Synopsis :

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

Description :

The version of Mozilla Firefox installed on the remote macOS or Mac
OS X host is prior to 53. It is, therefore, affected by the following
vulnerabilities :

condition or the disclosure of memory contents.
(CVE-2017-5447)

- An out-of-bounds write error exists in the
ClearKeyDecryptor::Decrypt() function within file
ClearKeyDecryptionManager.cpp when decrypting
Clearkey-encrypted media content. An unauthenticated,
remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of
service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.
This vulnerability can only be exploited if a secondary
mechanism can be used to escape the Gecko Media Plugin
(GMP) sandbox. (CVE-2017-5448)

- A flaw exists when handling bidirectional Unicode text
in conjunction with CSS animations that allows an
unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of
service condition or the execution or arbitrary code.
(CVE-2017-5449)

- A flaw exists in the handling of specially crafted
'onblur' events. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can
exploit this, via a specially crafted event, to spoof
the address bar, making the loaded site appear to be
different from the one actually loaded. (CVE-2017-5451)

- A flaw exists in the RSS reader preview page due to
improper sanitization of URL parameters for a feed's
TITLE element. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can
exploit this to spoof the TITLE element. However, no
scripted content can be run. (CVE-2017-5453)

- A flaw exists in the FileSystemSecurity::Forget()
function within file FileSystemSecurity.cpp when using

service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.
(CVE-2017-5460)

- An out-of-bounds write error exists in the Network
Security Services (NSS) library during Base64 decoding
operations due to insufficient memory being allocated to
a buffer. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can
exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or
the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-5461)

- A flaw exists in the Network Security Services (NSS)
library during DRBG number generation due to the
internal state V not correctly carrying bits over. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to
potentially cause predictable random number generation.
(CVE-2017-5462)

- A flaw exists when making changes to DOM content in the
accessibility tree due to improper validation of certain
input, which can lead to the DOM tree becoming out of
sync with the accessibility tree. An unauthenticated,
remote attacker can exploit this to corrupt memory,
resulting in a denial of service condition or the
execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-5464)

- An out-of-bounds read error exists in ConvolvePixel when
processing SVG content, which allows for otherwise
inaccessible memory being copied into SVG graphic
content. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit
this to disclose memory contents or cause a denial of
service condition. (CVE-2017-5465)

- A cross-site script (XSS) vulnerability exists due to
improper handling of data:text/html URL redirects when
a reload is triggered, which causes the reloaded
data:text/html page to have its origin set incorrectly.
An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this,
via a specially crafted request, to execute arbitrary
script code in a user's browser session. (CVE-2017-5466)
