Synopsis

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

Description

The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 3.0.13. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- The browser can be fooled into trusting a malicious SSL server certificate with a null character in the host name.
(MFSA 2009-42)

- A heap overflow in the code that handles regular expressions in certificate names can lead to arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2009-43)

- The location bar and SSL indicators can be spoofed by calling window.open() on an invalid URL. A remote attacker could use this to perform a phishing attack.
(MFSA 2009-44)

- Unspecified JavaScript-related vulnerabilities can lead to memory corruption, and possibly arbitrary execution of code. (MFSA 2009-45)

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox 3.0.13 or later.
