Medium Log Correlation Engine Plugin ID 801464

Synopsis

The remote host has a web browser installed that is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

Versions of Mozilla Firefox earlier than version 23.0 are prone to the following vulnerabilities:

- Multiple memory-corruption vulnerabilities exist in the browser engine that could lead to arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-1701, CVE-2013-1702)

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

- A remote code execution and cross-site scripting vulnerability occurs when generating a Certificate Request Message Format (CRMF) request. (CVE-2013-1710)

- A privilege-escalation vulnerability occurs due to an error when using Mozilla Updater. 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)

- A same-origin security-bypass vulnerability occurs due to an error with web workers and XMLHttpRequest. (CVE-2013-1714)

- An information-disclosure vulnerability occurs due to an unspecified error with Java applets. This issue leads to disclose contents of local file system when loaded using the a 'file:/// URI'. (CVE-2013-1717)
