Mozilla Browser HTTP/HTTPS Redirection Weakness (deprecated)

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 1319

Synopsis

The remote client allows malicious websites to redirect to non-secure sites without warning.

Description

The remote host is running a version of the Mozilla browser that may not sufficiently provide users with warning information when being redirected from secure sites to other secure sites via non-secure sites. This may give users a false sense of security when browsing the Internet.

Solution

Upgrade to the latest version of Mozilla.
