Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

A number of vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Mozilla
Firefox browser that could allow a remote attacker to craft malicious
web pages that could take advantage of these issues to execute
arbitrary code with elevated privileges, spoof content, and steal
local files, cookies, or other information from web pages. As well,
some of these vulnerabilities can be exploited to execute arbitrary
code with the privileges of the user running the browser.

As well, two crasher bugs have been fixed as well.

The updated packages have been patched to fix these problems.
