Mozilla Firefox < 3.0.13/3.5.0 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5113

Synopsis

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

Description

The 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)

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox 3.5.0/3.0.13 or later.
