  <description>
    <p>
    The following vulnerabilities were found and fixed in Mozilla
    Firefox:
    </p>
    <ul>
    <li>Michael Krax reported that plugins can be used
    to load privileged content and trick the user to interact with it
    (CAN-2005-0232, CAN-2005-0527)</li>
    <li>Michael Krax also reported
    potential spoofing or cross-site-scripting issues through overlapping
    windows, image drag-and-drop, and by dropping javascript: links on tabs
    (CAN-2005-0230, CAN-2005-0231, CAN-2005-0591)</li>
    <li>Daniel de Wildt
    and Gael Delalleau discovered a memory overwrite in a string library
    (CAN-2005-0255)</li>
    <li>Wind Li discovered a possible heap overflow in
    UTF8 to Unicode conversion (CAN-2005-0592)</li>
    <li>Eric Johanson
    reported that Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) features allow
    homograph attacks (CAN-2005-0233)</li>
    <li>Mook, Doug Turner, Kohei
    Yoshino and M. Deaudelin reported various ways of spoofing the SSL
    "secure site" indicator (CAN-2005-0593)</li>
    <li>Matt Brubeck reported
    a possible Autocomplete data leak (CAN-2005-0589)</li>
    <li>Georgi
    Guninski discovered that XSLT can include stylesheets from arbitrary
    hosts (CAN-2005-0588)</li>
    <li>Secunia discovered a way of injecting
    content into a popup opened by another website (CAN-2004-1156)</li>
    <li>Phil Ringnalda reported a possible way to spoof Install source with
    user:pass@host (CAN-2005-0590)</li>
    <li>Jakob Balle from Secunia
    discovered a possible way of spoofing the Download dialog source
    (CAN-2005-0585)</li>
    <li>Christian Schmidt reported a potential
    spoofing issue in HTTP auth prompt tab (CAN-2005-0584)</li>
    <li>Andreas
    Sanblad from Secunia discovered a possible way of spoofing the Download
    dialog using the Content-Disposition header (CAN-2005-0586)</li>
    <li>Finally, Tavis Ormandy of the Gentoo Linux Security Audit Team
    discovered that Firefox insecurely creates temporary filenames in
    /tmp/plugtmp (CAN-2005-0578)</li>
    </ul>
  </description>
  <impact type="normal">
    <ul>
    <li>By setting up malicious websites and convincing users to
    follow untrusted links or obey very specific drag-and-drop or download
    instructions, attackers may leverage the various spoofing issues to
    fake other websites to get access to confidential information, push
    users to download malicious files or make them interact with their
    browser preferences.</li>
    <li>The temporary directory issue allows
    local attackers to overwrite arbitrary files with the rights of another
    local user.</li>
    <li>The overflow issues, while not thought to be
    exploitable, may allow a malicious downloaded page to execute arbitrary
    code with the rights of the user viewing the page.</li>
    </ul>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>
    There is no known workaround at this time.
    </p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>
    All Firefox users should upgrade to the latest version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=www-client/mozilla-firefox-1.0.1"</code>
    <p>
    All Firefox binary users should upgrade to the latest version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=www-client/mozilla-firefox-bin-1.0.1"</code>
  </resolution>
