Mozilla Firefox < Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 4151


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


The installed version of Firefox allows unescaped URIs to be passed to external programs, may lead to execution of arbitrary code on the affected host subject to the user's privileges, and could also allow privilege escalation attacks against addons that create 'about:blank' windows and populate them in certain ways.


Upgrade to version or higher.
