[slackware-security]  firefox (SSA:2007-200-01)

New mozilla-firefox packages are available for Slackware 11.0 and 12.0
to fix security issues.

Note that Firefox 1.5.x has reached its EOL (end of life) and is no
longer being updated by mozilla.com.  Users of Firefox 1.5.x are
encouraged to upgrade to Firefox 2.x.  Since we use the official Firefox
binaries, these packages should work equally well on earlier Slackware
systems.

More details about the security issues may be found at this link:
    http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/known-vulnerabilities.html#firefox


Here are the details from the Slackware 12.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/mozilla-firefox-2.0.0.5-i686-1.tgz:
  Upgraded to firefox-2.0.0.5.
  This upgrade fixes a couple of minor security bugs.  Nobody here is launching
  Firefox from Internet Explorer, right?  :-)
  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.

Updated package for Slackware 11.0:
ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware-11.0/extra/mozilla-firefox-2.0.0.5/mozilla-firefox-2.0.0.5-i686-1.tgz

Updated packages for Slackware 12.0:
