Synopsis :

The remote host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch

Description :

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2006:021 (MozillaFirefox,mozilla).


A number of security issues have been fixed in the Mozilla browser
suite and the Mozilla Firefox browser.
These problems could be used by remote attackers to gain privileges,
gain access to confidential information or to cause denial of service
attacks.

The updates of the Firefox packages bring it up to Firefox 1.0.8 fix level.
The updates of the Mozilla suite bring it up to Mozilla 1.7.13 fix level.

Mozilla Thunderbird is also affected by some of the listed issues, but
updates will be provided later due to unrelated problems. Most of them
can be worked around by turning Java Script in Mails off (which is the
default for Thunderbird).

Full details of all issues can be found on:
http://www.mozilla.org/security/announce/
