New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionSecurity issues were identified and fixed in firefox 3.0.x :
Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.14 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors (CVE-2009-3069, CVE-2009-3070, CVE-2009-3071, CVE-2009-3072).
Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.14 does not properly implement certain dialogs associated with the (1) pkcs11.addmodule and (2) pkcs11.deletemodule operations, which makes it easier for remote attackers to trick a user into installing or removing an arbitrary PKCS11 module (CVE-2009-3076).
Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.14 does not properly manage pointers for the columns (aka TreeColumns) of a XUL tree element, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted HTML document, related to a dangling pointer vulnerability.
Visual truncation vulnerability in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.14 allows remote attackers to trigger a vertical scroll and spoof URLs via unspecified Unicode characters with a tall line-height property (CVE-2009-3078).
This update provides the latest Mozilla Firefox 3.0.x to correct these issues.
Additionally, some packages which require so, have been rebuilt and are being provided as updates.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
