[slackware-security]  Mozilla  (SSA:2004-223-01)

New Mozilla packages are available for Slackware 9.1, 10.0, and -current
to fix a number of security issues.  Slackware 10.0 and -current were
upgraded to Mozilla 1.7.2, and Slackware 9.1 was upgraded to Mozilla 1.4.3.
As usual, new versions of Mozilla require new versions of things that link
with the Mozilla libraries, so for Slackware 10.0 and -current new versions
of epiphany, galeon, gaim, and mozilla-plugins have also been provided.
There don't appear to be epiphany and galeon versions that are compatible
with Mozilla 1.4.3 and the GNOME in Slackware 9.1, so these are not
provided and Epiphany and Galeon will be broken on Slackware 9.1 if the
new Mozilla package is installed.  Furthermore, earlier versions of
Mozilla (such as the 1.3 series) were not fixed upstream, so versions
of Slackware earlier than 9.1 will remain vulnerable to these browser
issues.  If you still use Slackware 9.0 or earlier, you may want to
consider removing Mozilla or upgrading to a newer version.

More details about these issues may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:
