Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Mozilla Firefox: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200604-12)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: April 23, 2006
Bug(s): #129924
ID: 200604-12

Synopsis

Several vulnerabilities in Mozilla Firefox allow attacks ranging from execution of script code with elevated privileges to information leaks.

Background

Mozilla Firefox is the next-generation web browser from the Mozilla project.

Affected Packages

Package: www-client/mozilla-firefox
Vulnerable: < 1.0.8
Unaffected: >= 1.0.8
Architectures: All supported architectures

Package: www-client/mozilla-firefox-bin
Vulnerable: < 1.0.8
Unaffected: >= 1.0.8
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Several vulnerabilities were found in Mozilla Firefox. Versions 1.0.8 and 1.5.0.2 were released to fix them.

Impact

A remote attacker could craft malicious web pages that would leverage these issues to inject and execute arbitrary script code with elevated privileges, steal local files, cookies or other information from web pages, and spoof content. Some of these vulnerabilities might even be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the rights of the browser user.

Workaround

There are no known workarounds for all the issues at this time.

Resolution

All Mozilla Firefox users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-client/mozilla-firefox-1.0.8"
All Mozilla Firefox binary users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-client/mozilla-firefox-bin-1.0.8"
