Mozilla Foundation Unsupported Application Detection

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 40362


The remote host contains one or more unsupported applications from the Mozilla Foundation.


According to its version, there is at least one unsupported Mozilla application (Firefox, Thunderbird, and/or SeaMonkey) installed on the remote host. This version of the software is no longer actively maintained.

Lack of support implies that no new security patches for the product will be released by the vendor. As a result, it is likely to contain security vulnerabilities.


Upgrade to a version that is currently supported.
