1. Problem Description

        The Mozilla 1.7.6 browser in this update represents a
        significant advancement in features and fixes over the
        Mozilla 1.2.1 released with UnixWare 7.1.4. 

        This update addresses the following security issues: 

        Technical Cyber Security Alert TA04-261A Multiple vulnerabilities in 
        Mozilla products 

        VU#414240 - Mozilla Mail vulnerable to buffer overflow via writeGroup()
                    function in nsVCardObj.cpp
        VU#847200 - Mozilla contains integer overflows in bitmap image decoder
        VU#808216 - Mozilla contains heap overflow in UTF8 conversion of 
                    hostname portion of URLs 
        VU#125776 - Multiple buffer overflows in Mozilla POP3 protocol handler 
        VU#327560 - Mozilla "send page" feature contains a buffer overflow 
        VU#651928 - Mozilla allows arbitrary code execution via link dragging 

        These vulnerabilities could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary
        code with the privileges of the user running the affected application.

        This fix also addresses several other security issues, and their
        CAN numbers are listed below. 

        The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) 
        has assigned the following names:CAN-2005-0399 CAN-2004-0597 
        CAN-2004-0599 CAN-2004-0718 CAN-2004-0722 CAN-2004-0757 
        CAN-2004-0758 CAN-2004-0759 CAN-2004-0760 CAN-2004-0761 
        CAN-2004-0762 CAN-2004-0763 CAN-2004-0764 CAN-2004-0765
