Mozilla Firefox ESR < 52.6 Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 700334
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 52.6 are unpatched for the following vulnerabilities :

- An integer overflow that is triggered when allocating memory for edge builders. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A use-after-free error exists that is triggered when the source document for XSL transformation is manipulated by script content during the transformation. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A use-after-free error exists in 'layout/forms/nsNumberControlFrame.cpp' that is triggered when handling form input elements. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A use-after-free error exists in the widget listener. The issue is triggered when holding strong references to browser objects. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A use-after-free error exists in 'dom/html/HTMLMediaElement.cpp' that is triggered when handling specially crafted HTML media elements. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A use-after-free error exists in the 'EventStateManager::DispatchMouseOrPointerEvent()' function in 'dom/events/EventStateManager.cpp' that is triggered when handling mouse events. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A use-after-free error exists that is triggered when handling font faces. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A flaw exists in 'browser/base/content/browser.js' that is triggered when right-to-left text is used in the address bar with left-to-right alignment. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to spoof the URL bar.
- A use-after-free error exists that is triggered when WebRTC connections interact with DTMF timers. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A use-after-free error exists that is triggered when editing events in form elements on a page. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to dereference already freed 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.
- A flaw exists in the 'JSStructuredCloneReader::readV1ArrayBuffer()' function in 'js/src/vm/StructuredClone.cpp' that is triggered when deserializing invalid typed arrays. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- An unspecified flaw exists in the 'MediaEngineDefaultVideoSource::Allocate()' function in 'dom/media/webrtc/MediaEngineDefault.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 in 'toolkit/components/places/History.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 'nsCookieService::RemoveCookiesWithOriginAttributes()' function in 'netwerk/cookie/nsCookieService.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 in the Skia component 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 in 'startupcache/StartupCache.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 in 'dom/media/GraphDriver.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 in 'media/webrtc/signaling/src/media-conduit/WebrtcGmpVideoCodec.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 'WebrtcGmpVideoDecoder::ReleaseGmp()' function in 'media/webrtc/signaling/src/media-conduit/WebrtcGmpVideoCodec.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.
- An unspecified flaw exists in 'dom/base/DirectionalityUtils.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 'nsCookieService::PurgeCookies()' function in 'netwerk/cookie/nsCookieService.cpp' that is triggered when handling cookie expiry. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- An unspecified flaw exists in 'media/webrtc/signaling/src/peerconnection/PeerConnectionImpl.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 race condition exists in 'modules/libjar/nsJAR.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 race condition exists in 'netwerk/base/AutoClose.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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- An unspecified flaw exists in 'js/src/vm/StructuredClone.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.
