The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in Mozilla Firefox.

This will be the last security update of Mozilla-based products for the oldstable (sarge) distribution of Debian. We recommend to upgrade to stable (etch) as soon as possible.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following vulnerabilities :

- CVE-2007-1282 It was discovered that an integer overflow in text/enhanced message parsing allows the execution of arbitrary code.

- CVE-2007-0994 It was discovered that a regression in the JavaScript engine allows the execution of JavaScript with elevated privileges.

- CVE-2007-0995 It was discovered that incorrect parsing of invalid HTML characters allows the bypass of content filters.

- CVE-2007-0996 It was discovered that insecure child frame handling allows cross-site scripting.

- CVE-2007-0981 It was discovered that Firefox handles URI with a null byte in the hostname insecurely.

- CVE-2007-0008 It was discovered that a buffer overflow in the NSS code allows the execution of arbitrary code.

- CVE-2007-0009 It was discovered that a buffer overflow in the NSS code allows the execution of arbitrary code.

- CVE-2007-0775 It was discovered that multiple programming errors in the layout engine allow the execution of arbitrary code.

- CVE-2007-0778 It was discovered that the page cache calculates hashes in an insecure manner.

- CVE-2006-6077 It was discovered that the password manager allows the disclosure of passwords.


For the oldstable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in version 1.0.4-2sarge17. You should upgrade to etch as soon as possible.

The stable distribution (etch) isn't affected. These vulnerabilities have been fixed prior to the release of Debian etch.
