[SECURITY] Fedora 8 Update: chmsee-1.0.0-1.28.fc8



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-1535
2008-02-13 04:18:18
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : chmsee
Product     : Fedora 8
Version     : 1.0.0
Release     : 1.28.fc8
URL         : http://chmsee.gro.clinux.org/
Summary     : A Gtk+2 CHM document viewer
Description :
A gtk2 chm document viewer.

It uses chmlib to extract files. It uses gecko to display pages. It supports
displaying multilingual pages due to gecko. It features bookmarks and tabs.
The tabs could be used to jump inside the chm file conveniently. Its UI is
clean and handy, also is well localized. It is actively developed and
maintained. The author of chmsee is Jungle Ji and several other great people.

Hint
* Unlike other chm viewers, chmsee extracts files from chm file, and then read
and display them. The extracted files could be found in $HOME/.chmsee/bookshelf
directory. You can clean those files at any time and there is a special config
option for that.
* The bookmark is related to each file so not all bookmarks will be loaded,
only current file's.
* Try to remove $HOME/.chmsee if you encounter any problem after an upgrade.

Update Information:

Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser.    Several flaws were found in
the way Firefox processed certain malformed web content. A webpage containing
malicious content could cause Firefox to crash, or potentially execute arbitrary
code as the user running Firefox. (CVE-2008-0412, CVE-2008-0413, CVE-2008-0415,
CVE-2008-0419)    Several flaws were found in the way Firefox displayed
malformed web content. A webpage containing specially-crafted content could
trick a user into surrendering sensitive information. (CVE-2008-0591,
CVE-2008-0593)    A flaw was found in the way Firefox stored password data. If a
user saves login information for a malicious website, it could be possible to
corrupt the password database, preventing the user from properly accessing saved
password data. (CVE-2008-0417)    A flaw was found in the way Firefox handles
certain chrome URLs. If a user has certain extensions installed, it could allow
a malicious website to steal sensitive session data. Note: this flaw does not
affect a default installation of Firefox. (CVE-2008-0418)    A flaw was found in
the way Firefox saves certain text files. If a website offers a file of type
"plain/text", rather than "text/plain", Firefox will not show future
"text/plain" content to the user in the browser, forcing them to save those
files locally to view the content. (CVE-2008-0592)     Users of firefox are
advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain updated packages to
resolve these issues.
