critical Nessus Plugin ID 18982
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

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

Description

The Mozilla project's family of browsers contain a design flaw that can allow a website to spoof almost perfectly any part of the Mozilla user interface, including spoofing websites for phishing or internal elements such as the 'Master Password' dialog box. This achieved by manipulating 'chrome' through remote XUL content. Recent versions of Mozilla have been fixed to not allow untrusted documents to utilize 'chrome' in this way.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
