Description

The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 13.0 and thus, is potentially affected by the following security issues :

  • An error exists in the ASN.1 decoder when handling zero length items that can lead to application crashes. (CVE-2012-0441)

  • Multiple memory corruption errors exist. (CVE-2012-1937, CVE-2012-1938)

  • Two heap-based buffer overflows and one heap-based use- after-free error exist and are potentially exploitable. (CVE-2012-1940, CVE-2012-1941, CVE-2012-1947)

  • Two arbitrary DLL load issues exist related to the application update and update service functionality. (CVE-2012-1942, CVE-2012-1943)

  • The inline-script blocking feature of the 'Content Security Policy' (CSP) does not properly block inline event handlers. This error allows remote attackers to more easily carry out cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2012-1944)

  • A use-after-free error exists related to replacing or inserting a node into a web document. (CVE-2012-1946)

  • An error exists related to the certificate warning page that can allow 'clickjacking' thereby tricking a user into accepting unintended certificates. (CVE-2012-1964)
