Firefox Vulnerabilities?

I though it prudent to perform an online check of this system (Ubuntu 10.04)... especially as I'd recently upgraded everything from the old Karmic Koala 9.10 (It amazes me how quickly one new system with all the bells and whistles quickly becomes outdated and everyones screaming about a new version - sign of the times I guess, in six months time something else will emerge to condemn those shiny new ipads to the bit bucket. Anyhow I'm not exactly sure what these tests prove, portscans were all ok (apparently),   and the Browser scan results are below, quite what happens during the test I'm not sure but I am sure if there was a problem it would have shown  -  all  history and cookies are cleared - I guess it's a pass ? Browser Scan result:     * Passed  Mozilla crashes with evidence of memory corruption - passed     * Passed Internet Explorer bait & switch race condition - passed     * Passed Mozilla crashes with evidence of memory corruption - passed     * Passed Internet Explorer createTextRange arbitrary code execution - passed     * Passed Windows MDAC ADODB ActiveX control invalid length - passed     * Passed Adobe Flash Player video file parsing integer overflow - passed     * Passed XMLDOM substringData() heap overflow - passed     * Passed Mozilla crashes with evidence of memory corruption (rv:1.8.1.5) - passed     * Passed Opera JavaScript invalid pointer arbitrary code execution - passed     * Passed Apple QuickTime MOV file JVTCompEncodeFrame heap overflow - passed     * Passed Mozilla code execution via QuickTime Media-link files - passed     * Passed Mozilla crashes with evidence of memory corruption (rv:1.8.1.8) - passed     * Passed Mozilla memory corruption vulnerabilities (rv:1.8.1.10) - passed     * Passed Mozilla crashes with evidence of memory corruption (rv:1.8.1.12) - passed     * Passed Apple QuickTime 'QTPlugin.ocx' ActiveX Control Multiple Buffer Overflows - passed     * Passed Window location property cross-domain scripting - passed     * Passed Mozilla Firefox MathML integer overflow - passed     * Passed Internet Explorer XML nested SPAN elements memory corruption - passed        Apparently - No Browser vulnerabilities

  1. Hi Peter,

    Since a few weeks my Firefox browser crashes sometimes. Still Firefox is my favourite browser.

  2. Hello Paul
    Yes I do prefer Firefox also - it seems safer than IE versions - the browser wars continue though - congrats to Dutch success - I'm turning Orange now !
