Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : mozilla-firefox (MDKSA-2005:173)
Low Nessus Plugin ID 20427
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionNew updates are available for Mozilla Firefox :
A regression in the LE2005 Firefox package caused problems with cursor movement that has been fixed.
The run-mozilla.sh script, with debugging enabled, would allow local users to create or overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on temporary files (CVE-2005-2353).
nsScriptSecurityManager::GetBaseURIScheme didn't handle jar:view-source:... correctly because the jar: and view-source: cases didn't use recursion as they were supposed to. This was corrected in Firefox 1.0.4 and only affects the LE2005 package.
The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
