Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : mozilla-firefox (MDKSA-2005:173)

This script is Copyright (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

New updates are available for Mozilla Firefox :

A regression in the LE2005 Firefox package caused problems with cursor
movement that has been fixed.

The script, with debugging enabled, would allow local
users to create or overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on
temporary files (CVE-2005-2353).

nsScriptSecurityManager::GetBaseURIScheme didn't handle
jar:view-source:... correctly because the jar: and view-source: cases
didn't use recursion as they were supposed to. This was corrected in
Firefox 1.0.4 and only affects the LE2005 package.

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Low / CVSS Base Score : 2.1
