[slackware-security]  mozilla-firefox (SSA:2007-085-01)

New mozilla-firefox packages are available for Slackware 10.2, 11.0,
and -current to fix security issues.

Note that firefox-1.5.x will reach end-of-life next month, so upgrading
to the 2.x branch soon is probably a good idea.

- From http://developer.mozilla.org/devnews/index.php/2007/03/
  "Note: Firefox 1.5.0.x will be maintained with security and stability
   updates until April 24, 2007. All users are encouraged to upgrade
   to Firefox 2."

Since Slackware packages the official Firefox binaries, the Firefox 2
packages in Slackware 11.0 and -current should run on many earlier
Slackware versions as well, though there are some known problems with
plugins (such as gxine).


Here are the details from the Slackware 11.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
xap/mozilla-firefox-1.5.0.10-i686-1.tgz:
  Upgraded to firefox-1.5.0.10.
  This upgrade fixes several possible security bugs.
  For more information, see:
    http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/known-vulnerabilities.html#firefox
  (* Security fix *)
+--------------------------+


Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
