Description

Certain versions of Mozilla Firefox mishandle the use of reference counters for CSS objects. This could allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a large number of references to a common CSS object.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-2_0_0_16
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-3_0_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.
