Synopsis :

The remote Mac OS X host contains a web browser that is potentially
affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The installed version of Firefox ESR 17.x is earlier than 17.0.5 and
is, therefore, potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Various memory safety issues exist. (CVE-2013-0788)

- An out-of-bounds memory read error exists related to
'CERT_DecodeCertPackage' and certificate decoding.

- An error exists related to navigation, history and
improper 'baseURI' property values that could allow
cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2013-0793)

- A error exists related to 'cloneNode' that can allow
'System Only Wrapper' (SOW) to be bypassed, thus
violating the same origin policy and possibly leading
to privilege escalation and code execution.

- An out-of-bounds write error exists related to the
Cairo graphics library. (CVE-2013-0800)
