High Nessus Plugin ID 55902

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: 5.9

Synopsis

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

Description

The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 6.0 and thus, is potentially affected by the following security issues :

- A dangling pointer vulnerability exists in an SVG text manipulation routine. (CVE-2011-0084)

- Several memory safety bugs exist in the browser engine that may permit remote code execution. (CVE-2011-2985, CVE-2011-2989, CVE-2011-2991, CVE-2011-2992)

- A cross-origin data theft vulnerability exists when using canvas and Windows D2D hardware acceleration.
(CVE-2011-2986)

- A heap overflow vulnerability exists in WebGL's ANGLE library. (CVE-2011-2987)

- A buffer overflow vulnerability exists in WebGL when using an overly long shader program. (CVE-2011-2988)

- Two errors exist related to Content Security Policy that can lead to information disclosure. (CVE-2011-2990)

- An unspecified error exists that can allow unsigned JavaScript to call into a signed JAR and inherit the signed JAR's permissions and identity. (CVE-2011-2993)

- There is an error in the implementation of the 'window.location' JavaScript object when creating named frames. This can be exploited to bypass the same-origin policy and potentially conduct cross-site scripting attacks.(CVE-2011-2999)

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox 6 or later.
