The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.
Updated Mozilla packages that fix various bugs and security issues in
previous versions of Mozilla are now available.
Mozilla is an open source Web browser.
A heap-based buffer overflow in Netscape and Mozilla allows remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code via a jar: URL that references a
malformed .jar file, which overflows a buffer during decompression.
These errata packages upgrade Mozilla to version 1.0.2, which is not
vulnerable to this issue. Mozilla 1.0.2 also contains a number of
other stability and security updates.
