High Nessus Plugin ID 50085

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

Synopsis

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

Description

The installed version of Firefox 3.6 is earlier than 3.6.11. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- Multiple memory safety bugs could lead to memory corruption, potentially resulting in arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2010-64)

- By passing an excessively long string to 'document.write', it may be possible to trigger a buffer overflow condition resulting in arbitrary code execution on the remote system. (MFSA 2010-65)

- A use-after-free error in nsBarProp could allow arbitrary code execution on the remote system.
(MFSA 2010-66)

- A dangling pointer vulnerability in LookupGetterOrSetter could allow arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2010-67)

- The Gopher parser is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability. (MFSA 2010-68)

- It is possible to steal information from a site in a different domain using modal calls. (MFSA 2010-69)

- It is possible to establish a valid SSL connection to a remote host, provided the SSL certificate was created with a common name containing a wild card followed by partial IP address of the remote host.
(MFSA 2010-70)

- A function used to load external libraries on Windows platform could allow loading of unsafe DLLs thus allowing binary planting attacks. (MFSA 2010-71)

- The SSL implementation allows servers to use Diffie-Hellman Ephemeral mode (DHE) with a very short key length. Such key lengths could be easily breakable with modern hardware. (MFSA 2010-72)

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox 3.6.11 or later.
