Numerous Mozilla vulnerabilities

by Nikola Strahija on April 17th, 2006 According to FrSIRT, Secunia, Mozilla Foundation and other security institutions, there are 24 vulnerabilities in various Mozilla products, including Firefox, Thunderbird and SeaMonkey.


Some of the vulnerabilities could be exploited remotely, while others are less critical. A detailed description of the flaws can be found on Mozilla website.

For now, Firefox browser is fully patched, all users have to do is to upgrade their version. The e-mail client, Thunderbird, still awaits for its patches, which should arrive Thursday.

Given the rising number of Firefox and Thunderbird users, it seems that Mozilla is becoming a new goal for malicious attackers. Therefore, Mozilla is planning on developing a regular patch schedule in six or eight-week intervals, just like Microsoft patch Tuesdays.
