- CVE-2015-7178: The ProgramBinary::linkAttributes function in libGLES in ANGLE, as used in Mozilla Firefox before 41.0 and Firefox ESR 38.x before 38.3 on Windows, mishandles shader access, which allowed remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) via crafted (1) OpenGL or (2) WebGL content (bsc#947003).

- CVE-2015-7179: The VertexBufferInterface::reserveVertexSpace function in libGLES in ANGLE, as used in Mozilla Firefox before 41.0 and Firefox ESR 38.x before 38.3 on Windows, incorrectly allocates memory for shader attribute arrays, which allowed remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (buffer overflow and application crash) via crafted (1) OpenGL or (2) WebGL content (bsc#947003).

- CVE-2015-4506: Buffer overflow in the vp9_init_context_buffers function in libvpx, as used in Mozilla Firefox before 41.0 and Firefox ESR 38.x before 38.3, allowed remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted VP9 file (bsc#947003).

- CVE-2015-4517: NetworkUtils.cpp in Mozilla Firefox before 41.0 and Firefox ESR 38.x before 38.3 might allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors (bsc#947003).

- CVE-2015-4505: updater.exe in Mozilla Firefox before 41.0 and Firefox ESR 38.x before 38.3 on Windows allowed local users to write to arbitrary files by conducting a junction attack and waiting for an update operation by the Mozilla Maintenance Service (bsc#947003).

- CVE-2015-4519: Mozilla Firefox before 41.0 and Firefox ESR 38.x before 38.3 allowed user-assisted remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions and discover a redirect's target URL via crafted JavaScript code that executes after a drag-and-drop action of an image into a TEXTBOX element (bsc#947003).

- CVE-2015-7180: The ReadbackResultWriterD3D11::Run function in Mozilla Firefox before 41.0 and Firefox ESR 38.x before 38.3 misinterprets the return value of a function call, which might allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors (bsc#947003).

- CVE-2015-7176: The AnimationThread function in Mozilla Firefox before 41.0 and Firefox ESR 38.x before 38.3 used an incorrect argument to the sscanf function, which might allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (stack-based buffer overflow and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors (bsc#947003).

- CVE-2015-7177: The InitTextures function in Mozilla Firefox before 41.0 and Firefox ESR 38.x before 38.3 might allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors (bsc#947003).

- CVE-2015-7174: The nsAttrAndChildArray::GrowBy function in Mozilla Firefox before 41.0 and Firefox ESR 38.x before 38.3 might allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors, related to an 'overflow (bsc#947003).

- CVE-2015-7175: The XULContentSinkImpl::AddText function in Mozilla Firefox before 41.0 and Firefox ESR 38.x before 38.3 might allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors, related to an 'overflow (bsc#947003).
