Description

Firefox before 1.0.4 and Mozilla Suite before 1.7.8 does not properly implement certain security checks for script injection, which allows remote attackers to execute script via "Wrapped" javascript: URLs, as demonstrated using (1) a javascript: URL in a view-source: URL, (2) a javascript: URL in a jar: URL, or (3) "a nested variant."

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-1_0_4
  • 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.
