FreeBSD : mozilla -- hostname spoofing bug (5360a659-131c-11d9-bc4a-000c41e2cdad)

high Nessus Plugin ID 18934
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

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

Description

When processing URIs that contain an unqualified host name-- specifically, a domain name of only one component-- Mozilla will perform matching against the first component of the domain name in SSL certificates. In other words, in some situations, a certificate issued to 'www.example.com' will be accepted as matching 'www'.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
