Firefox < 3.0.7 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 3.0.7. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- By exploiting stability bugs in the browser engine, it might be possible for an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote system under certain conditions. (MFSA 2009-07)

- A vulnerability in Mozilla's garbage collection process could be exploited to run arbitrary code on the remote system. (MFSA 2009-08)

- It may be possible for a website to read arbitrary XML data from another domain by using nsIRDFService and a cross-domain redirect. (MFSA 2009-09)

- Vulnerabilities in the PNG libraries used by Mozilla could be exploited to execute arbitrary code on the remote system. (MFSA 2009-10)

- Certain invisible characters are decoded before being displayed on the location bar. An attacker may be able to exploit this flaw to spoof the location bar and display a link to a malicious URL. (MFSA 2009-11).

Solution

Upgrade to version 3.0.7 or higher.
