Description

Firefox 1.0 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via plugins that load "privileged content" into frames, as demonstrated using certain XUL events when a user drags a scrollbar two times, aka "Firescrolling."

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.
