Description

Mozilla Firefox before 48.0 and Firefox ESR 45.x before 45.3 on Linux make cairo _cairo_surface_get_extents calls that do not properly interact with libav header allocation in FFmpeg 0.10, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted video.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-esr-upgrade-45_3
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-48_0
