---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2005-246
2005-03-23
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : firefox
Version     : 1.0.2
Release     : 1.3.1
Summary     : Mozilla Firefox Web browser.
Description :
Mozilla Firefox is an open-source web browser, designed for standards
compliance, performance and portability.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:


A buffer overflow bug was found in the way Firefox processes GIF images. It is possible for an attacker to create a specially crafted GIF image, which when viewed by a victim will execute arbitrary code as the victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0399 to this issue.


A bug was found in the way Firefox processes XUL content. If a malicious
web page can trick a user into dragging an object, it is possible to load malicious XUL content. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0401 to this issue.


A bug was found in the way Firefox bookmarks content to the sidebar. If a user can be tricked into bookmarking a malicious web page into the sidebar panel, that page could execute arbitrary programs. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0402 to this issue.


Users of Firefox are advised to upgrade to this updated package which
contains Firefox version 1.0.2 and is not vulnerable to these issues.

Additionally, there was a bug found in the way Firefox rendered some fonts, notably the Tahoma font while italicized. This issue has been filed as Bug 150041 (bugzilla.redhat.com). This updated package contains a fix for this issue.
