RPM package. Use the command

     rpm -v --checksig 

    to verify the signature of the package, replacing  with the
    filename of the RPM package downloaded. The package is unmodified if it
    contains a valid signature from build@suse.de with the key ID 9C800ACA.

    This key is automatically imported into the RPM database (on
    RPMv4-based distributions) and the gpg key ring of 'root' during
    installation. You can also find it on the first installation CD and at
    the end of this announcement.

  - SUSE runs two security mailing lists to which any interested party may
    subscribe:

    opensuse-security@opensuse.org
        -   General Linux and SUSE security discussion.
            All SUSE security announcements are sent to this list.
            To subscribe, send an e-mail to
                .

    opensuse-security-announce@opensuse.org
        -   SUSE's announce-only mailing list.
            Only SUSE's security announcements are sent to this list.
            To subscribe, send an e-mail to
                .
