Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : mozilla-firefox (MDKSA-2007:050-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

A number of security vulnerabilities have been discovered and
corrected in the latest Mozilla Firefox program, version 1.5.0.10.

This update provides the latest Firefox to correct these issues.

Update :

A regression was found in the latest Firefox packages provided where
changes to library paths caused applications that depended on the NSS
libraries (such as Thunderbird and Evolution) to fail to start or fail
to load certain SSL-related security components. These new packages
correct that problem and we apologize for any inconvenience the
previous update may have caused.
