Description

The form autocomplete feature in Mozilla Firefox 1.5.x before 1.5.0.12, 2.x before 2.0.0.4, and possibly earlier versions, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (persistent temporary CPU consumption) via a large number of characters in a submitted form.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-1_5_0_12
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-2_0_0_4

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.
