High Nessus Plugin ID 81697

Synopsis

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Mozilla Firefox has been updated to version 31.5.0 ESR to fix five security issues.

These security issues have been fixed :

- Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox before 31.5 allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors. (bnc#917597).
(CVE-2015-0836)

- Heap-based buffer overflow in the mozilla::gfx::CopyRect function in Mozilla Firefox before 31.5 allowed remote attackers to obtain sensitive information from uninitialized process memory via a malformed SVG graphic. (bnc#917597). (CVE-2015-0827)

- Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox before 36.0 allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors. (bnc#917597).
(CVE-2015-0835)

- Use-after-free vulnerability in the mozilla::dom::IndexedDB::IDBObjectStore::CreateIndex function in Mozilla Firefox before 31.5 allowed remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) via crafted content that is improperly handled during IndexedDB index creation. (bnc#917597). (CVE-2015-0831)

- The Form Autocompletion feature in Mozilla Firefox before 31.5 allowed remote attackers to read arbitrary files via crafted JavaScript code. (bnc#917597).

These non-security issues have been fixed :

- Reverted desktop file name back to MozillaFirefox.desktop. (bnc#916196, bnc#917100)
