Description

The version of Firefox ESR 31.x installed on the remote host is prior to 31.1. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

  • Multiple memory safety flaws exist within the browser engine. Exploiting these, an attacker can cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-1553, CVE-2014-1562)

  • A use-after-free vulnerability exists due to improper cycle collection when processing animated SVG content. A remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-1563)

  • Memory is not properly initialized during GIF rendering. Using a specially crafted web script, a remote attacker can exploit this to acquire sensitive information from the process memory. (CVE-2014-1564)

  • The Web Audio API contains a flaw where audio timelines are properly created. Using specially crafted API calls, a remote attacker can exploit this to acquire sensitive information from the process memory or cause a denial of service. (CVE-2014-1565)

  • A use-after-free vulnerability exists due to improper handling of text layout in directionality resolution. A remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-1567)
