Mozilla Firefox ESR < 52.7.2 Multiple Code Execution Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 108586


A web browser installed on the remote Windows host is affected by multiple code execution vulnerabilities.


The version of Mozilla Firefox ESR installed on the remote Windows 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.


Upgrade to Mozilla Firefox ESR version 52.7.2 or later.
