Firefox ESR 24.x< 24.7 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Mac OS X)
High Nessus Plugin ID 76758
SynopsisThe remote Mac OS X host contains a web browser that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of Firefox ESR 24.x installed on the remote host is prior to 24.7. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- When a pair of NSSCertificate structures are added to a trust domain and then one of them is removed during use, a use-after-free error occurs which may cause the application to crash. This crash is potentially exploitable. (CVE-2014-1544)
- There are multiple memory safety hazards within the browser engine. These hazards may lead to memory corruption vulnerabilities, which may allow attackers to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-1547, CVE-2014-1548)
- Triggering the FireOnStateChange event has the potential to crash the application. This may lead to a use-after-free and an exploitable crash.
- There is a flaw in the Skia library when scaling images of high quality. If the image data is discarded while being processed, the library may crash. This crash is potentially exploitable. (CVE-2014-1557)
SolutionUpgrade to Firefox ESR 24.7 or later.
