Mozilla Firefox < 1.0.0 IMG Tag Multiple Vulnerabilities (deprecated)

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is missing a critical security patch or upgrade.

Description

The remote host is using Firefox. The remote version of this software contains a security issue that may allow an attacker to determine existence of local files, cause a DoS and steal passwords (Windows only). The security vulnerability is due to the fact that Firefox does not handle correctly <IMG> tags.

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox 1.0.0 or higher.
