Mozilla Firefox 3.6.x < 3.6.11 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium

Synopsis

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

Description

Versions of Firefox 3.6.x earlier than 3.6.11 are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple memory safety bugs could lead to memory corruption, potentially resulting in arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2010-64) - By passing an excessively long string to 'document.write' it may be possible to trigger a buffer overflow condition resulting in arbitrary code execution on the remote system. (MFSA 2010-65) - A use-after-free error in nsBarProp could allow arbitrary code execution on the remote system. (MFSA 2010-66) - A dangling pointer vulnerability in LookupGetterOrSetter could allow arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2010-67) - The Gopher parser is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability. (MFSA 2010-68) - It is possible to steal information from a site in a different domain using modal calls. (MFSA 2010-69) - It is possible to establish a valid SSL connection to a remote host, provided the SSL certificate was created with a common name containing a wild card followed by the partial IP address of the remote host. (MFSA 2010-70) - A function used to load external libraries on the Windows platform could allow loading of unsafe DLL's thus allowing binary planting attack. (MFSA 2010-71) - The SSL implementation allows servers to use Diffie-Hellman mode (DHE) with a very short key length. Such key lengths could be easily breakable with modern hardware. (MFSA 2010-72)

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox 3.6.11 or later.
