Fedora Legacy Update Advisory

Synopsis: Updated mozilla packages fix security issues
Advisory ID: FLSA:158149
Issue date: 2005-07-15
Product: Red Hat Linux, Fedora Core
Keywords: Bugfix

CAN-2005-1532
---------------------------------------------------------------------


---------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Topic:

Updated mozilla packages that fix various security bugs are now available.

Mozilla is an open source Web browser, advanced email and newsgroup client, IRC chat client, and HTML editor.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.3 - i386
Red Hat Linux 9 - i386
Fedora Core 1 - i386
Fedora Core 2 - i386

3. Problem description:

Several bugs were found in the way Mozilla executes javascript code. Javascript executed from a web page should run with a restricted access level, preventing dangerous actions. It is possible that a malicious web page could execute javascript code with elevated privileges, allowing access to protected data and functions. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CAN-2005-1476, CAN-2005-1477, CAN-2005-1531, and CAN-2005-1532 to these issues.

Users of Mozilla are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which contains Mozilla version 1.7.8 to correct these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via yum and apt. Many people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use yum issue:

yum update

or to use apt:

apt-get update; apt-get upgrade

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system. This assumes that you have yum or apt-get configured for obtaining Fedora Legacy content. Please visit http://www.fedoralegacy.org/docs for directions on how to configure yum and apt-get.

These packages are GPG signed by Fedora Legacy for security. Our key is available from http://www.fedoralegacy.org/about/security.php

You can verify each package with the following command:

rpm --checksig -v lt;filenamegt;

If you only wish to verify that each package has not been corrupted or tampered with, examine only the sha1sum with the following command:

sha1sum lt;filenamegt;
