Mozilla Firefox 3.6.x < 3.6.2 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium

Synopsis

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

Description

The remote host is running a version of Mozilla Firefox 3.6.x prior to 3.6.2. Such versions are potentially affected by multiple security issues :

- The WOFF decoder contains an integer overflow in a font decrompression routine. (MFSA 2010-08) - Deleted image frames are reused when handling 'multipart/x-mixed-replace' images. (MFSA 2010-09) - The 'window.location' object is made a normal overridable object. (MFSA 2010-10) - Multiple crashes can result in arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2010-11) - A cross-site scripting issue when using 'addEventListener' and 'setTimeout' on a wrapped object. (MFSA 2010-12) - Documents fail to call certain security checks when attempting to preload images. (MFSA 2010-13) - It is possible to corrupt a user's XUL cache. (MFSA 2010-14) - The asynchronous Authorization Prompt is not always attached to the correct window. (MFSA 2010-15) - Multiple crashes cna result in arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2010-16) - An error exists in the way '<option>' elements are inserted into a XUL tree '<optgroup>'. (MFSA 2010-18) - An error exists in the implementation of the 'windows.navigator.plugins' object. (MFSA 2010-19) - A browser applet can be used to turn a simple mouse click into a drag-and-drop action, potentially resulting in the unintended loading of resources in a user's browser. (MFSA 2010-20) - Session renegotiations are not handled properly, which can be exploited to insert arbitrary plaintext by a man-in-the-middle. (MFSA 2010-22) - When an image points to a resource that redirects to a 'mailto: ' URL, the external mail handler application is launched. (MFSA 2010-23) - XML documents fail to call certain security checks when loading new content. (MFSA 2010-24)
