Scientific Linux Security Update : firefox on SL4.x i386/x86_64

Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

Mozilla Firefox is an open source web browser.

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way Firefox handled
PNG (Portable Network Graphics) images. A web page containing a
malicious PNG image could cause Firefox to crash or, possibly, execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox.

All Firefox users should upgrade to this updated package, which
corrects this issue. After installing the update, Firefox must be
restarted for the changes to take effect.
