New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

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

Description

The installed version of Firefox 3.6.x 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-2012-0457, CVE-2012-0461, CVE-2012-0463, CVE-2012-0464)

- A security bypass vulnerability 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)

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox 3.6.28 or later.
