Scientific Linux Security Update : firefox on SL5.x, SL6.x, SL7.x i386/x86_64
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 85296
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA flaw was discovered in Mozilla Firefox that could be used to violate the same-origin policy and inject web script into a non-privileged part of the built-in PDF file viewer (PDF.js). An attacker could create a malicious web page that, when viewed by a victim, could steal arbitrary files (including private SSH keys, the /etc/passwd file, and other potentially sensitive files) from the system 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.
