Firefox < 26.0 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 71347


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


The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 26.0 and is, therefore, potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Memory issues exist in the browser engine that could result in a denial of service or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-5609, CVE-2013-5610)

- An issue exists where the notification for a Web App installation could persist from one website to another website. This could be used by a malicious website to trick a user into installing an application from one website while making it appear to come from another website. (CVE-2013-5611)

- Cross-site scripting filtering evasion may be possible due to character encodings being inherited from a previously visited website when character set encoding is missing from the current website. (CVE-2013-5612)

- Two use-after-free vulnerabilities exist in the functions for synthetic mouse movement handling.

- Sandbox restrictions may be bypassed because 'iframe sandbox' restrictions are not properly applied to 'object' elements in sandboxed iframes. (CVE-2013-5614)

- An issue exists in which 'GetElementIC' typed array stubs can be generated outside observed typesets. This could lead to unpredictable behavior with a potential security impact. (CVE-2013-5615)

- A use-after-free vulnerability exists when interacting with event listeners from the mListeners array. This could result in a denial of service or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-5616)

- A use-after-free vulnerability exists in the table editing user interface of the editor during garbage collection. This could result in a denial of service or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-5618)

- Memory issues exist in the binary search algorithms in the SpiderMonkey JavaScript engine that could result in a denial of service or arbitrary code execution.

- Issues exist with the JPEG format image processing with Start Of Scan (SOS) and Define Huffman Table (DHT) markers in the 'libjpeg' library. This could allow attackers to read arbitrary memory content as well as cross-domain image theft. (CVE-2013-6629, CVE-2013-6630)

- A memory issue exists when inserting an ordered list into a document through a script that could result in a denial of service or arbitrary code execution.

- Trust settings for built-in root certificates are ignored during extended validation (EV) certificate validation. This removes the ability of users to explicitly untrust root certificates from specific certificate authorities. (CVE-2013-6673)

- An intermediate certificate that is used by a man-in- the-middle (MITM) traffic management device exists in Mozilla's root certificate authorities. Reportedly, this certificate has been misused.


Upgrade to Firefox 26.0 or later.
