===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-717-2          February 10, 2009
firefox-3.0 vulnerabilities
CVE-2009-0355, CVE-2009-0357
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 7.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 7.10:
  firefox                         2.0.0.21~20090209t122238+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.7.10.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart Firefox to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

A flaw was discovered in the browser engine when restoring closed tabs. If a
user were tricked into restoring a tab to a malicious website with form input
controls, an attacker could steal local files on the user's system.
(CVE-2009-0355)

Wladimir Palant discovered that Firefox did not restrict access to cookies in
HTTP response headers. If a user were tricked into opening a malicious web
page, a remote attacker could view sensitive information. (CVE-2009-0357)
