Vulnerability Assessment Details

Firefox Cache File

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Acertains the version of Firefox

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is using Firefox, an alternative web browser.

The remote version of this software contains a security issue which may
permit a possible hacker to execute arbitrary code on this host.

The security vulnerability is due to the fact that Firefox stores cached
HTML documents with a known file name, and to the fact that it's possible
to force Firefox to open cached files as HTML documents by appending
a NULL byte after the file name.

A possible hacker may combine these two flaws to execute arbitrary code on the
remote host.

Solution : Upgrade to Firefox 0.9.2
Network Security Threat Level: High

Networks Security ID: 10709
