Firefox ESR < 38.7 Multiple Vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Plugin ID 89874

Synopsis

The remote Windows host contains a web browser that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Mozilla Firefox ESR installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 38.7. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities, the majority of which are remote code execution vulnerabilities. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these issues by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user.

Solution

Upgrade to Mozilla Firefox ESR version 38.7 or later.
