Firefox < 35 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 80523

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Firefox installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 35.0. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Multiple unspecified memory safety issues exist within the browser engine. (CVE-2014-8634, CVE-2014-8635)

- A flaw exists where DOM objects with some specific properties can bypass XrayWrappers. This can allow web content to confuse privileged code, potentially enabling privilege escalation. (CVE-2014-8636)

- A flaw exists in the rendering of bitmap images. When rending a malformed bitmap image, memory may not always be properly initialized, which can result in a leakage of data to web content. (CVE-2014-8637)

- A flaw exists in 'navigator.sendBeacon()' in which it does not follow the cross-origin resource sharing specification. This results in requests from 'sendBeacon()' lacking an 'origin' header, which allows malicious sites to perform XSRF attacks. (CVE-2014-8638)

- A flaw exists when receiving 407 Proxy Authentication responses with a 'set-cookie' header. This can allow a session-fixation attack. (CVE-2014-8639)

- A flaw exists in Web Audio that cam allow a small block of memory to be read. (CVE-2014-8640)

- A read-after-free flaw exists in WebRTC due to the way tracks are handled, which can result in a potentially exploitable crash or incorrect WebRTC behavior.
(CVE-2014-8641)

- A flaw exists where delegated Online Certificate Status Protocol responder certificates fail to recognize the id-pkix-ocsp-nocheck extension. This can result in a user connecting to a site with a revoked certificate.
(CVE-2014-8642)

- A flaw exists in the Gecko Media Plugin which can allow an attacker to break out of the sandbox. (CVE-2014-8643)

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox 35.0 or later.
