3. Description:

Mozilla Firefox is an open source web browser. XULRunner provides the XUL
Runtime environment for Mozilla Firefox.

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-2010-1208, CVE-2010-1209, CVE-2010-1211, CVE-2010-1212,
CVE-2010-1214, CVE-2010-1215, CVE-2010-2752, CVE-2010-2753)

A memory corruption flaw was found in the way Firefox decoded certain PNG
images. An attacker could create a specially-crafted PNG image that, when
opened, could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary
code with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2010-1205)

Several same-origin policy bypass flaws were found in Firefox. An attacker
could create a malicious web page that, when viewed by a victim, could
steal private data from a different website the victim has loaded with
Firefox. (CVE-2010-0654, CVE-2010-1207, CVE-2010-1213, CVE-2010-2754)

A flaw was found in the way Firefox presented the location bar to a user. A
malicious website could trick a user into thinking they are visiting the
site reported by the location bar, when the page is actually content
controlled by an attacker. (CVE-2010-1206)

A flaw was found in the way Firefox displayed the location bar when
visiting a secure web page. A malicious server could use this flaw to
present data that appears to originate from a secure server, even though it
does not. (CVE-2010-2751)

A flaw was found in the way Firefox displayed certain malformed characters.
A malicious web page could use this flaw to bypass certain string
sanitization methods, allowing it to display malicious information to
users. (CVE-2010-1210)

For technical details regarding these flaws, refer to the Mozilla security
advisories for Firefox 3.6.7. You can find a link to the Mozilla advisories
in the References section of this erratum.

All Firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
Firefox version 3.6.7, which corrects these issues. After installing the
update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
