High Nessus Plugin ID 28351


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

The Firefox update contains fixes for three bugs that improve the stability of the product. These crashes showed some evidence of memory corruption under certain circumstances and we presume that with enough effort at least some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code.
