Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated mozilla packages that fix a buffer overflow issue are now available.

Mozilla is an open source Web browser, advanced email and newsgroup client,
IRC chat client, and HTML editor.

iSEC Security Research has discovered a buffer overflow bug in the way
Mozilla handles NNTP URLs. If a user visits a malicious web page or is
convinced to click on a malicious link, it may be possible for a possible hacker
to execute arbitrary code on the victim's machine. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CVE-2004-1316 to this issue.

Users of Mozilla should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches and are not vulnerable to these issues.
