Firefox 3.6 < 3.6.4 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Synopsis :

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

Description :

The installed version of Firefox 3.6.x is earlier than 3.6.4. Such
versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- Multiple crashes can result in arbitrary code
execution. (MFSA 2010-26)

- A plugin is allowed to hold a reference to an object
owned by a second plugin even after the second plugin
is unloaded and the referenced object no longer exists.
This could allow arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2010-28)

- An error in 'nsGenericDOMDataNode' allows a buffer
overflow in certain DOM nodes leading to arbitrary code
execution. (MFSA 2010-29)

- An error in a XSLT node sorting function contains an
integer overflow leading to application crashes and
possible arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2010-30)

- A cross-site scripting vulnerability exists when
content from one domain is embedded in pages from other
domains and the 'focus()' function is used, leading to
information disclosure. (MFSA 2010-31)

- The HTTP header, 'Content-Disposition: attachment', is
ignored when the HTTP header 'Content-Type: multipart'
is present. This could allow cross-site scripting to
occur. (MFSA 2010-32)

- The pseudo-random number generator is only seeded once
per browsing session and 'Math.random()' may be used to
recover the seed value allowing the browser instance
to be tracked across different websites. (MFSA 2010-33)
