Fedora Core 5 : firefox- (2006-547)

High Nessus Plugin ID 24104


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


A bug was found in the way Firefox handles iframe.contentWindow.focus() calls. A malicious web page could potentially execute arbitrary code as the user running firefox.

Users of Firefox are advised to update to this package, which contains a version of Firefox not vulnerable to this issue.

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


Update the affected firefox and / or firefox-debuginfo packages.
