                Mandriva Linux Security Update Advisory
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package name:           mozilla-firefox
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2005:169
 Date:                   September 26th, 2005

 Affected versions:      10.2
 ______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A number of vulnerabilities have been discovered in Mozilla Firefox
 that have been corrected in version 1.0.7:
 
 A bug in the way Firefox processes XBM images could be used to execute
 arbitrary code via a specially crafted XBM image file (CAN-2005-2701).
 
 A bug in the way Firefox handles certain Unicode sequences could be
 used to execute arbitrary code via viewing a specially crafted Unicode
 sequence (CAN-2005-2702).
 
 A bug in the way Firefox makes XMLHttp requests could be abused by a
 malicious web page to exploit other proxy or server flaws from the
 victim's machine; however, the default behaviour of the browser is to
 disallow this (CAN-2005-2703).
 
 A bug in the way Firefox implemented its XBL interface could be abused
 by a malicious web page to create an XBL binding in such a way as to
 allow arbitrary JavaScript execution with chrome permissions
 (CAN-2005-2704).
 
 An integer overflow in Firefox's JavaScript engine could be manipulated
 in certain conditions to allow a malicious web page to execute
 arbitrary code (CAN-2005-2705).
 
 A bug in the way Firefox displays about: pages could be used to execute
 JavaScript with chrome privileges (CAN-2005-2706).
 
 A bug in the way Firefox opens new windows could be used by a malicious
 web page to construct a new window without any user interface elements
 (such as address bar and status bar) that could be used to potentially
 mislead the user (CAN-2005-2707).
 
 A bug in the way Firefox proceesed URLs on the command line could be
 used to execute arbitary commands as the user running Firefox; this
 could be abused by clicking on a supplied link, such as from an instant
 messaging client (CAN-2005-2968).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to address these issues and all
 users are urged to upgrade immediately.
