Mozilla Firefox < 52 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Critical Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9986

Synopsis

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

Description

Versions of Mozilla Firefox prior to 52 are unpatched for the following vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists that is triggered when using a JIT-spray targeting 'asm.js' in conjunction with a heap spray that may allow a context-dependent attacker to bypass the Data Execution Protection (DEP) and Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) protection mechanisms.
- A flaw exists in the 'txMozillaXMLOutput::createResultDocument()' function in 'dom/xslt/xslt/txMozillaXMLOutput.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 'Element::DescribeAttribute()' function in 'dom/base/Element.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 'xpcom/ds/nsSupportsArray.cpp' that is triggered when handling 'nsISupportsArrays'. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- An unspecified flaw exists in 'dom/workers/ServiceWorkerPrivate.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 'layout/printing/nsPrintEngine.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 'netwerk/cache2/CacheIndex.cpp' that is triggered when handling cache index serialization. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- An unspecified flaw exists in 'media/webrtc/trunk/webrtc/modules/video_coding/rtt_filter.cc' 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 related to the camera system service 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 'js/src/jsgc.cpp' that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated when handling zone groups. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- An unspecified flaw exists in 'netwerk/streamconv/converters/nsMultiMixedConv.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 'netwerk/cache/nsDiskCacheDeviceSQL.cpp' that is triggered when handling cache eviction. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A use-after-free condition exists that is triggered when handling NPAPI plugin references. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A flaw exists in 'dom/base/nsDocument.cpp' that is triggered when handling frame request callbacks rescheduling. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A flaw exists in the 'js::array_sort()' function in 'js/src/jsarray.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 'cairo_cff_font_write_cid_fontdict()' function in 'cairo-cff-subset.c' that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and crash a process linked against the library or potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A use-after-free error exists that is triggered when using addRange to add the range to an incorrect root object. 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 'FontFaceSet' class in 'layout/style/FontFaceSet.cpp' that is triggered when handling events for FontFace objects. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A flaw exists in the JavaScript Garbage Collection mechanism that is triggered during incremental sweeping on memory cleanups. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A flaw exists in 'dom/bindings/ErrorResult.h' that is triggered when handling 'ErrorResult' references. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- A use-after-free error exists that is triggered when handling ranges in selections with one node inside and one node outside of a native anonymous tree. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to dereference already freed memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
- An out-of-bounds read flaw exists that is triggered when handling SVG filter color value operations. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to potentially disclose sensitive memory contents.
- A flaw exists in the 'HTMLTrackElement::LoadResource()' function in 'dom/html/HTMLTrackElement.cpp' that is triggered as CORS headers are not checked when loading video captions. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to disclose video captions.
- A path truncation flaw exist in the 'NS_main()' function in 'toolkit/mozapps/update/updater/updater.cpp' that is triggered when passing callback parameters through the Mozilla Maintenance Service. This may allow a local attacker to delete arbitrary files with elevated privileges.
- A flaw exists in the 'FilterNodeLightingSoftware::SetAttribute()' function template in 'gfx/2d/FilterNodeSoftware.cpp' that is triggered when handling subnormal surfaceScale values. With a specially crafted SVG filter, a context-dependent attacker can perform a side-channel attack, potentially resulting in disclosure of history information or text values across domains.
- An out-of-bounds access flaw exists that is triggered when handling bidirectional layout operations. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to have an unspecified impact. No further details have been provided by the vendor.
- A flaw exists in the 'Location' class in 'dom/base/Location.cpp' that is triggered when using a Blob URL. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to spoof the address bar.
- A flaw exists in the 'HTMLInputElement' class in 'dom/html/HTMLInputElement.cpp' that is triggered when handling the local default directory for a file picker dialog. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to disclose information e.g. about the operating system or the local account name.
