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: 5.8


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


The installed version of Firefox is a version prior to 25.0.1 and is, therefore, potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An error exists related to handling input greater than half the maximum size of the 'PRUint32' value.

- An error exists in the 'Null_Cipher' function in the file 'ssl/ssl3con.c' related to handling invalid handshake packets that could allow arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-5605)

- An error exists in the 'CERT_VerifyCert' function in the file 'lib/certhigh/certvfy.c' that could allow invalid certificates to be treated as valid.

- An integer truncation error exists in the function 'PL_ArenaAllocate' in the Netscape Portable Runtime (NSPR) library. (CVE-2013-5607)


Upgrade to Firefox 25.0.1 or later.
