high Nessus Plugin ID 52530


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


The installed version of Firefox 3.5 is earlier than 3.5.17. Such versions are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple memory corruption errors exist and may lead to arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2010-74, MFSA 2011-01)

- An error exists in the processing of recursive calls to 'eval()' when the call is wrapped in a try/catch statement. This error causes dialog boxes to be displayed with no content and non-functioning buttons.
Closing the dialog results in default acceptance of the dialog. (MFSA 2011-02)

- A use-after-free error exists in a method used by 'JSON.stringify' and can allow arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2011-03)

- A buffer overflow vulnerability exists in the JavaScript engine's internal memory mapping of non-local variables and may lead to code execution. (MFSA 2011-04)

- A buffer overflow vulnerability exists in the JavaScript engine's internal mapping of string values and may lead to code execution. (MFSA 2011-05)

- A use-after-free error exists such that a JavaScript 'Worker' can be used to keep a reference to an object which can be freed during garbage collection. This vulnerability may lead to arbitrary code execution.
(MFSA 2011-06)

- A buffer overflow error exists related to the creation very long strings and the insertion of those strings into an HTML document. This vulnerability may lead to arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2011-07)

- An input validation error exists in the class, 'ParanoidFragmentSink', which allows inline JavaScript and 'javascript:' URLs in a chrome document. Note that no unsafe usage occurs in Mozilla products, however community generated extensions could.(MFSA 2011-08)

- A cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability exists when an HTTP 307 redirect is received in response to a plugin's request. The request is forwarded to the new location without the plugin's knowledge and with custom headers intact, even across origins. (MFSA 2011-10)


Upgrade to Firefox 3.5.17 or later.
