Description

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2008:0879 :

An updated firefox package that fixes various security issues is 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 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-2008-4058, CVE-2008-4060, CVE-2008-4061, CVE-2008-4062, CVE-2008-4063, CVE-2008-4064)

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-2008-4067, CVE-2008-4068)

A flaw was found in the way Firefox handles mouse click events. A web page containing specially crafted JavaScript code could move the content window while a mouse-button was pressed, causing any item under the pointer to be dragged. This could, potentially, cause the user to perform an unsafe drag-and-drop action. (CVE-2008-3837)

A flaw was found in Firefox that caused certain characters to be stripped from JavaScript code. This flaw could allow malicious JavaScript to bypass or evade script filters. (CVE-2008-4065)

For technical details regarding these flaws, please see the Mozilla security advisories for Firefox 3.0.2. You can find a link to the Mozilla advisories in the References section.

All firefox users should upgrade to this updated package, which contains backported patches that correct these issues.
