New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 6.6
SynopsisThe remote Mac OS X host contains a web browser that is potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe installed version of Firefox is earlier than 24.0 and is, therefore, potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- Memory issues exist in the browser engine that could allow for denial of service or arbitrary code execution.
- The HTML5 Tree Builder does not properly maintain states, which could result in a denial of service or possible arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-1720)
- The ANGLE library is vulnerable to an integer overflow, which could result in a denial of service or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-1721)
- Multiple use-after-free problems exist, which could result in denial of service attacks or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-1722, CVE-2013-1724, CVE-2013-1735, CVE-2013-1736, CVE-2013-1738)
- The NativeKey widget does not properly terminate key messages, possibly leading to a denial of service attack.
- Local users can gain the same privileges as the Mozilla Updater because the application does not ensure exclusive access to the update file. An attacker can exploit this by inserting a malicious file into the update file. (CVE-2013-1726)
- A buffer overflow is possible because of an issue with multi-column layouts. (CVE-2013-1732)
- An object is not properly identified during use of user-defined getter methods on DOM proxies. This can result in access restrictions being bypassed.
- An issue in the NVIDIA OS X graphic drivers allows the user's desktop to be viewed by web content, potentially exposing sensitive information. (CVE-2013-1729)
SolutionUpgrade to Firefox 24.0 or later.
