Firefox 1.0.7 is a security and stability release.
We strongly recommend that all users upgrade to this latest version.

This version includes several security and stability fixes, including a fix for a reported buffer overflow vulnerability and a fix for a Linux shell command vulnerability.

Specific changes in Firefox 1.0.7
  • Fix for a potential buffer overflow vulnerability when loading a hostname with all soft-hyphens
  • Fix to prevent URLs passed from external programs from being parsed by the shell (Linux only)
  • Fix to prevent a crash when loading a Proxy Auto-Config (PAC) script that uses an "eval" statement
  • Fix to restore InstallTrigger.getVersion() for Extension authors
  • «Other Stability & Security Fixes»

Just wondering if these two problems are the same thing?

1. Fix for a potential buffer overflow vulnerability when loading a hostname with all soft-hyphens

and

2. IDN link buffer overflow vulnerability


I installed IDN Info 0.6.5 on Firefox 1.0.6 and wondered if this is now unnecessary with this version?
