Description

The version of Firefox installed on the remote Mac OS X host is prior to 37.0.2. It is, therefore, affected by a use-after-free error, related to the AsyncPaintWaitEvent() method, due to a race condition caused when plugin initialization fails. A remote attacker, using a crafted web page, can exploit this to execute arbitrary code.
