Firefox < 3.0.5 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High

Synopsis

The remote Windows host contains a web browser that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The installed version of Firefox 3.0 is earlier than 3.0.5. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- There are several stability bugs in the browser engine that may lead to crashes with evidence of memory corruption. (MFSA 2008-60)

- XBL bindings can be used to read data from other domains. (MFSA 2008-61)

- The feed preview still allows for JavaScript privilege escalation. (MFSA 2008-62)

- Sensitive data may be disclosed in an XHR response when an XMLHttpRequest is made to a same-origin resource, which 302 redirects to a resource in a different domain. (MFSA 2008-64)

- A website may be able to access a limited amount of data from a different domain by loading a same-domain JavaScript URL which redirects to an off-domain target resource containing data that is not parsable as JavaScript. (MFSA 2008-65)

- Errors arise when parsing URLs with leading whitespace and control characters. (MFSA 2008-66)

- An escaped null byte is ignored by the CSS parser and treated as if it was not present in the CSS input string. (MFSA 2008-67)

- XSS and JavaScript privilege escalation are possible. (MFSA 2008-68)

- XSS vulnerabilities in SessionStore may allow for violating the browser's same-origin policy and performing an XSS attack or running arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges. (MFSA 2008-69)

- A denial of service issue when the application handles a maliciously crafted webpage containing a 'HTMLSelectElement' object with a large length attribute.

Solution

Upgrade to version 3.0.5 or higher.
