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


A number of security vulnerabilities have been discovered and corrected in the latest Mozilla Firefox program, version

This update provides the latest Firefox to correct these issues.

Update :

A regression was found in the latest Firefox packages provided where changes to library paths caused applications that depended on the NSS libraries (such as Thunderbird and Evolution) to fail to start or fail to load certain SSL-related security components. These new packages correct that problem and we apologize for any inconvenience the previous update may have caused.


Update the affected packages.
