Security Issues in Firefox & Thunderbird...

Unread postby unixmuseum » Wed Sep 15, 2004 1:16 pm

The Mozilla Project has issued a warning for a series of "highly critical" security holes in three of its core projects, including its flagship Firefox Web browser and the Thunderbird e-mail client.

The vulnerabilities, which also affect the Mozilla browser, could potentially exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks, access and modify sensitive information, and compromise a user's system.

The open-source group has already fixed the bugs and are urging users to upgrade to Mozilla 1.7.3, Firefox 1.0PR and Thunderbird 0.8.

All these are of course available for download here, thanks to foetz!
