Security Advisory

1) Use-after-free

Severity: High

CVSSv3: 8.3 [CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:H/E:U/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-9790

CWE-ID: CWE-416 - Use After Free

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to compromise vulnerable system.

The vulnerability exists due to a use-after-free error when a raw pointer to a DOM element on a page is obtained using JavaScript and the element is then removed while still in use. A remote attacker can trick the victim to visit a specially crafted web page, trigger use-after-free error and execute arbitrary code on the system with privileges of the current user.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability may allow an attacker to compromise vulnerable system.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

Vulnerable software versions

2) Type confusion

Severity: High

CVSSv3: 8.3 [CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:H/E:U/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-9791

CWE-ID: CWE-843 - Access of Resource Using Incompatible Type ('Type Confusion')

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to compromise vulnerable system.

The vulnerability exists due to a type confusion error within the type inference system. The system allows the compilation of functions that can cause type confusions between arbitrary objects when compiled through the IonMonkey just-in-time (JIT) compiler and when the constructor function is entered through on-stack replacement (OSR). A remote attacker can trick the victim to visit a specially crafted web page, trigger type confusion error and execute arbitrary code on the system with privileges of the current user.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability may allow an attacker to compromise vulnerable system.

9) Information disclosure

Severity: Low

CVSSv3: 2.7 [CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2018-18506

CWE-ID: CWE-200 - Information Exposure

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to gain access to sensitive information.

The vulnerability exists due to an error in proxy support implementation. When proxy auto-detection is enabled, if a web server serves a Proxy Auto-Configuration (PAC) file or if a PAC file is loaded locally, this PAC file can specify that requests to the localhost are to be sent through the proxy to another server. This behavior is disallowed by default when a proxy is manually configured, but when enabled could allow for attacks on services and tools that bind to the localhost for networked behavior if they are accessed through browsing.

A remote attacker can trick the victim to visit a specially crafted website and gain unauthorized access to services or resources, exposed on user's system.

Mitigation
