Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Update for xulrunner RHSA-2012:0143-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'xulrunner'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'xulrunner'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
XULRunner provides the XUL Runtime environment for applications using the
Gecko layout engine.

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way XULRunner handled
PNG (Portable Network Graphics) images. A web page containing a malicious
PNG image could cause an application linked against XULRunner (such as
Firefox) to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running the application. (CVE-2011-3026)

All XULRunner users should upgrade to these updated packages, which correct
this issue. After installing the update, applications using XULRunner must
be restarted for the changes to take effect.

Affected Software/OS:
xulrunner on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)

Solution:
Please Install the Updated Packages.
