Ubuntu 4.10 : mozilla-firefox vulnerabilities (USN-149-3)

High Nessus Plugin ID 20546

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description

USN-149-1 fixed some vulnerabilities in the Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog) version of Firefox. The version shipped with Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog) is also vulnerable to these flaws, so it needs to be upgraded as well. Please see

http://www.ubuntulinux.org/support/documentation/usn/usn-149-1

for the original advisory.

This update also fixes several older vulnerabilities; Some of them could be exploited to execute arbitrary code with full user privileges if the user visited a malicious website. (MFSA-2005-01 to MFSA-2005-44; please see the following website for details:
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/known-vulnerabilities.html)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
