Mandriva Linux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: mozilla
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2005:170
Date: September 26th, 2005

Affected versions: 10.1, Corporate 3.0
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A number of vulnerabilities have been discovered in Mozilla that have
been corrected in version 1.7.12:

A bug in the way Mozilla 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 Mozilla 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 Mozilla 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 Mozilla 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 Mozilla'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 Mozilla displays about: pages could be used to execute
JavaScript with chrome privileges (CAN-2005-2706).

A bug in the way Mozilla 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).

The updated packages have been patched to address these issues and all
users are urged to upgrade immediately.
