high Nessus Plugin ID 56751
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 Windows host contains a web browser that is potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 8.0 and thus, is potentially affected by the following security issues :

- Certain invalid sequences are not handled properly in 'Shift-JIS' encoding and can allow cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2011-3648)

- The addition of the 'Azure' graphics functionality re- introduced a cross-origin information disclosure issue previously described in CVE-2011-2986. (CVE-2011-3649)

- Profiling JavaScript files with many functions can cause the application to crash. It may be possible to trigger this behavior even when the debugging APIs are not being used. (CVE-2011-3650)

- Multiple memory safety issues exist. (CVE-2011-3651)

- An unchecked memory allocation failure can cause the application to crash. (CVE-2011-3652)

- An issue with WebGL graphics and GPU drivers can allow cross-origin image theft. (CVE-2011-3653)

- An error exists related to SVG 'mpath' linking to a non-SVG element and can result in potentially exploitable application crashes. (CVE-2011-3654)

- An error in internal privilege checking can allow web content to obtain elevated privileges.
(CVE-2011-3655)

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox 8 or later.
