Firefox update patches security holes

Mozilla has sent out an update to Firefox, designed to address seven security flaws in the open-source Web browser.

Firefox, released Thursday, tackles a problem that lets outsiders run code remotely and aims to improve the product's stability.

Of the seven vulnerabilities fixed, four are rated "critical" by Mozilla. The new browser version addresses the circumvention of security via an RSA signature forgery flaw, as well as cross-site scripting vulnerabilities. In addition, it patches a JavaScript regular expression heap corruption issue and a memory corruption issue that could lead to the execution of code.
