DESCRIPTION:
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Mozilla Firefox, which
can be exploited by malicious people to conduct spoofing and
cross-site scripting attacks, disclose certain sensitive information,
bypass certain security restrictions, and compromise a user's system.

1) Some unspecified errors in the browser engine can be exploited to
corrupt memory.

2) An error when handling drag and drop events can be exploited to
display an arbitrary site while showing the URL of the previous
site.

3) A use-after-free error exists within the
"nsSMILTimeValueSpec::IsEventBased()" function.

4) A use-after-free error exists within the "nsDocument::AdoptNode()"
function when handling document loads.

5) An out-of-bounds read error within the
"ElementAnimations::EnsureStyleRuleFor()" function can be exploited
to cause a heap-based buffer overflow.

6) A bad cast error within the "nsTableFrame::InsertFrames()"
function can be exploited to corrupt memory.

7) An error when handling history navigation can be exploited to
display an arbitrary site while showing the URL of the previous
site.

8) An error within the context menu functionality can be exploited to
conduct cross-site scripting attacks via a "data:" URL.

9) An error within the feed-view functionality can be exploited to
conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

10) A use-after-free error exists within the
"nsGlobalWindow::PageHidden()" function when handling focus events.

11) An error when handling compartments can be exploited to bypass
the same-compartment security wrappers (SCSW).

12) An out-of-bounds read error within the color management library
can be exploited to disclose certain memory.

13) An error when handling the "X-Frame-Options" headers can be
exploited to conduct clickjacking attacks.

14) An error within the "JSDependentString::undepend()" function when
converting a dependent string into a fixed string can be exploited to
corrupt memory.

15) An error within the implementation of the Content Security Policy
(CSP) includes sensitive data within the "blocked-uri" parameter and
can be exploited to disclose a user's OAuth 2.0 access tokens and
OpenID credentials.

16) An error when handling certificate exceptions can be exploited to
conduct clickjacking attacks via the about:certerror page.

17) An error when handling "feed:" URLs can be exploited to bypass
the output filters and execute arbitrary JavaScript code.

18) An unspecified error within the browser engine can be exploited
to bypass the JavaScript sandbox and execute arbitrary code via the
"javascript:" URL.

SOLUTION:
Upgrade to version 14.
