Description

Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 13.0 and Firefox ESR 10.x before 10.0.6 do not have the same context-menu restrictions for data: URLs as for javascript: URLs, which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via a crafted URL.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-esr-upgrade-10_0_6
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-14_0

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.
