Firefox Patch; Two Authentication Vulnerabilities
Mozilla on Monday released two new versions of Firefox, 3.5.2 and 3.0.13 in order to patch two critical security issues. The first vulnerability could let an attacker run arbitrary code on a person's computer by sending specially crafted authentication information called certificate and the second vulnerability involves a flaw in certificate authentication technology that could potentially let an attacker gain access to encrypted information or issue a bogus update to Firefox.
The only advice Mozilla gave to users was "We strongly recommend that all Firefox users upgrade to this latest release". It should also be noted that Mozilla has patched the vulnerabilities.
