Description

The accessibility-tools feature in Mozilla Firefox before 42.0 on OS X improperly interacts with the implementation of the TABLE element, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code by using an NSAccessibilityIndexAttribute value to reference a row index.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-42_0
