    <p>
    Mozilla is a popular web browser that includes a mail and newsreader.
    Galeon and Epiphany are both web browsers that use gecko, the Mozilla
    rendering engine. Mozilla Firefox is the next-generation browser from
    the Mozilla project that incorporates advanced features that are yet to
    be incorporated into Mozilla. Mozilla Thunderbird is the
    next-generation mail client from the Mozilla project.

  <description>
    <p>
    Mozilla, Galeon, Epiphany, Mozilla Firefox and Mozilla Thunderbird
    contain the following vulnerabilities:
    </p>
    <ul>
    <li>All Mozilla tools use libpng for graphics. This library contains a
    buffer overflow which may lead to arbitrary code execution.</li>
    <li>If a user imports a forged Certificate Authority (CA) certificate,
    it may overwrite and corrupt the valid CA already installed on the
    machine.</li>
    </ul>
    <p>
    Mozilla, Mozilla Firefox, and other gecko-based browsers also contain a
    bug in their caching which may allow the SSL icon to remain visible,
    even when the site in question is an insecure site.
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="normal">
    <p>
    Users of Mozilla, Mozilla Firefox, and other gecko-based browsers are
    susceptible to SSL certificate spoofing, a Denial of Service against
    legitimate SSL sites, crashes, and arbitrary code execution. Users of
    Mozilla Thunderbird are susceptible to crashes and arbitrary code
    execution via malicious e-mails.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>
    There is no known workaround for most of these vulnerabilities. All
    users are advised to upgrade to the latest available version.
    </p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>
    All users should upgrade to the latest stable version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge sync
    
    # emerge -pv your-version
    # emerge your-version</code>
  </resolution>
