Firefox fixes multiple flaws


Mozilla has fixed 13 flaws affecting Firefox, SeaMonkey and Thunderbird. Attackers could exploit the vulnerabilities to take complete control of affected systems, bypass security restrictions, disclose sensitive information and launch arbitrary scripting code, the French Security Incident Response Team (FrSIRT) said in an advisory.

The 13 flaws include:
# Memory corruption errors when handling malformed HTML or JavaScript code, which malicious Web sites could exploit to crash a vulnerable application or execute arbitrary commands.
# Errors when handling HTTP headers received through certain proxy servers, which attackers could exploit to conduct HTTP response smuggling attacks....Security Bytes: Firefox fixes multiple flaws
