Firefox < 16.0.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Mac OS X)
High Nessus Plugin ID 62585
SynopsisThe remote Mac OS X host contains a web browser that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe installed version of Firefox is earlier than 16.0.1 and is therefore potentially affected by the following security issues :
- An unspecified error related to the WebSockets implementation and the function 'mozilla::net::FailDelayManager::Lookup' can allow application crashes and potentially, arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2012-4191)
- An unspecified error exists that can allow attackers to bypass the 'Same Origin Policy' and access the 'Location' object. (CVE-2012-4192)
- An error exists related to 'security wrappers' and the function 'defaultValue()' that can allow cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2012-4193)
SolutionUpgrade to Firefox 16.0.1 or later.
