Foresight: firefox  08 May 2008 
A flaw has been found in previous versions of firefox's JavaScript garbage collector. This issue is known to cause a Denial-of-Service via maliciously-crafted web pages, and is suspected of allowing arbitrary code execution on the target machine by an attacker.
Foresight: python  12 February 2008 
Previous versions of the python package contain an integer overflow in the imageop module which could cause a denial-of-service (crash) or possibly leak sensitive information.
Foresight: firefox  12 February 2008 
Multiple vulnerabilities have been fixed in firefox, the most serious of which is thought to allow unauthorized remote execution of abitrary code at the permission level of the user running firefox.
Foresight: imageop  12 February 2008 
Previous versions of the python package contain an integer overflow in the imageop module which could cause a denial-of-service (crash) or possibly leak sensitive information.
Foresight: nss_ldap  12 February 2008 
Previous versions of nss_ldap contain a race condition that can allow nss_ldap to return the wrong information, allowing for the possibility of improper information disclosure.
Foresight: rsync  12 February 2008 
Previous versions of the rsync package contain vulnerabilities in the rsync server, potentially allowing users to bypass security restrictions. Foresight Linux does not, by default, configure the rsync server to run.
Foresight: e2fsprogs  12 February 2008 
Previous versions of the e2fsprogs package are vulnerable to multiple integer overflows which may be exploited via specially-crafted filesystems. The workaround for is to not run fsck on a filesystem to which an untrusted user has the ability to directly modify filesystem metadata. This is most commonly an issue when using a virtualization solution in which the root user for the guest OS is not trusted, and can convince the host's root user to run fsck on the guests's filesystem. Foresight Linux neither enables nor supports any form of virtualization in the default install.
