RHSA-2008:0103: firefox security update (Critical)  

Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser.
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-2008-0412, CVE-2008-0413, CVE-2008-0415, CVE-2008-0419)
Several flaws were found in the way Firefox displayed malformed web content. A webpage containing specially-crafted content could trick a user into surrendering sensitive information. (CVE-2008-0591, CVE-2008-0593)
A flaw was found in the way Firefox stored password data. If a user saves login information for a malicious website, it could be possible to corrupt the password database, preventing the user from properly accessing saved password data. (CVE-2008-0417)
A flaw was found in the way Firefox handles certain chrome URLs. If a user has certain extensions installed, it could allow a malicious website to steal sensitive session data. Note: this flaw does not affect a default installation of Firefox. (CVE-2008-0418)
A flaw was found in the way Firefox saves certain text files. If a website offers a file of type "plain/text", rather than "text/plain", Firefox will not show future "text/plain" content to the user in the browser, forcing them to save those files locally to view the content. (CVE-2008-0592)
Users of firefox are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues.

Quick Help

Unknown Tests
There is a hardcoded maximum limit for number of tests displayed for a definition. For a small number of oval definitions, about ~1% of all, hundreds of test have been defined. This causes the pages to grow in size, exceed even 1mb, and they are unsuitable for display in a web page. So they are not displayed.Please refer to the xml definition files if you really want to view them.
evr_string datatype
Represents epoch, version, and release number as a single version string
