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: 6.7
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionSecurity issues were identified and fixed in firefox :
layout/generic/nsObjectFrame.cpp in Mozilla Firefox 3.6.7 does not properly free memory in the parameter array of a plugin instance, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted HTML document, related to the DATA and SRC attributes of an OBJECT element.
