Vulnerability Assessment Details
Check for the version of the MozillaFirefox package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2005:030 (MozillaFirefox).
This update upgrades Mozilla Firefox to version 1.0.4, fixing the
following security problems:
A problem in the install confirmation dialog together with a bad fix
for MFSA 2005-41 permited a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code
with the help of a cross site scripting problem on the Mozilla website.
The Mozilla website has been fixed so this is no real problem anymore.
attacker can inject script into the forward site. This site can be
controlled by the attacker permiting them to steal cookies or sensitive
data from that page or to perform actions on behalf of that user.
A variant of MFSA 2005-41 overrides properties on a non-DOM node and
then substitutes that object for one chrome script will access. Most
examples involved the attacker synthesizing an event targeted at a
non-DOM node, and overriding standard DOM node properties such as
type with references to eval() calls or Script() objects.
The MFSA-2005-43 and MFSA-2005-44 flaws also affect the Mozilla
Suite browsers. We are working on updates for those.
Updated packages were already released on May 20th. We wanted to
postpone the advisory until we have fixed packages for the Mozilla
Suite, but these will take some more time.
