Firefox gets a fresh security update

Firefox gets a fresh security update

Mozilla has issued a security update for its Firefox open-source browser, just weeks after it released a large fix to address several browser security flaws.

The Firefox 1.5.0.3 update is designed to address vulnerabilities in versions 1.5 through 1.5.0.2.

Malicious attackers could exploit the flaws to cause a denial-of-service attack, which in turn may allow them to take remote control of a user’s system, according to an alert from security research company Secunia, which rates the flaw as “highly critical.”

 

I worry this might be the beggening of alot of more bad things to come. Only time will tell i hope I am wrong this has been such a great browser.

Google expresses concerns over Microsoft’s Internet Explorer

Google accused Microsoft of not playing fair in its quest for a bigger share of the $10 billion online advertising market on Monday and revealed that it has shared its concerns with antitrust regulators in the United States and Europe.

Google’s gripe: An upcoming release of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer Web browser will contain a search box that in some cases defaults to the MSN search engine

 

If I were MSN I would offer the ability to choose the search box of your choice and also not put itself as the defualt search box.
