Description

Updated firefox packages that fix several security issues are now available for Fedora 8. This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Fedora Security Response Team. Multiple flaws were found in the processing of malformed JavaScript content. A web page containing such malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Firefox. (CVE-2008-2801, CVE-2008-2802, CVE-2008-2803) 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-2008-2798, CVE-2008-2799, CVE-2008-2811) Several flaws were found in the way malformed web content was displayed. A web page containing specially crafted content could potentially trick a Firefox user into surrendering sensitive information. (CVE-2008-2800) Two local file disclosure flaws were found in Firefox. A web page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to reveal the contents of a local file to a remote attacker. (CVE-2008-2805, CVE-2008-2810) A flaw was found in the way a malformed .properties file was processed by Firefox. A malicious extension could read uninitialized memory, possibly leaking sensitive data to the extension. (CVE-2008-2807) A flaw was found in the way Firefox escaped a listing of local file names. If a user could be tricked into listing a local directory containing malicious file names, arbitrary JavaScript could be run with the permissions of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2008-2808) A flaw was found in the way Firefox displayed information about self-signed certificates. It was possible for a self-signed certificate to contain multiple alternate name entries, which were not all displayed to the user, allowing them to mistakenly extend trust to an unknown site. (CVE-2008-2809) Updated packages update Mozilla Firefox to upstream version 2.0.0.15 to address these flaws: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/known- vulnerabilities.html#firefox2.0.0.15 This update also contains blam, chmsee, devhelp, epiphany, epiphany-extensions, galeon, gnome-python2-extras, gnome-web- photo, gtkmozembedmm, kazehakase, liferea, Miro, openvrml, ruby-gnome2 and yelp packages rebuilt against new Firefox / Gecko libraries.
