Debian DSA-777-1 : mozilla - frame injection spoofing

high Nessus Plugin ID 19433
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 Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

A vulnerability has been discovered in Mozilla and Mozilla Firefox that allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary JavaScript from one page into the frameset of another site. Thunderbird is not affected by this and Galeon will be automatically fixed as it uses Mozilla components.

Solution

Upgrade the Mozilla package.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in version 1.7.8-1sarge1.
