Mozilla Firefox < 1.0.4 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host has a web browser installed that is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

Versions of Mozilla Firefox prior to 1.0.4 are prone to a remote exploit which stems from the 'install()' method. Specifically, an attacker can pass JavaScript to the 'install()' method which would then be executed within the client browser. An attacker exploiting this flaw would only need to be able to entice a user into browsing to a malicious website. Successful exploitation would result in the client browser executing arbitrary code that could impact the confidentiality and integrity of the remote machine.

Solution

Upgrade to version 1.0.4 or higher.
