New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

A web browser installed on the remote macOS host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Mozilla Firefox installed on the remote macOS host is prior to 62. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as noted in Mozilla Firefox stable channel update release notes for 2018/09/05. Please refer to the release notes for additional information. Note that Nessus has not attempted to exploit these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade to Mozilla Firefox version 62 or later.
