Description

The mozilla::WaveReader::DecodeAudioData function in Mozilla Firefox before 28.0, Firefox ESR 24.x before 24.4, Thunderbird before 24.4, and SeaMonkey before 2.25 allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information from process heap memory, cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and application crash), or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted WAV file.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-esr-upgrade-24_4
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-28_0
