This script is Copyright (C) 2014-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a web browser that is affected by a
signature forgery vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Firefox ESR 24.x installed on the remote host is prior
to 24.8.1. It is, therefore, affected by a flaw in the Network
Security Services (NSS) library, which is due to lenient parsing of
ASN.1 values involved in a signature and can lead to the forgery of
RSA signatures, such as SSL certificates.
