Firefox ESR 31.x < 31.5 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Mac OS X)

High Nessus Plugin ID 81517


The remote Mac OS X host contains a web browser that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Firefox ESR 31.x installed on the remote Mac OS X host is prior to 31.5. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists related to the autocomplete feature that allows an attacker to read arbitrary files. (CVE-2015-0822)

- An out-of-bounds read and write issue exists when processing invalid SVG graphic files. This allows an attacker to disclose sensitive information.

- A use-after-free issue exists when running specific web content with 'IndexedDB' to create an index, resulting in a denial of service condition or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2015-0831)

- Multiple unspecified memory safety issues exist within the browser engine. (CVE-2015-0835, CVE-2015-0836)


Upgrade to Firefox ESR 31.5 or later.
