Language:

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 Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Update to new upstream Firefox version 3.5.8, fixing multiple security issues detailed in the upstream advisories:
http://www.mozilla.org/security/known- vulnerabilities/firefox35.html#firefox3.5.8 Update also includes all packages depending on gecko-libs rebuilt against new version of Firefox / XULRunner.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
