[slackware-security]  mozilla-firefox (SSA:2009-215-01)

A new mozilla-firefox package is available for Slackware 12.2 to fix
security issues.

The updated packages may also be used with Slackware 11.0 or newer.


More details about the issues may be found on the Mozilla website:

  http://www.mozilla.org/security/announce/2009/mfsa2009-42.html
  http://www.mozilla.org/security/announce/2009/mfsa2009-43.html


Here are the details from the Slackware 12.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/mozilla-firefox-3.0.13-i686-1.tgz:  Upgraded.
  This fixes a couple of security issues.
  For more information, see:
    http://www.mozilla.org/security/announce/2009/mfsa2009-42.html
    http://www.mozilla.org/security/announce/2009/mfsa2009-43.html
  (* Security fix *)
+--------------------------+


Where to find the new package:
+----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.

Updated package for Slackware 12.2:
