Synopsis :

The remote Mac OS X host contains a web browser that is affected by
a memory corruption vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Firefox installed on the remote Mac OS X host is prior
to 37.0.2. It is, therefore, affected by a use-after-free error,
related to the AsyncPaintWaitEvent() method, due to a race condition
caused when plugin initialization fails. A remote attacker, using a
crafted web page, can exploit this to execute arbitrary code.
