FreeBSD : firefox -- Crash in TransportSecurityInfo due to cached data (3284d948-140c-4a3e-aa76-3b440e2006a8)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 117650

Synopsis

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.

Description

The Mozilla Foundation reports :

A potentially exploitable crash in TransportSecurityInfo used for SSL can be triggered by data stored in the local cache in the user profile directory. This issue is only exploitable in combination with another vulnerability allowing an attacker to write data into the local cache or from locally installed malware. This issue also triggers a non-exploitable startup crash for users switching between the Nightly and Release versions of Firefox if the same profile is used.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
