CVE-2009-3274

MEDIUM
New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

Mozilla Firefox 3.6a1, 3.5.3, 3.5.2, and earlier 3.5.x versions, and 3.0.14 and earlier 2.x and 3.x versions, on Linux uses a predictable /tmp pathname for files selected from the Downloads window, which allows local users to replace an arbitrary downloaded file by placing a file in a /tmp location before the download occurs, related to the Download Manager component. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third party information.
