Several security related problems have been discovered in Mozilla and
derived products such as Mozilla Firefox.  The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following


    Fernando Ribeiro discovered that a vulnerability in the getRawDER
    functionallows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
    (hang) and possibly execute arbitrary code.


    Daniel Bleichenbacher recently described an implementation error
    in RSA signature verification that cause the application to
    incorrectly trust SSL certificates.

CVE-2006-4565, CVE-2006-4566

    Priit Laes reported that that a JavaScript regular expression can
    trigger a heap-based buffer overflow which allows remote attackers
    to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code.


    A vulnerability has been discovered that allows remote attackers
    to bypass the security model and inject content into the sub-frame
    of another site.


    Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in Firefox, Thunderbird and
    SeaMonkey allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service,
    corrupt memory, and possibly execute arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0.4-2sarge12.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.5.dfsg+ of firefox.

We recommend that you upgrade your Mozilla Firefox package.
