Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser.

Several flaws were found in the way Firefox processes
certain malformed JavaScript code. A malicious web page
could cause the execution of JavaScript code in such a way
that could cause Firefox to crash or execute arbitrary code
as the user running Firefox. (CVE-2006-6498, CVE-2006-6501,
CVE-2006-6502, CVE-2006-6503, CVE-2006-6504)

Several flaws were found in the way Firefox renders web
pages. A malicious web page could cause the browser to crash
or possibly execute arbitrary code as the user running
Firefox. (CVE-2006-6497)

Users of Firefox are advised to upgrade to these erratum
packages, which contain Firefox version that
corrects these issues.
