high Nessus Plugin ID 40351
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.

Synopsis

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

Description

The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 3.0.12. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- Multiple memory corruption vulnerabilities could potentially be exploited to execute arbitrary code. (MFSA 2009-34)

- 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)

- Glyph rendering libraries are affected by multiple heap/ integer overflows. (MFSA 2009-36)

- A vulnerability involving SVG element could be exploited to crash the browser or execute arbitrary code on the remote system. (MFSA 2009-37)

- A SOCKS5 proxy that replies with a hostname containing more than 15 characters can corrupt the subsequent data stream. This can lead to a denial of service, though there is reportedly no memory corruption.
(MFSA 2009-38)

- A vulnerability in 'setTimeout' could allow unsafe access to the 'this' object from chrome code. An attacker could exploit this flaw to run arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges. (MFSA 2009-39)

- It may be possible for JavaScript from one website to bypass cross origin wrapper, and unsafely access properties of an object from another website.
(MFSA 2009-40)

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox 3.0.12 or later.
