Description

The version of Firefox installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 69.0.1. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerability as referenced in the mfsa2019-31 advisory:

  • When the pointer lock is enabled by a website though requestPointerLock(), no user notification is given. This could allow a malicious website to hijack the mouse pointer and confuse users.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
