Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Mozilla Firefox, Thunderbird, and SeaMonkey, some of which may allow a remote user to execute arbitrary code.

2.  Impact Information

Background

Mozilla Firefox is an open-source web browser and Mozilla Thunderbird an open-source email client, both from the Mozilla Project. The SeaMonkey project is a community effort to deliver production-quality releases of code derived from the application formerly known as the ‘Mozilla Application Suite’.

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Mozilla Firefox, Thunderbird, and SeaMonkey. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact

A remote attacker could entice a user to view a specially crafted web page or email, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code or a Denial of Service condition. Further, a remote attacker could conduct XSS attacks, spoof URLs, bypass address space layout randomization, conduct clickjacking attacks, obtain potentially sensitive information, bypass access restrictions, modify the local filesystem, or conduct other unspecified attacks.
