Security patch for Firefox

Share

Mozilla has just released another patch for its internet browser, Firefox, the second patch in a month. The patch is, of course, free and available from www.mozilla.org
The update fixes a security hole which was found by Internet Security Systems (ISS) in Mozilla. The hole makes users of the unpatched version vulnerable to buffer overflow attack, according to Mozilla. Although hailed by Mozilla as proof that the open source model of Mozilla helps to catch such problems quicker, as they are available to everyone, not just a small number of development testers, this news could come at an awkward time for the company as downloads of the Firefox browser are apparently beginning to slow.
