Debian Security Advisory DSA 837-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Martin Schulze October 2nd, 2005 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : mozilla-firefox Vulnerability : buffer overflow Problem type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CAN-2005-2871 Debian Bug : 327452

Tom Ferris discovered a bug in the IDN hostname handling of Mozilla Firefox, which is also present in the other browsers from the same family that allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code via a hostname with dashes.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in version 1.0.4-2sarge4.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 1.0.6-5.

We recommend that you upgrade your mozilla-firefox package.
