Firefox < 3.6.3 Remote Code Execution Vulnerability

High Log Correlation Engine Plugin ID 800762

Synopsis

The remote host has a web browser installed that is vulnerable to a remote code execution attack.

Description

The remote host is running a version of Mozilla Firefox 3.6.x earlier than 3.6.3. Such versions are potentially affected by a memory corruption flaw caused by the re-use of a freed object when moving DOM nodes between documents. A remote attacker, exploiting this flaw, could execute arbitrary code on the remote host subject to the privileges of the user running the affected application.

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox 3.6.3 or later.
