[slackware-security]  Mozilla/Firefox (SSA:2005-135-01)

New Mozilla packages are available for Slackware 10.0, 10.1, and -current
to fix various security issues and bugs.  See the Mozilla site for a complete
list of the issues patched:

  http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/known-vulnerabilities.html#Mozilla

Also updated is Firefox in Slackware -current.

New versions of the mozilla-plugins symlink creation package are also out for
Slackware 10.0 and 10.1, and a new version of the jre-symlink package for
Slackware -current.


Here are the details from the Slackware 10.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/mozilla-plugins-1.7.8-noarch-1.tgz:  Upgraded Java(TM)
  symlink for Mozilla.
patches/packages/mozilla-1.7.8-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to mozilla-1.7.8.
  Two vulnerabilities found in Mozilla Firefox 1.0.3 when combined allow an
  attacker to run arbitrary code. The Mozilla Suite version 1.7.7 is only
  partially vulnerable.  For more details, see:
    http://www.mozilla.org/security/announce/mfsa2005-42.html
  (* Security fix *)
