SUSE SLED12 / SLES12 Security Update : MozillaFirefox (SUSE-SU-2015:0412-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 83691

Synopsis

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

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

These security issues were fixed :

- CVE-2015-0836: 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-2015-0827: 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-2015-0835: 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-2015-0831: 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-2015-0822: The Form Autocompletion feature in Mozilla Firefox before 31.5 allowed remote attackers to read arbitrary files via crafted JavaScript code (bnc#917597).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
