High Nessus Plugin ID 77499

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Firefox ESR 31.x installed on the remote host is prior to 31.1. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Multiple memory safety flaws exist within the browser engine. Exploiting these, an attacker can cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-1553, CVE-2014-1562)

- A use-after-free vulnerability exists due to improper cycle collection when processing animated SVG content.
A remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-1563)

- Memory is not properly initialized during GIF rendering.
Using a specially crafted web script, a remote attacker can exploit this to acquire sensitive information from the process memory. (CVE-2014-1564)

- The Web Audio API contains a flaw where audio timelines are properly created. Using specially crafted API calls, a remote attacker can exploit this to acquire sensitive information from the process memory or cause a denial of service. (CVE-2014-1565)

- A use-after-free vulnerability exists due to improper handling of text layout in directionality resolution.
A remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-1567)

Solution
