Description

Critical: firefox security update

Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser.

An integer overflow flaw was found in the way Firefox displayed certain web content. A malicious web site could cause Firefox to crash, or execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2008-2785)

A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled certain command line URLs. If another application passed Firefox a malformed URL, it could result in Firefox executing local malicious content with chrome privileges. (CVE-2008-2933)

All firefox users should upgrade to this updated package, which contains backported patches that correct these issues.
