Description

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2008:0597 :

Updated firefox packages that fix various security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

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

[Updated 16th July 2008] The nspluginwrapper package has been added to this advisory to satisfy a missing package dependency issue.

Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser.

An integer overflow flaw was found in the way Firefox displayed certain web content. A malicious website could cause Firefox to crash, or execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2008-2785)

A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled certain command line URLs. If another application passed Firefox a malformed URL, it could result in Firefox executing local malicious content with chrome privileges. (CVE-2008-2933)

All firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain Firefox 3.0.1 that corrects these issues.
