Firefox 10.x < 10.0.1 Memory Corruption

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a web browser that is potentially
affected by a memory corruption vulnerability.

Description :

The installed version of Firefox 10.x is earlier than 10.0.1 and is,
therefore, potentially affected by a memory corruption vulnerability.

A use-after-free error exists in the method
'nsXBLDocumentInfo::ReadPrototypeBindings' and XBL bindings are not
properly removed from a hash table in the event of failure. Clean up
processes may then attempt to use this data and cause application
crashes. These application crashes are potentially exploitable.

Solution :

Upgrade to Firefox 10.0.1 or later.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 9.3
CVSS Temporal Score : 8.1
Public Exploit Available : false
