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

- Memory issues exist in the browser engine that could
result in a denial of service or arbitrary code
execution. (CVE-2013-1718, CVE-2013-1719)

- Multiple use-after-free problems exist that can result
in denial of service attacks or arbitrary code
execution. (CVE-2013-1735, CVE-2013-1736)

- A buffer overflow is possible because of an issue with
multi-column layouts. (CVE-2013-1732)

- A JavaScript compartment mismatch can result in a denial
of service or arbitrary code execution. Versions of
Firefox 20 or greater are not susceptible to the
arbitrary code execution mentioned above.
(CVE-2013-1730)

- Incorrect scope handling for JavaScript objects with
compartments can result in denial of service or possibly
arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-1725)

- An object is not properly identified during use of
user-defined getter methods on DOM proxies. This can
result in access restrictions being bypassed.
(CVE-2013-1737)
