New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 6.7


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


The installed version of Firefox 3.5 is earlier than 3.5.3. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- Multiple memory corruption vulnerabilities could potentially allow arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2009-47)

- The columns of a XUL tree element can manipulated in a way that leads to a dangling pointer. A remote attacker could exploit this to crash the browser, or execute arbitrary code. (MFSA 2009-49)

- A URL containing certain Unicode characters with tall tall-line height is displayed incorrectly in the location bar.
A remote attacker could use this to prevent a user from seeing the full URL of a malicious website. (MFSA 2009-50)

- A remote attacker can leverage 'BrowserFeedWriter' to execute JavaScript code with Chrome privileges.
(MFSA 2009-51)
