The remote NewStart CGSL host, running version MAIN 6.02, has firefox packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

  • Further techniques that built on the slipstream research combined with a malicious webpage could have exposed both an internal network’s hosts as well as services running on the user’s local machine. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 85. (CVE-2021-23961)

  • A WebGL framebuffer was not initialized early enough, resulting in memory corruption and an out of bound write. This vulnerability affects Firefox ESR < 78.10, Thunderbird < 78.10, and Firefox < 88.
    (CVE-2021-23994)

  • When Responsive Design Mode was enabled, it used references to objects that were previously freed. We presume that with enough effort this could have been exploited to run arbitrary code. This vulnerability affects Firefox ESR < 78.10, Thunderbird < 78.10, and Firefox < 88. (CVE-2021-23995)

  • Through complicated navigations with new windows, an HTTP page could have inherited a secure lock icon from an HTTPS page. This vulnerability affects Firefox ESR < 78.10, Thunderbird < 78.10, and Firefox < 88.
    (CVE-2021-23998)

  • If a Blob URL was loaded through some unusual user interaction, it could have been loaded by the System Principal and granted additional privileges that should not be granted to web content. This vulnerability affects Firefox ESR < 78.10, Thunderbird < 78.10, and Firefox < 88. (CVE-2021-23999)

  • When a user clicked on an FTP URL containing encoded newline characters (%0A and %0D), the newlines would have been interpreted as such and allowed arbitrary commands to be sent to the FTP server. This vulnerability affects Firefox ESR < 78.10, Thunderbird < 78.10, and Firefox < 88. (CVE-2021-24002)

  • The WebAssembly JIT could miscalculate the size of a return type, which could lead to a null read and result in a crash. Note: This issue only affected x86-32 platforms. Other platforms are unaffected..
    This vulnerability affects Firefox ESR < 78.10, Thunderbird < 78.10, and Firefox < 88. (CVE-2021-29945)

  • Ports that were written as an integer overflow above the bounds of a 16-bit integer could have bypassed port blocking restrictions when used in the Alt-Svc header. This vulnerability affects Firefox ESR < 78.10, Thunderbird < 78.10, and Firefox < 88. (CVE-2021-29946)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application’s self-reported version number.
