Mozilla Firefox < 3.0.19 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High

Synopsis

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

Description

The remote host is running a version of Mozilla Firefox earlier than 3.0.19. Such versions are potentially affected by multiple security issues :

- Multiple crashes can result in arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2010-16)

- A select event handler for XUL tree items can be called after the item is deleted. (MFSA 2010-17)

- An error exists in the way '<option>' elements are inserted into a XUL tree '<optgroup>'. (MFSA 2010-18)

- An error exists in the implementation of the 'windows.navigator.plugins' object. (MFSA 2010-19)

- A browser applet can be used to turn a simple mouse click into a drag-and-drop action, potentially resulting in the unintended loading of resources in a user's browser. (MFSA 2010-20)

- The XMLHttpRequestSpy module in the Firebug add-on exposes an underlying chrome privilege escalation vulnerability. (MFSA 2010-21)

Solution

Upgrade to Mozilla Firefox 3.0.19 or later.
