Firefox 3.0.x < 3.0.6 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 35581


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


The installed version of Firefox 3.0.x is earlier than 3.0.6. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- There are several stability bugs in the browser engine that could lead to crashes with evidence of memory corruption. (MFSA 2009-01)

- A chrome XBL method can be used in conjunction with 'window.eval' to execute arbitrary JavaScript within the context of another website, violating the same origin policy. (MFSA 2009-02)

- A form input control's type could be changed during the restoration of a closed tab to the path of a local file whose location was known to the attacker. (MFSA 2009-03)

- An attacker may be able to inject arbitrary code into a chrome document and then execute it with chrome privileges if he can trick a user into downloading a malicious HTML file and a .desktop shortcut file. (MFSA 2009-04)

- Cookies marked HTTPOnly are readable by JavaScript via the 'XMLHttpRequest.getResponseHeader' and 'XMLHttpRequest.getAllResponseHeaders' APIs. (MFSA 2009-05)

- The 'Cache-Control: no-store' and 'Cache-Control: no-cache' HTTP directives for HTTPS pages are ignored by Firefox 3, which could lead to exposure of sensitive information. (MFSA 2009-06)


Upgrade to Firefox 3.0.6 or later.
