Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200701-02 (Mozilla Firefox: Multiple vulnerabilities)

An anonymous researcher found evidence of memory corruption in the way     Mozilla Firefox handles certain types of SVG comment DOM nodes.
Additionally, Frederik Reiss discovered a heap-based buffer overflow in     the conversion of a CSS cursor. Other issues with memory corruption     were also fixed. Mozilla Firefox also contains less severe     vulnerabilities involving JavaScript and Java.

Impact :

An attacker could entice a user to view a specially crafted web page     that will trigger one of the vulnerabilities, possibly leading to the     execution of arbitrary code. It is also possible for an attacker to     perform cross-site scripting attacks, leading to the exposure of     sensitive information, like user credentials.

Workaround :

There are no known workarounds for all the issues at this time.
