Description

The installed version of Firefox ESR 17.x is earlier than 17.0.8 and is, therefore, potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

  • Various errors exist that could allow memory corruption conditions. (CVE-2013-1701)

  • Unspecified errors exist related to HTML frames and history handling, JavaScript URI handling and web workers using 'XMLHttpRequest' that could allow cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2013-1709, CVE-2013-1713, CVE-2013-1714)

  • An unspecified error exists related to generating 'Certificate Request Message Format' (CRMF) requests that could allow cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2013-1710)

  • An error exists related to Java applets and 'file:///' URIs that could allow read-only access to arbitrary files. (CVE-2013-1717)
