[GLSA-200503-30] Mozilla Suite: Multiple vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Mozilla Suite: Multiple vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200503-30
(Mozilla Suite: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Impact

The GIF heap overflow could be triggered by a malicious GIF
image that would end up executing arbitrary code with the rights of the
user running Mozilla. The other overflow issues, while not thought to
be exploitable, would have the same impact
By setting up
malicious websites and convincing users to follow untrusted links or
obey very specific drag-and-drop or download instructions, attackers
may leverage the various spoofing issues to fake other websites to get
access to confidential information, push users to download malicious
files or make them interact with their browser preferences
The
temporary directory issue permits local attackers to overwrite arbitrary
files with the rights of another local user

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
