RHSA-2006-0328: firefox

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the firefox packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated firefox packages that fix several security bugs are 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.

Several bugs were found in the way Firefox processes malformed javascript.
A malicious web page could modify the content of a different open web page,
possibly stealing sensitive information or conducting a cross-site
scripting attack. (CVE-2006-1731, CVE-2006-1732, CVE-2006-1741)

Several bugs were found in the way Firefox processes certain javascript
actions. A malicious web page could execute arbitrary javascript
instructions with the permissions of "chrome", permiting the page to steal
sensitive information or install browser malware. (CVE-2006-1727,
CVE-2006-1728, CVE-2006-1733, CVE-2006-1734, CVE-2006-1735, CVE-2006-1742)

Several bugs were found in the way Firefox processes malformed web pages.
A carefully crafted malicious web page could cause the execution of
arbitrary code as the user running Firefox. (CVE-2006-0749, CVE-2006-1724,
CVE-2006-1730, CVE-2006-1737, CVE-2006-1738, CVE-2006-1739)

A bug was found in the way Firefox displays the secure site icon. If a
browser is configured to display the non-default secure site modal warning
dialog, it may be possible to trick a user into believing they are viewing
a secure site. (CVE-2006-1740)

A bug was found in the way Firefox permits javascript mutation events on
"input" form elements. A malicious web page could be created in such a way
that when a user submits a form, an arbitrary file could be uploaded to the
attacker. (CVE-2006-1729)

Users of Firefox are advised to upgrade to these updated packages
containing Firefox version 1.0.8 which corrects these issues.
