Affected Versions:

Technical Details:
The flaws are due to: - An error in the 'DOM' attribute cloning routine where under certain circumstances an event attribute node can be deleted while another object still contains a reference to it. - An error in Mozilla's implementation of NodeIterator in which a malicious NodeFilter could be created which would detach nodes from the DOM tree while it was being traversed. - An error in the code used to store the names and values of plugin parameter elements. A malicious page could embed plugin content containing a very large number of parameter elements which would cause an overflow in the integer value counting them. - An error in handling of location bar could be spoofed to look like a secure page when the current document was served via plain text. - Spoofing method does not require that the resource opened in a new window respond with 204, as long as the opener calls window.stop() before the document is loaded. - Spoofing error occurs when opening a new window containing a resource that responds with an HTTP 204 (no content) and then using the reference to the new window to insert HTML content into the blank document.

The host is installed with Mozilla Firefox/Seamonkey that are prone to multiple vulnerabilities.

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".
