MDKSA-2005:173: mozilla-firefox Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the mozilla-firefox package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:173 (mozilla-firefox).

New updates are available for Mozilla Firefox:

A regression in the LE2005 Firefox package caused problems with cursor movement
that has been fixed.

The script, with debugging enabled, would allow local users to
create or overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on temporary files

nsScriptSecurityManager::GetBaseURIScheme didn't handle jar:view-source:...
correctly because the jar: and view-source: cases didn't use recursion as they
were supposed to. This was corrected in Firefox 1.0.4 and only affects the
LE2005 package.

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution :
Threat Level: High
