Updated xulrunner packages that fix one security issue are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having critical
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in

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. (CVE-2012-4193)

advisories. You can find a link to the Mozilla advisories in the References

this issue. After installing the update, applications using XULRunner must
be restarted for the changes to take effect.
