Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the firefox package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-246 (firefox).

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

Update Information:

A buffer overflow bug was found in the way Firefox processes GIF
images. It is possible for a possible hacker to create a specially crafted
GIF image, which when viewed by a victim will execute arbitrary code
as the victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0399 to this issue.
A bug was found in the way Firefox processes XUL content. If a
malicious
web page can trick a user into dragging an object, it is possible to
load malicious XUL content. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0401 to this
issue.
A bug was found in the way Firefox bookmarks content to the sidebar.
If a user can be tricked into bookmarking a malicious web page into
the sidebar panel, that page could execute arbitrary programs. The
Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the
name CVE-2005-0402 to this issue.
Users of Firefox are advised to upgrade to this updated package which
contains Firefox version 1.0.2 and is not vulnerable to these issues.

Additionally, there was a bug found in the way Firefox rendered some
fonts, notably the Tahoma font while italicized. This issue has been
filed as Bug 150041 (bugzilla.redhat.com). This updated package
contains a fix for this issue.
