high Nessus Plugin ID 42307
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

A web browser on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The installed version of SeaMonkey is earlier than 2.0. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- Provided the browser is configured to use Proxy Auto-configuration it may be possible for an attacker to crash the browser or execute arbitrary code.
(MFSA 2009-55)

- Mozilla's GIF image parser is affected by a heap-based buffer overflow. (MFSA 2009-56)

- If a file contains right-to-left override character (RTL) in the filename it may be possible for an attacker to obfuscate the filename and extension of the file being downloaded. (MFSA 2009-62)

Solution

Upgrade to SeaMonkey 2.0 or later.
