Mozilla FTP View URL Title Tag XSS (deprecated)

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack.

When viewing the contents of a FTP site as web content from a ftp:// URL, the directory name is included in the HTML representation. It is not adequately sanetized before this occurs. An attacker may embed javascript as this value between opening and closing "<title>" tags in a FTP URLL

Solution

Upgrade to the latest version of Mozilla or disable Javascript.
