Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8101

Synopsis

The remote mobile host was detected using an outdated version of Mozilla Firefox.

Description

Older versions of Mozilla Firefox contain multiple unspecified vulnerabilities that have since been fixed by the vendor. Versions of Firefox for Android older than 27.0 contain the following two vulnerabilities:

- Unauthorized information disclosure via profile path leaks to the Android system log, which is readable from other applications. (CVE-2014-1484)

- Issues related to differences in how JavaScript engines deal with native getters on the 'window' object. This can lead to a potential security check bypass issue. (CVE-2014-1481)
