Mozilla Firefox < 1.0.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 2652
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 has a web browser installed that is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

The remote host is using Firefox. The remote version of this software contains the following security flaws:
1) There is a flaw in the way that the browser handle scripting within 'tabbed' cross-domains. An attacker exploiting this flaw would need to be able to coerce a user into clicking on a malicious URL which would then open a separate 'TAB' within the browser. The attacker could then retrieve data relevant to other tabbed connections or execute code locally.
2)There is a flaw in the default about: config script that would allow an attacker to modify configuration data. In order to execute such an attack, the attacker would need to be able to entice the user into visiting or clicking on a malicious URL. A successful attacker would be able to modify the local configuration file, resulting in enhanced access rights or other potential exploits.

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox 1.0.1 or higher.
