Description

The version of Firefox installed on the remote Windows host is a version prior to 34.0. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

  • A security bypass vulnerability exists due to the 'XrayWrappers' filter not properly validating object properties. This allows a remote attacker to bypass security protection mechanisms to access protected objects. (CVE-2014-8631)

  • A security bypass vulnerability exists due to Chrome Object Wrappers (COW) being passed as native interfaces. This allows a remote attacker to access normally protected objects. (CVE-2014-8632)

  • A remote code execution vulnerability exists in Mozilla Network Security Services (NSS) due to a flaw in 'quickder.c' that is triggered when handling PKCS#1 signatures during the decoding of ASN.1 DER. (CVE-2014-1569)

  • Multiple memory safety flaws exist within the browser engine. Exploiting these, an attacker can cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-1587, CVE-2014-1588)

  • A security bypass vulnerability exists due improper declaration of chrome accessible CSS primary namespaces allowing for XML Binding Language (XBL) bindings to be triggered remotely. (CVE-2014-1589)

  • A denial of service vulnerability exists due to improper parsing of a JavaScript object to the XMLHttpRequest API which can result in a crash. (CVE-2014-1590)

  • An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to Content Security Policy (CSP) violation reports triggered by a redirect not properly removing path information which can reveal sensitive information. Note that this only affects Firefox 33. (CVE-2014-1591)

  • A use-after-free error exists due the creation of a second XML root element when parsing HTML written to a document created with 'document.open()' function which can result in arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2014-1592)

  • A buffer overflow vulnerability exists in the 'mozilla::FileBlockCache::Read' function when parsing media which can result in arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2014-1593)

  • A casting error exists when casting from the 'BasicThebesLayer' layer to the 'BasicContainerLayer' layer which can result in arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2014-1594)
