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.
