Mozilla updates Firefox with three security patches
A new batch of security updates includes three critical Firefox 3 vulnerabilities, two of which also affect Firefox 2.
On Thursday, Mozilla pushed out a new security update for its new Firefox browser. Version 3.0.1 for Windows and Mac addresses vulnerabilities in malformed GIF files on Mac OS X, command-line URLs that could launch multiple tabs when Firefox is not running, and a potential remote code execution by overflowing CSS reference counter.
Meanwhile, Mozilla updated the earlier version of Firefox with 2.0.16 on Tuesday. The update addresses two of the Firefox 3 critical issues--command-line URLs and overflowing CSS reference counter.
Version-specific updates have been pushed out automatically to existing Firefox users.
Mozilla will continue to update Firefox 2 until mid-December.
