Firefox < 3.0.13 Multiple Vulnerabilities

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a web browser that is
affected by multiple flaws.

Description :

The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 3.0.13. Such
versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- The browser can be fooled into trusting a malicious SSL
server certificate with a null character in the host name.
(MFSA 2009-42)

- A heap overflow in the code that handles regular
expressions in certificate names can lead to
arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2009-43)

- The location bar and SSL indicators can be spoofed
by calling window.open() on an invalid URL. A remote
attacker could use this to perform a phishing attack.
(MFSA 2009-44)

- Unspecified JavaScript-related vulnerabilities can lead
to memory corruption, and possibly arbitrary execution
of code. (MFSA 2009-45)
