Description

Firefox before 1.0.3, Mozilla Suite before 1.7.7, and Netscape 7.2 allows remote attackers to replace existing search plugins with malicious ones using sidebar.addSearchEngine and the same filename as the target engine, which may not be displayed in the GUI, which could then be used to execute malicious script, aka "Firesearching 2."

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-1_0_3
  • 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.
