Mozilla has patched eight security holes, five of them “critical“, in its open source Firefox 2.0 web browser.
Five of the eight vulnerabilities are rated as critical by Mozilla, as they allow remote attackers to potentially attack or take over users’ machines via certain websites with no interaction necessary from the user.
Two other security threats were rated by Mozilla as “high”, while another was deemed “low”.
Firefox 2.0 was released in October, with extra security features.
