Package        : mozilla-firefox
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2871
Debian Bug     : 327452

Tom Ferris discovered a bug in the IDN hostname handling of Mozilla
Firefox, which is also present in the other browsers from the same
family that allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service and
possibly execute arbitrary code via a hostname with dashes.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.4-2sarge4.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.6-5.

We recommend that you upgrade your mozilla-firefox package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
