Mozilla Firefox < 32.0 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8361
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 earlier than 32.0 are unpatched for the following vulnerabilities :

- Use-after-free vulnerabilities -- when setting text direction, and when interacting with SVG content through the DOM -- which can be leveraged for arbitrary code execution (CVE-2014-1567, CVE-2014-1563)
- Out-of-bounds read in the Web Audio audio timeline that can trigger a crash and potentially disclose memory content (CVE-2014-1565)
- Incomplete memory initialization when rendering a malformed GIF image could expose that memory to scripts via web content using the '<canvas>' feature, resulting in information disclosure (CVE-2014-1564)
- Other undisclosed memory issues that have since been patched (CVE-2014-1553, CVE-2014-1554, CVE-2014-1562)

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox 32.0, or later.
