New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote host has a web browser installed that is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

Versions of Mozilla Firefox prior to 1.0.7 are known to contain various security issues, several of which are critical as they can be easily exploited to execute arbitrary shell code on the remote host.

Solution

Upgrade to version 1.0.7 or higher.
