Fedora Update Notification
2008-11-14 11:11:33

Name        : chmsee
Product     : Fedora 8
Version     : 1.0.0
Release     : 5.31.fc8
URL         : http://chmsee.gro.clinux.org/
Summary     : A Gtk+2 CHM document viewer
Description :
A gtk2 chm document viewer.

It uses chmlib to extract files. It uses gecko to display pages. It supports
displaying multilingual pages due to gecko. It features bookmarks and tabs.
The tabs could be used to jump inside the chm file conveniently. Its UI is
clean and handy, also is well localized. It is actively developed and
maintained. The author of chmsee is Jungle Ji and several other great people.

* Unlike other chm viewers, chmsee extracts files from chm file, and then read
and display them. The extracted files could be found in $HOME/.chmsee/bookshelf
directory. You can clean those files at any time and there is a special config
option for that.
* The bookmark is related to each file so not all bookmarks will be loaded,
only current file's.
* Try to remove $HOME/.chmsee if you encounter any problem after an upgrade.

Update Information:

Updated firefox and xulrunner packages that fix various security issues are now
available for Fedora Core 8.    This update has been rated as having critical
security impact by the Fedora Security Response Team.    Mozilla Firefox is an
open source Web browser.    Several flaws were found in the processing of
malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause
Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running
Firefox. (CVE-2008-0017, CVE-2008-5014, CVE-2008-5016, CVE-2008-5017,
CVE-2008-5018, CVE-2008-5019, CVE-2008-5021)    Several flaws were found in the
way malformed content was processed. A web site containing specially-crafted
content could potentially trick a Firefox user into surrendering sensitive
information. (CVE-2008-5022, CVE-2008-5023, CVE-2008-5024)    A flaw was found
in the way Firefox opened "file:" URIs. If a file: URI was loaded in the same
tab as a chrome or privileged "about:" page, the file: URI could execute
arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2008-5015)
For technical details regarding these flaws, please see the Mozilla security
advisories for Firefox[1].    All firefox users and users of packages
depending on firefox[2] should upgrade to these updated packages, which correct
these issues.    [1] http://www.mozilla.org/security/known-
