    Mozilla Firefox is a popular open-source web browser from the Mozilla
    Project.

  <description>
    <p>
    An anonymous researcher found evidence of memory corruption in the way
    Mozilla Firefox handles certain types of SVG comment DOM nodes.
    Additionally, Frederik Reiss discovered a heap-based buffer overflow in
    the conversion of a CSS cursor. Other issues with memory corruption
    were also fixed. Mozilla Firefox also contains less severe
    vulnerabilities involving JavaScript and Java.
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="normal">
    <p>
    An attacker could entice a user to view a specially crafted web page
    that will trigger one of the vulnerabilities, possibly leading to the
    execution of arbitrary code. It is also possible for an attacker to
    perform cross-site scripting attacks, leading to the exposure of
    sensitive information, like user credentials.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>
    There are no known workarounds for all the issues at this time.
    </p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>
    All Mozilla Firefox users should upgrade to the latest version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=www-client/mozilla-firefox-1.5.0.9&quot;</code>
    <p>
    All Mozilla Firefox binary release users should upgrade to the latest
    version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=www-client/mozilla-firefox-bin-1.5.0.9&quot;</code>
  </resolution>
