ATTN Firefox Users!

Mozilla flaws could allow attacks, data access

Multiple vulnerabilities that could allow an attacker to install malicious code or steal personal data have been discovered in the Mozilla Suite and the Firefox open-source browser.

Details of the nine flaws were published on Mozilla's security Web site over the weekend.

Ian Latter, senior security consultant at Internet security specialist Pure Hacking, said most of the vulnerabilities are based on the way the applications handle JavaScript.

Read the full story HERE.

Isn't this pretty old? Pretty sure the current version of Firefox has fixed these bugs...

Basically just upgrade to the version released a couple days ago, and this issue is fixed.

I seem to recall that many here was harping that they were secure. Fact is it's more secure than IE because of the lack of users and less stuff being written and explored about it.

In time, firefox and Mozilla users alike will be bitching about it like IE .

Personally, why bitch about any of them, the hackers and evil people will continue to do shit to any browser out there once they get the chance.

Microsoft probably has its IT boys working round the clock to come up with viruses for Firefox.

That's basically what it boils down to.

Anyone who said that was just being stupid. Firefox's architecture makes it less likely to cause problems than IE, but all software has bugs...

The difference is that the issue is already fixed, if it was MS they would first bury their heads in the sand for 6 months after a someone reported the flaw to them, then when it is open to the public they would bitch about how the people who leaked it are the real issue, and then if you are lucky they might fix it 3 months later...

It is opensource, so people already know the way in and out. There is no "hacking". Thus, patches are fixed in no time. I think it was...a week?...after 1.0.2 was released that 1.0.3 came out replacing those bugs etc.

IE takes months to fix bugs.
