Firefox < Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 30209


The remote Windows host contains a web browser that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The installed version of Firefox is affected by various security issues :

- Several stability bugs leading to crashes which, in some cases, show traces of memory corruption

- Several file input focus stealing vulnerabilities that could result in uploading of arbitrary files provided their full path and file names are known.

- Several issues that allow scripts from page content to escape from their sandboxed context and/or run with chrome privileges, resulting in privilege escalation, XSS, and/or remote code execution.

- An issue that could allow a malicious site to inject newlines into the application's password store when a user saves his password, resulting in corruption of saved passwords for other sites.

- A directory traversal vulnerability via the 'chrome:' URI.

- A vulnerability involving 'designMode' frames that may result in web browsing history and forward navigation stealing.

- An information disclosure issue in the BMP decoder.

- A file action dialog tampering vulnerability involving timer-enabled security dialogs.

- Mis-handling of locally-saved plaintext files.

- Possible disclosure of sensitive URL parameters, such as session tokens, via the .href property of stylesheet DOM nodes reflecting the final URI of the stylesheet after following any 302 redirects.

- A failure to display a web forgery warning dialog in cases where the entire contents of a page are enclosed in a '<div>' with absolute positioning.

- Multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities related to character encoding.


Upgrade to Firefox or later.
