high Nessus Plugin ID 45392
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

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

Description

The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 3.0.19. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- Multiple crashes can result in arbitrary code execution.
(MFSA 2010-16)

- A select event handler for XUL tree items can be called after the item is deleted. (MFSA 2010-17)

- An error exists in the way '<option>' elements are inserted into an XUL tree '<optgroup>' (MFSA 2010-18)

- An error exists in the implementation of the 'windows.navigator.plugins' object. (MFSA 2010-19)

- A browser applet can be used to turn a simple mouse click into a drag-and-drop action, potentially resulting in the unintended loading of resources in a user's browser. (MFSA 2010-20)

- The XMLHttpRequestSpy module in the Firebug add-on exposes an underlying chrome privilege escalation vulnerability. (MFSA 2010-21)

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox 3.0.19 or later.
