Check for the Version of firefox

firefox on Mandriva Linux 2008.0, Mandriva Linux 2008.0/X86_64, Mandriva Linux 2009.0, Mandriva Linux 2009.0/X86_64, Mandriva Linux 2009.1, Mandriva Linux 2009.1/X86_64, Mandriva Linux 2010.0, Mandriva Linux 2010.0/X86_64, Mandriva Enterprise Server 5, Mandriva Enterprise Server 5/X86_64

Technical Details:
Security issues were identified and fixed in firefox: An unspecified function in the JavaScript implementation in Mozilla Firefox creates and exposes a temporary footprint when there is a current login to a web site, which makes it easier for remote attackers to trick a user into acting upon a spoofed pop-up message, aka an in-session phishing attack. (CVE-2008-5913). The JavaScript implementation in Mozilla Firefox 3.x allows remote attackers to send selected keystrokes to a form field in a hidden frame, instead of the intended form field in a visible frame, via certain calls to the focus method (CVE-2010-1125). Integer overflow in the nsGenericDOMDataNode::SetTextInternal function in Mozilla Firefox 3.5.x before 3.5.10 and 3.6.x before 3.6.4, Thunderbird before 3.0.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.5 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a DOM node with a long text value that triggers a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2010-1196). Mozilla Firefox 3.5.x before 3.5.10 and 3.6.x before 3.6.4, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.5, does not properly handle situations in which both Content-Disposition: attachment and Content-Type: multipart are present in HTTP headers, which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via an uploaded HTML document (CVE-2010-1197). Use-after-free vulnerability in Mozilla Firefox 3.5.x before 3.5.10 and 3.6.x before 3.6.4, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.5, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via vectors involving multiple plugin instances (CVE-2010-1198). Integer overflow in the XSLT node sorting implementation in Mozilla Firefox 3.5.x before 3.5.10 and 3.6.x before 3.6.4, Thunderbird before 3.0.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.5 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a large text value for a node (CVE-2010-1199). Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox 3.5.x before 3.5.10 and 3.6.x before 3.6.4, Thunderbird before 3.0.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.5 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors (CVE-2010-1200). Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the JavaScript engine in Mozilla Firefox 3.5.x before 3.5.10 and 3 ... Description truncated, for more information please check the Reference URL

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
