Description

Certain versions of Mozilla Firefox contain a flaw in the code that creates new Function objects. As a result, a malicious website operator can potentially take advantage of this to execute arbitrary code under the privileges of the browser process.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-1_5_0_5
  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-latest

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.
