Firefox flaws found

February 3, 2006

Secunia issued an advisory today over multiple "highly critical" vulnerabilities in Mozilla Firefox.

Malware authors can exploit the flaws to bypass security restrictions, conduct cross-site scripting attacks, reveal sensitive information and possibly compromise a user's system, the advisory said.

Users should update to the latest version, 1.5.0.1.

Firefox released that update Wednesday, saying on its website that the new version includes improved stability, fixes for a number of memory leaks and other security enhancements.
