Package: netscape (communicator, navigator)
Vulnerability: remote exploit
Debian-specific: no

Existing Netscape Communicator/Navigator packages contain the following
vulnerabilities:

 1. Netscape Communicator JPEG-Comment Heap Overwrite Vulnerability
    - executes arbitrary code in the comment field of a JPEG image
    - Netscape Communicator/Navigator versions 4.0 through 4.73 are vulnerable
 2. Multiple Vendor Java Virtual Machine Listening Socket Vulnerability
 3. Netscape Communicator URL Read Vulnerability
    - items 2 and 3 together are known as the "Brown Orifice" vulnerability
    - can be exploited to expose the contents of your computer to anyone on the
      Internet, allowing to read files visible to the user running the browser
    - Netscape Communicator/Navigator versions 4.0 through 4.74 are vulnerable

Netscape Communicator/Navigator is not a part of the Debian distribution, but
packages are available for the convenience of our users. We recommend that
users who choose to run Netscape Communicator/Navigator upgrade to version
4.75. New packages are available in source form and for Intel ia32 machines
running Debian 2.2 (potato). Note that the new packages will not remove your
existing Communicator/Navigator packages; you should manually remove any older
installed versions of Communicator/Navigator. (More detailed instructions for
installing and removing these packages is available in the web version of this
report, at http://www.debian.org/security/2000/20000901)

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.
