Synopsis
========

The Mozilla Foundation has reported numerous vulnerabilities in Mozilla
Firefox, including one that may allow execution of arbitrary code.

Background
==========

Mozilla Firefox is a redesign of the Mozilla Navigator component. The
goal is to produce a cross-platform, stand-alone browser application.

Description
===========

A number of vulnerabilities were found and fixed in Mozilla Firefox.
For details please consult the references below.

Impact
======

The most severe vulnerability involves enticing a user to visit a
malicious website, crashing the browser and executing arbitrary code
with the rights of the user running the application.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Mozilla Firefox users should upgrade to the latest version:

     # emerge --sync
     # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose 
">=www-client/mozilla-firefox-1.5.0.7"

Users of the binary package should upgrade as well:
