Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:075
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : mozilla-firefox
Date : April 24, 2006
Affected: 2006.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A number of vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Mozilla Firefox
browser that could allow a remote attacker to craft malicious web pages
that could take advantage of these issues to execute arbitrary code
with elevated privileges, spoof content, and steal local files,
cookies, or other information from web pages. As well, some of these
vulnerabilities can be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running the browser.

As well, two crasher bugs have been fixed as well.

The updated packages have been patched to fix these problems.
