Mozilla Firefox < 1.7.13 Multiple Vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3514
SynopsisThe remote host has a web browser installed that is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.
DescriptionVersions of Mozilla Firefox prior to 1.7.13 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. Additionally, these versions are affected by 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 Mozilla user to browse to a malicious URI.
SolutionUpgrade to version 1.7.13 or later.
