Firefox ESR 24.x < 24.8.1 NSS Signature Verification Vulnerability (Mac OS X)
High Nessus Plugin ID 77899
SynopsisThe remote Mac OS X host contains a web browser that is affected by a signature forgery vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of Firefox ESR 24.x installed on the remote host is prior to 24.8.1. It is, therefore, affected by a flaw in the Network Security Services (NSS) library, which is due to lenient parsing of ASN.1 values involved in a signature and can lead to the forgery of RSA signatures, such as SSL certificates.
SolutionUpgrade to Firefox ESR 24.8.1 or later.
