This was originally bug 194617, until Bugzilla barfed yesterday. Entering
Summary: CVE-2006-2779 Multiple Mozilla issues (CVE-2006-2781,
Product: Fedora Core
This issue also affects Fedora Core 5. A lot of the problems fixed in 126.96.36.199
don't seem that severe, but a few of these are serious enough to at least turn
some heads. And it's been public for a quite a while now.
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #193906 +++
Text stolen from MITRE:
Double-free vulnerability in Mozilla Thunderbird before 188.8.131.52 and
SeaMonkey before 1.0.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (hang) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a VCard that
contains invalid base64 characters.
Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird before 184.108.40.206 allow remote attackers
to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary
code via (1) nested <option> tags in a select tag, (2) a
DOMNodeRemoved mutation event, (3) "Content-implemented tree views,"
(4) BoxObjects, (5) the XBL implementation, (6) an iframe that
attempts to remove itself, which leads to memory corruption.

Removing dependency on bug #193906, since that's really a separate issue since
it requires backports.
I still don't see an update for this even in the testing tree.
Kai, Dennis -- I understand you were working on rolling firefox &/or thunderbird
packages yesterday for 220.127.116.11. How is that coming along?
some trouble with build system, hope to have it done by tomorrow.
tb is already out on rawhide
