Update Information:

Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser.    Several flaws were found in
the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content
could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user
running Firefox. (CVE-2008-4058, CVE-2008-4060, CVE-2008-4061, CVE-2008-4062,
CVE-2008-4063, CVE-2008-4064)    Several flaws were found in the way malformed
web content was displayed. A web page containing specially crafted content could
potentially trick a Firefox user into surrendering sensitive information.
(CVE-2008-4067, CVE-2008-4068)    A flaw was found in the way Firefox handles
mouse click events. A web page containing specially crafted JavaScript code
could move the content window while a mouse-button was pressed, causing any item
under the pointer to be dragged. This could, potentially, cause the user to
perform an unsafe drag-and-drop action. (CVE-2008-3837)    A flaw was found in
Firefox that caused certain characters to be stripped from JavaScript code. This
flaw could allow malicious JavaScript to bypass or evade script filters.
(CVE-2008-4065)    For technical details regarding these flaws, please see the
Mozilla security advisories for Firefox 3.0.2.[1]    All Firefox users should
upgrade to these updated packages, which contain patches that correct these
issues.    [1] http://www.mozilla.org/security/known-
