The remote Mac OS X host contains a web browser that is affected by
The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 16.0.2 and is
therefore potentially affected by the following security issues :
- The true value of 'window.location' can be shadowed by
user content through the use of the 'valueOf' method,
which can be combined with some plugins to perform
cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2012-4194)
- The 'CheckURL' function of 'window.location' can be
forced to return the wrong calling document and
principal, allowing a cross-site scripting attack.
- It is possible to use property injection by prototype to
bypass security wrapper protections on the 'Location'
object, allowing the cross-origin reading of the
'Location' object. (CVE-2012-4196)
