USN-602-1: Firefox vulnerabilities

22 April 2008

Firefox vulnerabilities




Flaws were discovered in Firefox which could lead to crashes during
JavaScript garbage collection. If a user were tricked into opening a
malicious web page, an attacker may be able to crash the browser or
possibly execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 7.10
Ubuntu 7.04
Ubuntu 6.10
Ubuntu 6.06

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