Synopsis

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Security issues were identified and fixed in firefox 3.0.x :

Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.16 and 3.5.x before 3.5.6, SeaMonkey before 2.0.1, and Thunderbird allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors (CVE-2009-3979).

Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox 3.5.x before 3.5.6, SeaMonkey before 2.0.1, and Thunderbird allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors (CVE-2009-3980).

Unspecified vulnerability in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.16, SeaMonkey before 2.0.1, and Thunderbird allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors (CVE-2009-3981).

Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.16 and 3.5.x before 3.5.6, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.1, allows remote attackers to send authenticated requests to arbitrary applications by replaying the NTLM credentials of a browser user (CVE-2009-3983).

Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.16 and 3.5.x before 3.5.6, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.1, allows remote attackers to spoof an SSL indicator for an http URL or a file URL by setting document.location to an https URL corresponding to a site that responds with a No Content (aka 204) status code and an empty body (CVE-2009-3984).

Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.16 and 3.5.x before 3.5.6, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.1, allows remote attackers to associate spoofed content with an invalid URL by setting document.location to this URL, and then writing arbitrary web script or HTML to the associated blank document, a related issue to CVE-2009-2654 (CVE-2009-3985).

Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.16 and 3.5.x before 3.5.6, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.1, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges by leveraging a reference to a chrome window from a content window, related to the window.opener property (CVE-2009-3986).

The GeckoActiveXObject function in Mozilla Firefox before 3.0.16 and 3.5.x before 3.5.6, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.1, generates different exception messages depending on whether the referenced COM object is listed in the registry, which allows remote attackers to obtain potentially sensitive information about installed software by making multiple calls that specify the ProgID values of different COM objects (CVE-2009-3987).

Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0 customers.

Additionally, some packages which require so, have been rebuilt and are being provided as updates.
