Fedora Mozilla is an open source Web browser, advanced email and newsgroup client, IRC chat client, and HTML editor. Igor Bukanov discovered a bug in the way Mozilla's JavaScript interpreter dereferences objects. If a user visits a malicious web page, Mozilla could crash or execute arbitrary code as the user running Mozilla. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name CVE-2006-0292 to this issue. moz_bug_r_a4 discovered a bug in Mozilla's XULDocument.persist() function. A malicious web page could inject arbitrary RDF data into a user's localstore.rdf file, which can cause Mozilla to execute arbitrary JavaScript when a user runs Mozilla. (CVE-2006-0296) A denial of service bug was found in the way Mozilla saves history information. If a user visits a web page with a very long title, it is possible Mozilla will crash or take a very long time to start the next time it is run. (CVE-2005-4134)
