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.
