Javascript code in such a way that could cause Firefox to crash or execute
arbitrary code as the user running Firefox. (CVE-2006-6498, CVE-2006-6501,
CVE-2006-6502, CVE-2006-6503, CVE-2006-6504)

Several flaws were found in the way Firefox renders web pages. A malicious
web page could cause the browser to crash or possibly execute arbitrary

Users of Firefox are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages, which
contain Firefox version 1.5.0.9 that corrects these issues.
