Slackware 11.0 / 12.0 : firefox (SSA:2007-213-01)

High Nessus Plugin ID 25831


The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.


New mozilla-firefox packages are available for Slackware 11.0 and 12.0 to fix security issues. Note that Firefox 1.5.x has reached its EOL (end of life) and is no longer being updated by Users of Firefox 1.5.x are encouraged to upgrade to Firefox 2.x. Since we use the official Firefox binaries, these packages should work equally well on earlier Slackware systems.


Update the affected mozilla-firefox package.
