Synopsis

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Previous updates to Firefox were patch fixes to Firefox 1.0.6 that brought it in sync with 1.0.8 in terms of security fixes. In this update, Mozilla Firefox 1.5.0.6 is being provided which corrects a number of vulnerabilities that were previously unpatched, as well as providing new and enhanced features.

The following CVE names have been corrected with this update:
CVE-2006-2613, CVE-2006-2894, CVE-2006-2775, CVE-2006-2776, CVE-2006-2777, CVE-2006-2778, CVE-2006-2779, CVE-2006-2780, CVE-2006-2782, CVE-2006-2783, CVE-2006-2784, CVE-2006-2785, CVE-2006-2786, CVE-2006-2787, CVE-2006-2788, CVE-2006-3677, CVE-2006-3803, CVE-2006-3804, CVE-2006-3806, CVE-2006-3807, CVE-2006-3113, CVE-2006-3801, CVE-2006-3802, CVE-2006-3805, CVE-2006-3808, CVE-2006-3809, CVE-2006-3810, CVE-2006-3811, CVE-2006-3812.

Update the affected packages.
