low Nessus Plugin ID 18983
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.


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


A Mozilla Foundation Security Advisory states :

If a user bookmarked a malicious page as a Firefox sidebar panel that page could execute arbitrary programs by opening a privileged page and injecting JavaScript into it.


Update the affected packages.
