Summary

The remote host is missing an update to mozilla-firefox announced via advisory DSA 779-2. We experienced that the update for Mozilla Firefox from DSA 779-1 unfortunately was a regression in several cases. Since the usual praxis of backporting apparently does not work, this update is basically version 1.0.6 with the version number rolled back, and hence still named 1.0.4-*. For completeness below is the original advisory text: Several problems have been discovered in Mozilla Firefox, a lightweight web browser based on Mozilla. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems: CVE-2005-2260 The browser user interface does not properly distinguish between user-generated events and untrusted synthetic events, which makes it easier for remote attackers to perform dangerous actions that normally could only be performed manually by the user. CVE-2005-2261 XML scripts ran even when Javascript disabled. CVE-2005-2262 The user can be tricked to executing arbitrary JavaScript code by using a JavaScript URL as wallpaper. CVE-2005-2263 It is possible for a remote attacker to execute a callback function in the context of another domain (i.e. frame). CVE-2005-2264 By opening a malicious link in the sidebar it is possible for remote attackers to steal sensitive information. CVE-2005-2265 Missing input sanitising of InstallVersion.compareTo() can cause the application to crash. CVE-2005-2266 Remote attackers could steal sensitive information such as cookies and passwords from web sites by accessing data in alien frames. CVE-2005-2267 By using standalone applications such as Flash and QuickTime to open a javascript: URL, it is possible for a remote attacker to steal sensitive information and possibly execute arbitrary code. CVE-2005-2268 It is possible for a Javascript dialog box to spoof a dialog box from a trusted site and facilitates phishing attacks. CVE-2005-2269 Remote attackers could modify certain tag properties of DOM nodes that could lead to the execution of arbitrary script or code. CVE-2005-2270 The Mozilla browser familie does not properly clone base objects, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code. The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by these problems.

Solution

Solution

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in version 1.0.4-2sarge3. For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version 1.0.6-1. We recommend that you upgrade your Mozilla Firefox packages. https://secure1.securityspace.com/smysecure/catid.html?in=DSA%20779-2
