The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.
Updated firefox packages that fix several security issues are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5.
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.
A cross-site scripting flaw was found in the way Firefox handled the
jar: URI scheme. It was possible for a malicious website to leverage
this flaw and conduct a cross-site scripting attack against a user
running Firefox. (CVE-2007-5947)
Several flaws were found in the way Firefox processed certain
malformed web content. A webpage containing malicious content could
cause Firefox to crash, or potentially execute arbitrary code as the
user running Firefox. (CVE-2007-5959)
A race condition existed when Firefox set the 'window.location'
property for a webpage. This flaw could allow a webpage to set an
arbitrary Referer header, which may lead to a Cross-site Request
Forgery (CSRF) attack against websites that rely only on the Referer
header for protection. (CVE-2007-5960)
Users of Firefox are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain backported patches to resolve these issues.
