CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C

Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'devhelp' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Affected Versions:
devhelp on CentOS 5

Technical Details:
Mozilla Firefox is an open source web browser. Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2010-1121, CVE-2010-1200, CVE-2010-1202, CVE-2010-1203) A flaw was found in the way browser plug-ins interact. It was possible for a plug-in to reference the freed memory from a different plug-in, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2010-1198) Several integer overflow flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2010-1196, CVE-2010-1199) A focus stealing flaw was found in the way Firefox handled focus changes. A malicious website could use this flaw to steal sensitive data from a user, such as usernames and passwords. (CVE-2010-1125) A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled the 'Content-Disposition: attachment' HTTP header when the 'Content-Type: multipart' HTTP header was also present. A website that allows arbitrary uploads and relies on the 'Content-Disposition: attachment' HTTP header to prevent content from being displayed inline, could be used by an attacker to serve malicious content to users. (CVE-2010-1197) A flaw was found in the Firefox Math.random() function. This function could be used to identify a browsing session and track a user across different websites. (CVE-2008-5913) A flaw was found in the Firefox XML document loading security checks. Certain security checks were not being called when an XML document was loaded. This could possibly be leveraged later by an attacker to load certain resources that violate the security policies of the browser or its add-ons. Note that this issue cannot be exploited by only loading an XML document. (CVE-2010-0182) For technical details regarding these flaws, refer to the Mozilla security advisories for Firefox 3.6.4. You can find a link to the Mozilla advisories in the References section of this erratum. This erratum upgrades Firefox from version 3.0.19 to version 3.6.4. Due to the requirements of Firefox 3.6.4, this erratum also provides a number of other updated Linux Distribution Packages, including esc, totem, and yelp. This erratum also contains multiple bug fixes and numerous enhancements. Space precludes doc ... Description truncated, please see the referenced URL(s) for more information.
