Vulnerability Assessment Summary

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


An updated firefox package that fixes several security bugs is now
available.

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

Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser.

Igor Bukanov discovered a bug in the way Firefox's Javascript interpreter
derefernces objects. If a user visits a malicious web page, Firefox could
crash or execute arbitrary code as the user running Firefox. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name CVE-2006-0292 to
this issue.

moz_bug_r_a4 discovered a bug in Firefox's XULDocument.persist() function.
A malicious web page could inject arbitrary RDF data into a user's
localstore.rdf file, which can cause Firefox to execute arbitrary
javascript when a user runs Firefox. (CVE-2006-0296)

A denial of service bug was found in the way Firefox saves history
information. If a user visits a web page with a very long title, it is
possible Firefox will crash or take a very long time the next time it is
run. (CVE-2005-4134)

This update also fixes a bug when using XSLT to transform documents.
Passing DOM Nodes as parameters to functions expecting an xsl:param could
cause Firefox to throw an exception.

Users of Firefox are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
contains backported patches to correct these issues.
