Mozilla Firefox 3.6.x < 3.6.2 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5485


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 3.6.x prior to 3.6.2. Such versions are potentially affected by multiple security issues :

- The WOFF decoder contains an integer overflow in a font decrompression routine. (MFSA 2010-08)
- Deleted image frames are reused when handling 'multipart/x-mixed-replace' images. (MFSA 2010-09)
- The 'window.location' object is made a normal overridable object. (MFSA 2010-10)
- Multiple crashes can result in arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2010-11)
- A cross-site scripting issue when using 'addEventListener' and 'setTimeout' on a wrapped object. (MFSA 2010-12)
- Documents fail to call certain security checks when attempting to preload images. (MFSA 2010-13)
- It is possible to corrupt a user's XUL cache. (MFSA 2010-14)
- The asynchronous Authorization Prompt is not always attached to the correct window. (MFSA 2010-15)
- Multiple crashes cna result in arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2010-16)
- An error exists in the way '&lt;option&gt;' elements are inserted into a XUL tree '&lt;optgroup&gt;'. (MFSA 2010-18)
- An error exists in the implementation of the 'windows.navigator.plugins' object. (MFSA 2010-19)
- A browser applet can be used to turn a simple mouse click into a drag-and-drop action, potentially resulting in the unintended loading of resources in a user's browser. (MFSA 2010-20)
- Session renegotiations are not handled properly, which can be exploited to insert arbitrary plaintext by a man-in-the-middle. (MFSA 2010-22)
- When an image points to a resource that redirects to a 'mailto: ' URL, the external mail handler application is launched. (MFSA 2010-23)
- XML documents fail to call certain security checks when loading new content. (MFSA 2010-24)
