Urgent: Update Your Firefox to Version Now

July 28th, 2006

Firefox Logo Mozilla recently patched 13 Firefox flaws, which 8 of them are tagged "critical".

TechWeb.com reported:

Danish vulnerability tracker Secunia tagged the overall update as "highly critical," the second-from-the-top threat ranking. "[These] multiple vulnerabilities can be exploited to conduct cross-site scripting attacks or compromise a user's system," Secunia's online research note read.

A majority of the bugs will allow an attacker to introduce his own code to a vulnerable system; several of them can be exploited by posting malicious code or content on Web sites and enticing users to visit those sites.

If you are running on 1.5.x version of Firefox, check for new version and download Firefox by clicking on Help > Check for Updates... in the file menu.
