Firefox ESR < 38.6 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Mac OS X)

High Nessus Plugin ID 88458


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


The version of Firefox ESR installed on the remote Mac OS X host is prior to 38.6. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Multiple unspecified memory corruption issues exist that allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code.

- A buffer overflow condition exists in WebGL that is triggered when handling cache out-of-memory error conditions. A remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1935)


Upgrade to Firefox ESR version 38.6 or later.
