This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Security issues were identified and fixed in firefox 3.5.x :

The nsObserverList::FillObserverArray function in
xpcom/ds/nsObserverList.cpp in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.7 allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via
a crafted website that triggers memory consumption and an accompanying
Low Memory alert dialog, and also triggers attempted removal of an
observer from an empty observers array (CVE-2010-0220).

Additionally, some packages which require so, have been rebuilt and
are being provided as updates.
