* Mozilla Firefox

* Netscape Browser
Other products based on Mozilla components may also be affected.
The Mozilla web browser and derived products contain several
vulnerabilities, the most severe of which could allow a remote
attacker to execute arbitrary code on an affected system.
Mozilla has released new versions of Firefox, Thunderbird, and
SeaMonkey to address several vulnerabilities. Further details about
these vulnerabilities are available from Mozilla and the Vulnerability
Notes Database. An attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by
convincing a user to view a specially-crafted HTML document, such as a
web page or an HTML email message.
Support for Firefox 1.5 is scheduled to end in June 2007. According to
Firefox 1.5.0.x will be maintained with security and stability
updates until June 2007. All users are strongly encouraged to
upgrade to Firefox 2.
While the impacts of the individual vulnerabilities vary, the most
severe could allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to execute
arbitrary code on a vulnerable system. An attacker may also be able to
cause a denial of service.
These vulnerabilities are addressed in Mozilla Firefox 188.8.131.52,
Firefox 184.108.40.206, Thunderbird 220.127.116.11, Thunderbird 18.104.22.168,
SeaMonkey 1.0.9, SeaMonkey 1.1.2. By default, Mozilla Firefox,
Thunderbird, and SeaMonkey automatically check for updates.
