The remote Mac OS X host contains a web browser that is potentially
affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 26.0 and is,
therefore, potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- Memory issues exist in the browser engine that could
result in a denial of service or arbitrary code
execution. (CVE-2013-5609, CVE-2013-5610)
- An issue exists where the notification for a Web App
installation could persist from one website to another
website. This could be used by a malicious website to
trick a user into installing an application from one
website while making it appear to come from another
- Cross-site scripting filtering evasion may be possible
due to character encodings being inherited from a
previously visited website when character set encoding
is missing from the current website. (CVE-2013-5612)
- Two use-after-free vulnerabilities exist in the
functions for synthetic mouse movement handling.
- Sandbox restrictions may be bypassed because 'iframe
sandbox' restrictions are not properly applied to
'object' elements in sandboxed iframes. (CVE-2013-5614)
- An issue exists in which 'GetElementIC' typed array
stubs can be generated outside observed typesets. This
could lead to unpredictable behavior with a potential
security impact. (CVE-2013-5615)
- A use-after-free vulnerability exists when
interacting with event listeners from the mListeners
array. This could result in a denial of service or
arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-5616)
- A use-after-free vulnerability exists in the table
editing user interface of the editor during garbage
collection. This could result in a denial of service or
arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-5618)
- Memory issues exist in the binary search algorithms in
a denial of service or arbitrary code execution.
- Issues exist with the JPEG format image processing with
Start Of Scan (SOS) and Define Huffman Table (DHT)
markers in the 'libjpeg' library. This could allow
attackers to read arbitrary memory content as well as
cross-domain image theft. (CVE-2013-6629, CVE-2013-6630)
- A memory issue exists when inserting an ordered list
into a document through a script that could result in a
denial of service or arbitrary code execution.
- Trust settings for built-in root certificates are
ignored during extended validation (EV) certificate
validation. This removes the ability of users to
explicitly untrust root certificates from specific
certificate authorities. (CVE-2013-6673)
- An intermediate certificate that is used by a man-in-
the-middle (MITM) traffic management device exists in
Mozilla's root certificate authorities. Reportedly,
this certificate has been misused.
