Description

Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser.

Igor Bukanov discovered a bug in the way Firefox's JavaScript interpreter dereferences objects. If a user visits a malicious web page, Firefox could crash or execute arbitrary code as the user running Firefox. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name CVE-2006-0292 to this issue.

moz_bug_r_a4 discovered a bug in Firefox's XULDocument.persist() function. A malicious web page could inject arbitrary RDF data into a user's localstore.rdf file, which can cause Firefox to execute arbitrary JavaScript when a user runs Firefox. (CVE-2006-0296)

A denial of service bug was found in the way Firefox saves history information. If a user visits a web page with a very long title, it is possible Firefox will crash or take a very long time to start the next time it is run. (CVE-2005-4134)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
