critical Nessus Plugin ID 73769
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

The installed version of Firefox is a version prior to 29.0 and is, therefore, potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An issue exists in the Network Security (NSS) library due to improper handling of IDNA domain prefixes for wildcard certificates. This issue could allow man-in- the-middle attacks. (CVE-2014-1492)

- Memory issues exist that could lead to arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2014-1518, CVE-2014-1519)

- An issue exists related to the 'Mozilla Maintenance Service' that could lead to privilege escalation due to the creation of a writeable temporary directory during the update process. (CVE-2014-1520)

- An out-of-bounds read issue exists in the Web Audio feature that could lead to information disclosure.
(CVE-2014-1522)

- An out-of-bounds read issue exists when decoding certain JPG images that could lead to a denial of service. (CVE-2014-1523)

- A memory corruption issue exists due to improper validation of XBL objects that could lead to arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2014-1524)

- A use-after-free memory issue exists in the Text Track Manager during HTML video processing that could lead to arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2014-1525)

- An issue exists related to the debugger bypassing XrayWrappers that could lead to privilege escalation.
(CVE-2014-1526)

- An out-of-bounds write issue exists in the Cairo graphics library that could lead to arbitrary code execution. Note that this issue only affects Firefox 28 and SeaMonkey 2.25. (CVE-2014-1528)

- A security bypass issue exists in the Web Notification API that could lead to arbitrary code execution.
(CVE-2014-1529)

- A cross-site scripting issue exists that could allow an attacker to load another website other than the URL for the website that is shown in the address bar.
(CVE-2014-1530)

- A use-after-free issue exists due to an 'imgLoader' object being freed when being resized. This issue could lead to arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2014-1531)

- A use-after-free issue exists during host resolution that could lead to arbitrary code execution.
(CVE-2014-1532)

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox 29.0 or later.
