Red Hat: Security update for XULRunner

XULRunner provides the XUL Runtime environment for applications using the Gecko layout engine. A flaw was found in the way XULRunner handled security wrappers. A web page containing malicious content could possibly cause an application linked against XULRunner (such as Mozilla Firefox) to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.

Updated packages are available from ftp.redhat.com.
