Mozilla Firefox and Firefox ESR CVE-2017-7824 Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Mozilla Firefox and Firefox ESR are prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability because they fail to perform adequate boundary-checks on user supplied data.

An attacker can exploit this issue to crash the affected application, resulting in denial-of-service conditions. Due to the nature of this issue, arbitrary code execution may be possible but this has not been confirmed.

These issues have been fixed in Firefox 56 and Firefox ESR 52.4.
