Update Information:


A buffer overflow bug was found in the way Mozilla processes GIF images. 
It is possible for an attacker to create a specially crafted GIF image, 
which when viewed by a victim will execute arbitrary code as the victim. 
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has 
assigned the name CAN-2005-0399 to this issue.

A bug was found in the way Mozilla responds to proxy auth requests. It 
is possible for a malicious webserver to steal credentials from a 
victims browser by issuing a 407 proxy authentication request. 
(CAN-2005-0147)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla displays dialog windows. It is 
possible that a malicious web page which is being displayed in a 
background tab could present the user with a dialog window appearing to 
come from the active page. (CAN-2004-1380)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla Mail handles cookies when loading 
content over HTTP regardless of the user's preference. It is possible 
that a particular user could be tracked through the use of malicious 
mail messages which load content over HTTP. (CAN-2005-0149)

A flaw was found in the way Mozilla displays international domain names. 
It is possible for an attacker to display a valid URL, tricking the user 
into thinking they are viewing a legitimate webpage when they are not. 
(CAN-2005-0233)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla handles pop-up windows. It is 
possible for a malicious website to control the content in an unrelated 
site's pop-up window. (CAN-2004-1156)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla saves temporary files. Temporary 
files are saved with world readable permissions, which could allow a 
local malicious user to view potentially sensitive data. (CAN-2005-0142)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla handles synthetic middle click 
events. It is possible for a malicious web page to steal the contents of 
a victims clipboard. (CAN-2005-0146)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla processes XUL content. If a malicious 
web page can trick a user into dragging an object, it is possible to 
load malicious XUL content. (CAN-2005-0401)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla loads links in a new tab which are 
middle clicked. A malicious web page could read local files or modify 
privileged chrom settings. (CAN-2005-0141)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla displays the secure site icon. A 
malicious web page can use a view-source URL targetted at a secure page, 
while loading an insecure page, yet the secure site icon shows the 
previous secure state. (CAN-2005-0144)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla displays the secure site icon. A 
malicious web page can display the secure site icon by loading a binary 
file from a secured site. (CAN-2005-0143)

A bug was found in the way Mozilla displays the download dialog window. 
A malicious site can obfuscate the content displayed in the source 
field, tricking a user into thinking they are downloading content from a 
trusted source. (CAN-2005-0585)

Users of Mozilla are advised to upgrade to this updated package which 
contains Mozilla version 1.7.6 to correct these issues.
