Description

An updated firefox package that fixes various security issues is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5.

This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red Hat 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-2009-0040, CVE-2009-0771, CVE-2009-0772, CVE-2009-0773, CVE-2009-0774, CVE-2009-0775)

Several flaws were found in the way malformed content was processed. A website containing specially crafted content could, potentially, trick a Firefox user into surrendering sensitive information. (CVE-2009-0776, CVE-2009-0777)

For technical details regarding these flaws, please see the Mozilla security advisories for Firefox 3.0.7. You can find a link to the Mozilla advisories in the References section of this errata.

All Firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain Firefox version 3.0.7, and which correct these issues. After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
