Firefox < 42 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Mac OS X)

High Nessus Plugin ID 86762

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Firefox installed on the remote Mac OS X host is prior to 42. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Multiple memory corruption issues exist due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these issues, via a specially crafted web page, to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-4513, CVE-2015-4514)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists when handling type 3 messages as part of the NTLM authentication exchange. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted web page that sends an NTLM request, to disclose system hostname and windows domain information. (CVE-2015-4515)

- A security bypass vulnerability exists due to the whitelist used by Reader View to disable scripts for rendered pages being too permissive. A remote attacker can exploit this, via specially crafted web page, to bypass Content Security Policy (CSP) protections.
(CVE-2015-4518)

- An unspecified use-after-poison flaw exists in the sec_asn1d_parse_leaf() function in Mozilla Network Security Services (NSS) due to improper restriction of access to an unspecified data structure. A remote attacker can exploit this, via crafted OCTET STRING data, to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-7181)
- A heap buffer overflow condition exists in the ASN.1 decoder in Mozilla Network Security Services (NSS) due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this, via crafted OCTET STRING data, to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-7182)

- An integer overflow condition exists in the PL_ARENA_ALLOCATE macro in the Netscape Portable Runtime (NSPR) due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this to corrupt memory, resulting in a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-7183)

- A security bypass vulnerability exists due to a failure to enforce settings when disabling scripts in the Add-on SDK panel. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted web page, to bypass security restrictions and conduct a cross-site scripting attack. (CVE-2015-7187)

- A same-origin bypass vulnerability exists due to improper handling of trailing whitespaces in the IP address hostname. A remote attacker can exploit this, by appending whitespace characters to an IP address string, to bypass the same-origin policy and conduct a cross-site scripting attack. (CVE-2015-7188)

- A race condition exists in the JPEGEncoder() function due to improper validation of user-supplied input when handling canvas elements. A remote attacker can exploit this to cause a heap-based buffer overflow, resulting in a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-7189)

- An arbitrary code execution vulnerability exists in the accessibility-tools feature due to improper interaction with the implementation of the TABLE element. A remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-7192)

- A cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) request bypass vulnerability exists due to improper implementation of the CORS cross-origin request algorithm for the POST method in situations involving an unspecified Content-Type header manipulation. A remote attacker can exploit this to perform a simple request instead of a 'preflight' request. (CVE-2015-7193)

- A buffer underflow condition exists in libjar due to improper validation of user-supplied input when handling ZIP archives. A remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-7194)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to improper parsing of escaped characters in the hostname of location headers. A remote attacker can exploit this to gain access to arbitrary site-specific token information. (CVE-2015-7195)

- A memory corruption issue exists in the _releaseobject() function in dom/plugins/base/nsNPAPIPlugin.cpp due to improper deallocation of JavaScript wrappers. A remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-7196)

- A security bypass vulnerability exists due to improperly controlling the ability of a web worker to create a WebSocket object in the WebSocketImpl::Init() method.
A remote attacker can exploit this to bypass intended mixed-content restrictions. (CVE-2015-7197)

- A buffer overflow condition exists in TextureStorage11 in ANGLE due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-7198)

- A flaw exists in the AddWeightedPathSegLists() function due to missing return value checks during SVG rendering.
A remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted SVG document, to corrupt memory, resulting in a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.
(CVE-2015-7199)

- A flaw exists in the CryptoKey interface implementation due to missing status checks. A remote attacker can exploit this to make changes to cryptographic keys and execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-7200)

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox 42 or later.
