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 malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Firefox.
(CVE-2008-4058, CVE-2008-4060, CVE-2008-4061, CVE-2008-4062, CVE-2008-4063, CVE-2008-4064) Several flaws were found in the way malformed web content was displayed. A web page containing specially crafted content could potentially trick a Firefox user into surrendering sensitive information. (CVE-2008-4067, CVE-2008-4068) A flaw was found in the way Firefox handles mouse click events. A web page containing specially crafted JavaScript code could move the content window while a mouse-button was pressed, causing any item under the pointer to be dragged. This could, potentially, cause the user to perform an unsafe drag-and-drop action. (CVE-2008-3837) A flaw was found in Firefox that caused certain characters to be stripped from JavaScript code. This flaw could allow malicious JavaScript to bypass or evade script filters. (CVE-2008-4065) For technical details regarding these flaws, please see the Mozilla security advisories for Firefox 3.0.2.[1] All Firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain patches that correct these issues.

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.
