Ubuntu Security Notice USN-645-3         September 25, 2008
firefox-3.0, xulrunner-1.9 regression
A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
  firefox                         3.0.3+build1+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.8.04.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart Firefox and any
applications that use xulrunner, such as Epiphany, to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

USN-645-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Firefox and xulrunner. The upstream
patches introduced a regression in the saved password handling. While
password data was not lost, if a user had saved any passwords with
non-ASCII characters, Firefox could not access the password database.
This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Original advisory details:

 Justin Schuh, Tom Cross and Peter Williams discovered errors in the
 Firefox URL parsing routines. If a user were tricked into opening a
 crafted hyperlink, an attacker could overflow a stack buffer and
 execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2008-0016)
 It was discovered that the same-origin check in Firefox could be
 bypassed. If a user were tricked into opening a malicious website,
 an attacker may be able to execute JavaScript in the context of a
 different website. (CVE-2008-3835)
 Several problems were discovered in the JavaScript engine. This
 could allow an attacker to execute scripts from page content with
 chrome privileges. (CVE-2008-3836)
 Paul Nickerson discovered Firefox did not properly process mouse
 click events. If a user were tricked into opening a malicious web
 page, an attacker could move the content window, which could
 potentially be used to force a user to perform unintended drag and
 drop operations. (CVE-2008-3837)
 Several problems were discovered in the browser engine. This could
 allow an attacker to execute code with chrome privileges.
 (CVE-2008-4058, CVE-2008-4059, CVE-2008-4060)
 Drew Yao, David Maciejak and other Mozilla developers found several
 problems in the browser engine of Firefox. If a user were tricked
 into opening a malicious web page, an attacker could cause a denial
 of service or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges
 of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2008-4061, CVE-2008-4062,
 CVE-2008-4063, CVE-2008-4064)
 Dave Reed discovered a flaw in the JavaScript parsing code when
 processing certain BOM characters. An attacker could exploit this
 to bypass script filters and perform cross-site scripting attacks.
 Gareth Heyes discovered a flaw in the HTML parser of Firefox. If a
 user were tricked into opening a malicious web page, an attacker
 could bypass script filtering and perform cross-site scripting
 attacks. (CVE-2008-4066)
 Boris Zbarsky and Georgi Guninski independently discovered flaws in
 the resource: protocol. An attacker could exploit this to perform
 directory traversal, read information about the system, and prompt
 the user to save information in a file. (CVE-2008-4067,
 Billy Hoffman discovered a problem in the XBM decoder. If a user were
 tricked into opening a malicious web page or XBM file, an attacker
 may be able to cause a denial of service via application crash.
