Mozilla Firefox 10.x < 10.0.1 Memory Corruption
High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 6324
SynopsisThe remote host has a web browser installed that is affected by a memory corruption vulnerability.
DescriptionVersions of Firefox 10.x prior to 10.0.1 are affected by a memory corruption vulnerability. A use-after-free error exists in the method 'nxXBLDocumentInfo::ReadPrototypeBindings' and XBL bindings are not properly removed from a hash table in the event of failure. Clean up processes may then attempt to use this data and cause application crashes. These application crashes are potentially exploitable.
SolutionUpgrade to Firefox 10.0.1 or later.
