Description

The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 16.0 and thus, is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

  • Several memory safety bugs exist in the browser engine used in Mozilla-based products that could be exploited to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2012-3983)

"The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 16.0 and thus, is
affected by the following vulnerabilities :

  - Several memory safety bugs exist in the browser engine 
    used in Mozilla-based products that could be exploited 
    to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2012-3983)

  - '<select>' elements can be abused to cover arbitrary 
    portions of a newly loaded page and may also be utilized 
    for click-jacking attacks. (CVE-2012-3984,
    CVE-2012-5354)

  - A violation in the HTML specification for 
    'document.domain' behavior can be abused, potentially 
    leading to cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2012-3985)

  - Some methods of a feature used for testing 
    (DOMWindowUtils) are not properly protected and may be 
    called through script by web pages. (CVE-2012-3986)

  - A potentially exploitable denial of service may be 
    caused by a combination of invoking full-screen mode and 
    navigating backwards in history. (CVE-2012-3988)

  - A potentially exploitable crash can be caused when 
    making an invalid cast using the 'instanceof' operator 
    on certain types of JavaScript objects. (CVE-2012-3989)

  - When the 'GetProperty' function is invoked through JSAP, 
    security checking can by bypassed when getting cross-
    origin properties, potentially allowing arbitrary code 
    execution. (CVE-2012-3991)

  - The 'location' property can be accessed by binary 
    plugins through 'top.location' and 'top' can be shadowed 
    by 'Object.defineProperty', potentially allowing cross-
    site scripting attacks through plugins. (CVE-2012-3994)

  - The Chrome Object Wrapper (COW) has flaws that could 
    allow access to privileged functions, allowing for cross-
    site scripting attacks or arbitrary code execution. 
    (CVE-2012-3993, CVE-2012-4184)

  - The 'location.hash' property is vulnerable to an attack 
    that could allow an attacker to inject script or 
    intercept post data. (CVE-2012-3992)

  - The 'Address Sanitizer' tool is affected by multiple, 
    potentially exploitable use-after-free flaws. 
    (CVE-2012-3990, CVE-2012-3995, CVE-2012-4179, 
    CVE-2012-4180, CVE-2012-4181, CVE-2012-4182, 
    CVE-2012-4183)

  - The 'Address Sanitizer' tool is affected by multiple, 
    potentially exploitable heap memory corruption issues. 
    (CVE-2012-4185, CVE-2012-4186, CVE-2012-4187,
