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-200708-09
(Mozilla products: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Mozilla developers fixed several bugs, including an issue with
modifying XPCNativeWrappers (CVE-2007-3738), a problem with event
handlers executing elements outside of the document (CVE-2007-3737),
and a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability (CVE-2007-3736). They
also fixed a problem with promiscuous IFRAME access (CVE-2007-3089) and
an XULRunner URL spoofing issue with the wyciwyg:// URI and HTTP 302
redirects (CVE-2007-3656). Denials of Service involving corrupted
memory were fixed in the browser engine (CVE-2007-3734) and the
JavaScript engine (CVE-2007-3735). Finally, another XSS vulnerability
caused by a regression in the CVE-2007-3089 patch was fixed
(CVE-2007-3844).

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 perform cross-site scripting attacks, which
could result in the exposure of sensitive information such as login
credentials.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
