<p>
Mozilla is a popular web browser that includes a mail and newsreader.
Galeon and Epiphany are both web browsers that use gecko, the Mozilla
rendering engine. Mozilla Firefox is the next-generation browser from
the Mozilla project that incorporates advanced features that are yet to
be incorporated into Mozilla. Mozilla Thunderbird is the
next-generation mail client from the Mozilla project.

<description>
<p>
Mozilla, Galeon, Epiphany, Mozilla Firefox and Mozilla Thunderbird
contain the following vulnerabilities:
</p>
<ul>
<li>All Mozilla tools use libpng for graphics. This library contains a
buffer overflow which may lead to arbitrary code execution.</li>
<li>If a user imports a forged Certificate Authority (CA) certificate,
it may overwrite and corrupt the valid CA already installed on the
machine.</li>
</ul>
<p>
Mozilla, Mozilla Firefox, and other gecko-based browsers also contain a
bug in their caching which may allow the SSL icon to remain visible,
even when the site in question is an insecure site.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
Users of Mozilla, Mozilla Firefox, and other gecko-based browsers are
susceptible to SSL certificate spoofing, a Denial of Service against
legitimate SSL sites, crashes, and arbitrary code execution. Users of
Mozilla Thunderbird are susceptible to crashes and arbitrary code
execution via malicious e-mails.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround for most of these vulnerabilities. All
users are advised to upgrade to the latest available version.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All users should upgrade to the latest stable version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge sync
# emerge -pv your-version
# emerge your-version</code>
</resolution>
