Mozilla Firefox ESR 52.x < 52.1.1 ANGLE Graphics Library RCE

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a web browser that is affected by
a remote code execution vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Mozilla Firefox ESR installed on the remote Windows
host is 52.x prior to 52.1.1. It is, therefore, affected by a
use-after-free error in libANGLE/renderer/d3d/d3d11/Buffer11.cpp
within the ANGLE graphics library (libGLES) when handling Buffer11 API
calls. An unauthenticated remote attacker can exploit this, by
convincing a user to visit a specially crafted web page, to
dereference already freed memory, resulting in a crash or potentially
the execution of arbitrary code.
