Date:  Dec 3 2014
Impact:   Denial of service via network, Disclosure of system information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): prior to 34.0
Description:   Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in Mozilla Firefox. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system. A remote user can cause denial of service conditions. A remote or local user can obtain potentially sensitive information.

A remote user can create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2014-1587, CVE-2014-1588].

A remote user can use certain CSS stylesheets to access XML binding language (XBL) bindings to bypass security restrictions [CVE-2014-1589].

A remote user can create HTML that supplies a specially crafted JavaScript object to XMLHttpRequest to target browser to crash [CVE-2014-1590].

A remote user can trigger a Content Security Policy (CSP) violation report via a redirect to obtain potentially sensitive path information [CVE-2014-1591]. Versions prior to Firefox 33 are not affected.

A remote user can trigger a use-after-free in xul.dll!nsHtml5TreeOperation to potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2014-1592].

A remote user can create specially crafted media content to trigger a stack overflow in mozilla::FileBlockCache::Read and potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2014-1593].

A remote user can cause a bad casting from BasicThebesLayer to BasicContainerLayer, resulting in undefined behavior, which may allow code execution with some compilers [CVE-2014-1594].

On OS X version 10.10, the CoreGraphics framework records potentially sensitive information to the '/tmp' directory. A local user can view this information, which may include usernames, passwords, and other input data [CVE-2014-1595].

A remote user can create specially crafted web content that can exploit flaws in the security wrappers to access DOM objects that should only be accessed by chrome [CVE-2014-8631, CVE-2014-8632].

Gary Kwong, Randell Jesup, Nils Ohlmeier, Jesse Ruderman, Max Jonas Werner, Christian Holler, Jon Coppeard, Eric Rahm, Byron Campen, Eric Rescorla, Xidorn Quan, Cody Crews, Joe Vennix from Rapid7, Muneaki Nishimura, Berend-Jan Wever, Abhishek Arya (Inferno) of the Google Chrome Security Team, Byoungyoung Lee, Chengyu Song, and Taesoo Kim at the Georgia Tech Information Security Center (GTISC), Kent Howard, and Bobby Holley reported these vulnerabilities.

Impact:   A remote user can create content that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.

A remote user can cause denial of service conditions.

A remote or local user can obtain potentially sensitive information.

Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (34.0).
