Description

Mozilla Firefox before 42.0 and Firefox ESR 38.x before 38.4, when a Java plugin is enabled, allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (incorrect garbage collection and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted Java applet that deallocates an in-use JavaScript wrapper.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-esr-upgrade-38_4
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-42_0
