High Log Correlation Engine Plugin ID 800767

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors

Description

The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 3.0.12. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- Multiple memory corruption vulnerabilities could potentially be exploited to execute arbitrary code. (MFSA 2009-34)

- It may be possible to crash the browser or potentially execute arbitrary code by using a flash object that presents a slow script dialog. (MFSA 2009-35)

- Glyph rendering libraries are affected by multiple heap/integer overflows. (MFSA 2009-36)

- A vulnerability involving SVG element could be exploited to crash the browser or execute arbitrary code on the remote system. (MFSA 2009-37)

- A vulnerability in 'setTimeout' could allow unsafe access to the 'this' object from chrome code. An attacker could exploit this flaw to run arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges. (MFSA 2009-39)

- It may be possible for JavaScript from one website to bypass cross-origin wrapper, and unsafely access properties of an object from another website. (MFSA 2009-40)

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox 3.0.12 or later.
