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: 6.7

Synopsis

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

Description

The installed version of Firefox ESR 24.x is earlier than 24.3 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-2014-1477)

- An error exists related to System Only Wrappers (SOW) and the XML Binding Language (XBL) that could allow XUL content to be disclosed. (CVE-2014-1479)

- An error exists related to the JavaScript engine and 'window' object handling that has unspecified impact.
(CVE-2014-1481)

- An error exists related to 'RasterImage' and image decoding that could allow application crashes and possibly arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2014-1482)

- A use-after-free error exists related to image handling and 'imgRequestProxy' that could allow application crashes and possibly arbitrary code execution.
(CVE-2014-1486)

- An error exists related to 'web workers' that could allow cross-origin information disclosure.
(CVE-2014-1487)

- Network Security Services (NSS) contains a race condition in libssl that occurs during session ticket processing. A remote attacker can exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2014-1490)

- Network Security Services (NSS) does not properly restrict public values in Diffie-Hellman key exchanges, allowing a remote attacker to bypass cryptographic protection mechanisms. (CVE-2014-1491)

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox ESR 24.3 or later.
