Mozilla Firefox ESR < 52.7.2 Multiple Code Execution Vulnerabilities (macOS)

High Nessus Plugin ID 108584

Synopsis

A web browser installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is affected by multiple code execution vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Mozilla Firefox ESR installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is prior to 52.7.2. It is, therefore, affected by multiple code execution vulnerabilities. A out-of-bounds write flaw exists in multiple functions of the codebook.c script when decoding Vorbis audio data. A context-dependent attacker could corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.

Solution

Upgrade to Mozilla Firefox ESR version 52.7.2 or later.
