Mozilla Firefox < 1.0.8 / 1.5.x < 1.5.0.2 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3512
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

Versions of Mozilla Firefox prior to 1.5.0.2 or 1.0.8 are affected by various security issues, several of which are critical as they can be easily exploited to execute arbitrary shell code on the remote host. The version of Firefox is vulnerable to multiple denial of service attacks, overflows, information disclosure, privilege escalation, and other issues. An attacker exploiting these flaws would need to be able to convince a Firefox user to browse to a malicious URI.

Solution

Upgrade to version 1.5.0.2, 1.0.8 or higher.
