Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser. Several flaws were found in the processing of some malformed web content. A web page containing such malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Firefox.
(CVE-2008-1233, CVE-2008-1235, CVE-2008-1236, CVE-2008-1237) Several flaws were found in the display of malformed web content. A web page containing specially crafted content could, potentially, trick a Firefox user into surrendering sensitive information. (CVE-2008-1234, CVE-2008-1238, CVE-2008-1241) All Firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which correct these issues, and are rebuilt against the update Firefox packages.

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.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
