Mozilla Multiple Products XPInstall Arbitrary File Overwrite

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host has a web browser installed that has file
permissions set incorrectly.

Description :

The remote host is using Mozilla and/or Firefox, an alternative web
browser.

The version of this software is prone to an improper file permission
setting. This flaw only exists if the browser is installed by the
Mozilla Foundation package management, therefore, this alert might be
a false positive.

A local attacker could overwrite arbitrary files or execute arbitrary
code in the context of the user running the browser.
