Synopsis :

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

Description :

The version of Firefox installed on the remote Mac OS X host is a
version prior to 32.0. It is, therefore, affected by the following
vulnerabilities :

- Multiple memory safety flaws exist within the browser
engine. Exploiting these, an attacker can cause a denial
of service or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-1553,
CVE-2014-1554, CVE-2014-1562)

- A use-after-free vulnerability exists due to improper
cycle collection when processing animated SVG content.
A remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of
service or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-1563)

- Memory is not properly initialized during GIF rendering.
Using a specially crafted web script, a remote attacker
can exploit this to acquire sensitive information from
the process memory. (CVE-2014-1564)

- The Web Audio API contains a flaw where audio timelines
are properly created. Using specially crafted API calls,
a remote attacker can exploit this to acquire sensitive
information from the process memory or cause a denial of
service. (CVE-2014-1565)

- A use-after-free vulnerability exists due to improper
handling of text layout in directionality resolution.
A remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2014-1567)
