Firefox < 10.0.3 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Mac OS X)

High Nessus Plugin ID 58353


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


The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 10.0.3 and thus, is potentially affected by the following security issues :

- Multiple memory corruption issues. By tricking a user into visiting a specially crafted page, these issues may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the affected application. (CVE-2012-0454, CVE-2012-0457, CVE-2012-0459, CVE-2012-0461, CVE-2012-0462, CVE-2012-0463, CVE-2012-0464)

- An HTTP Header security bypass vulnerability exists that can be leveraged by attackers to bypass certain security restrictions and conduct cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2012-0451).

- A security bypass vulnerability exists that can be exploited by an attacker if the victim can be tricked into setting a new home page by dragging a specially crafted link to the 'home' button URL, which will set the user's home page to a 'javascript:' URL. (CVE-2012-0458)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to an out-of-bounds read in SVG filters. (CVE-2012-0456)

- A cross-site scripting vulnerability exists that can be triggered by dragging and dropping 'javascript:' links onto a frame. (CVE-2012-0455)

- 'window.fullScreen' is writeable by untrusted content, allowing attackers to perform UI spoofing attacks. (CVE-2012-0460)


Upgrade to Firefox 10.0.3 ESR or later.
