While Microsoft scrambled to issue an out-of-cycle patch for Internet Explorer on Wednesday, Mozilla did some rushing of its own.
The Firefox developer has issued updates to address “critical vulnerabilities” in versions 2 and 3 of its open-source browser.
Firefox describes a critical vulnerability as one that can be used to run attacker code and install software without user interaction beyond normal browsing.
Security, Stability, Accessibility
The Firefox 3.0.5 update also fixes several stability issues and issues found in accessibility implementation, adds the ability to send OS-specific system notes in the crash reporter, and replaces the End-User License Agreement with a new “Know Your Rights” info bar on the initial installation.
