Certain versions of Ubuntu Linux from Canonical contain the following vulnerability:

The unity-firefox-extension package could be tricked into destroying the Unity webapps context, causing Firefox to crash. This could be achieved by spinning the event loop inside the webapps initialization callback. Fixed in 3.0.0+14.04.20140416-0ubuntu1.14.04.1 by shipping an empty package, thus disabling the extension entirely.

  • CVE-2013-1054 has been assigned by [email protected] to track the vulnerability - currently rated as MEDIUM severity.
  • Affected Vendor/Software: Canonical - unity-firefox-extension version < 3.0.0+14.04.20140416-0ubuntu1.14.04.1
