Description

Certain versions of Mozilla Firefox allow a website operator to add malformed HTTP headers to an XMLHttpRequest. As a result, the operator can attempt to exploit server flaws from the user's machine or smuggle HTTP requests.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-firefox-upgrade-1_0_7
  • 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.
