Scientific Linux Security Update : firefox on SL5.x, SL6.x, SL7.x i386/x86_64
High Nessus Plugin ID 82520
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionSeveral flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2015-0813, CVE-2015-0815, CVE-2015-0801)
A flaw was found in the way documents were loaded via resource URLs in, for example, Mozilla's PDF.js PDF file viewer. An attacker could use this flaw to bypass certain restrictions and under certain conditions even execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2015-0816)
A flaw was found in the Beacon interface implementation in Firefox. A web page containing malicious content could allow a remote attacker to conduct a Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) attack. (CVE-2015-0807)
After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
