Synopsis

The remote Windows host contains a web browser that is potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The installed version of Firefox ESR 17.x is earlier than 17.0.8, and is, therefore, potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Various errors exist that could allow memory corruption conditions. (CVE-2013-1701)

- Errors exist related to the update service and 'maintenanceservice.exe' that could allow buffer overflows when handling unexpectedly long path values.

- An unspecified error exists related to generating 'Certificate Request Message Format' (CRMF) requests that could allow cross-site scripting attacks.

- A DLL path loading error exists related to the update service that could allow execution of arbitrary code.
Note this issue affects Microsoft Windows versions 7 and greater. (CVE-2013-1712)

- An error exists related to Java applets and 'file:///' URIs that could allow read-only access to arbitrary files. (CVE-2013-1717)
