- Multiple stack-based buffer overflow vulnerabilities occur in both the Maintenance Service and the Mozilla Updater when unexpectedly long paths were encountered. (CVE-2013-1706, CVE-2013-1707)

- A denial-of-service vulnerability occurs when decoding of 'WAV' format audio files. (CVE-2013-1708)

- A cross-site scripting vulnerability affects the application. An attacker can exploit this issue through an interaction of frames and browser history. (CVE-2013-1709)

An attacker can exploit this issue to load a specific malicious DLL file from the local system using the Mozilla Updater, and can able to execute the DLL in a privileged context through the Mozilla Maintenance Service's privileges. (CVE-2013-1712)

- A same-origin security-bypass vulnerability exists because wrong principal is used for validating URI for some Javascript components. (CVE-2013-1713)
