Debian DSA-775-1 : mozilla-firefox - frame injection spoofing

High Nessus Plugin ID 19431

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

A vulnerability has been discovered in Mozilla and Mozilla Firefox that allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary JavaScript from one page into the frameset of another site. Thunderbird is not affected by this and Galeon will be automatically fixed as it uses Mozilla components.

Solution

Upgrade the mozilla-firefox package.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain Mozilla Firefox packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in version 1.0.4-2sarge1.
