Insight

Insight

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 as the user running Firefox. (CVE-2008-0017, CVE-2008-5014, CVE-2008-5016, CVE-2008-5017, CVE-2008-5018, CVE-2008-5019, CVE-2008-5021) Several flaws were found in the way malformed content was processed. A web site containing specially-crafted content could potentially trick a Firefox user into surrendering sensitive information. (CVE-2008-5022, CVE-2008-5023, CVE-2008-5024) A flaw was found in the way Firefox opened &quot file:&quot URIs. If a file: URI was loaded in the same tab as a chrome or privileged &quot about:&quot page, the file: URI could execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2008-5015) For technical details regarding these flaws, please see the Mozilla security advisories for Firefox 3.0.4. You can find a link to the Mozilla advisories in the References section. All firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches that correct these issues.
