Mozilla Firefox < 3.0.12 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium

Synopsis

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

Description

Versions of Firefox prior to 3.0.12 are affected by the following security issues :

- Multiple memory corruption vulnerabilities could potentially be exploited to execute arbitrary code. (MFSA 2009-34) - It may be possible to crash the browser or potentially execute arbitrary code by using a flash object that presents a slow script dialog. (MFSA 2009-35) - Glyph rendering libraries are affected by multiple heap/integer overflows. (MFSA 2009-36) - A vulnerability involving SVG element could be exploited to crash the browser or execute arbitrary code on the remote system. (MFSA 2009-37) - A vulnerability in 'setTimeout' could allow unsafe access to the 'this' object from chrome code. An attacker could exploit this flaw to run arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges. (MFSA 2009-39) - It may be possible for JavaScript from one website to bypass cross-origin wrapper, and unsafely access properties of an object from another website. (MFSA 2009-40)
