Mozilla Firefox < 1.0.4 Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Log Correlation Engine Plugin ID 801295


The remote host is vulnerable to a script injection attack.


The remote host is using Firefox. This version of Firefox is prone to a remote exploit which stems from the 'install()' method. Specifically, an attacker can pass JavaScript to the 'install()' method which would then be executed within the client browser. An attacker exploiting this flaw would only need to be able to entice a user into browsing to a malicious website. Successful exploitation would result in the client browser executing arbitrary code that could impact the confidentiality and integrity of the remote machine.


Upgrade to version 1.0.4 or higher.
