Mozilla Patches 13 Firefox Security Bugs

Postby TeMerc » Fri Dec 10, 2010 11:31 pm

Mozilla on Thursday patched 13 vulnerabilities in Firefox, including a re-patch for a bug that was thought quashed in March 2010.

Eleven of the 13 were rated "critical," the threat level representing bugs that hackers could conceivably use to hijack a system or infect it with malware. Of the two remaining vulnerabilities, one was labeled "high" and the second was tagged as "moderate."

The patched versions were designated Firefox 3.6.13 and Firefox 3.5.16 by Mozilla, which continues to provide security updates for Firefox 3.5.
