Description

The Web Worker functionality in Mozilla Firefox 3.0.x before 3.0.18 and 3.5.x before 3.5.8, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.3, does not properly handle array data types for posted messages, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors.

Solution(s)

  • ubuntu-upgrade-firefox-3-5
  • ubuntu-upgrade-xulrunner-1-9-1

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.
