Description

Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2014-1493, CVE-2014-1510, CVE-2014-1511, CVE-2014-1512, CVE-2014-1513, CVE-2014-1514)

Several information disclosure flaws were found in the way Firefox processed malformed web content. An attacker could use these flaws to gain access to sensitive information such as cross-domain content or protected memory addresses or, potentially, cause Firefox to crash. (CVE-2014-1497, CVE-2014-1508, CVE-2014-1505)

A memory corruption flaw was found in the way Firefox rendered certain PDF files. An attacker able to trick a user into installing a malicious extension could use this flaw to crash Firefox or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2014-1509)

After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
