Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser.

Several flaws were found in the way Firefox processes certain
malformed JavaScript code. A malicious web page could cause the
execution of JavaScript code in such a way that could cause Firefox to
crash or execute arbitrary code as the user running Firefox.
(CVE-2006-5463, CVE-2006-5747, CVE-2006-5748)

Several flaws were found in the way Firefox renders web pages. A
malicious web page could cause the browser to crash or possibly
execute arbitrary code as the user running Firefox. (CVE-2006-5464)

Users of Firefox are advised to upgrade to this update, which contains
Firefox version 1.5.0.8 that corrects these issues.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
