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 10.0.12 and thus, is potentially affected by the following security issues :

- Two intermediate certificates were improperly issued by TURKTRUST certificate authority. (CVE-2013-0743)

- A use-after-free error exists related to displaying HTML tables with many columns and column groups.
(CVE-2013-0744)

- An error exists related to 'jsval', 'quickstubs', and compartmental mismatches that could lead to potentially exploitable crashes. (CVE-2013-0746)

- An error related to the 'toString' method of XBL objects could lead to address information leakage.
(CVE-2013-0748)

- A buffer overflow exists related to JavaScript string concatenation. (CVE-2013-0750)

- A use-after-free error exists related to 'XMLSerializer' and 'serializeToStream'.
(CVE-2013-0753)

- A use-after-free error exists related to garbage collection and 'ListenManager'. (CVE-2013-0754)

- An error related to SVG elements and plugins could allow privilege escalation. (CVE-2013-0758)

- An error exists related to the address bar that could allow URL spoofing attacks. (CVE-2013-0759)

- Multiple, unspecified use-after-free, out-of-bounds read and buffer overflow errors exist. (CVE-2013-0762, CVE-2013-0766, CVE-2013-0767)

- An unspecified memory corruption issue exists.
