High

Synopsis

The remote host has a web browser installed that is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

Versions of Mozilla Firefox ESR earlier than 38.8 are unpatched for the following vulnerabilities :

- Multiple memory corruption issues exist that allow an attacker to corrupt memory, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-2805, CVE-2016-2807) - A flaw exists due to improper validation of user-supplied input when handling the 32-bit generation count of the underlying HashMap.
