Firefox fix patches multiple flaws

Antony Savvas

The Mozilla Foundation has issued a patch to fix 10 security vulnerabilities in its open source Firefox browser.

Some of the vulnerabilities are classed as “high risk” by Mozilla as they could allow remote attackers take over a user’s PC if exploited.

One of the most serious flaws allows attackers to add malicious content to users’ trusted websites, as a result of the way Firefox handles frames. 

Another allows hackers to display malicious JavaScript dialog boxes to users, with no indication of origin.

Firefox 1.0.5 is now available for download from the Mozilla website. Mozilla plans to release Firefox 1.1 this summer.
