Firefox 3.5.8 Closes Security Holes
- — 19 February, 2010 06:13
Mozilla yesterday released updates for its Firefox Web browser to shore up vulnerabilities in the 3.5.x and 3.0.x browser versions.
Three critical flaws (MSFA 2010-01, 2010-02 and 2010-03) all involve memory-related errors that could potentially allow an attacker to run any command on a victim PC. According to the advisories, the holes are already fixed in the recently released Firefox 3.6.
The updates are available for Windows, Mac and Linux, and will bump up the browser versions to 3.5.8 or 3.0.18. If you haven't already seen the automatic update pop-up, head to Help | Check for Updates to get the patch.
