FreeBSD : firefox -- Same-origin-policy violation using Service Workers with plugins (172b22cb-d3f6-11e5-ac9e-485d605f4717)

high Nessus Plugin ID 88743
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.

Description

The Mozilla Foundation reports :

MFSA 2016-13 Jason Pang of OneSignal reported that service workers intercept responses to plugin network requests made through the browser. Plugins which make security decisions based on the content of network requests can have these decisions subverted if a service worker forges responses to those requests. For example, a forged crossdomain.xml could allow a malicious site to violate the same-origin policy using the Flash plugin.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
