Details

Updated Netscape 4.8 packages fixing various bugs and vulnerabilities are
now available.

Netscape is a suite of Internet utilities including a Web browser, email
client, and Usenet news reader.

Netscape version 4.8 contains various bugfixes and updates.

Note that Macromedia Flash is no longer included as of this update. The
recommended Macromedia Flash with security fixes no longer supports
Netscape 4.x. The security issues that affected the Macromedia Flash
player include CVE-2002-0846 and CAN-2002-1467.

It is recommended that all Netscape Communicator and Netscape Navigator
users upgrade to these errata packages.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the
desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network. Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.
