Fedora Core 4 : firefox-1.0.7-1.2.fc4 (2006-076)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser.

Igor Bukanov discovered a bug in the way Firefox's JavaScript
interpreter dereferences objects. If a user visits a malicious web
page, Firefox could crash or execute arbitrary code as the user
running Firefox. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
assigned the name CVE-2006-0292 to this issue.

moz_bug_r_a4 discovered a bug in Firefox's XULDocument.persist()
function. A malicious web page could inject arbitrary RDF data into a
user's localstore.rdf file, which can cause Firefox to execute
arbitrary JavaScript when a user runs Firefox. (CVE-2006-0296)

A denial of service bug was found in the way Firefox saves history
information. If a user visits a web page with a very long title, it is
possible Firefox will crash or take a very long time to start the next
time it is run. (CVE-2005-4134)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
