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: 5.9
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-2015-2724, CVE-2015-2725, CVE-2015-2722, CVE-2015-2727, CVE-2015-2728, CVE-2015-2729, CVE-2015-2731, CVE-2015-2733, CVE-2015-2734, CVE-2015-2735, CVE-2015-2736, CVE-2015-2737, CVE-2015-2738, CVE-2015-2739, CVE-2015-2740)
It was found that Firefox skipped key-pinning checks when handling an error that could be overridden by the user (for example an expired certificate error). This flaw allowed a user to override a pinned certificate, which is an action the user should not be able to perform. (CVE-2015-2741)
A flaw was discovered in Mozilla's PDF.js PDF file viewer. When combined with another vulnerability, it could allow execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox.
After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
SolutionUpdate the affected firefox and / or firefox-debuginfo packages.
