 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDKSA-2006:037
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Package : mozilla-firefox
 Date    : February 7, 2006
 Affected: 2006.0
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Problem Description:
 
 Mozilla and Mozilla Firefox allow remote attackers to cause a denial of
 service (CPU consumption and delayed application startup) via a web
 site with a large title, which is recorded in history.dat but not
 processed efficiently during startup. (CVE-2005-4134)
 
 The Javascript interpreter (jsinterp.c) in Mozilla and Firefox before
 1.5.1 does not properly dereference objects, which allows remote
 attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or execute arbitrary
 code via unknown attack vectors related to garbage collection.
 (CVE-2006-0292)
 
 The XULDocument.persist function in Mozilla, Firefox before 1.5.0.1,
 and SeaMonkey before 1.0 does not validate the attribute name, which
 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary Javascript by injecting
 RDF data into the user's localstore.rdf file. (CVE-2006-0296)
 
 Updated packages are patched to address these issues.
