Description
===========

- CVE-2020-16042 (information disclosure)

An uninitialized use security issue has been found in the V8 component
of the chromium browser before version 87.0.4280.88 and Firefox before
84.0.

- CVE-2020-26971 (arbitrary code execution)

A security issue was found in Firefox before 84.0 and Thunderbird
before 78.6 where certain blit values provided by the user were not
properly constrained, leading to a heap buffer overflow on some video
drivers.

- CVE-2020-26972 (arbitrary code execution)

A security issue was found in Firefox before 84.0. The lifecycle of IPC
Actors allows managed actors to outlive their manager actors; and the
former must ensure that they are not attempting to use a dead actor
they have a reference to. Such a check was omitted in WebGL, resulting
in a use-after-free and a potentially exploitable crash.

- CVE-2020-26973 (content spoofing)

A security issue was found in Firefox before 84.0 and Thunderbird
before 78.6 where certain input to the CSS Sanitizer confused it,
resulting in incorrect components being removed. This could have been
used as a sanitizer bypass.

- CVE-2020-26974 (arbitrary code execution)

A security issue was found in Firefox before 84.0 and Thunderbird
before 78.6. When flex-basis was used on a table wrapper, a
StyleGenericFlexBasis object could have been incorrectly cast to the
wrong type. This resulted in a heap user-after-free, memory corruption,
and a potentially exploitable crash.

- CVE-2020-26976 (information disclosure)

A security issue was found in Firefox before 84.0. When an HTTPS page
was embedded in an HTTP page, and there was a service worker registered
for the former, the service worker could have intercepted the request
for the secure page despite the iframe not being a secure context due
to the (insecure) framing.

- CVE-2020-26978 (information disclosure)

A security issue was discovered in Firefox before 84.0 and Thunderbird
before 78.6. Using techniques that built on the slipstream research, a
malicious webpage could have exposed both an internal network's hosts
as well as services running on the user's local machine.

- CVE-2020-26979 (content spoofing)

A security issue was discovered in Firefox before 84.0. When a user
typed a URL in the address bar or the search bar and quickly hit the
enter key, a website could sometimes capture that event and then
redirect the user before navigation occurred to the desired, entered
address. To construct a convincing spoof the attacker would have had to
guess what the user was typing, perhaps by suggesting it.

- CVE-2020-35111 (information disclosure)

A security issue was discovered in Firefox before 84.0 and Thunderbird
before 78.6. When an extension with the proxy permission registered to
receive , the proxy.onRequest callback was not triggered for
view-source URLs. While web content cannot navigate to such URLs, a
user opening View Source could have inadvertently leaked their IP
address.

- CVE-2020-35113 (arbitrary code execution)

Mozilla developer Christian Holler reported memory safety bugs present
in Firefox 83, Firefox ESR 78.5 and Thunderbird 78.5. Some of these
bugs showed evidence of memory corruption and Mozilla presumes that
with enough effort some of these could have been exploited to run
arbitrary code.

- CVE-2020-35114 (arbitrary code execution)

Mozilla developers Christian Holler, Jan-Ivar Bruaroey, and Gabriele
Svelto reported memory safety bugs present in Firefox 83. Some of these
bugs showed evidence of memory corruption and Mozilla presumes that
with enough effort some of these could have been exploited to run
arbitrary code.

Impact
======

A remote attacker might be able to spoof content, access sensitive
information or execute arbitrary code.
