EUVDB-ID: #VU46966

Risk: High

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-15673

CWE-ID: CWE-119 - Memory corruption

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the target system.

The vulnerability exists due to a boundary error when processing HTML content. A remote attacker can create a specially crafted web page, trick the victim into opening it, trigger memory corruption and execute arbitrary code on the target system.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may result in complete compromise of vulnerable system.

Mitigation

Update the affected packages.

Vulnerable software versions

Opensuse: 15.2


CPE2.3 External links

http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-security-announce/2020-10/msg00074.html

Q & A

Can this vulnerability be exploited remotely?

Is there known malware, which exploits this vulnerability?

2) Cross-site scripting

EUVDB-ID: #VU46964

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-15676

CWE-ID: CWE-79 - Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation ('Cross-site Scripting')

Exploit availability: No

Description

The disclosed vulnerability allows a remote attacker to perform cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.

The vulnerability exists due to Firefox sometimes ran the onload handler for SVG elements that the DOM sanitizer decided to remove, resulting in JavaScript being executed after pasting attacker-controlled data into a contenteditable element.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may allow a remote attacker to steal potentially sensitive information, change appearance of the web page, perform phishing and drive-by-download attacks.

Mitigation

Update the affected packages.

Vulnerable software versions

Opensuse: 15.2

3) Spoofing attack

EUVDB-ID: #VU46963

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-15677

CWE-ID: CWE-451 - User Interface (UI) Misrepresentation of Critical Information (Clickjacking, spoofing)

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to perform spoofing attack.

The vulnerability exists due to way Firefox displays name of the data origin when downloading files. A remote attacker can spoof origin of the downloaded file and display the name of the intermediate website instead of the original source name.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may allow a remote attacker to perform a phishing attack but requires that the spoofed website has an open redirect vulnerability.

Mitigation

Update the affected packages.

4) Use-after-free

EUVDB-ID: #VU46965

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-15678

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 HTML content. When recursing through graphical layers while scrolling, an iterator may have become invalid, resulting in a potential use-after-free. This occurs because the function APZCTreeManager::ComputeClippedCompositionBounds did not follow iterator invalidation rules.

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

Mitigation

Update the affected packages.
