Firefox 3.5.x < 3.5.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 39853


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


Firefox 3.5 is installed on the remote host. This version is potentially affected by multiple flaws :

- It may be possible to crash the browser or potentially execute arbitrary code by using a flash object that presents a slow script dialog. (MFSA 2009-35)

- In certain cases after a return from a native function, such as escape(), the Just-in-Time (JIT) compiler could get into a corrupt state. An attacker who is able to trick a user of the affected software into visiting a malicious link may be able to leverage this issue to run arbitrary code subject to the user's privileges.
(MFSA 2009-41)


Upgrade to Firefox 3.5.1 or later.
