This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mac OS X host contains a web browser that is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 16.0.1 and is
therefore potentially affected by the following security issues :

- An unspecified error related to the WebSockets
implementation and the function
'mozilla::net::FailDelayManager::Lookup' can allow
application crashes and potentially, arbitrary code
execution. (CVE-2012-4191)

- An unspecified error exists that can allow attackers to
bypass the 'Same Origin Policy' and access the
'Location' object. (CVE-2012-4192)

- An error exists related to 'security wrappers' and the
function 'defaultValue()' that can allow cross-site
scripting attacks. (CVE-2012-4193)
