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


A buffer overflow bug was found in the way Mozilla 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 Mozilla responds to proxy auth requests. It is possible for a malicious webserver to steal credentials from a victims browser by issuing a 407 proxy authentication request. (CAN-2005-0147)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla displays dialog windows. It is possible that a malicious web page which is being displayed in a background tab could present the user with a dialog window appearing to come from the active page. (CAN-2004-1380)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla Mail handles cookies when loading content over HTTP regardless of the user's preference. It is possible that a particular user could be tracked through the use of malicious mail messages which load content over HTTP. (CAN-2005-0149)

A flaw was found in the way Mozilla displays international domain names. It is possible for an attacker to display a valid URL, tricking the user into thinking they are viewing a legitimate webpage when they are not. (CAN-2005-0233)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla handles pop-up windows. It is possible for a malicious website to control the content in an unrelated site's pop-up window. (CAN-2004-1156)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla saves temporary files. Temporary files are saved with world readable permissions, which could allow a local malicious user to view potentially sensitive data. (CAN-2005-0142)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla handles synthetic middle click events. It is possible for a malicious web page to steal the contents of a victims clipboard. (CAN-2005-0146)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla processes XUL content. If a malicious web page can trick a user into dragging an object, it is possible to load malicious XUL content. (CAN-2005-0401)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla loads links in a new tab which are middle clicked. A malicious web page could read local files or modify privileged chrom settings. (CAN-2005-0141)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla displays the secure site icon. A malicious web page can use a view-source URL targetted at a secure page, while loading an insecure page, yet the secure site icon shows the previous secure state. (CAN-2005-0144)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla displays the secure site icon. A malicious web page can display the secure site icon by loading a binary file from a secured site. (CAN-2005-0143)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla displays the download dialog window. A malicious site can obfuscate the content displayed in the source field, tricking a user into thinking they are downloading content from a trusted source. (CAN-2005-0585)

Users of Mozilla are advised to upgrade to this updated package which contains Mozilla version 1.7.6 to correct these issues.
