Mozilla Firefox < 59.0.1 Multiple RCE

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 700329


The remote host has a web browser installed that is vulnerable to multiple Remote Code Execution (RCE) attack vectors.


The version of Mozilla Firefox installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 59.0.1. It is, therefore, affected by multiple code execution vulnerabilities. A out-of-bounds write flaw exists in multiple functions of the codebook.c script when decoding Vorbis audio data. A context-dependent attacker could corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2018-5146, CVE-2018-5147)


Upgrade to Firefox version 59.0.1 or later.
