Mozilla Firefox < 7.0 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 6028

Synopsis

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

Description

Versions of Firefox prior to 7.0 are affected by the following security issues :

- If an attacker could trick a user into holding down the 'Enter' key, via a malicious game, for example, a malicious application or extension could be downloaded and executed. (CVE-2011-2372)
- Unspecified errors exist that can be exploited to corrupt memory. No additional information is available at this time. (CVE-2011-2995, CVE-2011-2997)
- A weakness exists when handling the 'Location' header. This can lead to response splitting attacks when visiting a vulnerable web server. The same fix has been applied to the headers 'Content-Length' and 'Content-Disposition'. (CVE-2011-3000)
- An error exists within WebGL's ANGLE library. It does not properly check for return values from the 'GrowAtomTable()' function. This vulnerability can be exploited to cause a buffer overflow by sending a series of requests. Additionally, an unspecified error exists within WebGL that can be exploited to corrupt memory. (CVE-2011-3002, CVE-2011-3003)
- There is an error within the JSSubScriptLoader that incorrectly unwraps 'XPCNativeWrappers'. By tricking a user into installing a malicious plug-in, an attacker could exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2011-3004)
- A use-after-free error exists when parsing OGG headers. (CVE-2011-3005)
- There is an unspecified error within the YARR regular expression library that can be exploited to corrupt memory. (CVE-2011-3232)

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox 7.0 or later.
