Synopsis :

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

Description :

The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 3.0.16. Such
versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- Multiple crashes can result in arbitrary code execution.
(MFSA 2009-65)

- The NTLM implementation is vulnerable to reflection
attacks in which NTLM credentials from one application
can be forwarded to another application. (MFSA 2009-68)

- Multiple location bar spoofing vulnerabilities exist.
(MFSA 2009-69)

- A content window which is opened by a chrome window
retains a reference to the chrome window via the
'window.opener' property, which can lead to privilege
escalation. (MFSA 2009-70)

- The exception messages generated by the
'GeckoActiveXObject' differ based on whether or not the
requested COM object's ProgID is present in the system
registry. (MFSA 2009-71)
