Firefox 10.x < 10.0.1 Memory Corruption
High Nessus Plugin ID 57919
SynopsisThe remote Windows host contains a web browser that is potentially affected by a memory corruption vulnerability.
DescriptionThe installed version of Firefox 10.x is earlier than 10.0.1 and is, therefore, potentially affected by a memory corruption vulnerability.
A use-after-free error exists in the method 'nsXBLDocumentInfo::ReadPrototypeBindings' and XBL bindings are not properly removed from a hash table in the event of failure. Clean up processes may then attempt to use this data and cause application crashes. These application crashes are potentially exploitable.
SolutionUpgrade to Firefox 10.0.1 or later.
