Vulnerability  : multiple
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CAN-2005-2701 CAN-2005-2702 CAN-2005-2703 CAN-2005-2704

Multiple security vulnerabilities have been identified in the
mozilla-firefox web browser.  These vulnerabilities could allow an
attacker to execute code on the victim's machine via specially crafted
network resources.

CAN-2005-2701

	Heap overrun in XBM image processing

CAN-2005-2702

	Denial of service (crash) and possible execution of arbitrary
	code via Unicode sequences with "zero-width non-joiner"
	characters.

CAN-2005-2703

	XMLHttpRequest header spoofing

CAN-2005-2704

	Object spoofing using XBL 

CAN-2005-2705

	JavaScript integer overflow

CAN-2005-2706

	Privilege escalation using about: scheme

CAN-2005-2707

	Chrome window spoofing allowing windows to be created without
	UI components such as a URL bar or status bar that could be
	used to carry out phishing attacks

For the stable distribution (sarge), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0.4-2sarge5

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0.7-1

We recommend that you upgrade your mozilla-firefox package.
