Mozilla Firefox < 41.0 Multiple Vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8948
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

The version of Mozilla Firefox is prior to 41.0 and is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists in ReadbackResultWriterD3D11::Run(). The issue is triggered as user-supplied input is not properly validated when handling return statuses. This may potentially allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and have an unspecified impact. (CVE-2015-7180)
- A flaw exists in InitTextures(). The issue is triggered as user-supplied input is not properly validated. This may potentially allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and have an unspecified impact. (CVE-2015-7117)
- An overflow condition exists in AnimationThread(). The issue is triggered as user-supplied input is not properly validated when handling sscanf arguments. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to cause a stack overflow, resulting in an unspecified impact. (CVE-2015-7176)
- An overflow condition exists in XULContentSinkImpl::AddText(). The issue is triggered as user-supplied input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to cause a buffer overflow, resulting in an unspecified impact. (CVE-2015-7175)
- An overflow condition exists in the nsAttrAndChildArray::GrowBy() function in 'dom/base/nsAttrAndChildArray.cpp'. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to cause a buffer overflow and potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-7174)
- An overflow condition exists in the nsUnicode*::GetMaxLength() functions that is triggered as user-supplied input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to cause a buffer overflow and potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-4522)
- A flaw exists in ConvertDialogOptions(). The issue is triggered as user-supplied input is not properly validated. This may potentially allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and have an unspecified impact. (CVE-2015-4521)
- A flaw exists in NetworkUtils.cpp. The issue is triggered as user-supplied input is not properly validated. This may potentially allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and have an unspecified impact. (CVE-2015-4517)
- An out-of-bounds read flaw exists in 'gfx/2d/DataSurfaceHelpers.cpp' that is triggered during the rendering of 2D canvases. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to potentially disclose sensitive memory contents. (CVE-2015-4512)
- A flaw exists that is triggered when identical cache keys may be generated for distinct preflight requests on a site. This may potentially allow a subsequent request to bypass intended cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) checks. (CVE-2015-4520)
- A flaw exists that is triggered when handling images that have been "dragged and dropped" after a redirect. The redirected URL of the image may be available to scripts, potentially allowing a context-dependent attacker to gain unauthorized access to it. (CVE-2015-4519)
- A use-after-free error exists in 'dom/html/HTMLMediaElement.cpp' that is triggered during the handling of HTML media elements. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-4509)
- nestegg contains an overflow condition. The issue is triggered as user-supplied input is not properly validated when decoding WebM videos. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to cause a buffer overflow, potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-4511)
- A flaw related to scratch register scope handling exists. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-4500)
- A flaw exists in the cloneLeftHandSide() function in 'frontend/ParseNode.cpp' that is triggered as user-supplied input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-4500)
- A flaw exists that is triggered as user-supplied input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-4500)
- A flaw exists in 'memory/mozjemalloc/jemalloc.c' that is triggered as user-supplied input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-4500)
- A flaw exists in the stagefright component that is triggered as user-supplied input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-4500)
- A flaw exists that is triggered when handling generator function groups, as they have an improper prototype. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-4500)
- A flaw exists in the nsXBLService::GetBinding() function in 'dom/xbl/nsXBLService.cpp' that is triggered when loading bindings. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-4500)
- A flaw exists in the IndexedDB component that is triggered as user-supplied input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-4500)
- A use-after-free error exists in 'nsIPresShell' that is triggered when handling a restyling operation during the resizing of a canvas element. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-4497)
- A flaw exists that is triggered when handling add-on installation using 'data:' URLs. With a specially crafted web page, a context-dependent attacker can bypass the install permission prompt for add-ons and install add-ons from malicious sources. (CVE-2015-4498)

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox 41.0 or later.
