Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200408-22 (Mozilla, Firefox, Thunderbird, Galeon, Epiphany: New releases fix vulnerabilities)

Mozilla, Galeon, Epiphany, Mozilla Firefox and Mozilla Thunderbird     contain the following vulnerabilities:
All Mozilla tools use libpng for graphics. This library contains a     buffer overflow which may lead to arbitrary code execution.
If a user imports a forged Certificate Authority (CA) certificate,     it may overwrite and corrupt the valid CA already installed on the     machine.
Mozilla, Mozilla Firefox, and other gecko-based browsers also contain a     bug in their caching which may allow the SSL icon to remain visible,     even when the site in question is an insecure site.

Impact :

Users of Mozilla, Mozilla Firefox, and other gecko-based browsers are     susceptible to SSL certificate spoofing, a Denial of Service against     legitimate SSL sites, crashes, and arbitrary code execution. Users of     Mozilla Thunderbird are susceptible to crashes and arbitrary code     execution via malicious e-mails.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround for most of these vulnerabilities. All     users are advised to upgrade to the latest available version.
