--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-3283
2008-04-22 22:17:20
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : galeon
Product     : Fedora 8
Version     : 2.0.4
Release     : 2.fc8.3
URL         : http://galeon.sourceforge.net/
Summary     : GNOME2 Web browser based on Mozilla
Description :
Galeon is a web browser built around Gecko (Mozilla's rendering
engine) and Necko (Mozilla's networking engine). It's a GNOME web
browser, designed to take advantage of as many GNOME technologies as
makes sense. Galeon was written to do just one thing - browse the web.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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.
