Updated Netscape 4.8 packages fixing various bugs and vulnerabilities are now available.
2. Relevant releases/architectures:
Red Hat Linux 7.1 - i386
3. Problem description:
Netscape is a suite of Internet utilities including a Web browser, email client, and Usenet news reader.
Netscape version 4.8 contains various bugfixes and updates.
Note that Macromedia Flash is no longer included as of this update. The recommended Macromedia Flash with security fixes no longer supports Netscape 4.x. The security issues that affected the Macromedia Flash player include CVE-2002-0846 and CAN-2002-1467.
It is recommended that all Netscape Communicator and Netscape Navigator users upgrade to these errata packages.
Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevant to your system have been applied.
To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:
rpm -Fvh [filenames]
where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory only contains the desired RPMs.
Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network. Many people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:
This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system.
