Description

Updated mozilla packages that fix several security bugs are now available.

This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Fedora Security Response Team.

Mozilla is an open source Web browser, advanced email and newsgroup client, IRC chat client, and HTML editor.

Several bugs were found in the way Mozilla processes malformed JavaScript. A malicious web page could modify the content of a different open web page, possibly stealing sensitive information or conducting a cross-site scripting attack. (CVE-2006-1731, CVE-2006-1732, CVE-2006-1741)

Several bugs were found in the way Mozilla processes certain JavaScript actions. A malicious web page could execute arbitrary JavaScript instructions with the permissions of 'chrome', allowing the page to steal sensitive information or install browser malware. (CVE-2006-1727, CVE-2006-1728, CVE-2006-1733, CVE-2006-1734, CVE-2006-1735, CVE-2006-1742)

Several bugs were found in the way Mozilla processes malformed web pages. A carefully crafted malicious web page could cause the execution of arbitrary code as the user running Mozilla. (CVE-2006-0748, CVE-2006-0749, CVE-2006-1730, CVE-2006-1737, CVE-2006-1738, CVE-2006-1739, CVE-2006-1790)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla displays the secure site icon. If a browser is configured to display the non-default secure site modal warning dialog, it may be possible to trick a user into believing they are viewing a secure site. (CVE-2006-1740)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla allows JavaScript mutation events on 'input' form elements. A malicious web page could be created in such a way that when a user submits a form, an arbitrary file could be uploaded to the attacker. (CVE-2006-1729)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla executes in-line mail forwarding. If a user can be tricked into forwarding a maliciously crafted mail message as in-line content, it is possible for the message to execute JavaScript with the permissions of 'chrome'. (CVE-2006-0884)

Users of Mozilla are advised to upgrade to these updated packages containing Mozilla version 1.7.13 which corrects these issues.

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.
