<p>
The Mozilla Suite is a popular all-in-one web browser that includes a
mail and news reader. Mozilla Firefox is the next-generation browser
from the Mozilla project. Gecko is the layout engine used in both
products.

<description>
<p>
The Mozilla Suite and Firefox are both vulnerable to the following
issues:
</p>
<ul>
<li>Tom Ferris reported a heap overflow in IDN-enabled browsers with
malicious Host: headers (CAN-2005-2871).</li>
<li>"jackerror" discovered a heap overrun in XBM image processing
(CAN-2005-2701).</li>
<li>Mats Palmgren reported a potentially exploitable stack corruption
using specific Unicode sequences (CAN-2005-2702).</li>
<li>Georgi Guninski discovered an integer overflow in the JavaScript
engine (CAN-2005-2705)</li>
<li>Other issues ranging from DOM object spoofing to request header
spoofing were also found and fixed in the latest versions
(CAN-2005-2703, CAN-2005-2704, CAN-2005-2706, CAN-2005-2707).</li>
</ul>
<p>
The Gecko engine in itself is also affected by some of these issues and
has been updated as well.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
A remote attacker could setup a malicious site and entice a victim to
visit it, potentially resulting in arbitrary code execution with the
victim's privileges or facilitated spoofing of known websites.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround for all the issues.
</p>
</workaround>
