Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5264
The remote host has a web browser installed that is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.
The remote host is running a version of Mozilla Firefox earlier than 3.0.16 or 3.5.6. Such versions are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - Multiple crashes that could result in arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2009-65) - Multiple vulnerabilities in 'liboggplay' which could lead to arbitrary code execution. Note that this only affects the 3.5.x branch. (MFSA 2009-66) - An integer overflow in the 'Theora' video library which could lead to a crash or the execution of arbitrary code. Note that this only affects the 3.5.x branch. (MFSA 2009-67) - The NTML implementation is vulnerable to reflection attacks in which NTML credentials from one application could be forwarded to another application. (MFSA 2009-68) - Multiple location bar spoofing vulnerabilities. (MFSA 2009-69) - A content window which is opened by a chrome window retains a reference to the chrome window via the 'window.opener' property which could lead to a privilege escalation. (MFSA 2009-70) - The exception messages generated by the 'GeckoActiveXObject' differ based on whether or not the requested COM object's ProgID is present in the system registry. (MFSA 2009-71)
