Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated mozilla packages that fix various security bugs are now available.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

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

Several bugs were found in the way Mozilla executes javascript code.
Javascript executed from a web page should run with a restricted access
level, preventing dangerous actions. It is possible that a malicious web
page could execute javascript code with elevated rights, permiting
access to protected data and functions. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2005-1476,
CVE-2005-1477, CVE-2005-1531, and CVE-2005-1532 to these issues.

Users of Mozilla are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
contains Mozilla version 1.7.8 to correct these issues.
