[USN-626-2] Devhelp, Epiphany, Midbrowser and Yelp update



===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-626-2 August 04, 2008
devhelp, epiphany-browser, midbrowser, yelp update
https://launchpad.net/bugs/253462
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
devhelp 0.19-1ubuntu1.8.04.3
epiphany-gecko 2.22.2-0ubuntu0.8.04.5
midbrowser 0.3.0rc1a-1~8.04.2
yelp 2.22.1-0ubuntu2.8.04.2

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart Devhelp, Epiphany,
Midbrowser and Yelp to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

USN-626-1 fixed vulnerabilities in xulrunner-1.9. The changes required
that Devhelp, Epiphany, Midbrowser and Yelp also be updated to use the
new xulrunner-1.9.

Original advisory details:

A flaw was discovered in the browser engine. A variable could be made to
overflow causing the browser to crash. If a user were tricked into opening
a malicious web page, an attacker could cause a denial of service or
possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking
the program. (CVE-2008-2785)

Billy Rios discovered that Firefox and xulrunner, as used by browsers
such as Epiphany, did not properly perform URI splitting with pipe
symbols when passed a command-line URI. If Firefox or xulrunner were
passed a malicious URL, an attacker may be able to execute local
content with chrome privileges. (CVE-2008-2933)
