	Security Fix Description

Netscape Navigator uses random information to generate session
encryption keys of either 40 or 128 bits in length. The random
information is found through a variety of functions that look into a
user's machine for information about how many processes are running,
process ID numbers, the current time in microseconds, etc. Previous
releases of Netscape Navigator were vulnerable because the size of
random input was less than the size of the subsequent keys. This
means that instead of searching through all the 2^128 possible keys
by brute force, a potential intruder only had to search through a
significantly smaller key space by brute force. This was a
substantially easier problem to solve because it takes much less
compute time and means 40-bit or 128-bit key strength is
substantially reduced.


Netscape Navigator 1.22 (Windows), 1.12 (Macintosh and Unix), 1.12I
(localized builds for all 3 platforms) fixes the specific portion of
our software where this vulnerability existed. We have significantly
increased the amount of random information that cannot be discovered
by external sources from approximately 30 bits to approximately 300

Netscape has greatly expanded the techniques and sources used to
generate the random information. The number of unpredictable bits in
the RNG makes it no lnoger the weak link in the chain.

        Installation Instructions

* Installation
   Version 1.22 is being distributed as both a 16-bit Windows program and 
   a 32-bit windows program.  If you are running Win3.x you must use the 
   16-bit version even if you are running Win32s, because the 32-bit 
   version makes use of 32-bit API calls not supported by Win32s.
   Both the 16-bit and 32-bit versions includes an installation program.
   To install Netscape run the setup.exe program. The Netscape
   installation program will install Netscape in a directory of your
   choice, add a Netscape section to your WIN.INI file, and create a
   Program Manager group and item.

   The 32-bit Netscape Navigator stores preferences in the system registry.

* Please read the release notes under "Help -> Release Notes".

        MAPI Installation
MAPI is now available in the 32bit version of the Navigator in Win 95
for Mail and News.  This is only for Windows 95 and not NT.
As you know MS Exchange is a mail application, it stores and
orginizes your mail.  Just like MS Mail, Netscape Internet Transport is
a messaging service, but different than MS Mail, and it allows you to
send and receive internet e-mail and post news messages in Netscape.
Enabling the option "Use Exchange client for Mail and News" will not
work correctly unless Netscape Internet Transport in Configured for
MS Exchange app in Control Panel.

To configure MAPI, you will need to do the following if you don't have MS
MAIL already configured.
1) Adding Netscape Internet Transport
   a) go to the Control Panel
   b) double click on Mail/Fax icon
   c) click on the Add button
   d) Select Netscape Internet Transport, click on Next
   at this point follow the Inbox Setup Wizard.
   f) When you are done, click on Properties and make sure
      that Netscape Internet Transport is list under Services.

To configure MAPI when you have MS MAIL already configured do the 
1) Adding Netscape Internet Transport to your existing Profile
   a) go to the Control Panel
   b) double click on Mail/Fax icon
   c) click on the Add button
   d) Select Netscape Internet Transport under the list of available
      Information Services. Click on OK
   e) Fill out the the forms for USERS and HOST. Click OK
2) Adding Netscape Internet Transport to a new Profile
   a) go to the Control Panel
   b) double click on Mail/Fax icon
   c) click on Show Profiles
   d) click on Add
   e) Select Netscape Internet Transport, click on Next
   f) enter the Profile Name
   at this point follow the Inbox Setup Wizard.
   g) When you are done, click on Properties and make sure
      that Netscape Internet Transport is list under Services.

If you don't have MS Exchange already installed and you have already
installed the Netscape Navigator, you will need to reinstall the 
Navigator once you have installed MS Exchange.

If you are running version 1.15 or below of Win32s, you will be unable to
install the Netscape Navigator unless you upgrade to version 1.20 of Win32s
or you remove Win32.

You can determine which version of Win32s you have in one of two ways:
    - check the WIN32S.INI file in your Windows system directory
    - if you are running Windows for Workgroups, select the WIN32S16.DLL 
      file from the Windows system directory in File Manager. Then from 
      the File menu, choose Properties. The Version line contains the 
      major version and the build number. 

To remove Win32s, do the following:

1. Remove the following line from the [386Enh] section in the SYSTEM.INI 
   where <WINDOWS> and <SYSTEM> are where the Windows and System
   directories are, respectively.
2. Remove winmm16.dll from the following line from the [BOOT] section in 
   the SYSTEM.INI file:
      drivers=mmsystem.dll winmm16.dll
3. Delete the following files from the <WINDOWS>\<SYSTEM> subdirectory:
4. Delete all the files in the <WINDOWS>\<SYSTEM>\WIN32S subdirectory.
   Then delete the subdirectory itself.
5. Restart Windows.
Here's how you can obtain Win32s version 1.20 which Microsoft refers
to as application note PW1118:
  To obtain this Application Note (number PW1118) and the files
  included with it, download PW1118.EXE, a self-extracting file,
  from the Microsoft Software Library (MSL) on the following services:
   - CompuServe
        GO MSL
        Search for PW1118.EXE
        Display results and download
   - Microsoft Download Service (MSDL)
        Dial (206) 936-6735 to connect to MSDL
        Download PW1118.EXE
   - Internet (anonymous FTP)
        Change to the \SOFTLIB\MSLFILES directory
        Get PW1118.EXE
        OLE 2.02
The Netscape install program for Windows 3.1 and Windows for Workgroups
will install the following OLE2 files into the Windows System directory 
if either there is no existing DLL or the existing DLL is older:
    COMPOBJ.DLL         108544          10-10-94
    MFCOLEUI.DLL        146976           1-13-95
    OLE2.DLL            302592          10-10-94
    OLE2.REG             27026          10-10-94
    OLE2CONV.DLL         57328          10-10-94
    OLE2DISP.DLL        164832          10-10-94
    OLE2NLS.DLL         150976          10-10-94
    OLE2PROX.DLL         51712          10-10-94
    STDOLE.TLB            4304          10-10-94
    STORAGE.DLL         157696          10-10-94
    TYPELIB.DLL         177216          10-10-94
The Netscape installer will overwrite existing OLE2 DLLs with the latest
versions for US Windows. This will not affect 32-bit Windows. For 16-bit
Windows, the only difference between the US and the Japanese versions are
the internationalization of error strings.
Occasionally, the Japanese user may see an English language OLE2 error
message after installing Netscape.
Currently, there are no Japanese versions available for the OLE2 DLLs.
Netscape is working with Microsoft to make the Japanese version of the 
OLE2 DLLs available.
        Running Netscape
What do I need to run Netscape Navigator?
You must have a direct Internet connection before you can use Netscape.
The ability to send and receive e-mail does not necessarily mean you can
run Netscape. There are three requirements for Netscape Navigator 1.22:
    1. A direct Ethernet connection to the net, or a dialup
       SLIP or PPP account from an Internet service provider.
    2. TCP/IP stack
    3. Netscape Navigator software

You can get a direct connection to the Internet through a service
provider in your area.  You will need to get a SLIP or a PPP account
from an Internet provider (for a dialup account).

When you have full Internet connectivity, you need to have a TCP/IP
stack, dialer, and WINSOCK.DLL file.

        Cannot Find WINSOCK.DLL

If you get the error message "Cannot find WINSOCK.DLL" when running 
Netscape Navigator that means your computer is looking for the WINSOCK.DLL
file, which is part of a winsock package (also includes dialer, 
TCP/IP stack).

A winsock package makes it so that your PC can talk TCP/IP, which is 
necessary for Netscape to run. See the "Running Netscape" section for 
details on running the Netscape Navigator, and the "Obtaining a Winsock 
Package" section for suggestions on obtaining a winsock package.

        Obtaining a Winsock Package

You can get the shareware winsock package, which is called Trumpet
Winsock from

Other winsock packages which we have tested without problems are:

    FTP Software's PC/TCP
    Microsoft WFW (Wolverine)
    Microsoft NT
    Network TeleSystems (NTS)

Implementation (general):
Put the winsock in its own directory, for example, C:\WINSOCK,
and include the directory in your DOS PATH statement.

Enter Windows, create a group in the Program Manager for all files
with your winsock program.

Please be sure that the Netscape directory is in your path located
in your autoexec.bat file. You may need to add:

PATH=C:\(name of the directory where netscape is located)
After making this change, save the file and reboot your computer.
