[GLSA-200612-07] Mozilla Firefox: Multiple vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Mozilla Firefox: Multiple vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200612-07
(Mozilla Firefox: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Mozilla Firefox improperly handles Script objects while they are being
executed. Mozilla Firefox has also been found to be vulnerable to
various possible buffer overflows. Lastly, the binary release of
Mozilla Firefox is vulnerable to a low exponent RSA signature forgery
issue because it is bundled with a vulnerable version of NSS.


A possible hacker could entice a user to view specially crafted JavaScript
and execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user running Mozilla
Firefox. A possible hacker could also entice a user to view a specially
crafted web page that causes a buffer overflow and again executes
arbitrary code. It is also possible for a possible hacker to make up SSL/TLS
certificates that would not be detected as invalid by the binary
release of Mozilla Firefox, raising the possibility for
Man-in-the-Middle attacks.


There is no known workaround at this time.


All Mozilla Firefox users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-client/mozilla-firefox-"
All Mozilla Firefox binary release users should upgrade to the latest
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-client/mozilla-firefox-bin-"

Threat Level: Medium
