New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 7.4
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing a security update.
Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Firefox.
(CVE-2008-2798, CVE-2008-2799, CVE-2008-2811)
Several flaws were found in the way malformed web content was displayed. A web page containing specially crafted content could potentially trick a Firefox user into surrendering sensitive information. (CVE-2008-2800)
Two local file disclosure flaws were found in Firefox. A web page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to reveal the contents of a local file to a remote attacker. (CVE-2008-2805, CVE-2008-2810)
A flaw was found in the way a malformed .properties file was processed by Firefox. A malicious extension could read uninitialized memory, possibly leaking sensitive data to the extension. (CVE-2008-2807)
A flaw was found in the way Firefox displayed information about self-signed certificates. It was possible for a self-signed certificate to contain multiple alternate name entries, which were not all displayed to the user, allowing them to mistakenly extend trust to an unknown site. (CVE-2008-2809)
SolutionUpdate the affected firefox package.
