Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

Several bugs were found in the way Firefox processes malformed
JavaScript. A malicious web page could modify the content of a
different open web page, possibly stealing sensitive information or
conducting a cross-site scripting attack. (CVE-2006-1731,
CVE-2006-1732, CVE-2006-1741)

Several bugs were found in the way Firefox processes certain
JavaScript actions. A malicious web page could execute arbitrary
JavaScript instructions with the permissions of 'chrome', allowing the
page to steal sensitive information or install browser malware.
(CVE-2006-1727, CVE-2006-1728, CVE-2006-1733, CVE-2006-1734,
CVE-2006-1735, CVE-2006-1742)

Several bugs were found in the way Firefox processes malformed web
pages. A carefully crafted malicious web page could cause the
execution of arbitrary code as the user running Firefox.
(CVE-2006-0749, CVE-2006-1724, CVE-2006-1730, CVE-2006-1737,
CVE-2006-1738, CVE-2006-1739, CVE-2006-1790)

A bug was found in the way Firefox displays the secure site icon. If a
browser is configured to display the non-default secure site modal
warning dialog, it may be possible to trick a user into believing they
are viewing a secure site. (CVE-2006-1740)

A bug was found in the way Firefox allows JavaScript mutation events
on 'input' form elements. A malicious web page could be created in
such a way that when a user submits a form, an arbitrary file could be
uploaded to the attacker. (CVE-2006-1729)

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.
