Firefox < 34.0 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Mac OS X)
High Nessus Plugin ID 79662
SynopsisThe remote Mac OS X host contains a web browser that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of Firefox installed on the remote Mac OS X host is a version prior to 34.0. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- A security bypass vulnerability exists due to the 'XrayWrappers' filter not properly validating object properties. This allows a remote attacker to bypass security protection mechanisms to access protected objects. (CVE-2014-8631)
- A security bypass vulnerability exists due to Chrome Object Wrappers (COW) being passed as native interfaces.
This allows a remote attacker to access normally protected objects. (CVE-2014-8632)
- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in Mozilla Network Security Services (NSS) due to a flaw in 'quickder.c' that is triggered when handling PKCS#1 signatures during the decoding of ASN.1 DER.
- Multiple memory safety flaws exist within the browser engine. Exploiting these, an attacker can cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-1587, CVE-2014-1588)
- A security bypass vulnerability exists due improper declaration of chrome accessible CSS primary namespaces allowing for XML Binding Language (XBL) bindings to be triggered remotely. (CVE-2014-1589)
- An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to Content Security Policy (CSP) violation reports triggered by a redirect not properly removing path information which can reveal sensitive information.
Note that this only affects Firefox 33. (CVE-2014-1591)
- A use-after-free error exists due the creation of a second XML root element when parsing HTML written to a document created with 'document.open()' function which can result in arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2014-1592)
- A buffer overflow vulnerability exists in the 'mozilla::FileBlockCache::Read' function when parsing media which can result in arbitrary code execution.
- A casting error exists when casting from the 'BasicThebesLayer' layer to the 'BasicContainerLayer' layer which can result in arbitrary code execution.
- An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to the CoreGraphic framework creating log files containing sensitive information in the '/tmp' directory.
SolutionUpgrade to Firefox 34.0 or later.
