   An update that contains security fixes can now be
   installed. It includes three new package versions.

Description:


   Mozilla Firefox is updated to the 10.0.12ESR version.

   This is a roll-up update for LTSS.

   It fixes a lot of security issues and bugs. 10.0.12ESR
   fixes specifically:

   *

   MFSA 2013-01: Mozilla developers identified and fixed
   several memory safety bugs in the browser engine used in
   Firefox and other Mozilla-based products. Some of these
   bugs showed evidence of memory corruption under certain
   circumstances, and we presume that with enough effort at
   least some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary
   code.

   Christoph Diehl, Christian Holler, Mats Palmgren, and
   Chiaki Ishikawa reported memory safety problems and crashes
   that affect Firefox ESR 10, Firefox ESR 17, and Firefox 17.
   (CVE-2013-0769)

   Bill Gianopoulos, Benoit Jacob, Christoph Diehl,
   Christian Holler, Gary Kwong, Robert O'Callahan, and
   Scoobidiver reported memory safety problems and crashes
   that affect Firefox ESR 17 and Firefox 17. (CVE-2013-0749)

   Jesse Ruderman, Christian Holler, Julian Seward, and
   Scoobidiver reported memory safety problems and crashes
   that affect Firefox 17. (CVE-2013-0770)

   MFSA 2013-02: Security researcher Abhishek Arya
   (Inferno) of the Google Chrome Security Team discovered a
   series critically rated of use-after-free, out of bounds
   read, and buffer overflow issues using the Address
   Sanitizer tool in shipped software. These issues are
   potentially exploitable, allowing for remote code
   execution. We would also like to thank Abhishek for
   reporting three additional user-after-free and out of
   bounds read flaws introduced during Firefox development
   that were fixed before general release.

   The following issue has been fixed in Firefox 18:

   o Global-buffer-overflow in
   CharDistributionAnalysis::HandleOneChar (CVE-2013-0760)

   The following issues has been fixed in Firefox 18,
   ESR 17.0.1, and ESR 10.0.12:

   o Heap-use-after-free in imgRequest::OnStopFrame
   (CVE-2013-0762) o Heap-use-after-free in ~nsHTMLEditRules
   (CVE-2013-0766) o Out of bounds read in
   nsSVGPathElement::GetPathLengthScale (CVE-2013-0763) o
   Heap-buffer-overflow in
   gfxTextRun::ShrinkToLigatureBoundaries (CVE-2013-0771)

   The following issue has been fixed in Firefox 18 and
   in the earlier ESR 10.0.11 release:

   o Heap-buffer-overflow in nsWindow::OnExposeEvent
   (CVE-2012-5829)
   *

   MFSA 2013-03: Security researcher miaubiz used the
   Address Sanitizer tool to discover a buffer overflow in
   Canvas when specific bad height and width values were given
   through HTML. This could lead to a potentially exploitable
   crash. (CVE-2013-0768)

   Miaubiz also found a potentially exploitable crash
   when 2D and 3D content was mixed which was introduced
   during Firefox development and fixed before general release.

   *

   MFSA 2013-04: Security researcher Masato Kinugawa
   found a flaw in which the displayed URL values within the
   addressbar can be spoofed by a page during loading. This
   allows for phishing attacks where a malicious page can
   spoof the identify of another site. (CVE-2013-0759)

   *

   MFSA 2013-05: Using the Address Sanitizer tool,
   security researcher Atte Kettunen from OUSPG discovered
   that the combination of large numbers of columns and column
   groups in a table could cause the array containing the
   columns during rendering to overwrite itself. This can lead
   to a user-after-free causing a potentially exploitable
   crash. (CVE-2013-0744)

   *

   MFSA 2013-06: Mozilla developer Wesley Johnston
   reported that when there are two or more iframes on the
   same HTML page, an iframe is able to see the touch events
   and their targets that occur within the other iframes on
   the page. If the iframes are from the same origin, they can
   also access the properties and methods of the targets of
   other iframes but same-origin policy (SOP) restricts access
   across domains. This allows for information leakage and
   possibilities for cross-site scripting (XSS) if another
   vulnerability can be used to get around SOP restrictions.
   (CVE-2013-0751)

   *

   MFSA 2013-07: Mozilla community member Jerry Baker
   reported a crashing issue found through Thunderbird when
   downloading messages over a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)
   connection. This was caused by a bug in the networking code
   assuming that secure connections were entirely handled on
   the socket transport thread when they can occur on a
   variety of threads. The resulting crash was potentially
   exploitable. (CVE-2013-0764)

   *

   MFSA 2013-08: Mozilla developer Olli Pettay
   discovered that the AutoWrapperChanger class fails to keep
   some javascript objects alive during garbage collection.
   This can lead to an exploitable crash allowing for
   arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-0745)

   *

   MFSA 2013-09: Mozilla developer Boris Zbarsky
   reported reported a problem where jsval-returning
   quickstubs fail to wrap their return values, causing a
   compartment mismatch. This mismatch can cause garbage
   collection to occur incorrectly and lead to a potentially
   exploitable crash. (CVE-2013-0746)

   *

   MFSA 2013-10: Mozilla security researcher Jesse
   Ruderman reported that events in the plugin handler can be
   manipulated by web content to bypass same-origin policy
   (SOP) restrictions. This can allow for clickjacking on
   malicious web pages. (CVE-2013-0747)

   *

   MFSA 2013-11: Mozilla security researcher Jesse
   Ruderman discovered that using the toString function of XBL
   objects can lead to inappropriate information leakage by
   revealing the address space layout instead of just the ID
   of the object. This layout information could potentially be
   used to bypass ASLR and other security protections.
   (CVE-2013-0748)

   *

   MFSA 2013-12: Security researcher pa_kt reported a
   flaw via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative that an integer
   overflow is possible when calculating the length for a
   Javascript string concatenation, which is then used for
   memory allocation. This results in a buffer overflow,
   leading to a potentially exploitable memory corruption.
   (CVE-2013-0750)

   *

   MFSA 2013-13: Security researcher Sviatoslav Chagaev
   reported that when using an XBL file containing multiple
   XML bindings with SVG content, a memory corruption can
   occur. In concern with remote XUL, this can lead to an
   exploitable crash. (CVE-2013-0752)

   *

   MFSA 2013-14: Security researcher Mariusz Mlynski
   reported that it is possible to change the prototype of an
   object and bypass Chrome Object Wrappers (COW) to gain
   access to chrome privileged functions. This could allow for
   arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-0757)

   *

   MFSA 2013-15: Security researcher Mariusz Mlynski
   reported that it is possible to open a chrome privileged
   web page through plugin objects through interaction with
   SVG elements. This could allow for arbitrary code
   execution. (CVE-2013-0758)

   *

   MFSA 2013-16: Security researcher regenrecht
   reported, via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative, a
   use-after-free in XMLSerializer by the exposing of
   serializeToStream to web content. This can lead to
   arbitrary code execution when exploited. (CVE-2013-0753)

   *

   MFSA 2013-17: Security researcher regenrecht
   reported, via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative, a
   use-after-free within the ListenerManager when garbage
   collection is forced after data in listener objects have
   been allocated in some circumstances. This results in a
   use-after-free which can lead to arbitrary code execution.
   (CVE-2013-0754)

   *

   MFSA 2013-18: Security researcher regenrecht
   reported, via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative, a
   use-after-free using the domDoc pointer within Vibrate
   library. This can lead to arbitrary code execution when
   exploited. (CVE-2013-0755)

   *

   MFSA 2013-19: Security researcher regenrecht
   reported, via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative, a garbage
   collection flaw in Javascript Proxy objects. This can lead
   to a use-after-free leading to arbitrary code execution.
   (CVE-2013-0756)

   *

   MFSA 2013-20: Google reported to Mozilla that
   TURKTRUST, a certificate authority in Mozilla's root
   program, had mis-issued two intermediate certificates to
   customers. The issue was not specific to Firefox but there
   was evidence that one of the certificates was used for
   man-in-the-middle (MITM) traffic management of domain names
   that the customer did not legitimately own or control. This
   issue was resolved by revoking the trust for these specific
   mis-issued certificates. (CVE-2013-0743)

Indications:

   Everyone using Firefox should update.
