Firefox < 3.0.8 Multiple Vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 36045
SynopsisThe remote Windows host contains a web browser that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe installed version of Firefox is earlier than 3.0.8. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :
- An XSL transformation vulnerability can be leveraged with a specially crafted stylesheet to crash the browser or to execute arbitrary code. (MFSA 2009-12)
- An error in the XUL tree method '_moveToEdgeShift()' can be leveraged to trigger garbage collection routines on objects that are still in use, leading to a browser crash and possibly execution of arbitrary code. (MFSA 2009-13)
SolutionUpgrade to Firefox 3.0.8 or later.
