Vulnerability Scan Summary

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Firefox, which is also present in the other browsers from the same

possibly execute arbitrary code via a hostname with dashes.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.4-2sarge4.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.6-5.
