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 host may be tricked into running an executable file.

Description

The remote host is using a vulnerable version of Mozilla, an open-source web browser. It is reported that Mozilla versions prior 1.7.1 present an issue in the INPUT tag. An attacker may craft a malicious web page that may secretly upload files readable by the victim on a remote computer.

Solution

Upgrade or patch according to vendor recommendations.
