Mozilla Updates Firefox To Fix Flaws (Information Week)

“The Mozilla Foundation releases a security update to both its standalone Firefox browser and its Mozilla suite, a move the organization says shows it can react faster than rivals.”

“The Mozilla Foundation on Thursday released a security update to both its standalone Firefox browser and its Mozilla suite to squash bugs revealed last weekend, a demonstration, said the organization's head of engineering, of the fast reaction advantage Firefox has over Microsoft and its Internet Explorer.

The new versions -- Firefox 1.0.4 and Mozilla 1.7.8 -- patch the browsers against two vulnerabilities made public less than a week ago. Both can be downloaded from the Mozilla Foundation's Web site. Another vulnerability was also addressed in the updates, and a Dynamic HTML (DHTML) problem introduced in Firefox 1.0.3 was resolved, said Mozilla.”
