Mozilla Firefox 3.5 < 3.5.2 Proxy Response DoS

High

Synopsis

The remote host is affected by a privilege escalation vulnerability.

Description

The installed version of Mozilla Firefox 3.5 is earlier than 3.5.2. Such versions are potentially affected by a privilege-escalation vulnerability. The issues exists when the browser with an add-on implementing a Content Policy opens pages that have a 'Link:' HTTP header. An attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary JavaScript code with chrome privileges.

Solution

Upgrade to Mozilla Firefox 3.5.2/3.0.12 or later.
