Description

The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 3.5.14. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

  • Multiple memory safety bugs could lead to memory corruption, potentially resulting in arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2010-64)

  • By passing an excessively long string to

"The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 3.5.14.  Such
versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

  - Multiple memory safety bugs could lead to memory
    corruption, potentially resulting in arbitrary
    code execution. (MFSA 2010-64)

  - By passing an excessively long string to
    'document.write', it may be possible to trigger a buffer
    overflow condition resulting in arbitrary code execution
    on the remote system. (MFSA 2010-65)

  - A use-after-free error in nsBarProp could allow
    arbitrary code execution on the remote system.
    (MFSA 2010-66)

  - A dangling pointer vulnerability in LookupGetterOrSetter
    could allow arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2010-67)

  - The Gopher parser is affected by a cross-site scripting
    vulnerability. (MFSA 2010-68)

  - It is possible to steal information from a site in a
    different domain using modal calls. (MFSA 2010-69)

  - It is possible to establish a valid SSL connection
    to a remote host, provided the SSL certificate was
    created with a common name containing a wild card
    followed by partial IP address of the remote host.
    (MFSA 2010-70)

  - A function used to load external libraries on Windows
    platform could allow loading of unsafe DLLs thus
    allowing binary planting attacks. (MFSA 2010-71)

  - The SSL implementation allows servers to use
    Diffie-Hellman Ephemeral mode (DHE) with a very
    short key length. Such key lengths could be easily
    breakable with modern hardware. (MFSA 2010-72)");
