Don't want to hold up FF3b3 respin waiting for seamonkey reviews on the mozilla/rdf/chrome version of bug 413250. This bug is to track checking in that one
Comment 1 User image Daniel Veditz [:dveditz] 2008-02-01 19:58:04 PST
fixed (patch in 413250)
Comment 2 User image Daniel Veditz [:dveditz] 2008-02-01 19:59:12 PST
oops, this is for the trunk landing. Not done yet.
Comment 3 User image Al Billings [:abillings] 2008-02-05 13:50:26 PST
I'm not sure what to do with this, Dan. :-)
Comment 4 User image Daniel Veditz [:dveditz] 2008-02-05 17:57:59 PST
You could ask the SeaMonkey 1.1.8 folks to verify this one.
Comment 5 User image Daniel Veditz [:dveditz] 2008-02-06 11:33:42 PST
Any seamonkey-compatible flat extension will do. Greasemonkey ought to work.

You can't use quite the exploit in bug 413250 because rdf/chrome actually caught %2e%2e just fine (see bug 413250 comment 17). But a variation like


shouldn't show you part of your profile directory.

As far as I can tell, old versions of seamonkey were not vulnerable to the firefox exploits.  Seamonkey chrome URI handling used the rule of "if you try to go above [extension]/, just stay at [extension]/"

chrome://stylish/content/../content/common.js redirects to chrome://stylish/content/common.js

chrome://stylish/content/../../../content/common.js also redirects to chrome://stylish/content/common.js

In SM 1.1.7, loading chrome://stylish/content/%252e./ says "The file /content/%2e./ cannot be found."
In SM 1.1.8, trying to load that does nothing.

Beyond that, I don't see any difference between 1.1.7 and 1.1.8 I think everything is fixed on the seamonkey side.

Fixed or masked?
Comment 8 User image Daniel Veditz [:dveditz] 2008-02-07 18:27:30 PST
fixed -- the exploit case in 1.1.8 "does nothing". The 1.1.7 behavior of trying to load the file "/content/%2e./" is wrong, though maybe means the bug was constrained enough in SeaMonkey to not be exploitable. Maybe it was, but in any case the patch stops it.
Comment 9 User image Daniel Veditz [:dveditz] 2008-03-06 17:21:21 PST
fixed on trunk
Comment 10 User image Al Billings [:abillings] 2008-03-17 17:44:41 PDT
Do we need to do anything special to verify that this also landed on branch for and not just the relbranch?
Comment 11 User image Robert Kaiser 2008-03-22 05:42:01 PDT
I'd guess looking at bonsai should be enough to verify it actually landed. For verifying it actually works, I'd use branch SeaMonkey nightlies.
Comment 12 User image Al Billings [:abillings] 2008-03-24 17:31:54 PDT
I looked at this with Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; en-US; rv: Gecko/20080324 SeaMonkey/1.1.10pre, just to see if I could repro the fix. When I try to install the Seamonkey greasemonkey extension, I receive an error code of -214 with a note that the installation cannot write to Profile/chrome. I don't know if this is expected or not but the extension, or a similar one, is necessary to test the fix.

Can someone in the Seamonkey community verify this fix for I'm admitting failure here.

You must have read/write access to the SeaMonkey application directory. Because the SeaMonkey GM mod was packed on a windows machine the attributes of the installed files are wrong. You'll need to recursively chmod the installed files.

marking as VERIFIED
