Synopsis

The remote Mac OS X host contains a web browser that is potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The installed version of Firefox 3.6 is earlier than 3.6.24. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- There is an error within the JSSubScriptLoader that incorrectly unwraps 'XPCNativeWrappers'. By tricking a user into installing a malicious plug-in, an attacker could exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2011-3647)

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

- 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)

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox 3.6.24 or later.
