Update Information:

Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser.    Several flaws were found in
the processing of some malformed web content. A web page containing such
malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute
arbitrary code as the user running Firefox. (CVE-2008-1233, CVE-2008-1235,
CVE-2008-1236, CVE-2008-1237)    Several flaws were found in the display of
malformed web content. A web page containing specially-crafted content could,
potentially, trick a Firefox user into surrendering sensitive information.
(CVE-2008-1234, CVE-2008-1238, CVE-2008-1241)    All Firefox users should
upgrade to these updated packages, which correct these issues, and are rebuilt
against the update Firefox packages.
