Firefox < 16.0.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Plugin ID 62589

Synopsis

The remote Windows host contains a web browser that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The 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)

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox 16.0.1 or later.
