    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201605-06 (Mozilla Products: Multiple vulnerabilities) Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Firefox, NSS, NSPR, and Thunderbird. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details. Impact : A remote attacker could entice a user to view a specially crafted web page or email, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code or a Denial of Service condition. Furthermore, a remote attacker may be able to perform Man-in-the-Middle attacks, obtain sensitive information, spoof the address bar, conduct clickjacking attacks, bypass security restrictions and protection mechanisms, or have other unspecified impacts. Workaround : There is no known workaround at this time.

    description The version of Firefox installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 45. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities, the majority of which are remote code execution vulnerabilities. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these issues by convincing a user to visit a specially crafted website, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the current user.
