high Nessus Plugin ID 39853
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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.
