Description

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2007:0724 :

Updated firefox packages that fix several security bugs are 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 way Firefox processed certain malformed JavaScript code. A web page containing malicious JavaScript code could cause Firefox to crash or potentially execute arbitrary code as the user running Firefox. (CVE-2007-3734, CVE-2007-3735, CVE-2007-3737, CVE-2007-3738)

Several content injection flaws were found in the way Firefox handled certain JavaScript code. A web page containing malicious JavaScript code could inject arbitrary content into other web pages. (CVE-2007-3736, CVE-2007-3089)

A flaw was found in the way Firefox cached web pages on the local disk. A malicious web page may be able to inject arbitrary HTML into a browsing session if the user reloads a targeted site. (CVE-2007-3656)

Users of Firefox are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages, which contain backported patches that correct these issues.
