Description

Certain versions of Mozilla Firefox ship with a fast history mechanism that causes some windows to become translucent. A malicious web page could be constructed to take advantage of this to cause the user to unknowingly interact with an invisible window and execute arbitrary code under the privileges of the browser process.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-1_5_0_2
  • 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.
