RHEL 2.1 / 3 / 4 : mozilla (RHSA-2006:0199)
High Nessus Plugin ID 20857
SynopsisThe remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionUpdated mozilla packages that fix several security bugs are now available.
This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.
Mozilla is an open source Web browser, advanced email and newsgroup client, IRC chat client, and HTML editor.
A denial of service bug was found in the way Mozilla saves history information. If a user visits a web page with a very long title, it is possible Mozilla will crash or take a very long time the next time it is run. (CVE-2005-4134)
Note that the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 packages also fix a bug when using XSLT to transform documents. Passing DOM Nodes as parameters to functions expecting an xsl:param could cause Mozilla to throw an exception.
Users of Mozilla are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
