Fedora Update Notification
2007-11-29 01:44:21.449766

Name        : chmsee
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 1.0.0
Release     : 1.27.fc7
URL         : http://chmsee.gro.clinux.org/
Summary     : A Gtk+2 CHM document viewer
Description :
A gtk2 chm document viewer.

It uses chmlib to extract files. It uses gecko to display pages. It supports
displaying multilingual pages due to gecko. It features bookmarks and tabs.
The tabs could be used to jump inside the chm file conveniently. Its UI is
clean and handy, also is well localized. It is actively developed and
maintained. The author of chmsee is Jungle Ji and several other great people.

* Unlike other chm viewers, chmsee extracts files from chm file, and then read
and display them. The extracted files could be found in $HOME/.chmsee/bookshelf
directory. You can clean those files at any time and there is a special config
option for that.
* The bookmark is related to each file so not all bookmarks will be loaded,
only current file's.
* Try to remove $HOME/.chmsee if you encounter any problem after an upgrade.

Update Information:

Updated firefox packages that fix several security issues are now available for Fedora 7.

This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Fedora Security Response Team.

Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser.

A cross-site scripting flaw was found in the way Firefox handled the jar: URI scheme. It was possible for a malicious website to leverage this flaw and conduct a cross-site scripting attack against a user running Firefox. (CVE-2007-5947)

Several flaws were found in the way Firefox processed certain malformed web content. A webpage containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash, or potentially execute arbitrary code as the user running Firefox. (CVE-2007-5959)

A race condition existed when Firefox set the "window.location" property for a webpage. This flaw could allow a webpage to set an arbitrary Referer header, which may lead to a Cross-site Request Forgery (CSRF) attack against websites that rely only on the Referer header for protection. (CVE-2007-5960)

Users of Firefox are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues.
