Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


An updated mozilla package that fixes a security bug is now available.

This update has been rated as having critical 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.

A bug was found in the way Mozilla processes certain international domain
names. A possible hacker could create a specially crafted HTML file, which when
viewed by the victim would cause Mozilla to crash or possibly execute
arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-2871 to this issue.

Users of Mozilla are advised to upgrade to this updated package that
contains a backported patch and is not vulnerable to this issue.
