Synopsis

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

Description

A Secunia Research advisory reports :

Secunia Research has reported a vulnerability in multiple browsers, which can be exploited by malicious people to spoof the content of websites.

The problem is that a website can inject content into another site's window if the target name of the window is known. This can e.g. be exploited by a malicious website to spoof the content of a pop-up window opened on a trusted website.

Secunia has constructed a test, which can be used to check if your browser is affected by this issue :

A workaround for Mozilla-based browsers is available.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
