Mozilla Firefox < 26.0 Multiple Vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8070
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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

- Miscellaneous memory safety hazards (CVE-2013-5609, CVE-2013-5610)
- Application Installation doorhanger does not get properly dismissed, which can be leveraged to trick a user into installing an application from one site while thinking it originated from another (CVE-2013-5611)
