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 17.0.7 and
is, therefore, potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Various, unspecified memory safety issues exist.

- Heap-use-after-free errors exist related to
'nsIDocument::GetRootElement' and 'mozilla::ResetDir'.
(CVE-2013-1684, CVE-2013-1685, CVE-2013-1686)

- An error exists related to 'XBL scope', 'System Only
Wrappers' (SOW) and chrome-privileged pages that could
allow cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2013-1687)

- An error related to 'onreadystatechange' and unmapped
memory could cause application crashes and allow
arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-1690)

- The application sends data in the body of XMLHttpRequest
(XHR) HEAD requests and could aid in cross-site request
forgery attacks. (CVE-2013-1692)

- An error related to the processing of SVG content could
allow a timing attack to disclose information across
domains. (CVE-2013-1693)

- An error exists related to 'PreserveWrapper' and the
'preserved-wrapper' flag that could cause potentially
exploitable application crashes. (CVE-2013-1694)

- An error exists related to the 'toString' and 'valueOf'
methods that could allow 'XrayWrappers' to be bypassed.
