Patch Central – Third Party Patch Roundup  – July 2019

As July comes to an end, summer is winding down in most of the northern hemisphere. Parents and children in many areas are starting to prepare for the beginning of a new school year.  Parts of Europe will soon be experiencing “August shutdown” as many workers go on vacation. Those of us in especially hot climates are looking forward to the cooler light at the end of the tunnel when autumn arrives. The swallows are staging to leave their northern breeding grounds and return to their winter homes.

And in the IT world as in the theater, regardless of the time or temperature, the show must go on.  The hackers are still hard at work, and July had its share of data breaches in the news – including Capital One, the Los Angeles Police Department, and Sephora.

Many such breaches are accomplished by exploiting vulnerabilities In the operating systems, applications, and protocols running on network devices.  This month, CISA (Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency) warned of multiple vulnerabilities in Virtual Private Network (VPN) applications and a number of critical remote code execution vulnerabilities were discovered in VxWorks, a real-time operating system that runs on more than 2 billion devices in industrial, health-care and enterprise environments.

One quick glance at any current security news site illustrates the importance of keeping all the systems and devices on our network – not just PCs – updated with the latest security fixes. Gone are the days when you could apply Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday releases each month and be done with it.  Today we have to keep up with the products and software services of a myriad of vendors.

Now let’s take a look at what this month has brought us from some of them.

Apple

If you were thinking (or hoping) that Apple’s release of ten updates last month would mean getting off easy this time, think again.  After staying quiet for the first three weeks, on July 22 the company issued eight patches, and then three more the next day, for a total of eleven this month (as of this writing on July 31).

Mozilla

On July 9th, Mozilla released Firefox v68, which contains fixes for twenty-one vulnerabilities: two critical, four high severity, ten moderate, and five low severity.  The vulnerabilities include:

  • CVE-2019-9811: Sandbox escape via installation of malicious language pack – As part of his winning Pwn2Own entry, Niklas Baumstark demonstrated a sandbox escape by installing a malicious language pack and then opening a browser feature that used the compromised translation.
  • CVE-2019-11711: Script injection within domain through inner window reuse – When an inner window is reused, it does not consider the use of document.domain for cross-origin protections. If pages on different subdomains ever cooperatively use document.domain, then either page can abuse this to inject script into arbitrary pages on the other subdomain, even those that did not use document.domain to relax their origin security.
  • CVE-2019-11712: Cross-origin POST requests can be made with NPAPI plugins by following 308 redirects – POST requests made by NPAPI plugins, such as Flash, that receive a status 308 redirect response can bypass CORS requirements. This can allow an attacker to perform Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) attacks.
  • CVE-2019-11713: Use-after-free with HTTP/2 cached stream – A use-after-free vulnerability can occur in HTTP/2 when a cached HTTP/2 stream is closed while still in use, resulting in a potentially exploitable crash.
  • CVE-2019-11714: NeckoChild can trigger crash when accessed off of main thread – Necko can access a child on the wrong thread during UDP connections, resulting in a potentially exploitable crash in some instances.
  • CVE-2019-11729: Empty or malformed p256-ECDH public keys may trigger a segmentation fault – Empty or malformed p256-ECDH public keys may trigger a segmentation fault due values being improperly sanitized before being copied into memory and used.
  • CVE-2019-11715: HTML parsing error can contribute to content XSS – Due to an error while parsing page content, it is possible for properly sanitized user input to be misinterpreted and lead to XSS hazards on web sites in certain circumstances.
  • CVE-2019-11716: globalThis not enumerable until accessed – Until explicitly accessed by script, window.globalThis is not enumerable and, as a result, is not visible to code such as Object.getOwnPropertyNames(window). Sites that deploy a sandboxing that depends on enumerating and freezing access to the window object may miss this, allowing their sandboxes to be bypassed.
  • CVE-2019-11717: Caret character improperly escaped in origins – A vulnerability exists where the caret (“^”) character is improperly escaped constructing some URIs due to it being used as a separator, allowing for possible spoofing of origin attributes.
  • CVE-2019-11718: Activity Stream writes unsanitized content to innerHTML – Activity Stream can display content from sent from the Snippet Service website. This content is written to innerHTML on the Activity Stream page without sanitization, allowing for a potential access to other information available to the Activity Stream, such as browsing history, if the Snipper Service were compromised.
  • CVE-2019-11719: Out-of-bounds read when importing curve25519 private key – When importing a curve25519 private key in PKCS#8format with leading 0x00 bytes, it is possible to trigger an out-of-bounds read in the Network Security Services (NSS) library. This could lead to information disclosure.
  • CVE-2019-11720: Character encoding XSS vulnerability – Some unicode characters are incorrectly treated as whitespace during the parsing of web content instead of triggering parsing errors. This allows malicious code to then be processed, evading cross-site scripting (XSS) filtering.
  • CVE-2019-11721: Domain spoofing through unicode latin ‘kra’ character – The unicode latin ‘kra’ character can be used to spoof a standard ‘k’ character in the addressbar. This allows for domain spoofing attacks as do not display as punycode text, allowing for user confusion.
  • CVE-2019-11730: Same-origin policy treats all files in a directory as having the same-origin – A vulnerability exists where if a user opens a locally saved HTML file, this file can use file: URIs to access other files in the same directory or sub-directories if the names are known or guessed.
  • CVE-2019-11723: Cookie leakage during add-on fetching across private browsing boundaries – A vulnerability exists during the installation of add-ons where the initial fetch ignored the origin attributes of the browsing context. This could leak cookies in private browsing mode or across different “containers” for people who use the Firefox Multi-Account Containers Web Extension.
  • CVE-2019-11724: Retired site input.mozilla.org has remote troubleshooting permissions – Application permissions give additional remote troubleshooting permission to the site input.mozilla.org, which has been retired and now redirects to another site. This additional permission is unnecessary and is a potential vector for malicious attacks.
  • CVE-2019-11725: Websocket resources bypass safebrowsing protections – When a user navigates to site marked as unsafe by the Safebrowsing API, warning messages are displayed and navigation is interrupted but resources from the same site loaded through websockets are not blocked, leading to the loading of unsafe resources and bypassing safebrowsing protections.
  • CVE-2019-11727: PKCS#1 v1.5 signatures can be used for TLS 1.3 – A vulnerability exists where it possible to force Network Security Services (NSS) to sign CertificateVerify with PKCS#1 v1.5 signatures when those are the only ones advertised by server in CertificateRequest in TLS 1.3. PKCS#1 v1.5 signatures should not be used for TLS 1.3 messages.
  • CVE-2019-11728: Port scanning through Alt-Svc header – The HTTP Alternative Services header, Alt-Svc, can be used by a malicious site to scan all TCP ports of any host that the accessible to a user when web content is loaded.
  • CVE-2019-11710: Memory safety bugs fixed in Firefox 68 – Mozilla developers and community members reported memory safety bugs present in Firefox 67. Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory corruption and we presume that with enough effort that some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code.
  • CVE-2019-11709: Memory safety bugs fixed in Firefox 68 and Firefox ESR 60.8 – Mozilla developers and community members reported memory safety bugs present in Firefox 67 and Firefox ESR 60.7. Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory corruption and we presume that with enough effort that some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code.
