SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionUpdated firefox packages that fix several security issues are now available for Fedora 8. An integer overflow flaw was found in the way Firefox displayed certain web content. A malicious website could cause Firefox to crash, or execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2008-2785) A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled certain command line URLs. If another application passed Firefox a malformed URL, it could result in Firefox executing local malicious content with chrome privileges. (CVE-2008-2933) Updated packages update Mozilla Firefox to upstream version 220.127.116.11 to address these flaws: http://www.mozilla.org/security/known- vulnerabilities/firefox20.html#firefox18.104.22.168 This update also contains blam, cairo-dock, chmsee, devhelp, epiphany, epiphany-extensions, galeon, gnome- python2-extras, gnome-web-photo, gtkmozembedmm, kazehakase, liferea, Miro, openvrml, ruby-gnome2 and yelp packages rebuilt against new Firefox / Gecko libraries.
