Mozilla Firefox < 59.0.1 Multiple Code Execution Vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Plugin ID 108587

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Mozilla Firefox installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 59.0.1. 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 version 59.0.1 or later.
