GLSA-200703-05 : Mozilla Suite: Multiple vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 24772
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200703-05 (Mozilla Suite: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Several vulnerabilities ranging from code execution with elevated privileges to information leaks affect the Mozilla Suite.
A remote attacker could entice a user to browse to a specially crafted website or open a specially crafted mail that could trigger some of the vulnerabilities, potentially allowing execution of arbitrary code, denials of service, information leaks, or cross-site scripting attacks leading to the robbery of cookies of authentication credentials.
SolutionThe Mozilla Suite is no longer supported and has been masked after some necessary changes on all the other ebuilds which used to depend on it.
Mozilla Suite users should unmerge www-client/mozilla or www-client/mozilla-bin, and switch to a supported product, like SeaMonkey, Thunderbird or Firefox.
# emerge --unmerge 'www-client/mozilla' # emerge --unmerge 'www-client/mozilla-bin'
