Description

Mozilla Firefox before 1.8.0.13 and 1.8.1.x before 1.8.1.5 does not perform a security zone check when processing a wyciwyg URI, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information, poison the browser cache, and possibly enable further attack vectors via (1) HTTP 302 redirect controls, (2) XMLHttpRequest, or (3) view-source URIs.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-2_0_0_5

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.
