Synopsis :

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

Description :

Mozilla Foundation reports :

The Firefox 2.0.0.10 update contains fixes for three bugs that improve
the stability of the product. These crashes showed some evidence of
memory corruption under certain circumstances and we presume that with
enough effort at least some of these could be exploited to run
arbitrary code.
