Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'firefox' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Affected Versions:
firefox on CentOS 6

Recommendations:
Please install the updated Linux Distribution Packages.

Technical Details:
Mozilla Firefox is an open source web browser. XULRunner provides the XUL Runtime environment for Mozilla Firefox. A web page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2012-1948, CVE-2012-1951, CVE-2012-1952, CVE-2012-1953, CVE-2012-1954, CVE-2012-1958, CVE-2012-1962, CVE-2012-1967) A malicious web page could bypass same-compartment security wrappers (SCSW) and execute arbitrary code with chrome privileges. (CVE-2012-1959) A flaw in the context menu functionality in Firefox could allow a malicious website to bypass intended restrictions and allow a cross-site scripting attack. (CVE-2012-1966) A page different to that in the address bar could be displayed when dragging and dropping to the address bar, possibly making it easier for a malicious site or user to perform a phishing attack. (CVE-2012-1950) A flaw in the way Firefox called history.forward and history.back could allow an attacker to conceal a malicious URL, possibly tricking a user into believing they are viewing a trusted site. (CVE-2012-1955) A flaw in a parser utility class used by Firefox to parse feeds (such as RSS) could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary JavaScript with the privileges of the user running Firefox. This issue could have affected other browser components or add-ons that assume the class returns sanitized input. (CVE-2012-1957) A flaw in the way Firefox handled X-Frame-Options headers could allow a malicious website to perform a clickjacking attack. (CVE-2012-1961) A flaw in the way Content Security Policy (CSP) reports were generated by Firefox could allow a malicious web page to steal a victim's OAuth 2.0 access tokens and OpenID credentials. (CVE-2012-1963) A flaw in the way Firefox handled certificate warnings could allow a man-in-the-middle attacker to create a crafted warning, possibly tricking a user into accepting an arbitrary certificate as trusted. (CVE-2012-1964) A flaw in the way Firefox handled feed:javascript URLs could allow output filtering to be bypassed, possibly leading to a cross-site scripting attack. (CVE-2012-1965) The nss update RHBA-2012:0337 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 introduced a mitigation for the CVE-2011-3389 flaw. For compatibility reasons, it remains disabled by default in the nss Linux Distribution Packages. This update makes Firefox enable the mitigation by default. It can be disabled by setting the NSS_SSL_CBC_RANDOM_IV environment variable to 0 before launching Firefox. ( ... Description truncated, please see the referenced URL(s) for more information.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
