Description

nspluginwrapper before 1.4.4 does not properly provide access to NPNVprivateModeBool variable settings, which could prevent Firefox plugins from determining if they should run in Private Browsing mode and allow remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions, as demonstrated using Flash.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-nspluginwrapper

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.
