Mozilla Firefox < 3.0.7 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium

Synopsis

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

Description

Versions of Firefox prior to 3.0.7 are affected by the following security issues :

- By exploiting stability bugs in the browser engine, it might be possible for an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote system under certain conditions. (MFSA 2009-07) - A vulnerability in Mozilla's garbage collection process could be exploited to run arbitrary code on the remote system. (MFSA 2009-08) - It may be possible for a website to read arbitrary XML data from another domain by using 'nsIRDFService' and a cross-domain redirect. (MFSA 2009-09) - Vulnerabilities in the PNG libraries used by Mozilla could be exploited to execute arbitrary code on the remote system. (MFSA 2009-10) - Certain invisible characters are decoded before being displayed on the location bar. An attacker may be able to exploit this flaw to spoof the location bar and display a link to a malicious URL. (MFSA 2009-11).

Solution

Upgrade to Firefox 3.0.7 or higher.
