Description

Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.14 does not properly implement certain dialogs associated with the (1) pkcs11.addmodule and (2) pkcs11.deletemodule operations, which makes it easier for remote attackers to trick a user into installing or removing an arbitrary PKCS11 module.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-3_0_14
