Mozilla Firefox 1.5.x < 1.5.0.3 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium

Synopsis

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

Description

Versions of Mozilla Firefox 1.5.x prior to 1.5.0.3 are affected by 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.
