High Nessus Plugin ID 71021

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description

Multiple security issues were discovered in Firefox. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted page, an attacker could possibly exploit these to cause a denial of service via application crash, potentially execute arbitrary code, or lead to information disclosure. (CVE-2013-1741, CVE-2013-2566, CVE-2013-5605, CVE-2013-5607).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected firefox package.
