Mozilla Fixes 14 Security Issues with Firefox 3.6.7
By on July 22nd, 2010

Firefox Next week, the Black Hat Security Conference is scheduled to take place at Las Vegas. Undoubtedly, hackers attending the event are getting ready with their proof of concepts and exploits. In fact, one security analyst is already making the headlines for discovering security holes in Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome and Safari.

In the run up to the event, Mozilla is doing its best to keep hackers at bay by patching up as many vulnerabilities as possible. Yesterday, they released Firefox 3.6.7, which is a recommended stability and security update. This release patches 8 critical vulnerabilities including some that could allow remote arbitrary code execution.

The full change log along with information about each of the fixed vulnerabilities is available here. Earlier this month, Google had also patched as many as 10 vulnerabilities in a Chrome security update.

    I've just downloaded and upgraded my FireFox, thank you very much for sharing. It is quite ironic that these updates come right before the major Black Hat conference, and I'm sure they've taken the wind out of the sails of quite a few hackers who were going to impress with their "skills".
