FreeBSD : mozilla -- hostname spoofing bug (5360a659-131c-11d9-bc4a-000c41e2cdad)

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

When processing URIs that contain an unqualified host name--
specifically, a domain name of only one component-- Mozilla will
perform matching against the first component of the domain name in SSL
certificates. In other words, in some situations, a certificate issued
to 'www.example.com' will be accepted as matching 'www'.
