    description New Mozilla packages are available for Slackware 9.1, 10.0, and -current to fix a number of security issues. Slackware 10.0 and -current were upgraded to Mozilla 1.7.2, and Slackware 9.1 was upgraded to Mozilla 1.4.3. As usual, new versions of Mozilla require new versions of things that link with the Mozilla libraries, so for Slackware 10.0 and -current new versions of epiphany, galeon, gaim, and mozilla-plugins have also been provided. There don't appear to be epiphany and galeon versions that are compatible with Mozilla 1.4.3 and the GNOME in Slackware 9.1, so these are not provided and Epiphany and Galeon will be broken on Slackware 9.1 if the new Mozilla package is installed. Furthermore, earlier versions of Mozilla (such as the 1.3 series) were not fixed upstream, so versions of Slackware earlier than 9.1 will remain vulnerable to these browser issues. If you still use Slackware 9.0 or earlier, you may want to consider removing Mozilla or upgrading to a newer version.

    description A number of security vulnerabilities in mozilla are addressed by this update for Mandrakelinux 10.0 users, including a fix for frame spoofing, a fixed popup XPInstall/security dialog bug, a fix for untrusted chrome calls, a fix for SSL certificate spoofing, a fix for stealing secure HTTP Auth passwords via DNS spoofing, a fix for insecure matching of cert names for non-FQDNs, a fix for focus redefinition from another domain, a fix for a SOAP parameter overflow, a fix for text drag on file entry, a fix for certificate DoS, and a fix for lock icon and cert spoofing. Additionally, mozilla for both Mandrakelinux 9.2 and 10.0 have been rebuilt to use the system libjpeg and libpng which addresses vulnerabilities discovered in libpng (ref: MDKSA-2004:079).

    description The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2004:023 (libpng). Several different security vulnerabilities were found in the PNG library which is used by applications to support the PNG image format. A remote attacker would be able to execute arbitrary code by triggering a buffer overflow due to the incorrect handling of the length of transparency chunk data and in other pathes of image processing. A special PNG image can be used to cause an application crashing due to NULL pointer dereference in the function png_handle_iCPP() (and other locations). Integer overflows were found in png_handle_sPLT(), png_read_png() functions and other locations. These bugs may at least crash an application.

    description Updated libpng packages that fix several issues are now available. The libpng package contains a library of functions for creating and manipulating PNG (Portable Network Graphics) image format files. During a source code audit, Chris Evans discovered several buffer overflows in libpng. An attacker could create a carefully crafted PNG file in such a way that it would cause an application linked with libpng to execute arbitrary code when the file was opened by a victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0597 to these issues. In addition, this audit discovered a potential NULL pointer dereference in libpng (CVE-2004-0598) and several integer overflow issues (CVE-2004-0599). An attacker could create a carefully crafted PNG file in such a way that it would cause an application linked with libpng to crash when the file was opened by the victim. Red Hat would like to thank Chris Evans for discovering these issues. For users of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 these patches also include a more complete fix for the out of bounds memory access flaw (CVE-2002-1363). All users are advised to update to the updated libpng packages which contain backported security patches and are not vulnerable to these issues.

    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200408-22 (Mozilla, Firefox, Thunderbird, Galeon, Epiphany: New releases fix vulnerabilities) Mozilla, Galeon, Epiphany, Mozilla Firefox and Mozilla Thunderbird contain the following vulnerabilities: All Mozilla tools use libpng for graphics. This library contains a buffer overflow which may lead to arbitrary code execution. If a user imports a forged Certificate Authority (CA) certificate, it may overwrite and corrupt the valid CA already installed on the machine. Mozilla, Mozilla Firefox, and other gecko-based browsers also contain a bug in their caching which may allow the SSL icon to remain visible, even when the site in question is an insecure site. Impact : Users of Mozilla, Mozilla Firefox, and other gecko-based browsers are susceptible to SSL certificate spoofing, a Denial of Service against legitimate SSL sites, crashes, and arbitrary code execution. Users of Mozilla Thunderbird are susceptible to crashes and arbitrary code execution via malicious e-mails. Workaround : There is no known workaround for most of these vulnerabilities. All users are advised to upgrade to the latest available version.
