Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2003:163

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2003:163.

attackers to execute arbitrary code via a jar: URL that references a
malformed .jar file, which overflows a buffer during decompression.

These errata packages upgrade Mozilla to version 1.0.2, which is not
vulnerable to this issue. Mozilla 1.0.2 also contains a number of other
stability and security updates.

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
