[slackware-security] Mozilla (SSA:2004-223-01)

New Mozilla packages are available for Slackware 9.1, 10.0, and -current to fix a number of security issues. Slackware 10.0 and -current were upgraded to Mozilla 1.7.2, and Slackware 9.1 was upgraded to Mozilla 1.4.3. As usual, new versions of Mozilla require new versions of things that link with the Mozilla libraries, so for Slackware 10.0 and -current new versions of epiphany, galeon, gaim, and mozilla-plugins have also been provided. There don't appear to be epiphany and galeon versions that are compatible with Mozilla 1.4.3 and the GNOME in Slackware 9.1, so these are not provided and Epiphany and Galeon will be broken on Slackware 9.1 if the new Mozilla package is installed. Furthermore, earlier versions of Mozilla (such as the 1.3 series) were not fixed upstream, so versions of Slackware earlier than 9.1 will remain vulnerable to these browser issues. If you still use Slackware 9.0 or earlier, you may want to consider removing Mozilla or upgrading to a newer version.

More details about these issues may be found in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

New libpng packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, and -current to fix security issues. These issues could cause program crashes, or possibly allow arbitrary code embedded in a malicious PNG image to execute. The PNG library is widely used within the system, so all sites should upgrade to the new libpng package.
