Mozilla Firefox < 1.5.0.3 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is missing a critical security patch or upgrade.

Description

The remote host is using Firefox. The installed version of Firefox contains various security issues, several of which are critical as they can be easily exploited to execute arbitrary shell code on the remote host. The version of Firefox is vulnerable to multiple denial of service attacks, overflows, information disclosure, privilege escalation, and other issues. An attacker exploiting these flaws would need to be able to convince a user to browse to a malicious URI.

Solution

Upgrade to version 1.5.0.3 or higher.
