Update Information:

Updated firefox and xulrunner packages that fix various security issues are now
available for Fedora Core 8.    This update has been rated as having critical
security impact by the Fedora Security Response Team.    Mozilla Firefox is an
open source Web browser.    Several flaws were found in the processing of
malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause
Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running
Firefox. (CVE-2008-0017, CVE-2008-5014, CVE-2008-5016, CVE-2008-5017,
CVE-2008-5018, CVE-2008-5019, CVE-2008-5021)    Several flaws were found in the
way malformed content was processed. A web site containing specially-crafted
content could potentially trick a Firefox user into surrendering sensitive
information. (CVE-2008-5022, CVE-2008-5023, CVE-2008-5024)    A flaw was found
in the way Firefox opened "file:" URIs. If a file: URI was loaded in the same
tab as a chrome or privileged "about:" page, the file: URI could execute
arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2008-5015)
For technical details regarding these flaws, please see the Mozilla security
advisories for Firefox 2.0.0.18[1].    All firefox users and users of packages
depending on firefox[2] should upgrade to these updated packages, which correct
these issues.    [1] http://www.mozilla.org/security/known-
