CVE-ID: CVE-2020-12417

CWE-ID: CWE-20 - Improper Input Validation

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to perform cache poisoning attack.

The vulnerability exists due to an error when processing the %2F character in a manifest URL, which results in Firefox's AppCache behavior to become confused and allowe a manifest to be served from a subdirectory. This could cause the appcache to be used to service requests for the top level directory.


Mitigation

Update the affected packages.

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-12419

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 processing callbacks that occurred during window flushing in the parent process in nsGlobalWindowInner. A remote attacker can create a specially crafted web page, trick the victim into visiting it, trigger a use-after-free error and execute arbitrary code on the target system.

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

Mitigation

Update the affected packages.

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-12420

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 trying to connect to a STUN server. A remote attacker can create a specially crafted web page, trick the victim into visiting it, trigger a race condition that causes the use-after-free of a pointer and execute arbitrary code on the system.

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

Mitigation

5) Improper Certificate Validation

EUVDB-ID: #VU29457

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-12421

CWE-ID: CWE-295 - Improper Certificate Validation

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to disable installed Add-Ons.

The vulnerability exists due to Add-On updates do not respect the same certificate trust rules as software updates. When performing add-on updates, certificate chains terminating in non-built-in-roots were rejected (even if they were legitimately added by an administrator.) This could have caused add-ons to become out-of-date silently without notification to the user.

Mitigation

Update the affected packages.
