Firefox ESR < 38.7 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Mac OS X)

This script is Copyright (C) 2016-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

The version of Firefox ESR installed on the remote Mac OS X host is
prior to 38.7. It is, therefore, affected by multiple
vulnerabilities, the majority of which are remote code execution
vulnerabilities. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these
issues by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website,
resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the
current user.
