Synopsis

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

Description

Versions of Firefox ESR 10.x prior to 10.0.3 are affected by the following security issues :

- Multiple memory corruption issues. By tricking a user into visiting a specially crafted page, these issues may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the affected application. (CVE-2012-0454, CVE-2012-0457, CVE-2012-0459, CVE-2012-0461, CVE-2012-0462, CVE-2012-0463, CVE-2012-0464)
- An HTTP Header security bypass vulnerability that can be leveraged by attackers to bypass certain security restrictions and conduct cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2012-0451)
- A security bypass vulnerability that can be exploited by an attacker if the victim can be tricked into setting a new home page by dragging a specially crafted link to the 'home' button URL, which will set the user's home page to a 'javascript:' URL. (CVE-2012-0458)
- An information disclosure vulnerability due to an out of bounds read in SVG filters. (CVE-2012-0456)
- A cross-site scripting vulnerability that can be triggered by dragging and dropping 'javascript:' links onto a frame. (CVE-2012-0455)
- 'window.fullScreen' is writeable by untrusted content, allowing attackers to perform UI spoofing attacks. (CVE-2012-0460)

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox ESR 10.0.3 or later.
