---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2006-976
2006-09-14
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product     : Fedora Core 5
Name        : firefox
Version     : 1.5.0.7
Release     : 1.fc5
Summary     : Mozilla Firefox Web browser.
Description :
Mozilla Firefox is an open-source web browser, designed for standards
compliance, performance and portability.

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

Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser.

Two flaws were found in the way Firefox processed certain
regular expressions. A malicious web page could crash the
browser or possibly execute arbitrary code as the user
running Firefox. (CVE-2006-4565, CVE-2006-4566)

A number of flaws were found in Firefox. A malicious web
page could crash the browser or possibly execute arbitrary
code as the user running Firefox. (CVE-2006-4571)

A flaw was found in the handling of JavaScript timed events.
A malicious web page could crash the browser or possibly
execute arbitrary code as the user running Firefox.
(CVE-2006-4253)

A flaw was found in the Firefox auto-update verification
system. An attacker who has the ability to spoof a victim's
DNS could get Firefox to download and install malicious
code. In order to exploit this issue an attacker would also
need to get a victim to previously accept an unverifiable
certificate. (CVE-2006-4567)

Firefox did not properly prevent a frame in one domain from
injecting content into a sub-frame that belongs to another
domain, which facilitates website spoofing and other attacks
(CVE-2006-4568)

Firefox did not load manually opened, blocked popups in the
right domain context, which could lead to cross-site
scripting attacks. In order to exploit this issue an
attacker would need to find a site which would frame their
malicious page and convince the user to manually open a
blocked popup. (CVE-2006-4569)

Users of Firefox are advised to upgrade to this update,
which contains Firefox version 1.5.0.7 that corrects these
issues.
