Description

USN-398-2 fixed vulnerabilities in Firefox 1.5. However, when auto-filling saved-password login forms without a username field, Firefox would crash. This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Various flaws have been reported that allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code with user privileges by tricking the user into opening a malicious web page containing JavaScript or SVG. (CVE-2006-6497, CVE-2006-6498, CVE-2006-6499, CVE-2006-6501, CVE-2006-6502, CVE-2006-6504)

Various flaws have been reported that allow an attacker to bypass Firefox's internal XSS protections by tricking the user into opening a malicious web page containing JavaScript. (CVE-2006-6503).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
