FreeBSD : mozilla -- security icon spoofing (e9f9d232-0cb2-11d9-8a8a-000c41e2cdad)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 19152
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

Under certain situations it is possible for the security icon which Mozilla displays when connected to a site using SSL to be spoofed.
This could be used to make so-called 'phishing attacks' more difficult to detect.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
