Mozilla onkeypress Function XPI Installation Weakness (deprecated)

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host may be tricked into running an executable file.

Description

The remote host is running a version of the Mozilla browser that contains an improper implementation of the onekeypress function for the space bar. As such, it may be possible to use a single keypress for multiple conformation, potentially allowing for the confirmation of a malicious XPI to be installed into the client.

Solution

Upgrade to the latest version of Mozilla.
