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: 5.8


The remote Windows host contains a web browser that is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


The installed version of Firefox 3.6.x is earlier than 3.6.3. Such versions are potentially affected by a memory corruption flaw caused by the re-use of an object that has been freed when moving DOM nodes between documents.

A remote attacker, exploiting this flaw, can leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code on the remote host subject to the privileges of the user running the affected application.


Upgrade to Firefox 3.6.3 or later.
