Firefox < 36.0.4 SVG Bypass Privilege Escalation

This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a web browser that is affected by a
privilege escalation vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Mozilla Firefox installed on the remote Windows host is
prior to 36.0.4. It is, therefore, affected by a privilege escalation
vulnerability due to a flaw within 'docshell/base/nsDocShell.cpp',
which relates to SVG format content navigation. A remote attacker can
exploit this to bypass same-origin policy protections, allowing a
possible execution of arbitrary scripts in a privileged context.
