Update Information:

An updated firefox package that fixes as security bug is now
available for Fedora Core 4.

This update has been rated as having critical security
impact by the Fedora Security Response Team.

Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser.

A bug was found in the way Firefox processes certain
international domain names. An attacker could create a
specially crafted HTML file, which when viewed by the victim
would cause Firefox to crash or possibly execute arbitrary
code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-2871 to this
issue.

Users of Firefox are advised to upgrade to this updated
package that contains a backported patch and is not
vulnerable to this issue.
