    Security Advisory - RHSA-2002:192-13
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Summary:
    Updated Mozilla packages fix security vulnerabilities

    Updated Mozilla packages are now available for Red Hat Linux. These new
    packages fix vulnerabilities in previous versions of Mozilla.

    Description:
    Mozilla is an open source web browser. Versions of Mozilla previous to
    version 1.0.1 contain various security vulnerabilities. These
    vulnerabilities could be used by an attacker to read data off of the local
    hard drive, to gain information that should normally be kept private, and
    in some cases to execute arbitrary code. For more information on the
    specific vulnerabilities fixed please see the references below.

    All users of Mozilla should update to these errata packages containing
    Mozilla version 1.0.1 which is not vulnerable to these issues.

    Taking Action
    -------------
    You may address the issues outlined in this advisory in two ways:

    - select your server name by clicking on its name from the list
    available at the following location, and then schedule an
    errata update for it:
    https://rhn.redhat.com/network/syste...ystem_list.pxt

    - run the Update Agent on each affected server.


    ---------------------------------
    Changing Notification Preferences

    Actually, these bugs were published (and patched) a while ago. I'd recomment everyone still using 1.0.1 to update to the latest stable release (1.1) anyway. 1.2 beta has been released as well. www.mozilla.org
