Mozilla Firefox ESR < 52.3 Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 700183
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote host has a web browser installed that is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

Versions of Mozilla Firefox ESR earlier than 52.3 are unpatched for the following vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists in the 'Accessible::RemoveChild()' function in 'accessible/generic/Accessible.cpp' that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A use-after-free error exists in the 'nsMIMEHeaderParamImpl::DecodeRFC5987Param()' function in 'netwerk/mime/nsMIMEHeaderParamImpl.cpp' that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.

- A flaw exists in the 'TypedArrayObjectTemplate::makeTemplateObject()' function in 'js/src/vm/TypedArrayObject.cpp' that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- An unspecified flaw exists that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code. No further details have been provided by the vendor.
- An unspecified flaw exists that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code. No further details have been provided by the vendor.
- A flaw exists in the 'DocAccessible::DoARIAOwnsRelocation()' function in 'accessible/generic/DocAccessible.cpp' that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A flaw exists in the 'nsFTPDirListingConv::DigestBufferLines()' function in 'netwerk/streamconv/converters/nsFTPDirListingConv.cpp' that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- An unspecified flaw exists that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code. No further details have been provided by the vendor.
- A flaw exists in the 'TraceSelf()' function in 'dom/bindings/TypedArray.h' that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A flaw exists in the 'WebSocket::Send()' function in 'dom/base/WebSocket.cpp' that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A flaw exists in the 'ExpressionDecompiler::decompilePC()' function in 'js/src/jsopcode.cpp' that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A flaw exists in the 'IonBuilder::addOsrValueTypeBarrier()' function in 'js/src/jit/IonBuilder.cpp' that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- An unspecified flaw exists that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code. No further details have been provided by the vendor.
- A flaw exists in the Developer Tools feature that is triggered as web page source code is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to inject and execute arbitrary XUL code.
- A use-after-free error exists in the 'WebSocketImpl::Disconnect()' function in 'dom/base/WebSocket.cpp' that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker can dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A use-after-free error exists that is triggered when re-computing the layout for marquee elements during window resizing. With a specially crafted web page, a context-dependent attacker can dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A use-after-free error exists that is triggered when deleting attached editor DOM nodes. With a specially crafted web page, a context-dependent attacker can dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A use-after-free error exists in the 'nsImageLoadingContent::Notify()' function in 'dom/base/nsImageLoadingContent.cpp' that is triggered when reading image observers during frame reconstruction. With a specially crafted web page, a context-dependent attacker can dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A use-after-free error exists that is triggered when resizing image elements. With a specially crafted web page, a context-dependent attacker can dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- An overflow condition exists that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated when manipulation Accessible Rich Internet Applications (ARIA) attributes. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to cause a buffer overflow and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- An overflow condition exists that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated when painting non-displayable SVG elements. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to cause a buffer overflow and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- An out-of-bounds read flaw exists that is triggered when handling cached style data and pseudo-elements. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to potentially disclose sensitive memory contents.
- A flaw exists in the 'nsDocShell::OnNewURI()' function in 'docshell/base/nsDocShell.cpp' that is triggered when handling pages with embedded iframes during page reloads. With a specially crafted web page, a context-dependent attacker can bypass the same-origin policy.
- A flaw exists in the AppCache feature related to handling of websites under a subdirectory adding fallback pages. With a specially crafted website, a context-dependent attacker can hijack a domain.
- A flaw exists in the 'openTabPrompt()' and 'openRemotePrompt()' functions in 'toolkit/components/prompts/src/nsPrompter.js' that is triggered when handling page navigations with data: protocols and modal alerts. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to conduct spoofing attacks.
- A flaw exists in 'xpcom/build/nsWindowsDllInterceptor.h' that is triggered as WindowsDllDetourPatcher may allocate memory with RWX permissions. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to bypass intended DEP protection and more easily exploit another vulnerability that allows code execution.
- A sandbox directive. This may result in other directives being ignored and incorrect enforcement of the content security policy (CSP).
- A flaw exists in 'xpcom/build/nsWindowsDllInterceptor.h' that is triggered as the WindowsDllDetourPatcher class destructor may be re-purposed by malicious code. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to bypass memory protections.
- An overflow condition exists in 'security/manager/ssl/nsNSSCertHelper.cpp' that is triggered when viewing certificates with overly long OIDs. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to cause a buffer overflow and potentially execute arbitrary code.

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox version 52.3 or later.
