Mozilla has released
updates for FireFox, Thunderbird and SeaMonkey after memory corruption errors and
java script vulnerabilities detected.
Mozilla reported that the FireFox memory corruption could cause
an exploit and have released an update for versions of FireFox, Thunderbird and
Users of these products should update straight away to help avoid this
The Java script security vulnerability effects versions of
FireFox and SeaMonkey and users should also perform updates, along with the memory
corruption error update.
One of the interesting things about the java script vulnerability is that
it seems that one of the initial reports came from Microsoft, in a bid to share
information and assist in security risk minimization.
We believe that this type of cooperation is vital in the fight to minimize
security vulnerabilities from being exploited.
So kudos to Microsoft and to Mozilla for acknowledging their assistance.
Now it up to the user to keep their software up to date themselves.
Updates for the memory corruption error and the java script vulnerability may be
found via the product updates themselves, or by visiting the Mozilla website.
