Mozilla Firefox < 2.0.0.12 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 4365

Synopsis

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

Description

The installed version of Firefox is affected by various security issues :

- Several stability bugs leading to crashes that, in some cases, show traces of memory corruption
- Several file input focus stealing vulnerabilities that could result in uploading of arbitrary files provided their full path and file names are known.
- Several issues that allow scripts from page content to escape from their sandboxed context and/or run with chrome privileges, resulting in privilege escalation, XSS and/or remote code execution.
- An issue that could allow a malicious site to inject newlines into the application's password store when a user saves his password, resulting in corruption of saved passwords for other sites.
- A directory traversal vulnerability via the 'chrome:' URI.
- A vulnerability involving 'designMode' frames that may result in web browsing history and forward navigation stealing.
- A file action dialog tampering vulnerability involving timer-enabled security dialogs.
- Mis-handling of locally-saved plain text files.
- Possible disclosure of sensitive URL parameters, such as session tokens, via the .href property of stylesheet DOM nodes reflecting the final URI of the stylesheet after following any 302 redirects.
- A failure to display a web forgery warning dialog in cases where the entire contents of a page are enclosed in a '&lt;div&gt;' tag with absolute positioning.

Solution

Upgrade to version 2.0.0.12 or higher.
