Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-182 (firefox).

Mozilla Firefox is an open-source web browser, designed for standards
compliance, performance and portability.

Update Information:

It is recommended that all users update to Firefox 1.0.1.

Additionally, this update backports several fixes from rawhide.
This update enables pango font rendering by default.
This update enables smooth scrolling by default. On slower machines,
this may cause scrolling to lag. If this is the case for you, you may

This update also fixes the issue with downloads going to the user's
home directory instead of the desktop, as expected.
