Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200503-31 (Mozilla Firefox: Multiple vulnerabilities)

The following vulnerabilities were found and fixed in Mozilla     Firefox:
Mark Dowd from ISS X-Force reported an     exploitable heap overrun in the GIF processing of obsolete Netscape     extension 2 (CAN-2005-0399)     Kohei Yoshino discovered that a     page bookmarked as a sidebar could bypass privileges control     (CAN-2005-0402)     Michael Krax reported a new way to bypass XUL     security restrictions through drag-and-drop of items like scrollbars     (CAN-2005-0401)   Impact :

The GIF heap overflow could be triggered by a malicious GIF     image that would end up executing arbitrary code with the rights of the     user running Firefox     By tricking the user into bookmarking a     malicious page as a Sidebar, a remote attacker could potentially     execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user running the     browser     By setting up a malicious website and convincing users     to obey very specific drag-and-drop instructions, attackers may     leverage drag-and-drop features to bypass XUL security restrictions,     which could be used as a stepping stone to exploit other     vulnerabilities   Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
