[GLSA-200701-02] Mozilla Firefox: Multiple vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Mozilla Firefox: Multiple vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200701-02
(Mozilla Firefox: Multiple vulnerabilities)

An anonymous researcher found evidence of memory corruption in the way
Mozilla Firefox handles certain types of SVG comment DOM nodes.
Additionally, Frederik Reiss discovered a heap-based buffer overflow in
the conversion of a CSS cursor. Other issues with memory corruption
were also fixed. Mozilla Firefox also contains less severe
vulnerabilities involving JavaScript and Java.


A possible hacker could entice a user to view a specially crafted web page
that will trigger one of the vulnerabilities, possibly leading to the
execution of arbitrary code. It is also possible for a possible hacker to
perform cross-site scripting attacks, leading to the exposure of
sensitive information, like user credentials.


There are no known workarounds for all the issues at this time.


All Mozilla Firefox users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-client/mozilla-firefox-"
All Mozilla Firefox binary release users should upgrade to the latest
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-client/mozilla-firefox-bin-"

Threat Level: Medium
