Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

Mozilla Firefox has been updated to version 31.5.0 ESR to fix five
security issues.

These security issues have been fixed :

- Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser
engine in Mozilla Firefox before 31.5 allowed remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (memory
corruption and application crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code via unknown vectors. (bnc#917597).
(CVE-2015-0836)

- Heap-based buffer overflow in the mozilla::gfx::CopyRect
function in Mozilla Firefox before 31.5 allowed remote
attackers to obtain sensitive information from
uninitialized process memory via a malformed SVG
graphic. (bnc#917597). (CVE-2015-0827)

- Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser
engine in Mozilla Firefox before 36.0 allowed remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (memory
corruption and application crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code via unknown vectors. (bnc#917597).
(CVE-2015-0835)

- Use-after-free vulnerability in the
mozilla::dom::IndexedDB::IDBObjectStore::CreateIndex
function in Mozilla Firefox before 31.5 allowed remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of
service (heap memory corruption) via crafted content
that is improperly handled during IndexedDB index
creation. (bnc#917597). (CVE-2015-0831)

- The Form Autocompletion feature in Mozilla Firefox
before 31.5 allowed remote attackers to read arbitrary
files via crafted JavaScript code. (bnc#917597).
(CVE-2015-0822)

These non-security issues have been fixed :

- Reverted desktop file name back to
MozillaFirefox.desktop. (bnc#916196, bnc#917100)
