Mozilla Patches Things Up

As it turns out, there were some flaws in Mozilla's software after all.

The open source company today issued a series of patches for vulnerabilities exposed recently in Firefox, Thunderbird, and SeaMonkey, and recommended that users patch their systems immediately.

The patches come on the heels of a scare over a "zero-day" vulnerability in Firefox that was alleged by a hacker at the ToorCon conference earlier this week. In the end, the scare was overblown -- the hacker later conceded that the vulnerability only allows users to crash the browser, not control it.
