Description

The version of Firefox installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 67.0.4. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the mfsa2019-19 advisory.

  • Insufficient vetting of parameters passed with the Prompt:Open IPC message between child and parent processes can result in the non-sandboxed parent process opening web content chosen by a compromised child process. When combined with additional vulnerabilities this could result in executing arbitrary code on the user
