Description

The installation confirmation dialog in Firefox before 1.0.1, Thunderbird before 1.0.1, and Mozilla before 1.7.6 allows remote attackers to use InstallTrigger to spoof the hostname of the host performing the installation via a long "user:pass" sequence in the URL, which appears before the real hostname.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-1_0_1
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-latest

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
