- CVE-2008-3836 'moz_bug_r_a4' discovered that several vulnerabilities in feedWriter could lead to Chrome privilege escalation.
- CVE-2008-3837 Paul Nickerson discovered that an attacker could move windows during a mouse click, resulting in unwanted action triggered by drag-and-drop.
- CVE-2008-4058 'moz_bug_r_a4' discovered a vulnerability which can result in Chrome privilege escalation through XPCNativeWrappers.
- CVE-2008-4059 'moz_bug_r_a4' discovered a vulnerability which can result in Chrome privilege escalation through XPCNativeWrappers.
- CVE-2008-4060 Olli Pettay and 'moz_bug_r_a4' discovered a Chrome privilege escalation vulnerability in XSLT handling.
- CVE-2008-4061 Jesse Ruderman discovered a crash in the layout engine, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code.

SolutionUpgrade the xulrunner packages.
For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in version 188.8.131.52~pre080614h-0etch1. Packages for mips will be provided later.
For the upcoming stable distribution (lenny) and the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 184.108.40.206-1.
