Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2003:163 0 high SHIPPED_LIVE Important: mozilla security update 2003-10-15 04:00:00 UTC

Description Mark J. Cox 2003-04-22 09:02:11 UTC
A heap-based buffer overflow in Netscape and Mozilla allows remote attackers to
execute arbitrary code via a jar: URL that references a malformed .jar file,
which overflows a buffer during decompression.


Fixed (along with other issues) in Mozilla 1.0.2
