Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Mozilla Firefox and
Mozilla Seamonkey.

Background
==========

Mozilla Firefox is a cross-platform web browser from Mozilla. SeaMonkey
is a free, cross-platform Internet suite.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 www-client/mozilla-firefox < 2.0.0.11 >= 2.0.0.11
2 www-client/mozilla-firefox-bin < 2.0.0.11 >= 2.0.0.11
3 www-client/seamonkey < 1.1.7 >= 1.1.7
4 www-client/seamonkey-bin < 1.1.7 >= 1.1.7
-------------------------------------------------------------------
4 affected packages on all of their supported architectures.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Description
===========

Jesse Ruderman and Petko D. Petkov reported that the jar protocol
handler in Mozilla Firefox and Seamonkey does not properly check MIME
types (CVE-2007-5947). Gregory Fleischer reported that the
window.location property can be used to generate a fake HTTP Referer
(CVE-2007-5960). Multiple memory errors have also been reported
(CVE-2007-5959).

Impact
======

A remote attacker could possibly exploit these vulnerabilities to
execute arbitrary code in the context of the browser and conduct
Cross-Site-Scripting or Cross-Site Request Forgery attacks.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Mozilla Firefox users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot -v
">=www-client/mozilla-firefox-2.0.0.11"

All Mozilla Firefox binary users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask -1 -v ">=www-client/mozilla-firefox-bin-2.0.0.11"

All SeaMonkey users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
">=www-client/seamonkey-1.1.7"

All SeaMonkey binary users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot -v ">=www-client/seamonkey-bin-1.1.7"
