Update Information:

Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser.    A flaw was found in the
processing of malformed JavaScript content. A web page containing such malicious
content could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as
the user running Firefox. (CVE-2008-1380)    All Firefox users should upgrade to
these updated packages, which contain backported patches that correct these
issues.
