Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.55292
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-181-1 (mozilla-firefox)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-181-1 (mozilla-firefox)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to mozilla-firefox
announced via advisory USN-181-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)

The following packages are affected:

mozilla-browser
mozilla-firefox
mozilla-thunderbird

Tom Ferris discovered a buffer overflow in the Mozilla products
(Mozilla browser, Firefox, Thunderbird). By tricking an user to click
on a Hyperlink with a specially crafted destination URL, a remote
attacker could crash the application. It might even be possible to
exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code, but this has
not yet been confirmed.

Solution:
On Ubuntu 4.10, the problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected
packages to version 1.7.10-0ubuntu04.10.1 (mozilla-browser),
1.0.6-0ubuntu04.10.1 (mozilla-thunderbird), and 1.0.6-0ubuntu0.0.2
(mozilla-firefox).

On Ubuntu 5.04, the problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected
packages to version 1.7.10-0ubuntu05.04.1 (mozilla-browser),
1.0.6-0ubuntu05.04.1 (mozilla-thunderbird), and 1.0.6-0ubuntu0.2
(mozilla-firefox).

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart all running
Firefox, Mozilla, and Thunderbird instances to effect the necessary
changes.
