Description

Updated firefox packages that fix a security bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5. This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser. A flaw was found in the processing of malformed JavaScript content. A web page containing such malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Firefox. (CVE-2008-1380) All Firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches that correct these issues.

Solution(s)

  • redhat-upgrade-firefox
  • redhat-upgrade-firefox-devel
