Firefox < 3.0.16 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 43173

Synopsis

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

Description

The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 3.0.16. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- Multiple crashes can result in arbitrary code execution.
(MFSA 2009-65)

- The NTLM implementation is vulnerable to reflection attacks in which NTLM credentials from one application can be forwarded to another application. (MFSA 2009-68)

- Multiple location bar spoofing vulnerabilities exist. (MFSA 2009-69)

- A content window which is opened by a chrome window retains a reference to the chrome window via the 'window.opener' property, which can lead to privilege escalation. (MFSA 2009-70)

- The exception messages generated by the 'GeckoActiveXObject' differ based on whether or not the requested COM object's ProgID is present in the system registry. (MFSA 2009-71)

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox 3.0.16 or later.
