Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a web browser affected by multiple
vulnerabilities.

Description :

The installed version of Firefox 3.6 is earlier than 3.6.14. Such
versions are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple memory corruption errors exist and may lead to
arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2011-01)

- An error exists in the processing of recursive calls to
'eval()' when the call is wrapped in a try/catch
statement. This error causes dialog boxes to be
displayed with no content and non-functioning buttons.
Closing the dialog results in default acceptance of the
dialog. (MFSA 2011-02)

- A use-after-free error exists in a method used by
'JSON.stringify' and can allow arbitrary code
execution. (MFSA 2011-03)

- A buffer overflow vulnerability exists in the JavaScript
engine's internal memory mapping of non-local
variables and may lead to code execution. (MFSA 2011-04)

- A buffer overflow vulnerability exists in the JavaScript
engine's internal mapping of string values and may lead
to code execution. (MFSA 2011-05)

- A use-after-free error exists such that a JavaScript
'Worker' can be used to keep a reference to an object
which can be freed during garbage collection. This
vulnerability may lead to arbitrary code execution.
(MFSA 2011-06)

- A buffer overflow error exists related to the creation
very long strings and the insertion of those strings
into an HTML document. This vulnerability may lead to
arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2011-07)

- An input validation error exists in the class,
'ParanoidFragmentSink', which allows inline JavaScript
and 'javascript:' URLs in a chrome document. Note that
no unsafe usage occurs in Mozilla products, however
community generated extensions could.(MFSA 2011-08)

- A buffer overflow exists related to JPEG decoding and
may lead to arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2011-09)

- A cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability
exists when an HTTP 307 redirect is received in response
to a plugin's request. The request is forwarded to the
new location without the plugin's knowledge and with
custom headers intact, even across origins.
(MFSA 2011-10)
