Firefox < 10.0.11 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Mac OS X)

High Nessus Plugin ID 62993

Synopsis

The remote Mac OS X host contains a web browser that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 10.0.11 and thus, is potentially affected by the following security issues :
- Several memory safety bugs exist in the browser engine used in Mozilla-based products that could be exploited to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2012-5843)

- An error exists in the method 'image::RasterImage::DrawFrameTo' related to GIF images that could allow a heap-based buffer overflow leading to arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2012-4202)

- Errors exist related to 'evalInSandbox', 'HZ-GB-2312' charset, frames and the 'location' object, the 'Style Inspector', and 'cross-origin wrappers' that could allow cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. (CVE-2012-4201, CVE-2012-4207, CVE-2012-4209, CVE-2012-4210, CVE-2012-5841)

- Various use-after-free, out-of-bounds read and buffer overflow errors exist that could potentially lead to arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2012-4214, CVE-2012-4215, CVE-2012-4216, CVE-2012-5829, CVE-2012-5830, CVE-2012-5833, CVE-2012-5835, CVE-2012-5839, CVE-2012-5840)

Please note the 10.x ESR branch will be unsupported as of 02/13/2013.
Only the 17.x ESR branch will receive security updates after that date.

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox 10.0.11 ESR or later.
