This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200706-06
(Mozilla products: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Mozilla developers fixed several bugs involving memory corruption
through various vectors (CVE-2007-2867, CVE-2007-2868). Additionally,
several errors leading to crash, memory exhaustion or CPU consumption
were fixed (CVE-2007-1362, CVE-2007-2869). Finally, errors related to
the APOP protocol (CVE-2007-1558), XSS prevention (CVE-2007-2870) and
spoofing prevention (CVE-2007-2871) were fixed.

Impact :

A remote attacker could entice a user to view a specially crafted web
page that will trigger one of the vulnerabilities, possibly leading to
the execution of arbitrary code or a Denial of Service. It is also
possible for an attacker to spoof the address bar or other browser
elements, obtain sensitive APOP information, or perform cross-site
scripting attacks, leading to the exposure of sensitive information,
like user credentials.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
