Mozilla Firefox < 3.0.13/3.5.0 Multiple Vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5113
SynopsisThe remote host has a web browser installed that is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.
DescriptionThe installed version of Firefox is earlier than 3.0.13/3.5.0. Such versions are reportedly potentially affected by the following security issues :
- The browser can be fooled into trusting a malicious SSL server certificate with a null character in the host name. (MFSA 2009-42)
- A heap overflow in the code that handles regular expressions in certificate names can lead to arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2009-43)
SolutionUpgrade to Firefox 3.5.0/3.0.13 or later.
