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                         /  Vulnerable  /       Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  www-client/mozilla-firefox           < 1.0.8             >= 1.0.8
  2  www-client/mozilla-firefox-bin       < 1.0.8             >= 1.0.8
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     2 affected packages on all of their 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:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-client/mozilla-firefox-1.0.8"

All Mozilla Firefox binary users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
">=www-client/mozilla-firefox-bin-1.0.8"
