Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : firefox (MDVSA-2010:147)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

Security issues were identified and fixed in firefox :

layout/generic/nsObjectFrame.cpp in Mozilla Firefox 3.6.7 does not
properly free memory in the parameter array of a plugin instance,
which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory
corruption) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted HTML
document, related to the DATA and SRC attributes of an OBJECT element.
NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incorrect fix for
CVE-2010-1214 (CVE-2010-2755).

Packages for 2008.0 and 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended
Maintenance Program. Please visit this link to learn more:

Additionally, some packages which require so, have been rebuilt and
are being provided as updates. The python packages contained a small
dependency problem on 2008.0/2009.0/MES5 that is addressed as well
with this advisory.
