Firefox 3.0.x < 3.0.7 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 35778


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 3.0.7. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- By exploiting stability bugs in the browser engine, it might be possible for an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote system under certain conditions. (MFSA 2009-07)

- A vulnerability in Mozilla's garbage collection process could be exploited to run arbitrary code on the remote system. (MFSA 2009-08)

- It may be possible for a website to read arbitrary XML data from another domain by using nsIRDFService and a cross-domain redirect. (MFSA 2009-09)

- Vulnerabilities in the PNG libraries used by Mozilla could be exploited to execute arbitrary code on the remote system. (MFSA 2009-10)

- Certain invisible characters are decoded before being displayed on the location bar. An attacker may be able to exploit this flaw to spoof the location bar and display a link to a malicious URL. (MFSA 2009-11)


Upgrade to Firefox 3.0.7 or later.
