                Linux-Mandrake Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           netscape
Date:                   August 21st, 2000
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2000:036

Affected versions:      6.0, 6.1, 7.0, 7.1

Problem Description:

 There exists a problem in all versions of Netscape from 4.0 to 4.74 
 with Java enabled.  Under certain conditions, Netscape can be turned 
 into a server that serves files on your local hard drive that Netscape 
 has read access to and remote people can access it by connecting their 
 web client to port 8080 on your machine if they know the IP address.
 This vulnerability has been fixed in Netscape 4.75.
________________________________________________________________________

Please verify these md5 checksums of the updates prior to upgrading to
ensure the integrity of the downloaded package.  You can do this by
running the md5sum program on the downloaded package by using
"md5sum package.rpm".

To upgrade automatically, use « MandrakeUpdate ».  

If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one 
of our FTP server mirrors and uprade with "rpm -Uvh package_name".  

You can download the updates directly from:
   ftp://ftp.linux.tucows.com/pub/distributions/Mandrake/Mandrake/updates
   ftp://ftp.free.fr/pub/Distributions_Linux/Mandrake/updates

Or try one of the other mirrors listed at:

   http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/ftp.php3.  

Updated packages are available in the "updates/[ver]/RPMS/" directory.  
For example, if you are looking for an updated RPM package for
Linux-Mandrake 7.1, look for it in "updates/7.1/RPMS/".  Updated source
RPMs are available as well, but you generally do not need to download
them.

Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours to 
update, so if you want an immediate upgrade, please use one of the two 
above-listed mirrors.
