medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5115
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 3.0.13/3.5.2. Such versions are reportedly affected by multiple memory corruption vulnerabilities. An attacker could exploit one of these issues to corrupt memory on the affected host and potentially run arbitrary code in the context of the user running the affected application.

Solution

Upgrade to Mozilla Firefox 3.5.2/3.0.12 or later.
