Mozilla < 1.7.5 Network News Transport Protocol Remote Heap Overflow

High

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a heap overflow.

Description

The remote host is using Mozilla. The remote version of this software is vulnerable to a heap overflow against its NNTP functionality. This may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote host. To exploit this flaw, an attacker would need to set up a rogue website and lure a victim on the remote host into visiting it.

Solution

Upgrade to Mozilla 1.7.5 or higher.
